  • "We had a lovely stay at The Cottage."

    The owner had gone above and beyond to provide everything you could need and the welcome pack was just so thoughtful and yummy! Everything had been thought of and the cottage was very cosy and homely. We would certainly recommend to others.

  • "We had such a lovely stay at The Cottage, prettiest cottage we've ever stayed in."

    We loved the attention to detail and all the homely touches. The welcoming bottle of prosecco, chocolates and bakery goods were a lovely surprise and there was even a pint of milk in the fridge. The village was peaceful and quiet but only a few minutes drive from Lincoln. We would definitely stay here again, thanks for everything.

  • "Lovely snug cottage on the outskirts of Lincoln."

    Kitchen is well supplied, several nice touches scattered around the home with walking guides, cotton wool and even spare toothbrushes! We were also really touched by the welcome gifts of Prosecco, pastries and snacks (and the milk in the fridge)! We were able to walk into Lincoln, as there is a pathway all the way down (around 5 miles) and then caught the number 3 bus back. Didn’t use my car all weekend and it was lovely ☺️.

    Located in a quiet village with a local pub/restaurant and other amenities just a stones throw or very short drive away in neighbouring villages, as well as being within a 15 minute drive of Lincoln. The cottage is quirky yet comfortable, quaint yet homely and the host provided a wonderful and thoughtful welcome pack including prosecco, muffins, chocolates, croissants, crisps, a first night of logs and kindling as well as a pint of milk in the fridge! The prosecco and chocolates were wonderful companions with the candle-lit bath in the lovely claw-foot roll-top bath. I will definitely be returning to this cottage if isn't already fully booked!

    Very Clean, comfortable, and cosy. Furnishings and fabrics are all top quality, everything you need in the kitchen, with a welcome pack on arrival of lots of goodies, much appreciated with milk and juice in fridge. Amazing bath tub. Comfortable bed and pillows. Was lovely to sit outside on the comfy cushions having a cup of tea and a gin and tonic, amongst the Lavender and roses, we didn’t get to meet Tracey, the owner this time, but would like to say thank you very much, you have a lovely cottage and we would love to come back, and would recommend staying here. 5 stars + The cottage is in a quiet friendly village, with a post office and bus stop just around the corner, the number 3 takes you straight into Lincoln in 20 minutes for £2 and runs Mon-Sat with a reliable timetable. We had a lovely day in Lincoln lots to see and do, the castle and cathedral are well worth a visit, lots of shops and quaint cobbled streets and a very big hill ! The village of Woodhall Spa is lovely with a museum and tea garden and a book shop with lots of history and a war memorial, and some pretty shops. We were lucky to see the Lancaster Bomber fly over. All in all a lovely 4 day trip for our Wedding Anniversary and the weather was great, can’t ask for much more than that Thanks again Tracey

    The ease of booking was first rate, as was the description of the cottage. "The Cottage" in Reepham is fantastic. Firstly it was immaculate inside and the owner really has set the bar so high. They thought of everything and supplied some excellent extra touches. The welcome pack is very informative and very useful. There is a parking space at the back of the property which is accessed down Althea Terrace ( take the first left ) a lovely garden complete with furniture to use in the warmer weather. There are even two dressing gowns and slippers for guests use. The roll top bath is divine. There are lots of books, dvd's and board games to enjoy on days when the weather is cold or wet. The bed is very comfortable and we were sad when our week came to a close. I highly recommend this cottage and we found the neighbours were so nice and helpful.There is a little shop and post office about a minute walk away and the Fox and Hounds takes another half a minute to walk. This is the very best cottage we have ever had the pleasure to stay in.

  • "The cottage provides 1st class accomodation in the quiet village of Reepham."

    It is beautifully decorated, we'll maintained, spotlessly clean and has car parking directly in front of the garden gate. The cottage is located just opposite 'the green' and is in a particularly quiet spot, so no road noise at night. The cottage was well equipped with everything needed for the perfect stay, we can't praise the accomodation enough, needless to say we had a very enjoyable, relaxing stay. Lincoln city centre is only a 10 minute drive away, so the cottage is in an ideal location for visiting this historic city. We can't recommend this accomodation enough which is a credit to the owner and can't wait to return. Thank you Tracey

    I think I hit my head about five times in the week. Thankfully the weather was wonderful. Your information on how to register for COVID is onerous and involves some timewasting. You ask us to put all the party details on your website which I did. You then ask us also to send these details to the property owner if we do not have or use the NHS track and trace app. We do not use it. The owner was suprised to hear this, first time she said, maybe everybody has the NHS app. Why ask us to complete all the party details and then you do not email them on the owner? Her email was also listed incorrectly in the welcome folder. Probably corrected now, I hope so. You emailed me a lot before the trip, mainly with advertising. So overall experience of booking and payment site was about 5 out of 10. The only thing you did really efficiently was take my money! Mike

Within easy reach of exploring both Lincoln, surrounding areas, and the nearby coast. We hope we can visit again. Thank you so much!

  • "A delightful cottage, very tastefully decorated and felt welcoming."

    The well maintained garden was a bonus, especially as it turned out to be a sun trap. We spent some considerable time relaxing there. A great deal of thought had been put into the details and the details count. The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge warm and comfortable. The bathroom, with both roll-top bath and walk in shower, came with a range of towels and extras that one might have forgotten to bring. The bedroom was also very well decorated and the bed very comfortable. The owners had left us a number of treats and goodies which was a welcome surprise. We would recommend this cottage to any couple looking for a relaxing break.

    Location was great - local walks gave you views of Lincoln Cathedral which were lovely. The owner had really thought carefully about everything a visitor may want and the welcome package that was left was really generous too. I very much would recommend staying here - I may even do a return visit at some time in the future. Thank you to Tracey for such a superb effort.
