Cathedral Quarter of Lincoln. Charming terraced cottage 2 mins walk to Cathedral
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Fantastic stay in a fabulous property! Could not be in a better location.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this property justice! Its such a lovely, modern, well thought out cottage. Technically it is small, but as it provides everything you need and it is done to such a high standard it doesnt feel small...

It is literally a 1 minute walk to the castle gates, definatly on the 'best side of town'

There are views out of the bedroom window of the castle and the Cathedral, we lay in bed with the window open listening to the Cathederal bells - not another sound could be heard.

The owner is absolutly lovely, very friendly and helpful. Couldn't do enough to accomodate our arrival and departure, despite a big traffic hold up.

Little welcome gifts were greatfully received; thoughtful and very useful.

We visited Lincoln to see the Steam Punk festival in August - the cottage is in the best place; no late night noise, but back in 2 mins for food and drink from the fridge! We had an absolutly brilliant (if not slightly bonkers!!) weekend, enhanced by the lovely owner and the fabulous cottage.Thank you. Can not reccomend highly enough.

Lovely Lincolnshire Bolthole

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Lincoln a few times but this was our first stay in The Ramparts cottage. What a lovely cosy cottage. Immaculately and tastefully decorated throughout. The cottage had everything we could possibly need for our short break. Only sorry we couldn't have booked for longer.

Cannot recommend highly enough!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is fantastic - very comfortable, beautifully done out with everything we could possibly have needed. The location is brilliant (a minute from the Castle, the Cathedral and the top of Steep Hill) - a fantastic base to explore Lincoln from. Lincoln is a wonderful city with so many fabulous pubs and restaurants and a very large amount of these are within a very short walk of the cottage, as are some lovely tea rooms and shops. The owners were extremely helpful, very friendly and flexible and made us feel very welcome. We had a wonderful weekend and are already looking forward to going back!

Compleet ingerichte cottage. Prima locatie met uitzicht aan de achterkant op het kasteel en op minder dan 100 meter afstand van kathedraal en winkeltjes. We hebben genoten!
