“Great cottage”

We had a lovely stay at Well Cottage with our family. High quality cottage and great location. Kids loved the jacuzzi bath. We had two cars so the owner let us leave a car at his house which was great. The garage by the cottage is narrow but managed to get the car in and out ok. Would re book to come back and recommend.

Thanks Sarah and glad the children loved the Jacuzzi bath! We read the comments they left in the visitors book and it made us smile. We always offer two car clients our secure parking at our house as it keeps the costs of the holiday stay down. We will be delighted to see you and family again in the future.

“Luxurious cottage in perfect location”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Well Cottage is the perfect accommodation when visiting Lincoln in a group of four. There are two bedrooms with a big comfortable double bed, a wardrobe, a bedside table and a desk with mirror each so that there is enough space for luggage. The kitchen and the living room are very modern and spacious with all the necessary such as dishes and cutlery, pots, pans, fridge and extras like washing machine, dish washer, TV, Play Station, books, DVDs and board games. A big terrace with BBQ and the bathroom with bathtub with jets complement it. We found it very useful that the front door is locked by a combination lock so that there is no need to share one key and to always get home together. Everything was very clean and Charles, the owner, provided us with breakfast for the first morning and kept checking that we found the Cottage and that everything was alright during our stay.

Not only is the Cottage itself a great place, it is also perfectly located halfway up Steep Hill right in the historic centre of Lincoln. The main sights including the Cathedral and the Castle, the best tearooms and restaurants and the shopping area on High Street are only a short walk away.

All in all we were very happy that we chose that place and I would love to stay at Well Cottage again.

“Great location, great value for money, and hosts were suberb”

We booked Well Cottage on short notice on advice from a friend who had stayed there earlier in the year. We were not disappointed as it excelled in all of expectations. It has recently had a complete internal make over and the standard of bed linen and towels etc were excellent - none of the cheap as chips stuff. The Cottage is in great condition and its location on Steep Hill is perfect. The hosts were very helpful during our stay. It even has a secure garage which must have saved us loads on car park fees over our weekend.

Thank you very much Carolyn for such an honest and complimentary review. We are working to "up the level" of experience for our clients who stay with us at Well Cottage without increasing the costs. Its location on Steep Hill is probably the best available for up hill and down Lincoln. Thanks again for your review.

“Fabulous Find”

My husband and I spent a week in Lincoln and stayed in Well Cottage. Excellent location.
Well appointed cottage. It fit our needs perfectly and felt like home! We would recommend this cottage to everyone who is interested in exploring Lincoln from a cozy and comfortable base. We also enjoyed afternoon tea at Lady Rose's Edwardian Tea Room on Free School Lane, across from the city library. It was the perfect way to end our stay in Lincoln.

We are really pleased you enjoyed our cozy cottage on Well Lane. We have just upgraded some of the furnishings, kitchen furniture and bed linen to hotel standard. So hopefully on your return visit to Lincoln it will be an even more pleasurable experience.

“Faultless”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Thanks Clare for the rental of your wonderful holiday home. I am not going to repeat here what has said before but we will return. Tackled steep hill a few times glad the cottage was halfway up/down. Loved everything about the cottage. Underfloor heating in the bathroom and kitchen, everywhere clean and fresh linen on the bed. Didnt have time to try the jacuzzi but will on our next visit. The weather was good so we sat in the back on a few days listening to the birds and soaking up the sun filled patio with a drink. The cottage was so relaxing and even though we were slab bang in the centre you wouldn't have known it. If there is one thing I would change it was the annoying load fast ticking clock in the kitchen. It only reminded us that it was closer to us leaving.

Thanks again Clare, wishing you continued success in this delightful holiday rental

Thank you for this review. We cannot improve upon faultless and we really appreciate that description. It is a beautiful place and would not be able to imagine a better location given the qualities of both up and down the hill. I shall throw the clock away but like a boomerang I'm sure it will fly right back. Thank you also for your wishes
