  • Mr White

    “A charming cottage that met our needs, it was warm and comfortable and the location in the village is excellent.”

    Just a couple of negatives, the cottage is not suitable for anybody who is a little unsafe in their balance, the stairs are very steep with narrow treads, and the steps (level changes) are significant and can catch you out. It would also have been nice to have been welcomed onto the premises as we have in the past, but I guess the COVID-19 rules mitigate against that occurring.

The property

Enjoying a wonderful position in a peaceful corner of Lincolnshire is the quaint stone-built Lilac Cottage, situated within the charming village of Ingham.

Promising superb holiday accommodation for five people, Lilac Cottage is the ideal base for families to call home as they explore this part of the countryside, with the beauty of the Lincolnshire Wold AONB resting a scenic drive away.

Enter into the cottage to find the contemporary kitchen, boasting a good range of appliances including an electric oven, induction hob, microwave and fridge so that you can cook up a family favourite dish, whilst overlooking the pretty lilac bush, which the cottage is named after.

The space also comes with a washer/dryer so that you can easily freshen up your belongings after a wonderful countryside walk.

Delight in your dish within the characterful sitting/dining room, where you will find quaint dining table and two armchairs, which are awaiting to be sunk into as the woodburning stove offers a gentle warmth during a winter’s evening.

From here, you will find the welcoming sitting room, where the exposed beams and exposed brick wall frame open fire and two plush chesterfield sofas are positioned for enjoying the TV 35" with Firestick, whilst the fire crackles in the background.

A climb up the stairs after an adventure filled day will bring you to three bedrooms, adorned with ample storage and a refreshing ambiance to wake up to each morning.

Choose between a king-size bedroom, a double bedroom and a single bedroom, designed to offer a sleeping arrangement to suit an array of party make-ups.

Be sure to relax into your evening by taking an indulgent soak within the contemporary roll-top bath, or choose a refreshing shower if you prefer.

Each morning, during the summer months, look forward to an alfresco breakfast on the courtyard patio area to front of property, boasting a bistro table and outdoor seating and then look forward to returning to the spot during a balmy afternoon to pop open a bottle of fizz.

From the doorstep of the cottage, you will be delighted to find a shop so that you can pick up any treats and essentials, a choice of two country pubs serving local ales and good food and be sure to enjoy a fish and chip supper from the mobile van that visits the village each week.

Immerse yourself in the local history by visiting the RAF Scampton Heritage Centre, featuring exhibitions from the First and Second World War or venture into the nearby town of Lincoln, where you can pay a visit to Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln Castle, Doddington Hall and Gardens, accompanied by a larger selection of places to eat and drink.

Outdoor enthusiasts can venture to the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB, a wonderful landscape of woodland, grassland and abandoned chalk pits, which provide habitats for rare flowers and wildlife; the AONB provides endless opportunities for walkers, cyclists and wildlife spotters.

Other attractions includes the National Trust owned Belton House, the National Trust property of Tattershall Castle and the charming Steep Hill tourist street, offering something for the whole family.

Bring your loved ones to Lilac Cottage for a superb stay in Lincolnshire.
