  • "Everything in the cottage was perfect."

    Every facility was thoughtfully provided. The shower wasn't very good, but that would not stop us booking again

  • "We stayed at this property over Christmas."

    The hosts decorated the cottage with a Christmas tree and some Christmas items to make us feel at home. They even left a present on the tree for our dog Skye. I can thoroughly recommend this cottage. it is well appointed and recently decorated ideal for a couple or a couple with a child and /or a dog. It has a secure garden for both along with off road parking. Pub with food within 8 minute walk. Ideal for surrounding towns and cities. Very happy to return in the future.

  • "This is a good cottage."

    Well but not over equipped with all you could need for a week's stay. Fully dog proof garden. Very dog friendly cottage. Internet worked well. Sofa was fine but someone with mild mobility problems might find getting up tricky. May need replacing soon. We would be very happy to stay there again

  • "Enjoyed our stay everything we needed was provided."

    The outlook over the fields was very relaxing particularly when the sheep arrived. The only comment on the downside was that there was no electric razor point

    Hi Rodney, Were really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I was glad for you the sheep arrived - they are very peaceful to watch from the sofa. Thankyou for your feedback about the razor point, next time we have our electricians we will ask them if we are able to do so. Thank you for taking time to feedback Matt and Sharon Property Owner

    The bed was a little soft for me but my partner loved it. The owner Matt was so helpful, we had a tiny problem with the bedroom door it was fixed within hours. The village is absolutely lovely, a shop, secure park & a pub all within walking distance. The people are all extremely friendly & we were made to feel very welcome, especially in The New Inn. Can't wait to come back.

About the location


Sleaford 9.6 miles; Grantham 13.6 miles; Spalding 17.3 miles.

Folkingham is a charming village in Lincolnshire lying between Grantham, Sleaford and Spalding. The village dates all the way back to the Domesday Book of 1086 but was likely established in the 6th century as an Anglo-saxon settlement. The village was previously home to the impressive Folkingham Castle, although the ruins do not remain, the site of them can still be visited. Today the village is home to a local store where visitors can stock up on all of their self-catering essentials and a The New Inn pub. The nearby market town of Grantham is home to the National Trust’s Belton House, a grand 17th-century home with orangery and extensive grounds which you can roam; if you’re lucky you may even spot the resident deer! Alternatively head north to Sleaford which houses the Cogglesford Watermill museum, Navigation House Visitor Centre and the Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum. The village is also encapsulated by the wonderful English countryside where guests can admire rolling fields or visit the Colsterworth Nature Trail or Pickworth Great Wood to experience the great outdoors. Explore all of this and more from Folkingham!
