  • "Lovely cottage, although the settee and two chairs, have seen better days."

    Well designed with the spiral stairs. Bed very comfortable. Peaceful setting, with only the sound of sheep and cows, and lots of small birds. Husband enjoyed the fishing. Lost count of the amount of carp that he caught, ranging from 6-14lb, and also 2 barbel, 5 and 6lb. The barn owls fly out about 9pm which is a lovely sight to see. Richard was very nice and good to talk to. The hospitality was great, the plum bread was delicious, and thank you for the milk, tea and coffee. All in all, a very peaceful week, in lovely surroundings, very rural. Highly recommended.

    Many thanks for the feedback, always appreciated. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week here which went to quickly."

    Lovely lake for fishing if you're a fisherman or a lovely walk instead. The cottage has all you need for a comfortable stay. Lovely warm rooms. Love the quirky stairs but not really suitable for older people. For those who are thinking of staying here you will have a lovely restful time and still be close enough to towns and shops. Would love to come and stay here again.

  • "The cottage was beautiful, clean, roomy, everything we needed."

    The fishing was amazing, very well kept and some really big carp in there too, take a trolley to transport your fishing gear, its not too far away but its definitely worth the walk! Cannot praise this cottage enough, owner Richard on hand for advice etc. Its not within walking distance of pub/shop but only a short drive to North Somercotes which has plenty of shops etc and Mablethorpe not too far away either Will definitely return!!

  • "We enjoyed the holiday but feels like this cottage is not recommended for elderly as the steepness of the staircase and have to bend down for wondering to the rooms."

    Limited entertainment for kids apart from beach but if you like walking there were plenty. Pets friendly.

  • "Lovely cottage warm and comfortable but best suited to fairly agile people because of the spiral staircase."

    Enjoyed the holiday despite the weather and 2 fish caught on the only day it didn't rain. Definitely need a car to get around as it is very rural but you can access quite a few places to visit, such as Donna Nook to see the seals and Sutton on sea.
