Everything you could want in a holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at Well Cottage and were sad to leave. The Cottage is situated in the perfect position to explore Lincoln by foot. The Cottage has everything you need to start your holiday. Charles met us and explained the Cottage and how everything worked and was easy to contact for any extra information. We enjoyed all the facilities of the Cottage and having a private courtyard to sit in in the evening was very pleasant. Even though we're from Sydney, we're planning on returning and working a longer stay into our itinerary. We can't recommend Well Cottage highly enough.

The very best spot in Lincoln!

  • 5 of 5

Oh wow, where to start? This property is truly amazing. It's located in the most charming part of a beautiful, historic city, within a few minutes walk of the cathedral, castle, and darling shops and pubs. This perfectly decorated cottage is immaculately clean and has so many thoughtful touches that I can't even begin to name them all. The gorgeous bathroom is like a private spa (stocked with literally anything you might need, including extra toothbrushes, face wipes, pads, razors, etc, in addition to the requisite shampoo/conditioner/hand lotion. etc). The kitchen is light and airy and full of modern amenities and it opens up on to a sunny, completely private patio. The bright bedrooms are comfy and full of the little things you'd find in fine hotels (slippers, fluffy pillows and duvets, wardrobes and closets with nice hangers, etc.). The living room is stocked with great movies and soft sofas and blankets. Every room reveals thoughtful surprises. It's as though the owners sat down together one day and said to eachother, "I know, let's think of everything our guests could possibly want, and make sure we provide them."

Charles (who's very easy to keep in contact with, btw) met us on arrival and was the consummate host, enthusiastically sharing info about the cottage and local area. He even provided some gluten free food for our kids who have celiac problems.SO kind. This is the sort of cottage I could happily plunk myself down in and never leave. Honestly, it was love at first sight. Please, oh please, Charles and Gillian, can't I stay forever? :)

PS If you like history, don't miss the cathedral rooftop tour! Oak beams from nearby Sherwood forest, cut in the time of Robin Hood!

Actually 10 Stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Charles is the best host EVER! The facilities in the cottage are 2nd to none and the furnishings are fab! Unfortunately 2 of the adults in our party dropped out at short notice but Charles was brilliant and re arranged our holiday to suit our new configuration. The cottage is situated at a brilliant spot - if you want to go down hill or up hill you get a mid way break! We had every intention to dine out but once we were in the cottage we didn't want to leave and thanks to the butchers at the top of the hill we enjoyed some beautiful steak!! The cottage has everything you ever need, spotlessly clean and comfy. If you decide to rent this cottage please love it as much as the owners clearly do x
