    We adored Giggling Goose! The property met - and exceeded - all our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean, spacious yet cosy, with beautiful decor. Both the house and village were peaceful and quiet with lots to keep us occupied. Bianca provided prompt communication on the lead up to and during our stay. The lemon drizzle cake on arrival was a lovely added touch and much appreciated. Thank you for hosting us!

    En-suite shower is a bit of a squeeze. Lovely welcome gifts of cakes and eggs were there for our arrival which were a lovely touch. Found a lovely local wood to walk and local caravan parks for dog walks and play parks. Visited Wolds Zoo and Tattersall farm park both were lovely and extremely well priced. Skegness and Lincoln are around a half hour drive too. Local restaurant Zucci us a must we also ate out at Abbey lodge and Village Limits which were lovely too.

  • "Had a wonderful week at Giggling Goose and would highly recommend."

    The location is excellent for exploring the area and easy to get to many locations on the coast and Lincoln. Also for National Trust members there are 3 good places to visit, Gunby, Belton house and Tattershall castle. The RAF visitors centre is well worth an afternoon. Woodhall Spa itself is a beautiful village with many eateries and pubs, the Kinema in the woods is a great little cinema. Having an electric car the charging point was brilliant with no worries having to locate EV chargers and waiting around. Loved the games room and enjoyed playing pool. The bungalow was very well kitted out and our stay extremely comfortable.

  • "Really lovely property."

    Very clean and comfortable.Kitchen really well stocked. Our only problem was the en suite shower.It is extremely small.There was no shelf to put anything on so shower gel/shampoo had to be put on the floor.This was a big problem as all our party are over 65 and are not as flexible as we once were and could not bend down safely in the enclosed space.Although there was another (very good) shower over the bath in the main bathroom, two of our party can’t climb into a bath.They therefore had a week without a shower.An addition of a hanging shelf in the en-suite would make a big difference.

    Thankyou for your kind feedback we are pleased you had a wonderful stay You will be pleased to know we added 2 shelf’s to the en-suite shower after your comment. Property Owner

    I’m sure it was originally king size but Sykes have not updated their information, and not Bianca’s fault, my family members have a super king bed so they found it very small. But everything else in the bungalow was superb and would definitely recommend, there is also Prime & Netflix which also Sykes does not state, so abig bonus.Thank you Bianca we had a great time.

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    Loved the walk into Woodhall Spa for shops and restaurants, of which there are many. Would recommend the Kinema in the Woods, if you want a quirky cinema experience with some of the latest blockbusters. The outdoor heated swimming pool at Jubilee Park is also a good option, just check the times, as it may get busy at the weekend, when the schools are out, or during swimming lessons. The cafe by the pool also does excellent milk shakes and has a good cake selection for a good price. We would definitely come again, although my only quibble was that the pillows were feather , which set off my allergies.

    Hello we are glad you had a lovely stay, if we are aware of allergies we would always try our best to cater for you. Property Owner

Plenty of other local places to visit too, including RAF Coningsby, Horncastle, Louth, Lincoln and enjoyed a private swim at the Pool by the Bain. Also many thanks for the cakes, they were delicious.

  • "It’s our second time at the property and it’s a lovely place."

    However, this time, the property wasn’t as clean as the time before. We opened the fridge and had to clean it as the previous guest had left it dirty and a pool of water had collected at the bottom of the fridge which was from fish - quite putrid! The crockery had stale food stuff on it and the cutlery drawer had crumbs in. These are the things I expect to be cleaned as standard and a priority when I stay at a holiday place. One of the dog toys had rolled under the sofa and and I scooped it out with a sweeping brush and brought out lots of debris where it hadn’t been cleaned so I swept under the entire sofa and lots of mess and dust was underneath. A little disappointing in that respect but the property itself I would highly recommend.

    There was a very nice welcome pack left by the owners which included some super cakes. There was also a treat for our dog, which he thoroughly enjoyed, thank you. There was also a dog bed and throw available in the lounge area. It was nice to have an enclosed garden area to the rear of the property, and also a gated drive and parking area to the front. As other guests have commented, there could be more drawer or dressing table provision, but this was not an issue for us. I thank the owners for their attention to detail and would happily recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit this area.
