  • "We had a terrific stay at this lovely cottage with our 2 labradors."

    The house had everything we needed for us and our 4 legged friends, with plenty of space to chill out together. The neighbours were lovely and we really appreciated the fabulous welcome box the owners provided. The location was great for both countryside and beach dog walks. It's obvious that the owners take pride in making sure guests can make the most of this lovely property. Thank you so much.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay at Rose Cottage."

    Rose Cottage is well maintained and clean and provides a typical cottage style feel to the property which we like. We had 4 dogs with us and they all were comfortable and enjoyed their stay. The property has a locked gate to the garden which kept our dogs secure and safe. Overall this was a very enjoyable holiday and we would not hesitate to book again in the future.

    This hidden gem was Perfect. Our main concern was our 3 Jack Russell’s. They tested every inch and didn’t escape. Large area for them too. We visited the beaches which weren’t to far away. Louth is also very beautiful. Few minutes away. Cottage its self is faultless. Views very pretty. Pub very close by. Lovely welcome pack. Owners fantastic. Thank you Ian & Lorna.

  • "Stayed 18th August for a week, had an absolutely wonderful time."

    Everything in the cottage we needed. Lovely surroundings and walks from the cottage are good too. We enjoyed our walks through the farm and legbourne wood, so peaceful and full of nature. We even had a nest of swallows in the cottage porch which was fascinating to watch. Only thing I will say is TV signal is not brilliant but didn’t bother us in the slightest as there was Netflix, bbc, itv x etc etc if you did want to watch a bit of tv (we didn’t ) Louth is 10 minutes away, great for shopping and Hubbard hill and the canal nice for walking the dog. 20 minutes to mablethorpe if you want the seaside, we did go once but preferred the quieter places. Communication from the owners was fantastic and they are easily contactable if you need anything. Hoping to return next year

  • "Excellent holiday at Rose Cottage."

    Good location and great for dogs with the available outdoor space. We would have liked more pans for cooking but that is a very minor complaint. Beds were comfy but be careful on the staircase. Overall we had an excellent time at Rose Cottage and would recommend to family and friends.

  • "Rose Cottage was a great place to stay for a week."

    The weather didn’t let us down which always helps. Super location for places to visit we would definitely recommend Louth. Moggs Eye beach for walks with dogs. The cottage was clean and welcoming with a nice welcome pack. The splash pub had great food. The cottage is a great place for anyone that loves getting up close with nature. The cottage is close to a main road but for a weeks it’s not a problem and you are overlooked by the neighbours next door which can’t be helped. Dogs were safe in the garden although they weren’t keen on the stones and Daisy would not use the steps so did hurt her foot jumping off the wall. Overall a lovely stay, much appreciated.

    Super clean and everything you need for a relaxing stay. Lovely enclosed garden , sun trap if you are luckily enough to get a nice week like we had. Neighbours nice and friendly but never intrusive. Nice welcome pack. Could not ask for more. Will definitely be looking to book a third visit in the future. 5*.

    Dear Mark, thank you so much for leaving us such lovely feedback, it really is so great to hear. We were so pleased to welcome you back for a second visit and we would be delighted to see you back for a third :-) All the best, Ian & Lorna Property Owner

  • "Location to the main road a problem but did get used to the noise eventually our fault we should have Google mapped it rather than rely on the brochure write up."

    Couple of maintenance items needed fixing that owner did really quickly surprised these hadn't been picked up before we had the cottage really rather obvious. Obviously the neighbour doesn't like the property to be a holiday let, one day we sat in the garden to get the last of the sun so she came out and cut the grass again on her ride on mower even though she had done it that morning covered us in grass and stones so we had to go in. She then came out shouting about how we had left the car near the road and it blocked her view so I had to explain to her we were going out very shortly.

    Dear Sonia, It’s very disappointing and rather upsetting to read such (very) negative feedback about your stay. We work incredibly hard to ensure the cottage is a spotlessly clean, welcoming and comfortable place to enjoy your holiday. Something that we certainly feel is backed up by having had so much lovely feedback previously, both with Sykes and our previous agent, not to mention all the returning guests. The 2 small issues you reported on Sunday morning were sorted first thing on Monday and as I said at the time, I was grateful you had brought them to my attention. Not living at a property, it is difficult to know everything is always working as it should. Needless to say, anything reported back to us is always acted on as quickly as possible and actively encouraged. Finally our neighbours are really lovely and have enjoyed getting to meet people from all over the country these last few years. Again, this is something that has often been mentioned in our previous positive feedback. Kind regards Ian & Lorna Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in dog secure gardens overlooking the countryside."

    Very near Louth but within easy distance of the coast and Lincoln. There was no TV reception but we were able to watch Netflix every night. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We had to use the central heating because we had a cold snap of 13C all week! The cottage heating up quickly and the remote control was simple to use. We would have enjoyed the seating in the garden if it had been warm enough! Plenty of parking for the car. The sat nav didn't work for this property and we spent 10 mins looking for it.

    Dear Kay, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review of your recent stay with us. The cottage certainly does heat up quickly, ideal after a chilly walk! We do struggle a bit with both TV and sometimes mobile reception, due to being out in the countryside and apparently in a dip and on the edge of a couple of transmitters and masts. We installed a 4G antenna on the chimney so the WiFi can support the smart TV’s so you can watch all the usual channels on the apps (iPlayer, ITV Hub etc) We hope to see you again when you next visit the area. Best wishes, Ian & Lorna Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay with our 2 dogs."

    Good distance to lovely long beaches and views over the fields. Yes the cottage is near to the road however the road has more quiet than noisy times and once inside it wasn’t noticeable as noise. The owners left us some delicious plum loaf and Prosecco which was much appreciated and the neighbours were super friendly. Good outside space for the dogs and really cosy cottage.

    Dear Hollie, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review of your stay with us at Rose Cottage. Glad you got to explore the vast beaches and enjoyed the Plum Bread. We would love to welcome you all back when you next visit the area. All the best, Ian & Lorna :-) Property Owner

  • "Would not have booked this property if I had known it was 15 feet from a main road"

    Hi David, Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at Rose Cottage. We were sad to hear that you wouldn’t have booked it if you knew it was on the road to the coast. However, we were thrilled with the review you left in the guestbook saying how warm and cosy it was in bad weather and what a lovely time you had sitting in the garden when the sun was shining. As a helpful guide for future guests, I’m happy to confirm that after a quick check, the end of the house actually sits just shy of 40ft from the road. Best wishes, Ian & Lorna Property Owner

  • "Thank you Ian and Lorna for a lovely stay in your cottage."

    The welcome pack was great and the cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. The weather didn’t allow us to enjoy the garden but Pixie our little terrier loved it. We’d recommend supervising any small dogs just in case they find an escape route when you’re back is turned as the cottage sits next to quite a busy road. Lots of places to eat just a short drive away, we really enjoyed the Woolpack which had great food and a cozy fire. A drive to the beach at Sandilands is a must for a long walk and a ice cream.

    Hi Janet, Thank you so much for the lovely feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The Woolpack is fantastic and one of our locals! Louth has lots of great places to eat and relax and the beaches are wonderful so we are thrilled you were able to visit one of them. Best wishes, Ian and Lorna Property Owner

    The pictures and description don’t do this cottage justice, it’s so picturesque and so much attention to detail within the cottage itself. Not only we’re we left a welcome package - which was delicious - our dog was also left goodies and treats too. We immediately felt at home. The cottage was very close to a public footpath with several route options, perfect for exploring with dogs. A short drive to Louth with plenty of shops and restaurants, it was also a great location to explore the Wolds and coast from. Would recommend and can’t wait to come back!

We are delighted that you had such a great time, getting such lovely feedback really makes it worthwhile for us.

    Clean and comfortable and thoughtfully presented we loved our stay. We appreciated the bathroom facilities upstairs and down. That was a real help. On the only day it was pelting down all over the country we made it out to nearby Louth which has just about everything, a lovely bustling town where we tasted wonderful fish'n chips then back for a Netflix film in the comfort of a snuggly sitting room. There were lovely old houses in the towns, an interesting mix of architectural interest and little squares with really nice tea rooms. Everyone had time for a smile and helpful comments. We found the wolds a panoramic visit back in time with older houses dotted around. This was a lovely restorative break and many thanks to Rose Cottage.

    Dear Angela, thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a lovely and comprehensive review of your stay with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and found the place to be cosy and comfortable, exactly what we were aiming for! As for Louth, we might be biased, but it really is a very warm and friendly town with so many nice places to eat. We love it. Thanks again, Ian & Lorna :-) Property Owner
