  • "The Barn was a totally relaxing place very clean and with everything you could need provided."

    We loved our time there and wished we could have stayed longer. Our hosts were very friendly and gave us lots of information on places to see and we loved our tour of the garden. Our dog Jonty had the time of his life, outside all day every day and he made friends with a robin that visited in the morning. The locals in the pub were friendly and we went for a couple of hours each night. We visited Lincoln and several villages because hubbies ancestors are from there, Spilsby in particular, we found the church open and loved it, shame the gravestones are so weathered. We would seriously think of going back sometime soon.

  • "Its our third stay at "The Barn" and won't be our last."

    A very comfortable cottage set in the quiet village of Snitterby This is a ideal base to visit so many places such as Gainsborough, Brigg the lovely nature reserve near The Humber Bridge "Waterside" and of course if you just want to relax enjoy the privacy of you own garden space or pop over to the local old fashioned Pub next door. The owners Sarah and Murray are so welcoming and friendly. Many thanks for great welcoming pack and wish them all the best . hope to see you all very soon Elizabeth and Bob

  • "The barn was really well equipped and the owners welcomed us and provided loads of info re days out, amenities and local jubilee celebrations as well as how to work appliances in the barn and keys etc."

    They lived on site but were not intrusive but said any problems to contact them. There was a lovely welcome package in the kitchen. The Barn was lovely and clean and the accommodation suited our needs perfectly. The local pub was really welcoming and it was dog friendly too. There were good local walks for the dog and everyone we met in the village was friendly. Would highly recommend the barn.

  • "The Barn is a pretty cottage perfectly situated for visiting the area, I cannot think of a single thing we needed that wasn't available."

    We took our fairly large dog with us and the garden was big enough for her, she did enjoy looking out through the fence. I would say the fence isn't very high and she could have jumped over it had she wanted to so that would be something to bear in mind if you have an escape artist. Sarah and Murray were very friendly and keen to make sure we had everything we needed but didn't intrude in any way, sorry I missed visiting the garden but will visit again without doubt. We made use of the pub next door a couple of times, very pleasant sitting out in the beer garden with the dog and just wish they did food. We have never visited the area before and found everyone to be very friendly, plenty of dog friendly places to go and we were never stuck because we had a dog with us.

    The cottage was as expected, hence why I chose this one, it is perfectly located to get to different attractions (in my case walks for my dog), it was very comfortable and the owners were perfect host’s, and a generous welcome pack was very much appreciated, would highly recommend and see myself going back to the same cottage at some stage in the future

    The Barn is first class accommodation. Is very comfortable it has all that you need. The welcome pack left was fab, bacon,eggs,butter,bread,orange juice,milk, tea and coffee. It just sets the holiday mood. Would highly recommend it. Some day would like to return.

  • "This was our second time at this wonderful holiday cottage."

    The owners have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. They are on hand for any problems (although we had none to report!) and advice of where in the area to visit. There is a small enclosed garden at this dog friendly holiday home. We hope to return next year.

  • "What a great little cottage!"

    We’ve never stayed at cottage quite so close to a pub, a good pub for that matter. The cottage has all of the facilities we could have wanted and the owners were happy to chat when we saw them passing. Saying that, they were also happy to leave us be but were ready with local guidance should we need it. Please don’t let the proximity of the pub put anyone off this lovely cottage, the pub shuts at 8 every night so there is never any late night noise and the pub serves really good beer (no food so don’t expect to get fed) and the locals were so welcoming whenever we ventured in for an odd beer. In essence, a great little cottage, well equipped and a lovely spot to base yourself should you want to explore wider or just sit and enjoy the tranquility of rural Lincolnshire. We will definitely visit this cottage again in the future.

  • "The Barn, Snitterby, is outstanding in every way."

    My active young dog and I had a very comfortable stay. The property is in an ideal location for walking right from the door. The garden is lovely. The ambience and facilities at The Barn are faultless. The hosts are welcoming and friendly, and the welcome pack was exactly what I needed after a late night arrival. Highly recommended!

  • "This is a beautifully appointed, clean, spacious and very comfortable barn conversion set in a fabulously quiet and peaceful village and is located by the side of a pretty babbling brook."

    (The photographs of the accommodation provided by Sykes Cottages unfortunately do not do it justice at all.) We took our small dog and the pretty little garden attached to the accommodation is very secure so that we had no concerns about allowing him to run around in it. The personal welcome we received from Sarah and Murray was wonderful after our 3 hour drive and the welcome pack they supplied was very generous and catered to our vegetarian requirements - including veggie sausages, tomatoes, butter, bread, muesli, milk, orange juice, tea, coffee and lovely sweet biscuits! If you’re intending to visit historic Lincoln it’s coastal resorts or go rambling in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds this accommodation is ideally situated for you. We urge you to take a break here because this lovely couple obviously care very much about the visitors to their Barn and make your stay as comfortable and welcoming as possible. We will definitely be staying here again.

    The welcome pack supplied by Sarah, Murray and their daughter Victoria was brilliant. The hosts were welcoming and friendly and made us feel at home. We went to this area to visit the very large antiques centre at Hemswell which was a ten minute car journey away so was a perfect holiday cottage for us as we were able to visit several times. There is a really nice pub with a welcoming landlord literally a stones throw from the cottage. All in all lovely place to stay and we would highly recommend The Barn for a perfect holiday.1

  • "Really lovely place."

    Very pleasant surprise with the welcome pack of eggs, butter, milk, bread etc. Much appreciated. Made to feel very welcome by owners. Thank you. Just minor things which would improve the experience were that we found the bed little soft/ springy. A couple of small Pyrex bowls and a broom to sweep inside would be handy. Otherwise wouldn't change anything and would definitely book again!

    The owner says "I have now purchased more mixing bowls and a broom as Mrs Holford suggested. We are often complimented on how well 'The Barn' is equipped but we are happy to add additional items if requested. I am sorry that you found the bed too soft. Property Owner

    Fantastic welcome pack (a lot more then others give!) A big thank you to the owners Mr and Mrs Reid who were perfect hosts. Enjoyed coming back to cottage after a long day out to relax in the Sun room even on a cold April day. Snitterby village is small but the traditional pub the "Royal Oak" is next door just over the ford is very welcoming and friendly. The cottage is a great place as a base to visit Lincoln, RAF Coninsgsby, Gainsborough, Cleethorpes and lots more.
