  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Millcott and found the location perfect for visiting friends in Lincoln and Sleaford."

    It would be perfect for anyone attending a graduation at RAF Cranwell too. A very comfortable cottage with cosy tasteful home furnishings; deceptively spacious. The owner was on hand when we had a query, dealt with it very quickly and to our satisfaction. New to the self-catering business we wish Millcott all the best for the future.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments and fabulous review, you were my first guests and Millcott and I really appreciate the feedback you gave me it was extremely helpful. Property Owner

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

Millcott is the annex of Millhouse Farm, boasting 5 acres and equestrian facilities including stabling for those guests wishing to bring their own horses, providing a delightful base for family and friends.

Step into an entrance hall where you can pop off your walking attire before discovering the kitchen, fitted with a wealth of mods and cons to assist in cooking, including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washer/dryer, so you won’t have to bring your whole wardrobe!

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.
