  • "Starfield is a very comfortable bungalow and a lot more spacious than you might imagine."

    The house is warm and homely and the garden is neat, tidy and very secure for a dog to enjoy. Communication with the owner is excellent and they have a wealth of knowledge about the area for things to see and do. Lincoln is a very attractive smaller city and it is well worth the climb up Steep Hill to see the Cathedral. Thank you for such a comfortable stay.

  • "Lovely property."

    It had everything we needed for a week's very comfortable stay. Weather was warm, particularly at the start of our break, so we made good use of the bi-fold doors and the garden. Plenty of space for us (couple). Everything was clean and decorated to a high standard. Hosts were welcoming and responsive when we needed help with something. A great base for our holiday in Lincolnshire.

    Very comfortable, very well equipped and a very thoughtful welcome package from Dawn. An enclosed rear garden is ideal to sit in any time of the day. If, like me, you have a connection to the RAF then this property is ideal for visiting the numerous former and still active RAF Stations. There are also quite a few National Trust properties within an easy drive. We highly recommend Starfield, a real home from home, and we are already planning our next visit. Dawn is a very nice lady who cares about her property and the visitors it gets. All in all a delightful stay. Thank you Dawn.

    The house is fine. We found everything as described and as shown in the pictures. Everything was clean, tidy and there was even a welcome surprise. We traveled a lot and therefore never met the landlords in person. In the meantime, however, they emailed us to ask if everything was ok, if we needed anything and wished us a safe journey back. We are really very satisfied and can recommend Starfield unreservedly.

    It is almost perfect. The "icing on the cake" would be some curtains/blinds in the lounge and kitchen. Not that they are needed for privacy but as protection from the intense glare of the afternoon sun. These rooms face south and west and, even for us in late September, this could be quite intrusive (yes - we did have some lovely weather!). It would also be nice to be able to cover the windows after dark. We greatly appreciated the welcome "goodies" and Pete responded immediately to a problem that we had. Skellingthorpe is a very convenient base for visiting Lincoln and the surrounding areas. Many places of interest were open in spite of the Covid restrictions, most needing pre-booking, and we always managed to find a cafe/pub to get a snack or a meal. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday!

  • "The holiday cottage is probably one of the best we have stayed in in 25 years."

    It was clean, comfortable and very homely. Lots of nice little touches like bread, milk, chocolate cake etc and all the condiments that you have at home along with useful cleaning materials. A lovely kitchen, dining and garden room with a fantastic wood burner. We had a great holiday and only 3 miles from Lincoln which was a lovely city.

  • "Starfield was a lovely property and the owners were very nice, friendly and helpful and there if you needed anything."

    Our dog Tim loved the totally secure garden and the treats that were left for him. We appreciated the welcome pack that was left too. There was nothing that wasn't there for you to enjoy your stay. Lovely place, lovely stay and would stay there again.

  • "We have stayed in other Sykes cottages and not been disappointed but Starfield was exceptional."

    It was a pleasure to be able to enjoy a number of meals before we had to switch on the dishwasher as there was plenty of crockery and cutlery. There was no need to rush to the shop before being able to make a drink and settling into the cosy sofas, when we arrived. The underfloor heating was a treat. We walked into Lincoln one day and took the bus on another. There was an excellent co-op in the village and two friendly pubs, which made the trip very relaxing.

  • "Starfield was well above expectations."

    The little touches made it, including the lovely cake on arrival. The house was clean, comfortable and there was plenty of room for 6 of us. We had sun in the back garden and were able to make use of the patio and garden furniture. Lincoln was within easy reach.

  • "What a fantastic holiday home."

    We had a brilliant week staying at Starfield with our 2 children and my parents. We received a lovely welcome on arrival from Dawn, complete with kitchen essentials of bread and milk, plus added extras of a bottle of wine, dog treats and home made brownie, which was delicious. The property has recently been beautifully renovated and furnished, including comfortable beds and sofas. The living room is amazing especially on sunny days with the bifold doors open onto the secure garden, ideal for children and dogs. It was a real home from home being so well equipped. Starfield is set in a lovely village, close to two pubs, little supermarket and play area. It is also a great base to explore Lincolnshire and beyond. I cannot recommend highly enough.

The property

An exquisite detached cottage nestled in the heart of thriving Skellingthorpe, near the city of Lincoln.

This stunning property presents highly spacious living areas throughout, with luxury furnishings and access to a range of local amenities.

Resting in the centre of the village, it is the ideal place to bring the family looking to discover the Lincolnshire area.

Even the bathroom is a talking point, with delightful modern fixtures in an all-white overtone and complementary wooden floors to coincide with the contemporary living downstairs.

Step into the kitchen/diner where you will feel right at home and free to cook, bake and deliver your very best homemade delights in this well-equipped space.

Sweep across the capacious wooden floors of the sitting room where you have lots of luxurious seating to choose from, a Smart TV to watch all your favourite programmes and a delightful inglenook fireplace to behold while the woodburner crackles away.

This room is part of the fantastic extension, featuring wooden beams and a high apex ceiling.

Swing open the sliding bi-fold doors on a light summer’s evening and enjoy the fresh air, sit out on the patio in the beautiful enclosed garden, and take in the village atmosphere.

The cottage is on the National Cycle Network Sustrans route 64, which is a 3 mile safe and easy off road cycle into Lincoln centre as well as being just a one mile ride to the gorgeous cafe and gardens at Doddington Hall, with cycle hire being available.

There are two pubs to visit in the local village and just 4 miles away is the city of Lincoln, where you can enjoy all manner of attractions such as Lincoln Castle houses, The Museum of Lincolnshire Life and the Usher Gallery.

However, if it is walking trails you're looking for, the village has access to ancient woodland, a variety of wildlife and the local nature reserve in Whisby Nature Park.

There is a celebration of 100 years of RAF this year and Skellingthorpe and Lincoln has very close ties to RAF, the International Bomber Command Memorial Spire which was inaugurated this year and is only 4 miles away.

Starfield is a first-rate cottage in a spectacular position.
