  • “Lovely well equipped cottage in a pleasant area.”

    The duvet was insubstantial, especially for the winter and there were no facilities for disposal of dog poo.

From the garden there is a gate leading out to the adjacent camping area.

Within this area there is a fishing pond to use which have a good selection of fish including tench, bream, rudd and carp.

There is also a grass tennis court and a cricket net set up for the summer months if you are feeling active.

There is plenty of lovely woodland to explore either by foot or by bike including a historic disused railway line, which once was used by the Flying Scotsman.

The property is within easy reach of the town of Alford which is home to plenty of shops and pubs as well as weekly markets.

Alford is a charming market town in Lincolnshire. It is set at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is about 11 miles north-west of the coastal resort of Skegness. There is a wide range of shops including a pharmacy, grocers and two butchers as well as a large shop which specialises in doll’s houses and their contents. Alford has become an important centre for arts and crafts with many markets held throughout the year. The main market is held in the Market Place every Tuesday and Friday with the craft market being held every August Bank Holiday as well as Christmas markets being held every year. Alford is known for its Grade 1 listed working windmill, which is used commercially to produce stone-ground organic flour. Alford Manor House is a central point in the town, with its exhibitions and museum as well as a tea room and open gardens. With Alford being set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to follow or even take a trip to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway or Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens, where you will find plenty of birds and animals, with plenty of space to sit and relax with great views of the old mill. Within 30 mins, you will find the seaside resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe, with great beaches, making a great playground for children and adults alike.
