  • "We loved Carrington, lovely garden so sit in had the weather been nice!"

    Just a little isolated in the evenings but we didn’t mind. Not a lot going on in the nearest villages but there was some nice pubs which were dog friendly and did lovely food.

  • "We had a great week at Carrington Cottage."

    There was a warm welcome on arrival and the cottage had everything we needed. It is about 5 miles outside Lincoln so provided a great base for exploring both the city itself and the surrounding countryside. We would strongly recommend Carrington Cottage to anyone planning an extended visit to that area.

  • "This is a lovely place."

    Quiet and comfortable. The hosts Carole and John are friendly and supportive, not intrusive. If you want a quiet relaxing break, but still want easy access to a city and its facilities this place could not be better. Excellent for walks and relaxing. Great for dogs. I heartily recommend this property and will be returning.

    Very helpful hosts with a nice area to run around with dog. Only drawback ,being older the seating was quite low and while comfortable,was not easy to get up from. Otherwise had a good time with Lincoln being close by for sightseeing

  • "I chose Carrington Cottage as a base for exploring and photography, it did not disappoint."

    I was greeted by the very friendly owners who respected my privacy too. Very cosy and warm cottage with high quality fittings. Stunning countryside all around, with the Viking Way on your doorstep. Great place if you like wildlife too. I would definitely book again.

  • "The flat is very warm and well equipped."

    It is very rural and easy to miss in the dark, so read the directions well. We may have been unlucky with the neighbours in the flat above during our stay, as they were so noisy. It sounded like they were running up and down all day! My only gripe is that the sofa isn't very comfortable and is quite low and may be difficult for anyone with mobility issues to get off, I have bad knees and struggled.

    Lovely and quiet but within easy reach of Lincoln. Fixtures and fittings are excellent and to a very high standard. Carol and Jon are very welcoming but also respect your privacy. Highly recommended.

  • "Well positioned for the quietness of the countryside but still only 15-20 minutes from Lincoln."

    The cottage was warm and comfortable and suited the two of us very well as a starting point for going out but also as relaxing base for days in when the weather wasn't so good.

  • "This holiday suited our needs excellently as we have 2 active spaniels, and the owners were most accommodating towards them."

    We could open the cottage door and let them out to run on the very large garden. As a warning, perhaps holiday makers should be aware this cottage is situated deep in the countryside...ideal for bird watching and spotting, but not for sufferers of hay fever. Also the footpaths went through fields of cows, which can be a bit alarming sometimes.

You are welcomed inside by a contemporary open-plan living room, tied together with bright and fresh colour schemes.

Dine over a bottle of wine, chat about events from the day, and utilise the sleek worktops for preparing a picnic to take on a hike.

There are two lovely bedrooms to complete the cottage, along with a separate cloakroom.

The double is fresh and clean with a dressing table, mirror and views of green fields, where cows occasionally come to graze.

There is an adjoining bathroom offering a spacious feel and next door, the single room offers the same pleasant aspect towards the back fields.

You are invited to wander the grounds of Ferry House Farm and even bring your horses to the stables if you wish, and ride in one of four fields belonging to the owner.

Make the most of this wonderful location, right in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds, surrounded by cycle paths, with the Viking Way passing through the drive of the main farmhouse.

Enjoy a refreshing drink at the pub after an invigorating walk and explore many more historic towns and villages in the area.

In the summer months, enjoy the open-air theatre, pop and rock concerts and re-enactment weekends in the castle grounds. The castle also houses Lincoln’s Magna Carta.
