  • "This is genuinely one of the best holiday cottages I have stayed in."

    Millside is so well designed, such a good use of space. It was spotless when we arrived. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and it is in a fantastic location, local shops, restaurants and pubs just a few minutes walk and in the other direction the city centre. The parking permit was left out ready to use straight away. The treats and milk left were very welcome. The courtyard was lovely to sit out and with the view of the windmill. I would love to return to Millside in the future.

    Spotlessly clean. Parking right outside, we did not need to use our car as walking into Lincoln was easy. Being next to the windmill was lovely and we ate our breakfast in the garden. The welcome pack was nice. Bed was very comfortable. Had a relaxing stay and would love to return.

  • "Another fantastic stay at Millside."

    This is a wonderful cottage in a great location. The cottage is beautifully furnished and very comfortable and the little extras in the welcome pack much appreciated. Very easy walking distance to the castle and cathedral and several excellent restaurants which meant we didn't need to use the car that much. However never had any difficulty parking even over the bank holiday. We will definitely be back again! Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and thank your for choosing to come and stay at Millside for a second time. We were pleased to hear that it was another good experience for you and look forward to welcoming you back again. Property Owner

  • "Wow what a wonderful home greeted us, the whole house was perfect in design and comfort."

    Everything had been thought of and the welcome gift was an added touch. Parking was perfect, but we decided living so close to all the historic sights, that walking was the better option. We will definitely be returning and the owner deserves praise for their attention to detail. Whoever designed the rooms has excellent taste, even the garden, although simple, was neat and useable with a wonderful view of the windmill.

    Thank you for your very kind review. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the location and all that Millside had to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Situation is fantastic."

    In the high part of Lincoln, a short level walk from the castle, cathedral and old town. Even closer is a decent supermarket (2 mins walk) and several takeaways. Parking is not an issue at all. There were always spaces in Mill Road quite close to the house. If you want to move your car right to the house, spaces open up during working hours. The property is a modernized terrace house which is clean, roomy enough and comfortably furnished. Our only negative comment is that the stairs are very steep with shallow treads and you cannot get a strong grip on the handrail provided. Felt a bit precarious when descending,

    Thank you very much for your great feedback regarding your stay at Millside and that you found it an ideal location to explore Lincoln and all it has to offer and hope to welcome you back to Millside in the future. Property Owner

  • "The scores given suggest total contentment with the accommodation."

    Parking outside potentially could have been an issue but Zone 4D obliged graciously. The only thing we would request would be larger bath towels. I hope the owner will be happy with the way we left the house too. Apart form sheets and towels left in clear sacks one would hope it would look like no one had been there. Just nice to get a return thank you.

    Thank you for your kind review. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Millside. We are sorry to hear that you may have struggled to park directly outside the house, but the parking zone area is quite generous. We take note of your comment regarding the bath towels. The ones we use are hotel standard size. The house was left very clean and tidy, thank you, this was much appreciated and we hope that you would consider staying at Millside in the future and look forward to welcoming you back.

  • "This is a wonderful holiday 'cottage'."

    Absolutely everything you could wish for. We stayed as a couple but would be equally well-suited to a family. Great location for exploring Lincoln which is a beautiful historic city where all encountered were friendly and welcoming. Didn't have to contact owners during the stay but was impressed when I had a query the week before and received a reply within minutes.

    So great to hear that you had an enjoyable break at Millside. We are pleased that you found you had everything you needed and that us Lincoln lot are so friendly! We appreciate your lovely comments and hope that you would consider staying with us again. Property Owner

  • "Property exceeded all expectations generated by the photos online."

    Have never rented such an immaculate cottage before. Perfect location and absolutely no problems with parking. Cosy comfortable stay. Kitchen very well equipped. Lovely bed linen and towels. Suggest two minor additions to house manual - recycling bin goes out every other week, and better description of hot water and heating would have been welcome.

    Many thanks for your great feedback. We are really pleased that the cottage exceeded your expectations and you found that you had everything you needed. Thank you for your suggestions. Although we do not expect guests to put the bins out we are very grateful when you do and so we will update our welcome pack accordingly with extra information and we will endeavour to simplify the heating and hot water manual. We do hope that you will consider staying with us again and we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Very high quality refurb."

    Very well equipped. The owners provided an excellent welcome pack. Very interesting that next door is a windmill. And it’s an excellent base to explore the very historic Lincoln - ten minute walk to the Cathedral. Despite warnings about the availability of parking, we had two cars and had no difficulty. No hesitation in recommending.

  • "Beautiful little terraced cottage."

    Decor throughout is so lovely. Ideally positioned for visiting the cathedral quarter of Lincoln, with its cathedral, castle, cafes, wine bars and restaurants. Kitchen well equipped, modern and easy to use. Having two bathrooms is great - one on both floors. Bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. Two big sofas in the lounge made relaxing in the evening very comfortable. The only thing that was a challenge is the parking. The parking permit is super helpful but trying to park near the cottage was a challenge and I did not feel totally comfortable with not having the car nearby. Car was fine in the end and I’m not sure what the owners can do about such busy parking - perhaps negotiate with the windmill owners to see if they can rent a space in their unused car park and have a key entry system so that it remains private? It didn't impact our holiday at all. Would definitely book again.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback, we are really pleased that you enjoyed the cottage and all that Lincoln has to offer. Sorry to hear you had a problem parking outside the cottage, this may be due to it being the school summer holidays and the street being busier than usual. We are glad to hear that you would book again and look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner
