  • "Lovely property, very warm and cosy, the bed has the deepest mattress I have ever seen!"

    Great shower and bath. The secure garden is great for 4 legged friends, immaculately kept as are all the surrounding grounds, obviously well loved and cared for. Our only gripe was the stools at the table(which we had already seen on the photos) fine for breakfast but not very conducive to evening dining, especially for off season when guests maybe stay in more of an evening, especially us! Or perhaps just us! Other than that a great stay with everything you need, thoughtful welcome basket

  • "Just home from a week at Tawney Cottage."

    What a lovely holiday home. Extremely clean, very comfortable, lovely beds. Great secure garden if you have a dog. Lovely welcome pack on arrival too. Few minutes up the road to Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe. Would definitely recommend and hope to return.

  • "This was my second visit this year and as before enjoyed my stay in a well appointed holiday cottage nothing is too much trouble for the very welcoming owners."

    The cottage and surrounding grounds are kept to a very high standard. One small suggestion it would be nice to have a mirror in the twin bedroom. We will definitely be coming back again. Regards Anne,Pippa, Kip and Betty

  • "The owners Paul and Lisa are so warm and welcoming."

    They left a goodie box and complimentary toiletries which was a lovely touch. The cottage was immaculate and had everything in the kitchen that you would need to be totally self catering. Everything has been well thought out.The enclosed garden and dog walking area kept our Bella very happy. It was lovely to know that Lisa is a qualified vet should we need one. The fish and chip van which visits the campsite on a Saturday is definitely worth a visit as the Haddock was amazing and a great price! (Haddock and large chips made fresh to order only £13 for 2 people).The beautiful sandy beach is just down the road and popular with dog walkers. It was our first time away in many years and we had an amazing time. Thank you Paul and Lisa for being so accommodating. We will be back!

    The Cottage is truely five star accommodation that you feel pampered from the moment you walk in the door, from the welcome goodie basket to the very large white fluffy bath sheets nothing has been skimped on. So much fell in love with the place that I have booked to stay again October 2023.

  • "What an absolutely wonderful cottage."

    It was very well-equipped and had everything we needed for a great stay. The cottage has 3 smart TV's and is extremely comfortable. The bed was so comfortable we slept like a log. The bath was luxurious and we were super chilled. The fact that dogs are allowed was great and the enclosed garden was perfect for them. It is such a lovely peaceful place. I particularly enjoyed sitting out looking at the view, drinking tea and listening to the birds. The site is so well-maintained and the owners super friendly. Highly recommend a stay.

  • "I booked Tawny Cottage for a week away with my friend, and two small dogs for a week to rest, recharge and enjoy the time away."

    The cottage is very clean and well equipped, everything you could possibly need during your stay has been taken into account. It is also set in lovely well maintained grounds. The garden is large and fenced off for privacy and dog safety, also for dog lovers there is even a lovely field available for dog walks with a poo bin. The house is very close to two lovely beaches, one in Sutton on Sea and the nearest one having parking on the beach for £2 per day. The closest and quiet town of Sutton on sea has a good selection of cafes and restaurants which are very dog friendly. There is farm close by which serves farm made dairy ice cream and farm produce breakfasts. Their Lincolnshire sausages are divine. The beauty of the cottage is that everything is within a short driving distance. We would definitely recommend a stay here and would love to stay again ourselves. We met the owners who are a lovely couple who can't do enough for you.

  • "The stay at Tawny Cottage was wonderful, everything was exactly as listed and in perfect order."

    The Cottage does not lack in anything, every appliance you could wish for is provided. And with lovely touches such as the cheese in the fridge, and a box of goodies on the table. Many thanks Paul and Lisa for our very enjoyable stay. We've been recommending Tawny Cottage to our friends and also hope to stay again ourselves. P.s. For anyone with a caravan, the caravan site (same owners) alongside the cottages also looks a great place to stay. Karen

    Thank you Karen. It was lovely to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again soon Property Owner

  • "Loved it - we were so impressed."

    It was clean, decorated to a high standard, has everything we needed and more. It's a great place and location. Loved the garden. The only way I think it could be improved - and this is only a suggestion- is by having an electric car charging station (could take card payment) we struggled. Thank you for a great stay!

    Thank you for the lovely review. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will certainly consider your charging point suggestion, it’s actually something we have been thinking about ourselves. Hopefully we’ll see you again before too long. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was superb and soo well appointed."

    Plenty of kitchen equipment to cook with and soo many fluffy towels. It was bright and very clean. Beds were super comfy, so much so that a lie in was a must. Lovely under floor heating that kept us toasty in the windy weather. Bathroom was super clean with plenty of hot water and a great shower. Great location for days out exploring Lincolnshire. The host was very friendly and was there if we needed. Would love to stay at this property again.

    Such a lovely review, thank you. Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you soon. Property Owner

Alford is a charming market town in Lincolnshire. It is set at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is about 11 miles north-west of the coastal resort of Skegness. There is a wide range of shops including a pharmacy, grocers and two butchers as well as a large shop which specialises in doll’s houses and their contents. Alford has become an important centre for arts and crafts with many markets held throughout the year. The main market is held in the Market Place every Tuesday and Friday with the craft market being held every August Bank Holiday as well as Christmas markets being held every year. Alford is known for its Grade 1 listed working windmill, which is used commercially to produce stone-ground organic flour. Alford Manor House is a central point in the town, with its exhibitions and museum as well as a tea room and open gardens. With Alford being set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to follow or even take a trip to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway or Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens, where you will find plenty of birds and animals, with plenty of space to sit and relax with great views of the old mill. Within 30 mins, you will find the seaside resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe, with great beaches, making a great playground for children and adults alike. For something different, why not visit the towns of Louth or Horncastle, which both have a good range of shops and pubs as well as regular street and farmers markets? Whatever you decide to do, you will not be short of choice for your holiday in this lovely area of Lincolnshire.
