Heron Lodge is fantastic. There were five of us, aged from 18 to 84, every one of us loved it and will definitely be returning in the future. The grounds are beautiful and the owners make sure that everything is fine for you, without interfering, it is peaceful and quiet and you are guaranteed a good night's sleep. There are lots of places to visit that are not far away by car, or you could stock up and spend your time without going anywhere! Reviewed by MichaelJul 2022 "The beautiful, spacious Heron Lodge is the great place to relax and enjoy the well deserved peaceful country break." As a family, we had a great time here and also exploring nearby surroundings. The hosts are very friendly. Love to come again for sure. Reviewed by BijalJul 2022 "Lovely property in a beautiful location." I genuinely thought it was a new listing with it being so well presented. Reviewed by AmandaMay 2022 "What a find !" Heron Lodge is absolutely fabulous. Extremely clean, spacious,comfortable, well appointed and with great attention to detail. All needs catered for. Nothing has be overlooked. Very quiet location, stunning views, beautiful grounds to explore with lots of wildlife to watch. Heron Lodge is ideal for couples and families with children over 12 years old (the property has 3 lakes) Our hosts were adorable, with lots of knowledge and suggestions of what to do in the area, nothing was too much trouble. Local village 2.5 miles away has good local shops, a supermarket and a variety of takeaways. We can recommend the 'chippy' ! 40 minutes to the seaside, 30 minutes or so to Lincoln and lots more to do on your doorstep. We enjoyed our stay sooooo much, infact, we have already rebooked for next year. Thank you Denise and Andy. Reviewed by BarbaraMay 2022 "Superb in every way." Reviewed by BrianMay 2022 "Perfect location with wonderful facilities and its own lake!" Reviewed by IanApr 2022 "This place is a hidden gem." Everything has been thought about to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is plenty of wildlife to watch near the Lodge and there are 3 lakes to walk around. The owners who live a bit further up the site are very welcoming but considerate of your privacy. We enjoyed it that much we will be booking to stay again. Reviewed by CliveApr 2022 "This cottage- and its hosts- are what I would describe as THE ultimate in the art of cottage provision!" Literally nothing has been missed or is short. Superlatives hardly cover the description of both the cottage, its facilities, the location and indeed the most amazing hosts. I have rented many many great cottages before but I have to say that all round this one beats the list to the top. Thanks you again Andy and Denise for a most wonderful time! We will return for sure Reviewed by GeoffMar 2022 "Beautiful bungalow which is credit to the lovely owners Denise and Andy who live in in a nearby bungalow on the grounds." They are very approachable and have thought of everything to make your break away home from home. The single beds are divans and are extremely comfortable. The double is more springy but it is fine. Lovely furnishings. Very clean throughout. Plenty of fluffy towels/hot water. Plum loaf that was left for us was lovely (can be bought from nearby garden centre). Also tea/coffee/milk to make a cuppa on arrival was welcomed. Situated nearby (a couple of miles I think) to local facilities (shops/supermarket) but still remains very peaceful. I don't want to gush too much about Heron Lodge as I don't want it to get fully booked! If anyone moans about staying here, then nothing would please them! Excellent communication from Sykes. Reviewed by AnthonyMar 2022 "The fact that we have been back to Heron Lodge several times speaks for itself!" Superb accommodation in a lovely setting. Owners very welcoming. Reviewed by DavidOct 2021 "My husband and I spent a week at Heron Lodge at the beginning of October 2021." The property was perfect for us in every way. Beautifully situated away from the road, along a long gravel drive, very quiet and private, with lovely views over the grounds. Every effort to ensure our comfort had been considered with great attention to detail. Despite being spacious and open- plan it was very warm and cosy. It was extremely well-equipped and very clean, with all necessary Covid sanitation precautions taken. We used the Lodge mainly as a base for walking in the area to gain access to the start of our daily countryside and coastal walks without having to drive too far. Denise and Andy, the owners who lived on site further up the drive, were lovely - very helpful yet considerate of our privacy. We very much appreciated their welcome pack containing tea, coffee, milk and plum bread loaf. The fact that we plan to return in the future says it all. In a word ... superb! Reviewed by COct 2021 "Comfortable and very well equipped property." Set in beautiful grounds which we enjoyed exploring. Owners very welcoming and keen to ensure we had a lovely holiday. Hoping to return again soon. Reviewed by JenniferSep 2021 "Very comfortable property in lovely surroundings." Peaceful and relaxing but a great base for exploring the Wolds and coast. The hosts, Denise and Andy are delightful and caring. Would definitely consider staying here again if visiting the area. Reviewed by DavidSep 2021 "Fantastic holiday Heron Lodge was perfect everything you might need was there and more." The owners Denise and Andrew were great and work hard at making you welcome and keeping the property perfect.We would definitely give Heron Lodge 5 stars and hope to return again. Reviewed by AnnSep 2021 "Wow!! What a stunning property in beautiful surroundings" . We stayed August 13th for one week with our 2 daughters. The owners Denise and Andrew have literally thought of everything and are so helpful. The property is spotlessly clean, which in these current times is more important than ever. This is by far the best accommodation we have stayed in and Denise and Andrew are really great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. You can tell they take great pride in their property and that they want you to have a wonderful holiday. It is such a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Why Sykes have only given it 4 stars is a mystery. If this property and its hosts are not 5 stars, we don’t know what is. We will definitely be returning in the future. Mr and Mrs Gray. August 2021 Reviewed by AndrewAug 2021 "Wow what a fantastic place to stay !" A real gem ! We have just had an amazing week staying in Herons Lodge. The lodge is fantastic the best we have stayed in ! The owners Denise and Andrews attention to detail is perfect , the lodge and grounds are a credit to them. The lodge is immaculately clean and everything you need is there, they have thought of everything to make sure their guests have a perfect holiday. The grounds and the wildlife is lovely to see and walk around. The beach is a 20 minute drive away and the best beach we found was Mogs Eye it was perfect, quiet and clean with families enjoying themselves. Thank you to such a lovely couple for making our holiday perfect we will definitely be returning. Our only recommendation would be that Sykes give this lodge 5 star not 4 !! Reviewed by SuzanneJul 2021 "We loved our stay at Heron Lodge and have booked to return for longer!" Reviewed by PamelaJul 2021 "Our second stay at Herons Lodge and once again we could not fault any aspect of the Lodge." Without any doubt it is the best accommodation we have rented and we are looking forward to returning again as soon as possible. Superb peaceful location for exploring Lincolnshire coastal resorts and inland villages, or just sitting outside the lodge and watching the wildlife which visit the grounds. The lodge is equipped with everything you could need and everything is top quality. The tea, coffee, milk and plum loaf are a nice welcoming touch so you can have a drink and snack after a long drive. Andy and Denise are perfect hosts, they are very welcoming and would be very approachable if there was any problem. They do a great job in making sure that the lodge is spotlessly clean on your arrival especially in these Covid times Reviewed by AllanJun 2021 "Friendly helpful owners and fabulous location with well equipped first class accommodation." Reviewed by GMay 2021 "We cannot say enough about our week away at heron lodge ..." We cannot say enough about our week away at heron lodge The accommodation was even better than described from absolutely everything you need being there and more with excellent cleanliness The setting was absolutely stunning beautiful walks in the grounds and plenty of wildlife The sun sides in the morning were amazing made even more special with a herd of deer Reviewed by KarenApr 2021 "Heron Lodge is a wonderful, comfortable and peaceful place to stay with lovely surroundings." It is very well equipped and we couldn't fault it in any way. Denise and Andrew are so friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. The weather was awful but it didn't spoil our stay. We will definitely be returning Reviewed by WendyOct 2020 "This was one of nicest, most well equipped cottages we have stopped in over 30 years we could not fault it." It was set in a beautiful location with many attractions in the area. The owners made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would thoroughly recommend Heron Lodge for a comfortable, peaceful holiday and we look forward to going back in due course. Reviewed by MichaelOct 2020 "Great location, loved the walk around the lakes, ideal peace and quiet." The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the accomodation was probably the best equipped that we have ever stayed in. Access to the coast was very easy and there were several eating venues close at hand. Reviewed by GraemeSep 2020 "Without doubt Heron Lodge is the best cottage we have ever stayed in." It is so spacious and so well equipped. Denise and Andy have thought of everything and they are on hand and very approachable if there was to be a problem. The grounds and the lake are well kept and full of wildlife. The cottage was spotlessly clean and Covid safe. Despite looking we could not find any faults with the cottage and it exceeds the description on the website. It is an ideal peaceful location and perfectly positioned to have days out on the Linconshire coast or the market towns. Denise and Andy should be proud of what they have achieved with this cottage. We will certainly be booking again. Reviewed by AllanSep 2020 "Heron Lodge is in a secluded spot where only the occupants and the owners have access to the lakes and the woodland." There is a wide, gently sloping grassed area at the front of the lodge where my teenage boys loved playing foorball and cricket. We had access to fish in the closest lake which pleased my 15 year old son. In the house, there is a good selection of outdoor games equipment in the boot room,, and a good selection of board games, books, and DVDs. The lodge is immaculate, in both cleanliness and decor. It is light and spacious, and the kitchen is very well equipped. The owners have provided plenty of good information about the area and although the property feels secluded, it is in close proximity to the small market town of Spilsby. Milk, sugar, teabags and coffee, plus a Plum Loaf, were thoughtfully provided on our arrival. The owners Andy and Denise were very approachable and friendly. I don't have any critical comments to make at all - other than keep your eyes peeled for the entrance, which is off quite a busy, speedy B-Road - there are a few properties with a similar address and the entrance to the gravel drive is upon you very quickly. Perhaps maybe a metal heron at the top of the drive? Reviewed by BeverleyAug 2020 "The owner phoned me two days before to arrange for check in which was nice and once we arrived made sure we were ok the property was very clean and had everything that we required very well equipped and set in beautiful grounds with wildlife in abundance plenty of Rudd to be caught in the fishing pond all in all a great experience and a lovely break away." Reviewed by MichaelAug 2020 "An absolutely beautiful bungalow with everything you could p;ossibly want for a holiday." The lakes and woodland paths are a joy to walk around with no noise except for the wildlife. PERFECT! Reviewed by DavidAug 2020 "Stunning cottage and location" Reviewed by LesleyAug 2020 "We had a fantastic stay." Your cottage was one of the best I've ever stayed in. Clean, big, nicely decorated, and packed full of everything you might need on a break. Couldn't recommend it enough Reviewed by BenAug 2020 "A fabulous cottage which had everything we needed for our stay." The owners were really helpful and obviously cared about their property and its residents which is evident from the attention to detail and cleanliness. A beautiful semi rural location ideal for a peaceful break. The grounds have lots of different wildlife and the lakes have plenty of fish to see. The fishing lake near the cottage was well stocked with small fish and those that fished were in their element. We didn't find the WiFi connection a problem and was as expected being in a more remote area. We had a great time with good friends and can't wait to return next year. Reviewed by MechelleJul 2020 "Fantastic property, very very clean." Spacious. Comfortable beds. Good loaction to explore from. Plenty of grounds to walk around. Owners on hand if required. Maybe could do with a better TV with Netflix, iPlayer etc but you don't go on holiday to watch TV. Reviewed by SteveMar 2020 "This is a nicely converted, spacious, cosy cottage, situated within the owner's area of natural woodland with four lakes and a wide variety of wildlife." As well as the immediate surroundings, the cottage is also well situated for visiting the many nature reserves around the north side of the Wash and the wide variety of aircraft museums and heritage centres on the Lincolnshire Wolds. Our only problem was the speed and reliability of the internet connection, partly due to the lack of a fast broadband infrastructure in this part of East Lincolnshire, but also the use of an unreliable powerline connection between the cottage and the owner's bungalow. We solved the problem by setting up our mobile phone as a hotspot and placing it high up on one of the windows facing towards the nearest mast. Reviewed by StephenJan 2020 "The best accommodation we have visited." The owners were very helpful. There is everything and more that you require for a brilliant holiday. Peaceful surroundings - every comfort - watching wildlife from your lounge window, and perfect peace at night. Will certainly be returning to this wonderful property. Reviewed by DavidSep 2019 "The cottage and surroundings were perfect." I couldn’t ask for a more perfect setting. The cottage was well equipped with everything one would need and more. The owners were friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this property Reviewed by DeborahAug 2019 "Heron Lodge is probably the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in." Everything was clean and tidy and the facilities provided were certainly above expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return for another. The owners, Denise and Andrew, were always willing to help and went the extra mile by posting back to me a sticker book bought for a grandchild, which we managed to leave behind at the top of a wardrobe. Reviewed by BrianJul 2019 "The grounds of this beautiful lodge are immaculate and interesting with all the wildlife around you plus the lakes." A most relaxing holiday in a modern - fully equipped with absolutely all you could desire - holiday home. Wanted for nothing whilst we were there and loved every moment. The fair cost of the week meant it was money well spent !! Sylvia and Peter Wakeman (Wellingborough) Reviewed by PeterMay 2019 "Heron Lodge is superb." The lodge is modern, comfortable and beautifully presented - a real credit to the owners. Its about a 10 minute drive from Spilsby and sits in open countryside. The lodge itself is about 150m away from the road down a gravel driveway. The open plan layout works well and the lodge felt very spacious although the single bedroom lacks much hanging space and could maybe benefit from some blackout curtains unless you appreciate early starts. The lodge is very well equipped and the owners have clearly put a lot of thought into what guests might need, especially the little 'extra' things such as a picnic basket and binoculars to borrow, spare batteries for the TV remote, notepaper, magnifying glass, plenty of information about the area and its attractions as well as a good selection of books, magazines, DVDs and games for any wet days. It just creates a feeling that everything you might need for a self-catering break is there, including all the things you have forgotten. There was also tea, coffee, milk and cake to greet us with, much appreciated. The real attraction are the 20+ acres of grounds the Lodge sits in and in which guests are able to wander along the mown paths maintained by the owner. The grounds are a little steep in places (but no problem for an 84 year old) and consist of woodland, meadow and four small lakes. A stroll through these grounds observing the wildlife (deer, rabbit, partridge, pheasant, owls and of course Heron amongst others) is a great way to end a Spring day. All in all, can't recommend Heron Lodge highly enough and hope to return one day. Many thanks to the owners for helping to provide a very memorable break Reviewed by AdrianMay 2019 "This cottage is situated in the most pleasant surroundings - extensive grounds with lakes and woods and lawns, away from the main road (which is only a B road at that)." Very beautiful and peaceful setting. The cottage itself was extremely clean and well-equipped with good quality fixtures, fittings, soft furnishings, crockery etc. - right down to the quality of towels provided. The owners are a very friendly couple who live nearby and they have thoughtfully provided everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable holiday. We all came home with our batteries fully charged! Reviewed by FionaApr 2019 "Fantastic place." Quiet, well equipped and owners are a lovely couple who live further down the driveway. Lots of wildlife (watch out for the pheasants who have never heard of the highway code!), rabbits and even a deer. Good fish & chip shop in Spilsby 4 miles away. Reviewed by AndrewApr 2019 "The cottage was in beautiful surroundings." Lots of thoughtful extras set this holiday apart from others and having friendly owners nearby was reassuring.Heron Lodge was clean, modern, warm and very comfortable and I recommend it to all Sykes customers. Reviewed by LindaMar 2019 "It was our 51st wedding anniversary and we could not have chosen better accommodation." We have hired properties through Sykes before and have never been disappointed but Heron lodge was the pinnacle. Andy and Denise were perfect hosts. Andy was checking drains at the lodge on a freezing Sunday evening, a real star. It's a pity we cannot hire the lodge in high season, a little beyond our means. Cannot recommend this property enough. Give Andy and Denise your full support please. John and Susan Glenn. Sleaford. Reviewed by JohnFeb 2019 "Excellent location and facilities." The cottage was absolutely lovely. Owners were friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended. Reviewed by JasonJan 2019 "We've had a lovely time in this beautifully furnished lodge." Everything was immaculate, fresh, cosy and clutter free. Very well equipped with everyday essentials. Denise and Andy were such welcoming hosts, who weren't intrusive at all . They left us with a hamper and milk which we thought was very thoughtful, considering it was a last minute booking. Their cottage is next to Heron lodge, but it is positioned in such a way that only the rooftop can be seen from the lodge. We've had a very relaxing time and enjoyed strolling around the lakes, which were very beautiful. A must see are the many beaches- especially during sunrise. We shall definitely be returning in the near future- but for a week as 3 days was just not enough! Reviewed by MunafOct 2018 "Heron Lodge has everything required, just like home from home."

As you amble down a very long drive from the road you are instantly forced into a state of relaxation as it is tranquil and inviting. The grounds are just spectacular and go on for acres after acres combined with i think at least 4 lakes. The house - bungalow itself is very well appointed and finished to a high standard. It has all the required facilities and some, you will not need to pack the hair drier either. The hosts are very welcoming and extremely nice - inviting. I didn't want to give a review as we would like to keep this treasure to ourselves for future visits. The nearest town with all the amenities and shops is all but a very short drive. Lots of lovely eateries in the area too. Njoy... Reviewed by Julius Michael JohnAug 2018 "Heron lodge is a beautiful new property which is extremely well equipped." It is in a perfect setting especially for nature lovers as there are extensive walks around lakes with plenty of wildlife. Andy and Denise were the perfect hosts, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. A welcome pack for making tea and coffee on arrival plus a delicious Lincolnshire plum loaf was just what we needed after a long journey. All the finishing touches made the property very homely and welcoming. This is the best self catering property we’ve stayed in and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Lincolnshire.
