  • "We love Poppy Cottage and its location."

    A fabulous dog friendly cottage/gardens/paddock. Poppy Cottage was clean and comfortable and is without doubt now our favourite Lincolnshire cottage to take our dog with us.

    Mrs Barbara AshOct 2021

  • "What a gem of a place in the Lincolnshire countryside."

    The owners were lovely, on hand if we needed anything but unobtrusive we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I don't think you will find a more dog friendly place anywhere, comfort for humans and 4 legged friends. You do need a car for visiting places due to the rural location. We were very lucky with the weather on our weeks stay we were able to go out and about everyday. The dogs loved the enclosed paddock for frisbie and ball play. Huge thankyou to owners kate and Rob and we would recommend this place to anyone. The dark skies at night are amazing for stargazing.

    Everything we was available and Kate and Rob were excellent hosts.

  • "Perfect hosts and location."

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

    Mrs Ann StonerJul 2021

  • "Poppy Cottage, was wonderful place to stay, very quiet with everything you needed."

    We have stayed in holiday cottages for many years and we can honestly say our dogs were made to feel the most welcome here than anywhere before. The secure garden was great and the paddock the icing on the cake. We had a wonderful relaxing break.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Poppy Cottage and our dogs enjoyed the garden."

    Colin CharltonJul 2021

  • "The cottage is described as dog friendly but that is an understatement."

    The property is run for the comfort and enjoyment of both dogs and their owners. Rob and Kate are lovely hosts and obviously enjoy having people stay as well as their dogs. Whenever we came back to Poppy cottage and got our dog out of the car his tail was wagging at the thought of exploring their garden and the paddock. The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is beautiful, in fact I suggested that it could be entered under the National Garden Scheme. This was a lovely holiday enjoyed be all of us.

The property

Heckington 3.1 miles.

A charming annexe-style dwelling, set a few miles outside 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 Smart TV whilst the warmth of the woodburning fire fills the room with tranquillity during those chilly winter evenings.

Drift off to sleep within either of neutrally decorated bedrooms, 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 and paddock area which spans for one and a half acres and has the added benefit of rural views.

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.

The village of Heckington also enjoys a Butchers, Co-Op, a railway museum, the Lido swimming pool, perfect for enjoying the warmer weather, a beautiful 14th-century church, the popular Windmill Microbrewery, and is home to the renowned Heckington Show, also known as the Largest Village Show in England!

Continue onto Sleaford, where you can explore the Sleaford Museum, the fascinating remains of Sleaford Castle, the Cogglesford Watermill, a wonderful selection of art galleries, and the National Centre for Craft and Design.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
