  • "Great location."

    Peace and quiet. Really enjoyed our stay

  • "Lovely property well designed & very comfortable, it was all we hoped for a couple of days away."

    A nice touch was the welcome pack & a lovely warm welcome by the owner. I would suggest a couple of hooks in the bathroom for clothing or a robe & that you update the photograph’s on Sykes cottages as the current ones don’t do the property justice. Lastly it’s worth noting the property is over two floors & the only toilet is on the ground floor.

  • "A very cosy, peaceful place to stay."

    It felt so homely I didn’t want to leave when my week was up. This well equipped property has everything you need for a nice break away. Ideal village holiday home that is not far from Louth , Homefield Alpacas, Alford five sailed windmill, Claythorpe Watermill and Mablethorpe. The owners Jayne and Paul were very friendly and the welcome package of bread, wine, milk, jam and biscuits was gratefully received. I definitely would love to stay there again .

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, at this cosy, comfortable cottage, although workmen arriving early each morning to lay a new patio meant it wasn’t quite as peaceful as we hoped!"

    Lots to see, good places to eat, welcoming and helpful owners. Downstairs bathroom made it difficult for my wife with an arthritic knee coming up and down in the dark: not mentioned in the details. Nonetheless, a really good holiday with good weather!

  • "Jayne was there to greet me when I arrived."

    There was a bit of a glitch with the wifi but she sorted it out in no time and there was a great signal all week. The welcome pack – with wine, bread, milk, biscuits – was a kind thought and much appreciated. The kitchen was equipped with everything you might need and the dishwasher was the easiest to operate that I've ever encountered. It was great to cook with gas again. The shower was also user friendly and there was plentiful hot water. The sitting room upstairs was plainly but tastefully decorated and the sofa very cosy.. I slept wonderfully all week. It was pleasant to sit in the little garden when the sun shone, which wasn't often unfortunately, but I'd come here to write and managed a healthy word count. Louth and the coast are an easy run. A charming little retreat which I recommend warmly.

    We found the owners to be friendly and hospitable. With the toilets being downstairs however we had to navigate our way down the stairs in the middle of the night but apart from that issue we would recommend this as a lovely place to stay.

    Reception pack of milk, bread, wine etc very much appreciated. Very friendly owners. We came home a day early only because the weather changed to snow, sleet and rain. An instruction card for the shower and room thermostat would have been appreciated but managed to sort it by trial and error! Definetely recommended.

    It had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday and there were lots of walks and beautiful countryside just outside the door.

  • "A lovely little property in a lovely area."

    We were advised on check in there was a problem with the shower, it was usable and hoping to be fixed during our stay. The shower was fixed which was brilliant. A lovely welcome pack was waiting for us and the hosts, Jane and Paul we very welcoming and on hand if needed them. Yes, you need to drive as not on a bus route but only short drive to lovely beaches and places of interest. It would be nice for a full length mirror and a couple of large glasses for long drinks (shandy/ squash) to be in the property. Not a deal breaker by any means just a suggestion.

    We knew they were on hand if we needed them but they allowed us our privacy to enjoy our stay. The property was beautifully warm and cosy, and exceptionally clean with nice decor. The kitchen was fully equipped with cooker, hob, microwave, dishwasher etc and the shower was piping hot and powerful. The bed was firm, which was fine for me, but didn't suit my wife so much. We felt safe at the 'Herb Garden' and would love to return as we had a very relaxing break. We have recommended it to family members already!
