  • "Very friendly, very clean, lovely cottage."

    Unfortunately owing to partner breaking ankle just before we went we were a little limited in exploring the surrounding countryside, (still highly recommended though).

  • "Absolutely wonderful stay!"

    Hosts were easily accessible but gave us our own space. The barn was beautiful, warm, clean and well-stocked with amenities, including logs for the fire (which was lit for our arrival!). The surrounding walks are so peaceful and we loved going down to the river for a stroll. We went into Lincoln one day which was a very short car ride away, and we even managed a NYE run on the extremely quiet country roads. A perfect, last-minute new year stay. Thank you so much!

  • "We had a lovely two day break at Barn End."

    Everything was there to help us enjoy our stay and the owners have thought of everything, with lovely home laundered bed linen and towels. Having two bathrooms was a real treat with the choice of a bath or shower. Barn End has been converted to a high standard and is located well, only being a short distance to Lincoln and also the surrounding villages with walks on the door step.

  • "This was a very comfortable cottage to stay in with easy access to Lincoln and surrounds."

    The access and comfort was well suited to an elderly person in our party. We ahd a great time and it was great to stay in the Lincolnshire countryside, with its wide open skies.

  • "We were surprised that there was no wardrobe to hang our clothes in."

    Contrary to the information given, we were not met by our host and neither did thy make any attempt to contact us during our stay. The photo on your web site showing the table and chairs by the river gave the misleading impression that this was local to the cottage. You would need to carry these items down the lane, across a large field, through a wood and over a steep bank to get to the river. It was suggested that the area would be good for cycling, which was true, but there is nowhere to store a bike safely. I had to keep my bike in the kitchen.

    Thank you for providing your feedback. I was so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with certain aspects of your stay here at Barn End. You mentioned that no attempt was made by the host to contact you; however, we did speak with you on at least three occasions during your stay, including to help guide you on where to securely lock your bikes and manage the internet, but apologise if somehow we caused confusion. We have since updated the listing to make the information regarding the 10-minute walk to the riverbank be moved to a more obvious position (as currently this information sits in the summary section). Thank you again for taking the time to provide your feedback Property Owner

    also they provided all the basics we needed, eg washing up liquid, tea towels, kitchen foil etc. They also left us milk, a bottle of red wine and some J20s which was a very nice gesture. Cottage was beautiful.

    Great location to explore the area. Lots of birdsong and peace and quiet! It is a beautifully refurbished property with everything we needed. Lovely welcome with a bottle of wine, soft drinks and milk in the fridge! The wood burner was also lit for our arrival. Would highly recommend.

  • "Barn End served as the perfect base to explore the beautiful local countryside on our bikes."

    The Wolds are close by, as is the city of Lincoln, and quiet country roads made for some excellent cycling. The cottage is beautifully homely and cosy, and well-equipped with everything you need. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful and their recommended trip to Doddington Hall for the carrot cake was well worth it.

  • "The cottage is ideal as a base to travel around the East coast/Lincoln areas."

    The owners were very good but let you get on with your break without pestering you. My only real problem was, there not being a shower in the main bathroom - only a trivial thing but most people enjoy a shower nowadays

    Thank you for your feedback. The description does state that the main bathroom only has a bath however we agree that most people enjoy using a shower and the property does have a shower over bath in the en-suite. Property Owner
