Orchard Cottage offers everything the visitor could desire. The accommodation is immaculately presented, commodious and characterful. The village of Saxilby is quaint in itself and conveniently located for exploring the gem which is the City of Lincoln (a short drive away). The breakfast is generous, healthy and served in the most genteel of settings. Most importantly, the proprietors, Margaret and... More
