  • "The cottage and stay was perfect."

    The negativity for us was the way we were accused of burning the attic bedroom carpet. A room we never went into or used. It was obvious which rooms we used.

    So quiet and peaceful. Cottage was very equipped with everything you needed. Nice extras like welcome back which included milk, butter, jam, crisps etc. Also provided toiletries. Good communication with the owner as well.

  • "Lovely cottage, well presented, warm and cosy (we were there in October)."

    Well located for visiting Lincoln & the coast. Ideal for two adults, with or without children, but it would be a bit cramped for four adults, especially upstairs and with only one bathroom/loo. Note to owners - we were very conscious of the parking, being on the lawn in wet weather. It would be more comfortable to park if there were a couple of tracks laid in the grass similar to the path.

    Full of character, clean and well equipped, we couldn’t have asked for more. Situated in a very remote and quiet location was perfect for us. Wragby is just 3 miles away with a couple of pubs, Co-op and a chippy. Great base to explore the Wolds and beyond and only 25 mins from Lincoln.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay at Woodbine Cottage, so much so we stayed an extra week."

    The cottage is extremely clean and well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay in the Lincolnshire Wolds. The welcome pack of goodies on arrival was very thoughtful and made us feel at home straightaway. Positioned in a beautiful quiet hamlet. We enjoyed cycling on the long flat country roads, a great way to explore this beautiful area of Lincolnshire and a few trips to the coast by car. Local amenities are approx 3 miles away in Wragby or Market Rasan for larger supermarket. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend.

  • "This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely rural location."

    The hosts live next door and were friendly and helpful. There was a thoughtful welcome pack which we appreciated. This is an ideal place for a relaxed break. Mind your head on the low beams though! Please note that you are 2 miles from the main road and 3 miles from the nearest town (Wragby). There are no shops or pubs in the village.

    Bonus to get a welcome pack including local bread, cheese, milk etc..(the cheese was delicious and we would recommend a visit to Cote Hill Farm to pick up some more from their vending machines, we did and are enjoying it still now we're home in Scotland!) Location was perfect, very central for exploring Lincolnshire and beyond. Off street parking and secure back garden meant our pup was safe too. Highly recommended, wouldn't hesitate to rebook when we're next in the area....

    Thankyou both got your kind comments and it’s good to hear you enjoyed your stay in our beautiful village of West Torrington. Property Owner

    Lovely welcome pack to get you started and loads more extras such as tea bags, dishwasher tabs etc. You only need to turn up with your suitcases as everything has been catered for. We hired the cottage just before Christmas to meet up with our family who live in the area and we hosted an early Christmas lunch with them at the cottage. Plenty of room for six and a dog. Heather and Daniel the owners were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely book the cottage again. Also the garden is dog friendly and secure.

    !) The cottage had everything you could want and the kitchen was a joy to cook in, so great to have good quality pots & pans to use. Lovely dog friendly enclosed rear garden just a shame we couldn't use it. We couldn't get over how quiet it was either, just birdsong to wake up to in the morning. Despite the weather we would return to Lincolnshire, we found plenty to do Gunby Estate well worth a visit, dog friendly, the Windmill at Heckington very interesting and we loved Willingham woods, great walking even in the rain !! Special thanks to the owners for the wonderful welcome pack & for fixing the TV during our stay.

    The garden room at the rear catches the sun and overlooks the enclosed and dog safe garden. The cottage is well equipped. The owners are very helpful and considerate and their welcome pack includes basic essentials and more. In delightfully peaceful rural surroundings the cottage is roughly midway between Lincoln and the lovely old market town of Louth with everyday essentials available a couple of miles away in Wragby. The pub there does good food and is dog friendly.

    Fantastic! (ii) If you put Woodbine Cottage into a google maps search you get a place close by which is on Station Road South Willington. Your details are clear that this cottage is in West Torringto, although this doesn't come up on google maps, so it might be worth just mentioning specifically that this is not the cottage listed in google maps in South Willington...for people like me who haven't downloaded the instructions prior to leaving!

The property

Woodbine Cottage is a charming and cosy retreat in the sleepy hamlet of West Torrington, three miles from the small town of Wragby in Lincolnshire.

The cottage would have an amazing tale to tell if it could speak as it dates back to the 16th century when the world was a completely different place to the one we know today.

Constructed of local materials known as mud and stud and supported by beautiful beams taken from ships' timbers, the cottage has been beautifully restored weaving the delightful, traditional build with modern conveniences of the 21st century.

This welcoming holiday home is over three floors and has three bedrooms, two on the first floor and one an attic room on the second floor.

There’s a bathroom on the first floor, and on the ground are an open plan living area with a warming woodburning stove and a sun room that doubles as a utility.

Walks and cycling are available in the immediate area and fishing lakes are nearby.

The small town of Wragby is close by and has pubs, a fish and chip shop, a café and a restaurant, as well as a regular bus service.

Within reach is Lincoln, with it’s two unmissable attractions – the magnificent Gothic cathedral and the castle with its Medieval wall walk, and shopping is particularly good here, especially in Upper Lincoln and at the historic Bailgate.

Lincolnshire has it all - city, coast and countryside, with this delightful cottage an ideal base to visit the county.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
