  • "This is a lovely cottage, was very clean and comfortable with a beautiful little garden, the village is beautiful and has everything you need, shop, pub, cafe, chippy, takeaways."

    Chippy is excellent as is the Indian (Indian at home) which is a short walk through the estate behind the cottage. Proximity to Lincoln is great with loads to see and do in the surrounding area. The only drawback is the on street parking which means parking on a steeply banked area on the very busy A road, leaving the car tilted at a steep angle and needing to open the door into the road to get out, or parking up the road a little on a grass area which was very muddy/slippy.
