    Such a comfortable we'll equipped cottage in a very nice village. Perfect for exploring the region. Extra touches in the cottage very welcome with plenty of charging plugs and very comfortable beds. Good parking outside and nice garden. The extra treats left were a welcome surprise. Definitely recommend

  • "A gem of a cottage tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac near the centre of a large village with lots of amenities (shops and pubs) close by."

    Perfectly situated for travelling into Lincoln with a train station about 5 minutes walk away. The property itself is clean, airy and comfortable with a good patio area suitable for al fresco dining. Beds are very comfortable and bathroom and kitchen facilities excellent. We much appreciated a welcoming bottle of wine, flowers, plum loaf and cheese - a nice touch. Our stay coincided with a notable drop in temperature and we did struggle a bit to cope with the heating controls for which clearer instructions and/or a simpler method of operation would have been welcome. The gas boiler also emitted a slight whining noise when running. Other than that, The Stable was everything we wanted for our weekend away and we unhesitatingly recommend it to other travellers.

  • "I initially booked one week and stayed for two weeks."

    The property was lovely and clean and upon arrival there was a gift of Prosecco, Plum loaf and Lincolnshire Poacher (its nice to see local produce in the welcome pack). The furniture is comfortable well thought out with all the necessary amenities. Although I didn't use the garden it looked nice and tidy and of a reasonable size. The property is well located with nearby train and bus access to Lincoln. The Hosts were friendly and welcoming. The *only* negative is that my car was completely covered in tree sap from parking in the allocated space.

  • "The property was modern and clean (I did have to wipe out the fridge on arrival) I’m not sure why it is advertised as ‘dementia friendly’ as no obvious signs of anything being different!"

    There were lots of ants and hatching flies on the patio when we arrived. We poured water and washing up liquid on them which seemed to deter them a bit! There was no ‘welcome pack’ of any kind! While I assume this is not obligatory, it was upsetting to read in the comments book on the table that others had received plum loaf, Prosecco and fresh flowers!

    Chip shop and Chinese take away walking distance from property and both were delicious. Lovely and clean accommodation and a bonus for us was seeing red arrows coming over the area while they are training. Nice secure garden for the dog and side gate for drying her off without having to come into house all wet!

  • "Lovely comfy cozy clean property."

    Only very minor issues were no grill pan for cooker, basic number of utensils ie Only 3 wine glasses, 4 of everything else, inferior basic utensils, cold entrance hall. These are only very minor issues and wouldn't stop us from rebooking again. We had a lovely stay in the stable and the Lincolnshire area. O e of the best we've stayed in. You won't be disappointed.

  • "What a great find!"

    ! We have stayed in many holiday cottages and the Stables is up there with the best! Tastefully furnished, lovely and warm, well equipped, good parking, very clean. Definitely want to go back, the garden looked great but was far too cold to go out. Saxilby is a lovely village and everyone was so friendly. Loved its proximity to so many places. Train station is few minutes from the cottage. It took 11 minutes on train into Lincoln £5.80 return for 2 people. Doddington Hall was 8 minutes. Pye Wipe pub was highly recommended, with good reason (food was delicious) 10 minutes. Great few days, definitely recommend

    It is nicely located within a larger village with all the facilities you would require. Public transport is good with bus stops and railway station within a 5min walk. All in all a lovely property and village to base you holiday in.

  • "A well presented and appointed property in a quiet location."

    Very handy for dog walking to the recreation ground. Lovely dog friendly pub at The Sun Inn and had a couple of meals there which were very good. The only negative, and just a minor one, the rear garden/lawn in need of some attention. Other local amenities on the door step and a good base for exoring further a field. Pity the weather went downhill so we left a day early but otherwise had a good stay and would recommend it to others.

  • "Thank you for taking our last minute booking."

    We loved The Stable and it felt really comfortable and well equipped. The village was lovely and the people in both pubs and the few shops were friendly and helpful. The train station was a bonus enabling us to nip into Lincoln within 15 minutes and it was great to come back to the home comforts of The Stable with comfy beds, great shower and easy to use TV and WiFi. A fabulous find and a perfect short break for two adults and two teenagers. Would definitely recommend The Stable if staying in the area again!

    The village is very nice and people are friendly, well worth having a walk around. Shops are handy and the pubs seemed busy, we didn't use them. Fish and chips from the local shop were very nice. A good base to travel to local areas i.e. Doddington Hall was only 8 mins away. Would visit again

  • "Fantastic little cottage in the heart of Saxilby."

    Excellent location with local shops, eateries and pub in easy walking distance. The train station is a 3 min walk from the door and you can get a train to Lincoln in 12 minutes. Very reasonable cost at £9.70 return for our family of 5. The cottage itself was beautiful. Exceptionally clean and tidy. A good array of books, games and 2 smart tvs kept the kids entertained. Nice outside area which we didn't get chance to use as only here for a short stay. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything you would need to cook a nice meal. It was extremely hot when arrived on Friday and the owners very thoughtfully came and dropped off some fans to help keep cool. These were very welcome as it was over 30 degrees. I would highly recommend the cottage and would very much like to revisit the area for longer in the future and would not hesitate in returning here.

  • "Our stay in the stable was wonderful."

    The cottage had everything to make use off although we ate out most of the time,our choice. It felt like home from the moment we entered the front door. The area was so peaceful and local people are so friendly. Although we didn't get to meet the owners in person all contact numbers were left for us in case we needed them. Also they had left us a lovely note,saying they are new to this. Well what can we say other than congratulation to you both you have done a fantastic job thank you. Wendy and Dudley.

  • "It would be helpful to highlight the fact that half the garden isn’t safe for young children or puppies as the shed and the rubbish next to it are in our view a safety hazard."

    We suggest this is screened off until it’s removed/ improved. It takes away from the rest of the garden and house as is not only an eye sore but potentially dangerous. The shed itself looks dreadful and as this is your first ‘ view’ as you approach the property it puts you off. The approach to the house and the parking bay was messy overgrown and agsin not welcoming. The outside space was v disappointing. The house was pleasant inside .

  • "The stables is a lovely property and well placed in a beautiful village ."

    A few improvements would make it perfect, the gate is not safe with dogs and could do with a internal lock , it was windy when we arrived and it kept blowing open , a simple adjustment ( we moved the BQ in-front of it for our stay . Also a dishwasher is a must no one wants to wash up on holiday . The garden was messy at the back of the shed attention to holes under fence ( with small dogs ) a ladder had been placed in front !! A old paddling pool and football net was just left with roofing felt ( I know there was some mention of doing the shed up - but I think this stuff should have been moved , didn’t let my dogs out alone in the garden with rubbish and gate issues, but this is easily solved in otherwise a beautiful cottage .

    Well equipped kitchen, nice fenced patio and a small lawn at the back for the dog. Bedrooms comfortable. Saxilby is a nice village. Walks along the Fossdyke canal, convenience store at one end of the street and a recreation field at the other. Pubs, fish and chip, pizza place all an easy walk away. We had a lovely day out in Lincoln and also went to Gainsborough. Weekend well spent!
