    “It should be noted somewhere in the description that the log burner that is shown in some of the photos and noted in the description "Fuel, power and starter pack for stove inc.”

    in rent" is no longer in situ. Even better would be to update the photos to show a true representation. This was a disappointment for us as one of the reasons we had booked the cabin was for its log burner, we were looking forward to snuggling up to a cosy fire over our Christmas break but alas not to be. ...

    in rent" is no longer in situ. Even better would be to update the photos to show a true representation. This was a disappointment for us as one of the reasons we had booked the cabin was for its log burner, we were looking forward to snuggling up to a cosy fire over our Christmas break but alas not to be. The cabin is located in a very quiet village, overlooking fields. We assume the welcomed tasty eggs that were left at the property on our arrival (along with a pack of Christmas biscuits) were from the resident chickens, which are in the coop adjacent to the garden. The owners were very pleasant, left us alone and let us borrow their shared freezer. The barn front door can be a bit temperamental, on two occasions it wouldn't unlock easily. The clean cabin has a generous size bedroom with a comfortable mattress, we slept very well. The kitchen is compact and bijou, we had pre prepared meals which helped on this part. We would have preferred a curtain be placed along the back-patio door to make the room feel more homely in the evening instead of looking straight out to rain and reflection of yourself on the sofa in the evening. The side gate on the gravel path way, although it does mention in the hand book to check its closed before letting your dogs out, we read this on day 2 once we settled in. It does mean that in the evening as you cannot see the gate from the patio door you need to go out, down the gravel drive way (as its pitch black) to check in all weathers. On the first night one of our dogs, we found at 5 AM in the dark (morning ablutions) in the owners back garden. The gate had somehow opened during the night, thankfully he had not got on the road but not ideal in the pitch black in our Pj's to have such a fright. We made the gate (what we thought) secure again but it opened another 4 times during our stay. We would suggest a secondary gate be put in place further up the gravel. Wonderful walks in the surrounding area and good quiet beaches with comfortable sofa to retire to at the end of our walks made for a much-needed break for humans and dogs.

    Many thanks for your comments. I would like to point out that the property was previously advertised having a log burner but this is no longer in affect. As you can see from the listing, it does not advertise such a feature and I can only apologise for the assumption made. With reference to your comments about the gate, it appears this was in fact damaged by the weather during your stay which we were not made aware of at the time. To put your mind at ease, this has since been repaired in full working order. I am delighted to see that you had enjoyed your stay and would love to see you holidaying with us again in the future. Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Louth 9 miles.

This lovely bright and cheerful log cabin is set within the owner's land, in the small hamlet of Authorpe, nine miles from the pretty market town of Louth.

With wide views over arable farmland, it provides a tranquil retreat for couples wanting to relax and recharge their batteries, while being within easy reach of the Lincolnshire coastline and historic towns.

With mainly ground floor accommodation, there are spacious rooms, with a light and airy sitting room painted in blues and whites creating a coastal feel.

While the high apex beamed roof houses a small snug room on a mezzanine floor.

With a generous sized bedroom and a separate shower room, this very comfortable property feels homely and inviting.

The immediate area offers good cycling and walking opportunities, with quiet flat country lanes and a network of public footpaths.

The charming, historic town of nearby Louth is a delight, with its quaint narrow streets, independent retailers and majestic central church.

With an excellent array of pubs and tea rooms, this “capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds” will appeal to all.

Be sure to visit the nearby coastal seaside towns of Mablethorpe, Cleethorpes and Skegness, with their traditional attractions and long sandy beaches that will appeal to all.

Mablethorpe is home to a seal sanctuary and from October to December you can visit the grey seal sanctuary at Donna Nook where you can watch the pups being born in their natural habitat.

With such a variety of attractions in the area, a visit to The Nook will be the first of many.
