  • "Lovely cottage that gives a real experience of days gone by."

    It was a great privilege to be there and take in the ambiance of it all. It was home from home in terms of provisions within the cottage.....I would have packed so much less. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for the real deal of old lincolnshire. Patsy x

  • "Great location."

    Handy for the sites of Lincoln. Quirky cottage in the arch - loved it. Very comfortable stay. Thanks for the welcome pack - tasty!! Only suggestion would be to have cleaning materials in each of the bathrooms since all be shared with others.

  • "Such a wonderful place to stay and more “liveable” than most in terms of kitchen equipment etc."

    It was great not to have to nip out for loo roll, for example. The host was responsive and very helpful, and the location was ideal.

  • "We were so pleased with this cottage, it was so cosy and had everything you needed and more."

    A nice touch were the goodies that were left in the Fridge for us. Wouldn't hesitate to to recommend this cottage. Ideal for all ages. We were just there for the weekend visiting the Christmas Market, but I would love to return when it is warmer as it has a lovely garden with barbecue etc.

  • "Lovely cottage and fantastic location."

    We had a small/average sized car so were able to park in the cottage space; not sure anybody with a bigger car could although it was great to have a visitor space booked in the nearby church car park. There were a few minor diy things that need sorting and we left a note for the owner e.g. wobbly table leg on nest of tables, radiator in one bedroom seemingly not working and a drip from a pipe in one of the bathrooms that didn't seem to be harming anything but may have contributed to why the shower changed temperature whilst using. We had a fabulous week and the cottage does have a truly lovely ambience.

  • "Good points."

    easy access to the city, close to brilliant eateries and bus services. dodgy points. poor pressure and fluctuating temperature on ground floor shower, staircase needs attention. I would appreciate a breakdown of the exorbitant booking charge.

  • "A great stay in a superbly located spot."

    A deceptively big property. Saw the reviews others have said about the beds not being as big as they could be and completely agree - there is plenty of space in three of the bedrooms for bigger beds so that was a shame. The welcome gifts in the fridge were a nice touch but a slightly eclectic mix with the milk being best before the day we arrived. The shower room would benefit from an extractor. Apart from that and to end on a positive note it was a very comfortable two night stay and would certainly recommend it.

  • "We stayed as a couple with another couple for our son's 2020 law graduation (a year late!"

    ) and had a great time. The house is perfectly positioned for the Cathedral and the Castle and Lincoln is absolutely beautiful. It was very well equipped, we chose a 3+ bedroomed house our son joined us for two days. There is a lovely garden with three seating areas, very private but great for watching the world go by too! If I had to make any criticism it would be the beds. There are four doubles and one single. The doubles are just too small for a couple, ok I know they are designed for a couple but having a super king at home and most people, I guess, having a king size they are just too small! There is room for a king size in three of the rooms. Otherwise it is a lovely and we all had a fantastic time.
