  • "Duck Pond Cottage is a very special place indeed."

    Jenny and Brian were superb hosts right from the when we booked. I txt Jenny a few times about the cottage and within a few minutes she answered my queries asap, great customer service. Well what can I say about the cottage just absolutely fantastic! It is beautiful inside and out, this cottage is spacious, home from home and furnished to a very high standard it was exceptionally clean and everything you could possibly need for a luxury getaway. Each room within the cottage was stunning, with such beautiful touches to them, well presented to an exceptional standard through out. A lovely welcome pack was also awaiting for us which was a very thoughtful touch by our hosts and to be honest the best yet. Jenny popped round to say hello and to see if everything was ok the first night, even took time to recommend bars, restaurants in the local area, they really go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience. The only downside to this cottage was having to leave it, had a lump in my throat when we left. I honestly said good bye to it. We will definitely be back to this fabulous place. The best accommodation we have stayed in for a very long time. Well done to Jenny and Brian on renovating this beautiful home you should be proud of yourselves. Once again thank you for being superb hosts. See you very soon

  • "We have stayed in many cottages and this is easily the best ."

    The first thing you notice is how clean the cottage is . A lovely welcome pack was there on our arrival and a hello from the owner later in the evening . The owner has obviously thought about what is needed in a cottage and it is all there . All 3 bedrooms were comfortable and roomy . The dining area is main feature though , being able to open the Bi-Fold doors on a hot day was wonderful . The property is very dog friendly . As long as front door is locked and side gate is bolted our dog was secure and loved mooching around the patio area . We cannot praise this cottage enough !

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay it's good to know we are on the right track with what we are doing . Property Owner

    We met the hosts when we arrived, and they lift a lovely welcome pack to get you started when coming on holiday. The property was spotless and well maintained and the kitchen had all the equipment you would need. The property was lovely and warm there was no need for the log fire which was all set ready to go if needed. All of the rooms were very comfortable.

  • "We booked Duck Pond Cottage with high expectations after reading previous visitors comments and we weren't disappointed!"

    Jenny and Brian have renovated the cottage to an extremely high standard and thought of everything you could possibly need on a break away. The welcome gifts were well thought out and extremely generous. We were made to feel so welcome in the village and our 11 month old pup was also welcome to join us in all of the bars and restaurants locally. Long Sutton proved to be an excellent base for exploring and we had an amazing time visiting Sandringham - one of Brian's recommendations! Stamford was another place we would recommend, with stunning Georgian architecture, river walks and plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. We will definitely be returning to Duck Pond Cottage as soon as we can. Having visited numerous cottages in locations across the UK, Duck Pond Cottage is firmly at the top of our favourites list! Thanks again Jenny and Brian, hopefully see you soon.

    We would like to thank you very much for your great comments appreciated by us both we try very hard . Property Owner

  • "A very nice cottage which was well appointed."

    It was all very comfortable and in a good location for the areas we wanted to visit. We appreciated all the local produce and other goodies which were left for us, it was great that everything was suitable for vegetarians. We were surprised how busy the road was outside of the cottage which did disturb us a bit. The owners live next door and were very helpful, especially when we had an issue with the washbasin in the bathroom.

    Thank you for your review from which we try to improve our standards for all future guests, who are either returning guests or no. Whilst we endeavour to implement all comments raised there are certain things which are outside our control, such as the passing of vehicles past the property at certain times. We are situated in a small rural market town, although not on the main road, therefore the sound of tractors and school buses on occasion is to be expected. Nevertheless, we are sorry to hear that this impacted the enjoyment of your holiday. We are so glad to have been of assistance to you during your stay, and always try our very best to rectify any issues that arise as quickly as possible. The welcome pack is picked out with care and we are so very pleased that you enjoyed that too. We really hope that you enjoyed your stay overall and would love to accommodate you again in the future.

    The impression is that of being recently renovated as the whole property is up to a very good standard, very clean and new. The host was very welcoming and keen to ensure that everything was ok for us. A cosy log fire was very welcome. Well situated for exploring both Lincoln and Norwich and the counties.
