  • “Perfect hosts and location.”

    Excellent base for Lincolnshire’s many attractions. Quite literally the best cottage for dogs too!

The property

A charming annexe-style dwelling, set on the outskirts of the small village of Heckington.

Resting close to the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds AONB, Poppy Cottage promises a relaxing break or an adventure-filled getaway for a couple looking to explore this part of England.

Approached via a rural road and tucked away behind the owner’s property, is where you will find this cottage brimming with character.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed in by the amply equipped kitchen, boasting all the necessities to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal of an evening.

After whipping up your meal settle down around the dining table before sinking into the plush sofa, where you and your loved one can curl up in front of the TV whilst the warmth of the woodburning fire fills the room with tranquillity during those chilly winter evenings, with a sofa bed for sleeping flexibility.

Drift off to sleep within the neutrally decorated bedroom, where you can look forward to waking up each morning within an uplifting atmosphere before enjoying a refreshing shower within the stylish shower room.

Throw open the patio doors to spend a moment within the enclosed garden, where you can soak up the surroundings with a cup of tea in hand, or stretch your legs within the additional garden area which has the added benefit of rural views.

In addition to the enclosed private garden, immediately at the back of the property you will find a large garden that the owners are more than happy for guests to walk around and explore.

For those special occasions, head into the centre of Heckington where you will find a selection of restaurants, takeaways and pubs which are certain to entice all tastes and requirements.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming spot, venture to the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB where you will be able to explore miles of unspoilt scenery with rolling hills, hidden valleys and endearing villages.

Alternatively, the coastal town of Skegness is slightly further afield, but offers a superb opportunity to soak up the sun at the beach, whilst the city of Lincoln houses outstanding amenities and attractions to explore.

Poppy Cottage is a refreshing getaway for a couple looking to get away from their daily routines and spend time within a splendid location.

About the location


Boston 12 miles; Grantham 20 miles; Lincoln 23 miles

A lovely little village placed in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, Heckington plays host to a Grade I listed church and a windmill, which offers events and activities. In terms of amenities you will find a shop, a choice of pubs and bars, a swimming pool and two cafés. Heckington also has the world's only working 8 sailed windmill, and the village also hosts the family-friendly Heckington Show once a year. A wider range of high-quality amenities can be found in the charming towns of Boston and Grantham close by, whilst the striking city of Lincoln is slightly further afield yet is more than worth the trip. If scenic walking and cycling country is what you fancy, venture to the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB.
