The property

This delightful property is situated within the village of Swaby, just a short drive from the charming market town of Alford on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Decorated to a high standard and tastefully furnished, Birdsong Cottage provides a tranquil and elegant place for couples or groups to use as a base for exploring all the beauty of the surrounding countryside.

The perfect spot for cuddling up with a good book in front of a roaring fire.

From this sitting room, doors open up onto a furnished patio area in the landscaped garden, at the top of which is a summer house with outstanding views of the rolling hills and forest.

Next to this sitting area is a spacious open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting spaces.

Upstairs are two pleasing double bedrooms, a single bedroom with lovely views over the garden and a large, modern bathroom with both a separate shower and bath.

The property is sat towards the end of a quiet country lane, at the end of which is a wonderful wooded area with a picturesque lake at the foot of the valley.

Take a seat next to the public footpath by this serene body of water and take in the calming atmosphere, or follow one of the many other footpaths that lead in nearly every direction.

About the location


Mablethorpe 8 miles; Skegness 11 miles; Louth 14 miles; Horncastle 15 miles.

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.
