  • "Great place to stay"

    Reviewed by RobertJun 2022

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Chippers Cottage."

    The cottage was very clean and well prepared with a very generous welcome pack. The small village is really quiet with ideal country walks from the door that suited our two small dogs. Woodhall Spa is on the doorstep with lots of amenities for our holiday. We particularly enjoyed the Kinema in the Woods. The owners have done a great job of making it an enjoyable holiday.

  • "We had a lovely few days, thank you."

    There had clearly been a lot of thought and attention to detail put into the cottage. We were very comfortable, and the cottage was clean and well equipped. The welcome basket was well thought out and generous. The gardens were beautiful, although the weather wasn’t quite warm enough to eat outside during our visit - I can imagine in the summer months it would be delightful to do so. The dog had a great time too and was very impressed with his own biscuits!

  • "Beautiful place to stay."

    Quiet, clean, fully equipped kitchen with a nice welcome basket and even included some bathroom toiletries. We took 2 dogs and the court yard was fully secure for them to be in on their own. The hedges in the bigger garden need some wire mesh putting at the bottom as my escape artist beagle found some holes to sneak through. Really close to drive to Woodhall Spa which has some beautiful shops, cafes and nice pubs. Very nice trip to the Teahouse in the woods (a few times

  • "Really lovely cottage, outdoor enclosed gardens and gated patio area were ideal for our large dogs."

    Great facilities at cottage especially in the kitchen and the seperate utility was ideal. Nice and clean all through. Lovely quite area with nice walking opportunities and close to many little towns, Woodhall-Spa just a few minutes drive away with couple of small supermarkets and lovely shops and restaurants. Pubs and restaurants around fill up quickly so best to book ahead. One negative is the kitchen tap drips continually, losing a bowl plus a day, not great environmentally and a bit annoying!

  • "A fabulous cottage, very comfortable and well equipped."

    The owners were extremely helpful. A good secure garden for the dogs, plenty of room for 4 adults and comfortable beds. This cottage is in a beautiful area, with really helpful neighbour's that all came out to help when one of our dogs escaped (our fault, the gate was open). Would definitely stay again.

  • "We have just returned home from a fabulous week!"

    This holiday was a trip down memory lane for me and it certainly gave me back some fabulous memories! Our stay at Chippers was great! Very well equipped property it had everything we needed! I have a few negatives to add but the positives are so good it wouldn’t stop me staying again! My only complaints are : the cleaning could of been a little more spot on! I noticed a fair few cobwebs around the house, like you do in every house but maybe I’m just picky, the air fresheners in the property were either full but didn’t work or empty. This meant after being out all day we came back and it smelt very stuffy and shut up…not fresh.. The towels provided were very generous but they were towel that didn’t dry well…you know like new towels???!!! Also the toilet roll holder felt a good reach away from the toilet! Ok for me but impossible for my little one. One bedside lamp didn’t work, and the lamp in the living room wouldn’t turn on, and we had a drippy tap in the kitchen sink. These are just my observations. I know it’s a holiday home and you put up with some things as it’s only temporary accommodation and these may seem like silly comments but just little things that caught my eye! Can’t fault anything else! The garden was well kept, a lovely hamper with bread, crisps, biscuits (Thankyou) a bottle of lemonade, very much appreciated! Beds were lovely and clean. Area was lovely and quiet (we did have a big yellow eye sore skip outside for most of the week but that can’t be helped as it was for a property across the road). As I said my negative comments are not really major faults just a few little things I feel could be changed to make the property so much better and it wouldn’t stop me staying again !

  • "We did enjoy our stay at Chippers Cottage."

    Lovely welcome pack, and for a 2 bedroom house there was plenty of space for us and our 2 dogs. There was plenty of cupboards in the kitchen but they were nearly all full with utensils so there was not much cupboard space for our food and the dogs food. We had some lovely walks in the surrounding area and it would have been a lot better if it hadn't kept raining. A very peaceful and relaxing little village. I would recommend.

    Everything was perfect for us and our two big dogs. The owners were great and made us very welcome. Everyone in the village was very friendly and we felt very much at home. We would highly recommend staying at this cottage and you will not be disappointed.

  • "Lovely tranquil spot."

    We were there to see family that we hadn't seen for 30 years. Loved nearby Woodhall Spa and preferred the peace of Chippers to a busier Woodhall so would definitely stay again and recommend. Heating system much appreciated but unusually for us you could hear the water travelling through it most of the time, which we found a bit distracting. Maybe needs attention? Welcome pack the best we have had anywhere and very much enjoyed and appreciated, particularly when arriving late with no idea of where anything is. Many thanks.

  • "Fabulous cottage in a rural quiet village, no street lights."

    We loved our stay at Chippers and going home came around far too soon. The owners have put a great deal of thought in to supplying everything you need for a very happy and comfortable stay. The welcome pack far exceeded our expectations and was greatly appreciated. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of storage space for all your clothes, with both wardrobes and sets of drawers in each room. The lounge was great with two lovely sofas and plenty of dvds to keep you occupied on an evening. The outside was great for the dog, enclosed safe garden, laid to lawn and two patios with chairs and table. Laundry room (although we didn't use) looked great with washer/dryer and ironing facilities. Outside toilet also a bonus for when you are sitting outside. All in all we would go back tomorrow and were sorry to leave. Thanks for everything.

    Lovely, comfortable and characterful cottage and secure dog friendly garden (although our dog didnt really enjoy the long walk over deep gravel to the grassy bit at the end!) and it would have been nice to have a couple of chairs to sit on down there (beside the swing seat) but cant really grumble overall. Perfect for a long weekend break!

    Warm and cosy with comfortable beds and tasteful decor. The welcome flowers/fruit/groceries were a lovely touch. The cottage has all the facilities you could need and the garden area is safe for dogs to wander. ( although we have 2 Mini Dachshunds who would have got under the gate if we weren't watching!) Local walking is great. Plenty of places to eat within a 20 minute car journey. What would have been useful was a list of places to shop/eat/drink/visit? We used our phones but not everyone does. We would certainly book this cottage again and recommend it to anyone wanting to explore lincolnshire.

    We found it well equipped, pleasantly furnished, comfortable and clean. The 'welcome pack' was the best we've experienced. With a small closed gated 'courtyard' plus a secure garden and neighbouring field it was ideal for our Labrador. Our only query with the booking was that we could find no reference to limits around arrival and departure times, so we arrived and departed at our own convenience and saw no one, so that seemed to be ok. Thank you.
