About the property

A romantic and peaceful getaway for just two to share

Winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. Our beautiful riverside cottage is just north of the hamlet of Langrick, eight miles from the old market town of Boston. It nestles in carefully tended gardens right next to the peaceful River Witham as it takes its journey from the magnificent city of Lincoln down to Boston. Lovingly prepared for just two guests to share, Witham Cottage is the self-contained annex to a classic Georgian farmhouse occupied by the owners of the cottage.

For supplies, the nearest large supermarket is Tesco in Boston. Grocery deliveries can be arranged with ASDA, Sainsbury's or Tesco.

You're assured the warmest of welcomes from Kathy and Alan who are on hand to give you advice on the local area. The interior of the self-catering cottage reflects the country style of living and is beautifully equipped for your stay. Pastel décor, solid oak furniture and wooden floors immediately create a quality atmosphere. The fitted kitchen is complete with a dishwasher and all the pots and pans, cutlery and crockery needed to create anything from a quick breakfast to a delicious dinner after a day exploring our beautiful county.

The sitting room has comfortable armchairs to sink into, an electric log burner for a wonderful evening glow and a large flat-screen television. Complimentary unlimited WiFi is provided.

The beautifully appointed double bedroom has dual aspect windows overlooking the gardens and is complete with solid furniture, quality bedding and a chandelier. Off the bedroom is the sparkling new shower room, the perfect place to start and end each day.

Surrounding Witham Cottage is two acres of gardens which guests are welcome to make their own. Enjoy a walk, explore the plant specimens and sit peacefully with a good book. Up on the riverbank it's so quiet with perhaps the occasional cabin cruiser bobbing along now and then. The riverbank is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee first thing in the morning or perhaps a glass of wine in the evening, watching the glorious sunsets.

About Kathy Lee

Kathy & Alan Lee bought Copping Syke Farmhouse more than 20 years ago and spent many years renovating the property and developing its gardens which were originally no more than a field. The site has a beautiful riverside location which is now surrounded by trees and is a truly peaceful part of the World.

Kathy Lee purchased this cottage in 1991

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had the best week ever at Witham cottage and nearly cried when I had to leave. I enjoyed the beauty, the peace and quiet this place can offer. The standard of the cottage and the surrounding garden is exceptionally high thanks to the hard work of Kathy and Alan. They are just as lovely people themselves as the place they created and sharing with us tired people who just want to get away form it all. I didn't have a car as only temporary here in the UK from Hungary so they even offered me lift back to the station which I am very grateful for.

If you need to recharge those batteries then this is definitely the place to go to!

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend catching up with friends and to stay in such a lovely cottage was the icing on the cake. The cottage had everything we needed was beautifully decorated and in a fantastic position by the river. We would certainly stay there again.

Great short break

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage with everything you could need. Owners very helpful and Ernie the dog a constant delight! The location was very quiet with lovely riverside garden to watch the sun going down with a glass or two of something medicinal. The swans taking flight right in front of us was just a bonus. Good base for first time exploration of Lincolnshire.

Fantastic cottage in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Witham cottage was perfect for a special getaway where the only sounds you could hear where from the birds, predominantly owls in the evening. The location, down a farm track and next to the river was delightful, as were the owners. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have vowed to return but for a little longer.

Beautiful tranquil cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage maintained and cleaned to an exceptional standard. An absolutely tranquil, peaceful location alongside the River Witham in an exquisite garden setting.

The owners can not do enough for you, but only if required, you are given ultimate privacy.

A fantastic place to relax for days on end or as a base for all Lincolnshire has to offer.

"There's no place like home"

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I recently stayed at this beautiful property. Alan, Kathy Lee and their entire family, were so very welcoming and absolutely wonderful to visit. We were on a mission to do some ancestry research, based from this area, and we were very successful in experiencing exactly what we set out to do. We also live in a rural farm community, so that's why I quote "There's no place like home". We researched some of the roots of my mom's family and stayed in a beautiful rural farm community, feeling the comforts of home. Our only regret is the fact that we had to leave this place, as staying for a whole day to relax and take this entire beautiful place in would have been ideal. Thanks so very much to this entire wonderful family and hope others can have this delightful experience as well.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review of Witham Cottage following your visit to the UK. It was especially nice to welcome you both on your mother's first trip outside Canada and we are delighted you enjoyed our countryside location and found the ancestry trip interesting. It was a pleasure having you both to stop a short while here and hopefully you'll visit the UK again for more research.
