About the property

Cottage in Saltfleet, Nr. Louth, Lincolnshire, England - Peaceful location only 2 minutes walk from the coast offering walks over marshland and sand

Beach Cottage is a pretty coastal cottage located in a quiet and peaceful private road only yards from the Lincolnshire coast. The coastal theme used in decor throughout the property provides a tranquil and restful environment in which to enjoy a relaxing break. The property offers two bedrooms and accommodates up to three people. There is a private and enclosed rear garden, which can be viewed through French doors from the lounge/diner. A table and four chairs is provided for outdoor eating. The cottage offers a multi-fuel log burning stove and background heating via electric storage heaters. Parking for up to three vehicles is available to the front of the property. Electricity is provided via a pre-payment metre. Top-up facilities for electricity are available from a general provisions store in the near-by village of North Somercotes. Facilities available in the pretty village of Saltfleet itself includes two public houses, a general store/garage as well as churches and other points of interest. Saltfleet itself is located on the Lincolnshire coast approximately 15 minutes from the pretty and historical market town of Louth - well worth a visit. Slightly further afield is the popular holiday resort of Cleethorpes - a seaside town offering seaside activities, coastal walks as well as pretty shops, cafes and restaurants. To the south of Saltfleet, is the seaside town of Mablethorpe - a lively and popular holiday destination - and the popular village of Horncastle, with it's plethora of antique shops is only approximately 30 minutes drive away. Visitors to the cottage can take advantage of the opportunity to visit the Donna Nook Nature Reserve which provides a birthing ground to thousands of grey seal pups each year (October - December). As well as seeing the seals and their pups, there is also an opportunity to take a coastal walk through the nature reserve which hosts a variety of wild birds regularly seen in coastal locations. Donna Nook Nature Reserve is approximately 2 miles away.

About Christine Saunders

I purchased this cottage so that I could enjoy somewhere to visit and enjoy holidays and weekends by the sea. Working full time in Sheffield, the cottage offers a peaceful retreat close to the coast in a tranquil part of Lincolnshire. I hope you enjoy staying there as much as I do.

Christine Saunders purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Christine Saunders chose East Lindsey District

I love the location of the property in particular i.e. so close to the sea - but also the setting is delightful with a private and enclosed garden that attracts birds and the wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Being able to walk to sandy coastal walks within a few minutes of leaving the cottage is brilliant - my dog loves it.

Beach Cottage is very comfortable, with carefully chosen, tasteful furnishings and is extremely well-stocked. It felt like a home-away-from-home. It was spotless on arrival and very welcoming; there were even some welcome gifts. Such a lovely touch!

Our stay was relaxing and we found it to be the perfect base for exploring this corner of Lincolnshire. Moreover, I was delighted to be able to bring my two dogs and they loved their walks on the dunes. Thank you to Chris for sharing Beach Cottage.

Wonderful holiday cottage, felt at home as soon as we arrived, lovely light and airy all round the cottage, and really spacious relaxing garden which our two dogs loved. Only a couple of minutes from the beach which is great for long walks and again the dogs loved it. Situated down a quiet lane, it is perfect for chilling out.. We certainly hope to visit again in the future, Highly recommended. Thank you Christine.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, cosy cottage, lovely garden, perfectly located... a restful stay :)

  • 4 of 5

Two adults and a large dog, just the right size, it is in a very quiet location, there was plenty or room to park your car, we ate in every night even though there was plenty of dining out choices... we wanted a place to treat like a home from home and that's exactly what it was.... the dog loved the garden and made himself at home laying outside all day as he does at home.... there were plenty of places to walk him and lots of other dog friendly folk around :)... lovely bedding and towels.... partner was disappointed at the size of the TV but that's personal preference, the log burner was so easy to use and just as easy to clean.... I don't think anyone will be disappointed if they book this cottage !!

This is our third year of visiting Beach Cottage and we love its tranquil setting with easy access to the nature reserve and long walks on the beach. The cottage is decorated in soft beachy hues and the beds and furnishings are comfy and of a very high standard. Thank you again Christine, for an enjoyable stay in your super cottage.
