  • "This is a beautiful house and the friendly owners have gone the extra mile to make sure you feel especially welcome."

    We only had time for a very short stay and wished we could have stayed longer. It's the perfect spot to unwind and relax in comfort.

  • "This property is attached to the owners property it is their garage extension."

    It is not private. You can see the owners going about their daily lives. For the amount of money we spent it was disappointing. We ran out of wood after two days in winter and didn’t feel comfortable asking for more. We left early as I was Ill and no longer feeling comfortable in the space. The property is clean, it’s open plan and they leave a hamper of homemade food and drink. Lots of rules about cleaning and keeping the property clean which just felt like pressure when on holiday. The baby gate at doesn’t fit into the space at the top of the stairs so if you have a child do not let them lean on it they will fall. The wood is beautiful and literally a 2 second walk from the gate.

    Hello Laura, we’re very sorry that you weren’t feeling very well during your stay with us. As we said when we welcomed your partner at the start of your stay, you just needed to send us a message if you needed anything and we would have gladly come over to provide more wood for the log burner or install the baby gate correctly. The master bedroom does overlook our back door, but the window is curtained and there is still a Velux window to let in light. The property benefits from it’s own private, fenced large garden and patio which is not overlooked in anyway. With regards to rules on cleaning, we just ask that dogs are dried off after they have been showered in the dog wash, and allow dogs to sleep on beds if a dog sheet is used. Dog towels and sheet are all provided, as it helps to keep the property in good condition for all of our guests. We are glad you enjoyed the woodland and welcome pack, we do try very hard to make sure guests have all they need. Property Owner

  • "Had a fantastic stay at the Old Wood Coach House and cannot recommend highly enough."

    The location of the property is fantastic and our dog had the the best time exploring the neighbouring woods. For cyclists, there are a network of cycle paths close by and we had a lovely ride to Doddington Hall which is a must visit. The property itself had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. A real gem of a property.

  • "An truly idyllic place to stay."

    This was our second stay at The Old Wood Coach House and I can only say we appreciated it even more the second time around. It has everything you need, and all that you never knew you needed! The owners have produced a lovely holiday home in a peaceful, tranquil environment. Perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Surrounded by nature, and accessible only by small tree lined roads, it's a little like travelling into a fairytale. The love, energy and effort that has gone into creating such a beautiful and natural retreat can be seen in an abundance of small details. The gently cultivated garden encourages local wildlife and one can lose hours watching the birds, squirrels, frogs and others roam free. Our little dog was a tad confused when one day he stepped outside into what can only be described as a "cloud of butterflies!" The house is also not short of "mod cons", to name just a few - rainfall showers in both bathrooms (one also has a bath tub), a "smart" hob and oven, a speaker for your playlist if you so choose , many little touches that make sure your stay is as easy, comfortable and pleasant as possible. There is no wifi, very little "cell signal" or "data coverage", but it can be found in certain areas of the house and garden if wanted or needed. It was a refreshing change not to be held hostage by pinging phones or computers, but also handy to know we could access it if need be. The owners, although only next door, are not intrusive, and ensure their guests are given privacy. However, in the event of any issues, they are friendly; quick, efficent in dealing with them. Local amenities are near by and easily accessible. Essentially, one has the best of all worlds at The Old Wood Coach House.

  • "Tranquil holiday home on the border of Old Woods provided everything we needed for a self catering break with our dog and newborn baby."

    Dog wash facilities were much needed as it rained a lot during our stay so local paths were quite muddy - useful for the pram too. Dog bowls, towels and complimentary treats were a nice touch, as was the optional travel cot, baby bath and baby gate. Enclosed garden was a must and managed to keep our bouncy beagador secure. As the property is adjacent to a public footpath our dog barked a lot at passers by but the owners (who live in the next door property) were understanding. Didn't manage to use the bbq/fire pit, or balcony that often, because of the rain which was a shame. We didn't venture out too far, just to Doddington Hall which was about an hour walk there and Hartsholme Park which was a 10 min drive.

  • "Superb property in a very private location."

    We loved the details provided by the host (freshly baked cake on arrival, jam and marmalade, fridge full of essentials etc). They didn't have to do this and it wasn't expected but such a lovely touch. Lincoln is only 15 mins away by car and the local village has a lovely pub and a few takeaways if you're feeling lazy. There are plenty of woodland walks on your doorstep so this is great if you're taking kids, pets or if you just fancy a romantic walk with your other half. My only negative about the property was the lack of WiFi as I received little or no signal while in the building. WiFi isn't stated on the amenities but I assumed it would have it regardless as most cottages usually do these days. Bottom line, great destination and a very welcoming host. I have recommended to a few people already and we may come back in the Summer. Thanks for being such a lovely host. Ryan.

    Thank you for the great feedback Ryan. On the WIFI, we are waiting for BT to connect us to fibre optics, but unfortunately they aren’t able to give us any timescales on that. Hopefully it won’t be much longer. Regards Katharine Property Owner

Fantastic woodland walks straight from the doorstep and when you get back straight into the doggy shower room for a warm wash down , just simply amazing. The cottage itself is so warm and cozy . We didn't light the log burner as it was warm enough without it but it certainly looked great . The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. There was a welcome basket waiting for us which was fab with a home baked chocolate loaf too ! .

    A perfect place for a peaceful retreat from the outside world, but close enough to local places to visit. Decorated to a very high standard and is very well equipped, including a doggie shower on the lower level. The accommodation offers two great showers and the dishwasher was an added bonus. The main living area is upstairs and overlooks the local wood which is next door to the property and offers a great place for walking . The view from the lounge and outside verandah gives the feeling of staying and living in a tree house . Katharine and David were perfect hosts and live next door to the property and were very attentive in filling up the logs for the log burner and the nuts and seeds for the bird feeders which attracted many different bird life and funny antics by the squirrels. Their welcome pack was very thoughtful and very much appreciated ,including homemade.jams,lemon drizzle.cake and vase of daffodils .1 If you want a place away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life and a delightful home from home to relax and recharge your batteries ,this is the place to come .No WiFi helps in the unwinding and relaxation process.
