  • "We were given clear instructions about accessing 22 Beckside, where to park, and when we could arrive."

    Everything was as described, with some extras like biscuits and crisps. We were very comfortable, slept well, the surroundings were quiet at night, and during the day it was delightful to hear children paddling in the beck! It's a short walk along the beck to the village amenities, and to catch the bus into Lincoln. We would have booked for next year at the same time, but it was already booked, which tells you everything!

    22 Beckside is situated in a very pretty village with all kinds of faculties. Yet the cottage is beautifully quiet and tucked alongside the beck which runs through the village. A very special place. Yet again I return home rested and refreshed. Thank you Fran and Mike for providing such comfortable and welcoming accommodation.

    Excellent communication by the owners both prior to the holiday and to check everything was ok once I was settled in. The property is well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing visit. Plenty of extra touches provided, like the scrummy welcome basket. This was my second visit and looking forward to returning very soon. Highly recommended!!

  • "The property was very comfortable, warm and clean and did not lack any facilities."

    We much appreciated the welcome basket and information folder, and Mr and Mrs Spencer were very helpful. There was more than enough room for our party of four and all the rooms were nicely furnished with plenty of space for storage. Nettleham is a very pleasant village well served with a Co-op store, a Pharmacy and three pubs, of which we found the Plough to be friendly and with an excellent Greek menu. The other two pubs were also welcoming and all were within a short walking distance. A local bus was hourly into Lincoln as was a bus to Grimsby. To sum up, we had a great week's holiday here and would certainly recommend 22 Beckside to anyone thinking of staying in the area.

    The village of Nettleham was delightful and an ideal place to stay. Not only was it just a few miles from Lincoln City but it had plenty to offer with a choice of eateries in the form of pubs, cafes and takeaways. Location also great for the nearby Lincolnshire Wolds for great walking. All in all a brilliant holiday.

    It is well placed to explore Lincoln, local walks, the beautiful Wolds and coast about an hour away. Our welcoming host gave us lots of useful information about the area and there were plenty of guides and leaflets left for our use. The cottage is comfortable and very well equipped with everything we needed and a pretty, private garden. It's in a picturesqe backwater next to a beck which is a draw for paddling children and picnicking families on a sunny day.

  • "The beck (stream) runs next to the cottage and there is a short walk alongside the beck to get to 'town' - the shops."

    All basic shops are there plus three takeaways and three pubs, one of which has a superb but not expensive Greek restaurant on the first floor. The village is very friendly and pretty. The cottage is incredibly well-equipped, down to a Yorkshire pudding tin! It's warm, the beds are comfortable and the myriad of information booklets fills two drawers. The bus to Lincoln leaves from the top of a short street just over the beck, about 100 yards walk away. This was one of the best self-catering lets we've stayed in over many years of holidays.

    The owners Dave & Fran were really lovely people and were next door if you needed them for anything.We enjoyed the surroundings with the stream running through the village and the garden was nice and peaceful to sit out with a glass of wine (kindly supplied by the owners). We were not short of sites to visit as we are National Trust members what really made my day was a visit to Bomber Command where the Lancaster bomber was working taking people for a short run around the field (expensive if you wished to take part, around £400 pounds per person which included lunch a bit too expensive for me). The other venue worth a visit is the Transport Museum not far from the cottage, the owner there is a lovely lady who showed us around and we had a really enjoyable few hours there. All in all this holiday was one of the best we have had and we would certainly recommend it to anyone.

  • "Unfortunately, the original property we had booked in Lincoln was severely damaged by previous occupants just a few days before our holiday departure."

    It must have been devastating for the owners. Our trip was for the special event of our daughter’s wedding so it was pretty devastating for us too. Very happily for us Sykes had another property available in Nettleham, three miles from Lincoln. Although, we were not in the city centre as planned, the property in Nettleham was delightful & the village is very pretty. We had a lovely week of sightseeing culminating in a beautiful wedding. Full marks for both the property in Nettleham & Sykes.
