  • "Lovely spacious property and helpful owner."

    The cottage is very well laid out and comfortable. Excellent facilities. We felt at home immediately, as did our dogs, who loved the garden too. It is very well placed to explore Lincoln and the surrounding area. We would definitely visit again.

    Alison was very welcoming and helpful if needed, but also left us in peace to enjoy our stay. Lovely welcome pack, and all the facilities we needed, everything to a high standard. It was great to be able to walk straight into the hot tub from the conservatory, and we made sure we made the most of it! Highly recommended. Thanks Glenn & Steph

    The cottage is lovely and spacious and ideal for 2 couples with the large ensuite bathrooms. The lounge is a great size with the rise and fall chair an excellent extra if someone has problems getting up and down out of a chair. The dining room in the conservatory has a lovely big table and chairs. The kitchen is well equipped with the dishwasher and washing machine and cooking facilities. It's a lovely area to stay, the local pub served excellent food and helpful staff and were extremely dog friendly. Alison the owner of the cottage was available and very helpful if we needed anything.

    All basic requirements were available and the hot tub was the added bonus! Set in the countryside and central to visiting many attractions and gorgeous walks. Bus timetable to Lincoln was good with the bus stop only 10 mins walk from cottage. Good food available in local pubs and can highly recommend Maharaaj in Metheringham, which we had delivered.

    Lovely location with secure access and great allocated parking. A very rare find, this property is completely accessible, all on one level, super comfortable beds, spacious en-suites to both bedrooms, and all bedding really good quality. Every room equipped to a really good standard, garden completely secure for the dog too. Alison, completely on hand if anything needed and a delight to deal with. Incredible value for money, we will definitely return.

  • "Loved Millcott but as oldies found the information provided to be confusing."

    Never used a keycase before and had to ask for assistance, so we got off to a bad start. The Wifi would not connect for any of our party, the hot tub registererd 43 degrees and was unusable. The shower worked on the first full day, but could only get cold water after that, was it another instruction we did not follow?. The owner was around but always very busy and not particularly friendly. We all felt a bit intimidated by her and did not report any problems, so the problem became ours. I am not attaching blame to Alison. It was our first holiday in over 10 years so disappointed in myself for not being brave enough to contact her. We had a lovely break in a beautiful area, and apart from these niggles, we were happy.

    Hi Melvyn, very sorry to hear you had issues during your stay a Millcott, but glad you had a lovely break nonetheless. Disheartening to read your review as I put my heart and soul into making sure all guests have an enjoyable stay. I always ask that people come to me with any issues they might have no matter how small - so that they can be addresssed promptly. I love chatting with guests when I get chance offering them suggestions for places to visit and walks to explore. I can only apologise you didn't feel comfortable enough to raise any queries you had so the these could have been resolved for you. We have a second hot tub on the property that you were more that welcome to use had I known there was an issue. if you would like to stay with us again please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks Alison Property Owner

    Superb bungalow that is fully equipped and in excellent order. Alison the is the perfect owner, available if required but never intrusive . Lovely garden which overlooks the stables and paddocks , provides a relaxing base which is perfect for exploring the delights of this beautiful county. We would highly recommend spending some of your mornings at the nearby RAF bases at Waddington and Coningsby. Where you can watch close up the Red Arrows and Typhoon jets do their thing. The Royal Oak in the village provides excellent food and a relaxing place for an evening pint. We already are planning our return 5 stars from us

  • "Hugely disappointing on many levels."

    Cannot understand how this property has a 4 tick rating. The £50 refund we received seemed inadequate for the many issues we had to raise.

    I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at Millcott, I am extremely proud of my 4.7 star rating which isn't rated by myself, but generated from the positive reviews from guests. I now understand there were a few issues at the property during your stay, if only you had highlighted these, then I would have addressed them immediately, sadly you contacted Sykes after your departure. I always welcome any feedback, both negative and positive to ensure my guests have the most enjoyable stay here at Millcott. Property Owner

    Everything well presented and spotless! Alison was a perfect host who despite a broken foot was always cheery and welcoming.

The welcome pack was full of local delicious goodies that were great fully received! The new installed upgraded hot tub sadly was awaiting the electrician but Alison offered us the use of hers.

Metheringham 2.5 miles.

This delightful, ground-floor cottage rests amidst wonderful Lincolnshire countryside within the village of Scopwick, close to Metheringham.

Move into the spacious sitting room where you can get comfortable on the sofa as the gas fire gently warms you, flicking through the Smart TV in search of a good movie.

The conservatory area doubles as a dining room where family meals and board games can be enjoyed, or take the evening outside to the patio garden, where you can relax upon the outdoor furniture with a glass of wine in hand.

As the night rolls in, retreat to the bedrooms, hosting a king-size with en-suite shower and a double with en-suite bath, both neatly furnished and presented with good storage space.

Less than a mile away lies a lovely pub, The Royal Oak, set along the banks of the river and serving traditional pub classics, while a further selection of eateries can be enjoyed in Metheringham, along with a convenience store if you would prefer to cook yourself.

The surrounding area is bursting with natural beauty, offering plenty of scenic walking and cycling trails, particularly along the River Witham, or take the family of a game of putty at Pottergate Golf Club or even visit Fiskerton Fen and enjoying a lakeside picnic.

If you fancy a change of scenery, take the short trip to the city of Lincoln, where you can uncover of wealth of culture and heritage, home to the imposing Lincoln Cathedral, Tudor town houses and a set of ancient city gates, plus plenty of shopping and culinary delights to keep you satisfied.
