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

I stayed at Orchard Cottage for one night whilst visiting friends in the area. I stayed in the self-contained suite separate to the main house which has a lovely cottage feel. It is immaculate and spotlessly clean with tea and coffee making facilities and a separate living room to relax and watch TV. I was made to feel very welcome... More

We stayed just one night while we waited for our furniture to be delivered to our new home in Saxilby. We were very tired and could not have been treated any better. The hosts are kind, friendly and very welcoming. Their home is spotless, warm and all our needs were catered for. Breakfast was delicious with so much choice. Thank... More

I had such a lovely experience staying here over the weekend for a friends 30th birthday that was nearby. Margaret and Gordon were so lovely and friendly, and just the perfect amount of welcoming and chatty, whilst respecting our privacy. I loved staying there and recommend it to anyone. They even ended up giving us a ride to the party!... More

We had a lovely 2-night stay over the Easter Weekend in the garden suite with our 11-year old son. Having two rooms was great, as our son slept on the sofa in the living room, and we had the double bed. The living room had plates and glasses, so we opted to get takeaways (pizza and Chinese) from the restaurants... More

Used the guest suite and twin room. Liked how everything needed were there in the rooms, including TV, toiletries, hairdryer, teapot and tea cups and even wine glasses, takeaway and tourist information. Breakfast tasted really good, and instead of being fully self-served, only side dishes were self-served and main breakfast was noted down and then cooked in the kitchen next... More

Lovely house, lovely garden; Margaret and Gordon are very friendly and attentive hosts, and serve an excellent breakfast... What more can one say about a superlative bed and breakfast ?

We stayed the weekend in the self contained annexe overlooking the garden which was very relaxing. Breakfast had plenty of choices and food was superb. Margaret and Gordon were the perfect hosts. Would highly recommend.

We spent the weekend in Margaret & Gordon's snug quiet self contained annex at the rear of their home overlooking their well tended garden. Saxilby is very convenient for Lincoln. As well as a good sized bedroom, with a very comfortable bed, we had a lounge area to relax in, and of course there was an en suite shower &... More
