This is a small paradise in the middle of the Lincolnshire countryside. The welcome Barbara gives is the warmest you will find. You can choose ANYTHING for breakfast. Rooms are tidy, bathroom spacious. We absolutely loved it!!!!

Great breakfast, lots of choice. Relaxing location so peaceful. Very welcoming hostess. Barbara loves her wildlife and garden. Located a few miles from Woodhall Spa and well off the road so very quiet

Great relaxing B&B in a rural location 5 minutes’ drive from the centre of Woodhall Spa. Barbara makes you very welcome with tea and cake on arrival and a chat about what you can expect from your stay at Kirkstead Old Mill Cottage.

Highly recommend this rural bed and breakfast cottage. Warm welcome and a homely feel is ensured here with owner Barbara and her staff. Superb breakfasts each morning with an amazing choice. A five minute drive from here takes you into the centre of Woodhall Spa.

Barbara is one of the most interesting and lovely people I have met in a long time. I turned up a week earlier than I should have due to my mix up on dates and she could not have been more accommodating. The cottage is a home from home and you are made so welcome. The breakfast is wonderful and... More

Stayed 4 nights in the balcony room, very large with impressive views over the extensive garden pity weather wasn't better so that we could have sat out on the balcony but Barbara's hosting certainly made up for it. Never before have we been so well looked after...NOTHING is too much trouble. The breakfasts are to die for with every conceivable... More

Stayed with Barbara for three weeks during the spring as work had me based in Lincolshire for that time. I really enjoyed my stay, and Barbara was a very attentive hostess. The cottage is lovely and its situation, on the banks of the Witham by the old water railway, is very special. Only two slight drawbacks are the long, rough... More

This is a must place to stay if you visit Lincolnshire.the wildlife is brilliant. The owner Barbara cannot do enough for you and the breakfast will take some beating! The rooms are very spacious and comfortable with very good sized bathrooms. The balcony room is beautiful. The bathroom in the Monet room is stunning! A little off the beaten track... More
