  • "Quiet rural cottage ideal for touring the Lincs coast and Wolds."

    The property was very clean the beds comfortable, shower good and had all the kitchen equipment needed to make this a home from home. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. Pet friendly which is a bonus.

  • "A lovely cottage with great views and everything we could ask for."

    We have stayed in Owl Cottage previously and that was so good we returned to Pheasant Cottage. The cottage is well placed for lots of attractions, either on the coast or inland, yet is in a lovely quiet area. We stayed during a heatwave with overnight temperatures in the mud to high teens, so found the 10.5 tog duvet a little warm, and we would have liked a lighter summer weight duvet or a sheet to sleep under. That was our only issue.

    thank you for your feedback we aim to try and please all guests Nice to have returning guests I will remember to change duvet to lighter weight one Property Owner

    It’s warm, comfortable and so peaceful. The views are wonderful, the sky is so big here! There are lots of country walks from the doorstep. Louth, Horncastle and Alford just a short drive away. Mablethorpe, Sutton on Sea and Skegness an even shorter drive away. Barbara the owner is lovely and made us feel very welcome. Perfect. We will definitely be back!

  • "We had a great holiday."

    The bedroom was bright, airy and was lovely and comfortable, as was the lounge area. Having a little enclosed garden was also great. Barbara the property owner is very friendly and if you need any information she's available. However, there were a couple of basic things that let this cottage down and maybe we're being picky, but the kitchen utensils are a bit tired and in the bathroom, the shower is really terrible! It wouldn't take much to make this cottage fantastic as it's in the perfect location for exploring the coast etc.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions however the plumber has done his best to improve shower we are closing Pheasant cottage January 2023 for 4 months for major renovations We try to help to make guests holiday enjoyable with local suggestions Property Owner

    It was in a lovely situation and very quiet. Our host Barbara was on hand to meet us when we arrived. There was an issue with the television reception (probably cable connection), but this was resolved straightaway by providing a second television which worked perfectly. There was nothing we needed and the good weather helped make this a fantastic holiday location.

    Supberly clean and very comfortable and spacious. Situated next to the road but it is not a busy road so it is not a problem. The garden at the front is well secured so perfectly safe to let the dog outside without supervision. Plenty of footpaths nearby. Not far to town, but would need a car to get to shops, pub, etc.

    Lots of information available for local activities/walks. The cottage was cosy and warm and in a quiet location. The bed was extremely comfortable. As other reviews have said the cottage is looking a bit tired and needs some TLC. If you like an invigorating shower to wake you up in the morning you will be disappointed as the flow is very poor. The owners were very welcoming and quick to respond to a problem which we had during our stay.

The property

Overlooking a peaceful country lane in the delightful village of Rigsby in Lincolnshire is Pheasant Cottage.

This charming, dog-friendly, semi-detached cottage offers the perfect getaway for small families, friends or couples thanks to its welcoming interior, off-road parking, well-manicured garden and unbeatable location on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Utilise the off-road parking for two cars before crossing the threshold into your new home-from-home where you can find a quaint sitting room with TV.

Unwind on the sofa before venturing into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner adorned with wooden units where you can make a start on dinner.

Gather the family around the dining table to tuck into your culinary creation; after dinner step outside to the front garden where you can enjoy the last light over Rigsby with a glass of wine in hand on the small patio.

When stars appear overhead travel upstairs to wash off the day’s adventures in the bathroom fitted with a corner bath and overhead shower before sloping off to sleep in either the double or single bedroom with an additional pull-out bed.

Keen ramblers will be in their element as there is an abundance of walking routes available from the front door; lose yourself in the picturesque beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds, the home of endless, rolling countryside.

Alternatively, head into the nearby town of Alford where you can stock up on all of your self-catering needs at local convenience stores or treat your loved ones to an evening out at pubs such as The George Inn.

The town is also home to the Alford Manor House which boasts a breath-taking garden and a wealth of history inside.

Continue the historic excursion at the National Trust’s Gunby Estate, an impressive 18th-century manor house offering a glimpse into the past.

On sunny days travel further afield to Mablethrope or Chapel St Leonards to enjoy a day of fun on the beach.
