    It's very comfortable and relaxing with excellent beds, sofas, lighting and kitchen equipment (except maybe the knives). We enjoyed our walks from the property, along the Viking Way, especially by the river, seeing lots of birds. We had surprisingly good weather most days, and visits to the coast at Anderby Creek and Chapel Point, Baumber Walled Garden, Louth Museum, Horncastle, and the East Kirkby Lincolnshire Aviation centre. Thanks very much Pat, for the welcome pack, so many good things!

    The Host went out of her way to ensure that everything was as I would like it which made me feel especially welcome. The property is spotlessly clean, the Welcome Hamper included Local Produce so I felt I was supporting the local community as well as having a nice break. The bed is comfy, the wifi good, location is rural but Louth and Horncastle are only about 20 minutes drive away through the very beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds. The village is nice with places to walk, a couple of shops and a pub.

    The Stables is a lovely countryside getaway for peace and comfort, the property was spotlessly clean, well equipped and the furniture was comfortable, good internet too. Locally there are some good walks to enjoy, but the heavy rainfall and fallen trees meant going on the Viking Trail and the circular walk impossible - I just lucked out on that, never mind maybe next time as I will likely return.

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and everything had been thought of. The decoration is lovely and the kitchen is superb. The garden is quite small but perfect for our medium sized dog and was completely enclosed and dog escape proof! It would be lovely on a warm summer's day to use the outside picnic table, alas not in October! There are lovely walks from the doorstep that we enjoyed with our dog. We took advantage of the chip van on Monday evening which was excellent and only £5.50 for delicious fish & chips. Would 100% give a 5* rating and would highly recommend and return if possible.

  • "The cottage is in a quiet, friendly village close to Louth."

    There are two shops and a pub but more interestingly a visiting fish and chip van which is there for approximately twenty minutes on a Monday. The food is very reasonably priced and very good. The cottage itself is excellent and absolutely spotless. The quality of furnishings is again excellent; sofas and beds were so comfortable. Central heating was very effective and the already generous settings could be changed. The kitchen was so well equipped with even an apron being provided. Then there was the welcome box; above and beyond what you could expect. Products obviously bought from the local shop and sufficient for a snack on arrival. The garden is well maintained and more importantly dog proof. My dog loved wandering in and out of the patio doors; we loved knowing he was safe. Great area for dog walking too. The village itself is well situated for visiting various places in Lincolnshire with good road access. There are not enough superlatives to describe this cottage. It is beyond what one could expect from a holiday let and is in the the top two of cottages I have visited. The welcome pack is so generous and is the best I have ever received. The Stables is a home from home and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    A clean, fresh and modern home built in a good design. The upstairs shared bathroom was a nice design with a large walk in shower and a bath tub. To have loads of extra towels, t towels, etc really helps while you are staying away. There is also a downstairs loo and utility area with washing machine in. We have staycationed a lot and this was one of the best! The extras include, a television in both the bedrooms, plus a fan which came in handy for a comfortable nights sleep - as we experienced really hot weather on our stay in August. (The plastic pillow protectors didn’t help, so I removed mine) Everything was left in working order and easy to use and To have two shops and a pub in this rural village is a blessing, and it is a lovely quiet one with very little traffic, except for the tractors who are busy with the harvest. There are country walks from the door with lots of wildlife and horses to see. The little private garden is (small)dog friendly and there’s ample space to park up to two cars near the back door. There is a garage filled with extra stuff like a bbq but we didn’t need it, perhaps will do on our next stay.

I did have to get some descaler for the kettle from Jenny at the J Ward shop, she really does have everything!

The wonderful Post & Pantry shop is almost next door, and the pub a two minute walk away; there's also another general shop in the village next to the pub but we didn't need to use it. With Covid around we didn't eat in the pub but they do a great takeaway service, hopefully next time we'll be able to eat in and sample some local beer.
