  • "Robin was an exceptional host and couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasant one."

    Unfortunately, the neighbouring guests were found to be very unreasonable as they expected us to request use of the communally shared facilities such as the pool and felt that they should be given an invite to shared outdoor meals with our friends and immediate family. Although the accommodation was family-friendly with a basketball court, bikes and a tennis court, the two neighbours who had hired the larger cottage were displeased with the bouncing of a basketball at dusk during the school holidays. In consequence, we took the children to local parks to play so as not to spend awkward moments around the neighbours. Once again - thank you Robin for all that you did for us. You're an absolute superstar!

  • "Pool Cottage is such an incredible, and majestic place to stay at and relax at."

    Whether it be resting on the side of the pool, getting a few laps in, sleeping in the comfortable beds, cooking up a succulent barbie sitting down in the lovely warm hot tubs or just sitting down watching the day go by. Second time there, this time staying for a week and it just flew by. Not enough praise can be given to the owner for how amenable she is and how much care and attention she gives to her guests. It makes my girlfriends world how much time Robin is able to spend with her youngest and even with the chickens. Would highly recommend that anyone looking at this to come and stay a while and enjoy this wonderful little slice of heaven.

    The house was warm and cosy with everything you would need for an enjoyable week. We used the gas BBQ on several occasions, which was fabulous. The hot tub was in a private location and was just wonderful to get into after a busy day sightseeing! It was a shame we couldn’t use the pool like we did in the summer but it was just too cold!! Thanks to Robin for the fresh eggs, spring flowers, chocolate brownies and wine. I recommend Pool Cottage you will love it!!!

  • "I have two young children and we really enjoyed our stay."

    Its a lovely house with underfloor heating and a fire in the lounge which made it very cosy and warm. We even sat in the conservatory looking out into the garden for another peaceful coffee spot. The master bed is massive with comfy crisp bedding and easy to see into the kids room if needed. The shower is lovely, hot and powerful. The hot tub was great, easy to open and private. The pool we knew would be cold as its winter but it was great that we could still go in it for a challenge. The kids enjoyed the inflatable boat that Robin had provided, pretending they were on an adventure and staying out of the water. We even managed a game of tennis on the court. It was nice to meet the owner (Robin) and we enjoyed seeing her around and chatting with her. We would have been happy to share the garden with next door although there was no one in when we were there but it would be a great community feel. Robin let us collect and have the apples and feed the chickens too. We took bikes and there was a hose to wash them down and were stored safety round the back of the house. The area is quiet, flat and great for a spot of road biking. The foss way is a 10 min cycle away or if you have kids that can't go on the road yet you can park at the pub (5 min drive) and access the foss way (canal type of cycle path) We loved Skellingthorpe woods to cycle round and stop at all the dens that had been built.

  • "What a fantastic property!"

    It can be rented in conjunction with the next door property ( the big splash) or separately. There is a hot tub and pool which are fantastic . The owner ( Robin) is lovely and allowed the children to feed the chickens each day. We were provided with fresh fresh eggs , milk and some yummy chocolate brownies . The garden and grounds are beautiful and well looked after . All rooms in the property are well equipped including the kitchen with plenty of dishes , pans and even an air fryer . There were ample towels for the house as well as towels for the pools and hot tubs . The property is located in a peaceful and quiet area yet only a short drive into the city on Lincoln . We throughly enjoyed our long weekend away and we are already discussing dates for our next visit .

  • "We had such a lovely week at Pool Cottage."

    The cottage itself was lovely and had everything we needed. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The pool really made the holiday. We all used it every day, even in the rain. The kids loved the diving board. Hot tub was great as well. We played tennis every day too. The garden itself is also very pretty and the chickens were lovely. Robin was a lovely host. She made you feel very welcome and it was lovely to chat with her. The brownies she made went down a treat and she was kind enough to let us have the ingredients to bake more one day. Fresh eggs from the chickens and a bottle of wine were a nice touch as well. We have recommended it to friends who have also stayed and would definitely recommend it to others. Lincoln Castle and Cathedral were a nice day out, Burton Waters boat hire was good, and we had a good day at Skegness Fantasy Island. Lots more to do as well but nice to relax by the pool.

  • "We stayed at Pool Cottage in the summer 2022 after spending Easter in The Big Splash."

    Robin is an absolutely wonderful host and our children love her to bits. The property itself is very clean, cosy and perfect for family gatherings. The Hot Tub is private and a luxury added bonus. Our children vary in age from 18-5 and they were never bored. Gorgeous garden, lovely pool, chickens to collect eggs from, sports pitch for football, basketball, hockey, tennis etc, bikes to borrow and ride and much more. There’s so much to do here that you may never need to leave but if you do, there’s lots to see and do in and around Lincoln. We knew at Easter that this would become a family favourite. Our daughter had made a firm friend in Robin and they write and stay in touch. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We will most definitely be back again and again xxx

  • "We had a lovely stay however there are a few issues we would like to raise: - Cold pool, advertised as heated between May and Sept."

    On arrival (Friday) it was cold and remained cold until Monday. The owner arrived back on Sunday and advised us that she had turned it off while she was away and would start the heating up process. So we missed out on 2 and half days of heated pool. The pool was freezing and we based the purchase of this holiday on the fact it was a heated pool so we could have use of a warm pool despite what the British Weather threw at us. This appeared to be the norm and no apology was offered up. We did mention in leaving form and feel we should be compensated for this. - Moths, forgot to mention this on the leaving form. The property is beautifully clean, However there are a lot of moths and there were present in the built in wardrobes. So we did not unpack we lived out of our suitcases. Possibly needs a bug spray, as no one wants to take moths home to their wardrobes. - The Owner. Now we know she lives on site, its her home. But on occasion it did feel like we were being watched. She sat on the end sofa by the pool and it kind of put you off coming out into the garden, assuming we could use the facilities at all hours (late evening). This definitely put my eldest off from going out on his own or use the pool without one of us present. Its not something you can raise while on holiday as you would feel awkward for the rest of the break. She probably shouldn't encourage children to do handstands on the diving board as she is not aware of their skill levels, thankfully we were there to control that. Plus it feels odd that we are using the pool and her neighbour/cleaner comes along to have a swim in the evening to. It does feel like an open house where the neighbour drops by un-announced which puts you on guard as you don't know the people wondering around the property. Maybe a note mentioning that people will be dropping by and a note referencing when the pool will be closed every evening so you can get your late swims in.

  • "This was an amazing holiday from start to finish."

    The host Robin made us feel very welcome and was at hand whenever we needed anything. We all made good use of the pool and hottub (both were maintained everyday). My daughter loved feeding the 4 rescue chickens and Robin let her collect the chicken eggs. It also had a tennis court which you used at your own risk as its very gravely was a great surprise and the older kids loved using it. The pool is shared with whoever has rented the property next door, but this was fantastic for us as they were great company and had kids of a similar age. They all played together and all the adults sat every night around the pool and just chatted away. I normally need a holiday after having a holiday but this time I didn't. It was just so chilled out. Thank you Robin hostess with the Mostess.

  • "What a superb holiday home, everything you could wish for and more."

    We were on holiday with our daughter and grandchildren aged 11 and 14 and were unsure if cottage was too small but that was not the case, the extra bed was comfortable and not too small and there was plenty of space for us all. There was everything and more provided that you would need. Unfortunately our holiday was in February so we didn't use the pool but it looked so inviting. We did however use the Hot Tub every night, it was glorious! We went to Lincoln twice, it only 6 miles away, and a couple of other trips recommended by the owners we really enjoyed them all. I would also like to mention the free aerobatic displays by the red arrows who are stationed at RAF camp a few minutes away. The only negative was that the TV reception wasn't very good it needed a boost, but who goes on holiday to watch TV. We all had a wonderful holiday and will return, next time in warmer weather to try out the pool.

    The owner is very friendly and the chickens very good at laying eggs for our breakfasts. The kitchen is well-equipped, the hot tub was private and relaxing, the swimming pool I will leave to others more hardy at this time of year but I'm sure would be lovely in warmer weather. We had an excellent holiday here, with lots of free displays by the Red Arrows as an added bonus! I would recommend Pool Cottage for a relaxing family break, and may well be back myself.

    Tidying up around the grounds and tennis court (better still a new tennis court) would make this property much more luxurious. It looks like the hot tub had plans to be moved which would be a bonus for improved privacy. Internally, the double bed needs replacing as it's not comfortable but otherwise inside the cottage is perfect! Some lovely welcoming touches. All in all, an excellent property in a great location with a lovely host.
