Overview

About the property

2 bedroom cottage, five minutes' from Lincoln's stunning cathedral and castle

No. 24 Church Lane is a luxurious, bright and airy holiday cottage, nestled in the heart of historic uphill Lincoln. Situated in a delightful row of terraced cottages, No. 24 has been renovated to an exceptional standard, retaining its unique character, whilst integrating the highest standards of home comforts and modern conveniences. No. 24 offers a peaceful welcome for up to 4 holiday makers.

Inside, there is a great feeling of light and cosiness. A comfortable sofa sits beside the original fireplace and newly installed log burner, in the rustic tiled living space. The cottage comes complete with well equipped kitchen, state of the art wet room and two bedrooms.

The cottage includes the following:

sitting room with multi-fuel wood burner (fuel supplied)

dining room

kitchen

wet-room with shower only

2 double bedrooms, one double and one twin

safe walled garden area with seating

integrated fridge, dishwasher, electric oven & hob

washer/dryer machine

iron and ironing board

freeview TV, DVD & iDock

hairdryer

2 wired-in smoke alarms and burglar alarm

Wifi available

Within a 5 minute walk of the cottage, you will find yourself in uphill Lincoln, also known as the Bailgate area or Cathedral Quarter. Set on cobbled streets with a quaint yet historic atmosphere, the area is both unique and vibrant. Steeped in history, there is a plethora of independent retailers, including lovely tea rooms, cafes, bakeries, delis and restaurants, where you can enjoy tapas and Thai curries to traditional fish and chips.

After a stroll down Steep Hill and through the historic Stonebow Arch, you will find yourself surrounded by boats and the buzzing atmosphere of the Brayford Waterfront, where you can relax by the water or take a boat trip down the river Witham.

Lincoln also has a busy cultural quarter, with its Theatre Royal, The Collection, Drill Hall and many more attractions.

The annual highlight of the Cathedral Quarter is the Lincoln Christmas Market, a magical event that brings the whole of Lincoln to life, but especially the Bailgate.

Why Dan and Rosie Quinn chose Lincoln

We have lived in and around Lincoln for more than 40 years and we love it!

On your travels, have you ever come across a small, empty cottage and stopped to take a closer look? For the last 6 years, we have been driving past the quaint row of cottages on Church Lane thinking how lovely they were and how rarely they came on the market...until one day we saw a for sale sign and we just had to take a look. The garden was a sorry empty space and the house had been abandoned after being part renovated, and there was no kitchen or bathroom to speak of, but the cottage was full of charm...all it needed was some vision and a lot of tender loving care.

This is how it all began in 2014 and now No. 24 is ready to be enjoyed by you.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage manages to be both airy and yet small but perfectly formed, which is one of the things we loved about it instantly. We've kept the decor both simple and luxurious, so you can really switch off in a peaceful environment which feels like you are pampering yourself.

Lincoln is a beautiful Cathedral City and the county town of Lincolnshire - one of the UK's largest counties. The city centre is small enough to walk around yet has so much to explore. Within 5 minute walk of the cottage, you will find yourself in uphill Lincoln, also known as the Bailgate area or Cathedral Quarter. Set on cobbled streets with a quaint yet historic atmosphere, the area is both unique and vibrant. Steeped in history, there is a plethora of independent retailers, including lovely tea rooms, cafes, bakeries, delis and restaurants, where you can enjoy tapas and Thai curries to traditional fish and chips.

Beautiful, well equipped & clean house in ideal location, everything you need for perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Clearly well loved & cared for house, Rosie & Dan met us on arrival & showed us around, leaving a lovely welcome pack (far more than token tea & biscuits & also items like dishwasher tablets, handwash, kitchen foil, cling film, shower gel, washing powder, cleaning products, umbrella & a torch also left for guest use) & telling us how things worked & about local attractions. House was beautiful, warm, immaculately clean & well equipped, with castle, cathedral & many great pubs & restaurants within an easy walk of 10 minutes or so. Having a real fire was great, something we very much miss in our newish home, & just added to the coziness of the place. The beds & bedding were very comfortable & the blinds kept the rooms dark very well. Although there is no designated parking, a nearby space was always easy to find, especially if you are returning from a day out after 4 (but if you are just staying in Lincoln, there really is no need for your car to move throughout your stay). 100% recommend, thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful house, Sam, Louise & Laura, xx

Comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and we would love to return again. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. It is warm and suitable for a visit any time of the year. The location is good, just a short walk from the castle and cathedral. There are many good places to eat in that area of the city.

Comfy cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our first visit to Lincoln. The cottage is just a short stroll from Bailgate and the historic part of the city. We were made to feel at home and appreciated the warm welcome by Rosie and Dan (and their holiday tips) and the surprise basket of goodies.

Walking distance to Historic Centre

  • 5 of 5

Nice well kept little cottage, good central heating with the addition of a wood burning stove for those who want to stay home a little more. Better than average from the utensils and kitchen equipment standpoint, although my wife who loves to cook will always find some implement that is not in the inventory wherever we go. Easy walk to Cathedral and Castle and "top of the hill" district. A local convenience store, and Italian restaurant and a pub are all within 10 minutes walk along Lincoln Road. "Steep Hill" which leads down to the High Street shops and the riverside area is aptly named - anyone unsteady on their feet or with breathing problems would do well to bus or Uber down to the lower regions, where one finds the usual M & S, Boots and House of Frazer Department Store.

Fabulous cottage in prime location for Lincoln Bailgate and Steep Hill area

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at this beautiful cottage, which catered for our every need. Really comfortable and beautifully furnished property with lots of extra finishing touches including a delicious welcome basket. Thank you. We were there for a 50th birthday and moving our daughter in to University. Cottage is in a prime location for the Bailgate area, top of Steep Hill, just a short walk to the Castle and Cathedral and the beautiful city of Lincoln. Plenty on offer from culture to shopping, and down to the Brayford Quay and University. Plenty choice in restaurants, and cafes. Something for everyone. Many thanks.
