  • "A very pleasant stay in a lovely cottage - as I mentioned to Marian, the owner, the lack of cleaning materials was unusual, but maybe that's just me!"

    The standard of the cottage was certainly in accordance with our many years of experience with Sykes cottages.

  • "What an oasis of a garden."

    A really lovely spot to sit and relax. The hosts have done the garden proud with lots of wild birds visiting the pond. As the bungalow is well maintained and stocked with everything you would need and she has taken into account P.P.I. (investment in people) Good luck to them in the future. The owners are friendly, informative but not intrusive. The weather could have been better for us but that is what it is. The surrounding area more than made up for it. All in all the holiday was enjoyable and found the location home from home which is what we need at our age (70's). Thank you to the hosts.

  • "The property is in a good location to explore the Lincolnshire Wolds."

    The owners were very friendly and welcoming. They had a good local knowledge and made helpful suggestions regarding places nearby to visit. Sadly with covid some of the attractions we wanted to visit were not open, but we still found plenty to do. The cottage is comfortable and cosy, especially once you get the log burner going, which we did each night of our stay and we were toasty. The wet room has a fabulous rain shower. The owners garden is lovely but the weather did not allow us to appreciate it. Very peaceful location.

    The cottage is in a lovely setting overlooking a pond which attracts a variety of birds. I would also highly recommend visits to the Aviation Heritage Centre, RAF Conningsby, Gunby Hall and the Lincolnshire Transport museum.

  • "The owners were very friendly & welcoming, nice property."

    The beds were really comfortable & the wet room was ideal for our needs. The soft seating was slightly low for us but that’s our fault as we have creeky legs. The location of the property is ideal for those who want tranquility but is however, within easy reach of Skegness & Mablethorpe if you want more excitement. Would consider returning.

    We had planned on visiting several places in Lincolnshire during our stay, but as the car broke down and was in the garage for repair for 3 days, these have been put on the list next time.The cottage and all the facilities were up to our expectation.

    The cottage was a real home from home set in beautiful surroundings in the grounds of the owners home. The cottage itself had everything we needed and was well laid out and spotlessly clean. The pond and the gardens were absolutely wonderful and the summer house is another superb bonus. The peace and quiet led to a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
