  • "I wrote a review for VRBO."

    It would be nice if there were shelves or a cupboard for toiletries in the bathrooms, but that is a small matter. We also received three different lock box codes, one of them belatedly, so we need to call your office to receive the correct code. That caused momentary confusion and a bit of panic. Otherwise, the house is lovely. The location is terrific. It was exactly as the listing showed. I do not believe that the VRBO listing shows that there is a clothes washing machine, and that would be very nice to add. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there was such.

    Dear Brian Thank you for your feedback and kind words, we are very glad to hear you enjoyed the house and its location. We hope you will visit in the future. Kind regards, Maggie Property Owner

The property

Castlegate House is a stunning, contemporary holiday home resting in the centre of Lincoln, Lincolnshire.

With the city's castle overlooking the rear courtyard, this fabulous property is well-located in the heart of Lincoln, close to wonderful amenities and attractions.

On-street parking is available close to the property on a beautiful, red-brick residential street; climb the stone steps to the side entrance and make yourself at home.

Inside, you'll find stylish and sleek décor throughout with every inch of the property carefully thought-out.

A large, open-plan living space is the social hub of the house, where all six guests can sink into the plush, light-grey sofas under the stunning chandelier, watch TV, or catch up on the day's adventures in this bright and airy setting.

Step through into the pleasant dining area with soft blue seats to eat in comfort, whilst the kitchen features stylish countertops and trendy blue cupboards, a well-equipped space for the group's chef to impress with home-cooked meals; utilise the electric oven, gas hob, built-in microwave and fridge/freezer, alongside a dishwasher for convenience.

Why not finish the evening with a cold glass of wine at the outdoor seating in the gravelled courtyard?

At night, Lincoln Caslte lights up making for a charming setting to finish the day in a beautiful city and toast to your retreat.

Climb the stairs to rest your head in one of three gorgeous bedrooms, each with ample storage space and classy features; enjoy romantic castle views from the king-size bedroom with a Juliet balcony, whilst a further two doubles await down the corridor.

Those seeking a quiet escape can take refuge in the lovely, first-floor snug, perfect for curling up in the armchair with your holiday book.

After a long day exploring the city, step under the shower head of the walk-in shower room to rinse off the day in a lush setting, with marble tiling, pretty light fixtures and plenty of shelf space to keep toiletries.

The ground-floor cloakroom offers a basin and WC to quickly freshen up before venturing outside, where the wonders of Lincoln await.

Located in the most prestigious area of Lincoln, convenience stores and a range of restaurants, pubs and cafés are within easy reach for your self-catering stay, alongside historic and cultural sites; see inside the 11th-century, gothic cathedral and castle, walk the walls for fabulous city views, or simply wander the attractive cobbled streets, such as Steep Hill, lined with quaint architecture and independent boutiques.

Take a road-trip to the grade I country estate of Belton House, where you can wander the historic deer park, or pack a picnic and head to Doddington Hall & Gardens to tour an Elizabethan manor house with Flemish tapestries and fabulous walled gardens.

If you want to explore further afield, you can drive or take the train from Lincoln's railway station to the likes of Newark-on-Trent, a picturesque market town with guided tours of the historic castle and dungeons, the fascinating Town Hall Museum & Art Gallery, as well as Sconce and Devon Park for sunny strolls.

Be sure to visit Belvoir Castle for quaint strolls around its establish gardens and Japanese woods and you can marvel at the grandeur inside on a guided-tour.

Tranquil and scenic paths await in the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB, a popular haven for walkers and cyclists over green hills and breath-taking landscapes.
