  • “Exactly as advertised.”

    Lovely cosy cottage with a wonderful large outdoor area. Swimming pool was warm and a fabulous size with a lovely clean hot tub. Plenty of indoor and out door seating. Well equipped kitchen. Enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels with my morning brew in from the garden room. A week wasn't long enough, so much we didn't get chance to do. Robin and Rosie were helpful and on hand if we had any questions. Thank you for the welcome pack ladies. We had a lovely quiet family holiday, just what we ...

    Lovely cosy cottage with a wonderful large outdoor area. Swimming pool was warm and a fabulous size with a lovely clean hot tub. Plenty of indoor and out door seating. Well equipped kitchen. Enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels with my morning brew in from the garden room. A week wasn't long enough, so much we didn't get chance to do. Robin and Rosie were helpful and on hand if we had any questions. Thank you for the welcome pack ladies. We had a lovely quiet family holiday, just what we needed. 100% recommend.

The property

This charming, semi-detached farm cottage is situated on a quiet country road in the small hamlet of Broxholme, pool cottage gives you all the benefits of a quiet rural retreat but is less than 3 miles from the village of Saxilby where you can find pubs and shops and only 6 miles from the historic city of Lincoln.

The cottage sits in a large garden with a pool and gas barbeque for the perfect summer holiday, step out of the pool and rinse off in the garden wetroom before enjoying a drink in the sun on the patio loungers, you can enjoy the pool and hot tub every day and still pack light by using the provided washing machine.

The garden is equally idyllic in the winter; watch, from the cosy cottage, the free range chickens roam with wild pheasants and rabbits in the frost-tipped grass, use the hot tub all year round for an extra-special holiday.

When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed into a spacious sitting room with three large sofas, the fireplace houses a toasty wood burner for cosy evenings playing games or curling up in front of the smart TV.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner which boasts a fitted kitchen equipped with everything you need for the perfect self-catered getaway including a dishwasher as well as a rustic dining table where you can catch-up over a home cooked meal.

Enjoy a breakfast of fresh eggs in the adjoining garden room with beautiful views across the pool and garden.

Climb the quaint cottage stairs to the first floor where you’ll find two bedrooms with plenty of storage and a generous family bathroom and notice the peace and quiet of the countryside.

The bathroom has luxurious under floor heating, a fitted bath and a large walk-in shower cubicle so you can relax in a way that suits you.

The super-king-size bed can be transformed into two comfy single beds upon request and, with an extra single bed available, 5 people can easily be accommodated upstairs, the additional sofa bed downstairs and plenty of off-road parking make this the ideal place for family get-togethers.

Plenty of public footpaths give you the opportunity to explore the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside from your doorstep or take a short drive to one of the fantastic local country parks.

Cycling is popular in the area, try a trail starting at Doddington Hall then enjoy a cup of tea and some famous Lincolnshire plum bread in the cafe before stocking up at the farm shop.

Discover pubs in the surrounding villages for some delicious meals out or try locally brewed beer and even artisan bread baked to order, the Dambusters at nearby Scampton is filled with RAF memorabilia from the Second World War.

Explore more local history in Lincoln at The Collection and Museum of Lincolnshire Life or wander through the historic streets and take in the remains of a Roman arch, the 11th century cathedral and castle, and the remarkable 12th century buildings lining Steep Hill, many of which now house independent shops and tearooms.

Pool Cottage is the ideal base for exploring Lincolnshire or simply having a relaxing holiday in the countryside.
