    Lovely relaxing week at the Dairy - Di made us feel very welcome, and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay - property is of a very high standard - clean, cosy and well maintained, and is well situated for many great days out - even the coast is only an hour and a half away - there is a Nature Park at nearby Whisby with free parking before 10am and after 5pm is ideal for dog walking - there are also some good local pubs offering really great food - highly recommended

  • "Compact and cosy cottage for a couple."

    High standard of fittings and very clean. Useful enclosed gravel area to the front for those people who bring a dog and dog walking facilities around an adjacent paddock. Only downside is a lack of washing machine, but there’s not really the space to include one. Just bring enough clothing for the week! Ideal location for walks, trips into Lincoln and Newark, and free Red Arrows training displays! We’ll be back next year after a very pleasant stay this time. Highly recommended.

    Our host, Di, was very welcoming and on hand if we needed anything. Although rurally situated with glorious views over horse paddocks, the Dairy is well located to visit the historic cities of Lincoln and Newark as well as the Lincolnshire coast and the Lincolnshire Wolds. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to others and hope to be in a position to return again in the not too distant future.

  • "The dairy was an idyllic retreat for us - everything was perfect - and there were little extras which made if stand out from some places we've stayed at."

    The only downside was the wifi. It doesn't work very and the area has little or no G4 - it was a little difficult for me particularly as I was unable to do some of the things I needed to online, like book tickets for attractions (plus some work I needed to do). I would certainly recommend this for a quiet space to stay. The area has a lot to offer.

    Everything you need for a very comfortable stay, warm, cosy and the owners have clearly worked hard to ensure the accommodation meets expectations with the furnishings of a high standard. Plenty of things to do in the area and nothing too far way from the cottage.

Would love to return.

Kitchen, dinner, living area is a nice size ( just right for 2 adult + dog or toddler).Entry is by a double French door into this area with uncluttered floor space in the entry way. This was very handy for the dog crate, shoes etc. Everything you need in the kitchen dinner for food storage and prep, with space to move around. Please note -cutlery is stored in a pull out section under the hob. Living area incorporates a 2 seater settee, rocking chair, TV and a nice wood burning stove. There are also electric wall heater in each room so we did not require the stove. Bathroom is spacious with walk in shower which has both over head and standard shower.Good pressure and temperature. Heated mirror which is useful. Nice large comfortable bed sat in a spacious room with wardrobe storage. Outside space is a walled and gated area ideal for small dogs comprising of a stone flagged seating area which runs the full length of the cottage and a semi circular stone chipped area with flower beds. Two nice pubs serving real ales within a mile - 2 miles both of which serve good "pub grub" at reasonable prices. Other pubs and a Chinese restaurant in the local vicinity. Ideally placed for both Lincoln and Newark.
