We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Canal Farm. North Lincolnshire has an amazing and unspoilt coastline and Canal Farm is such a haven for wildlife, we take great delight when our guests fall in love with the area as much as we have.

These cottages are fabulous with everything you need for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The countryside location is wonderful and since it is only a short drive to the coast you get the best of both worlds.The hosts are very friendly and very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend a holiday here to anyone.

Nicely laid out cottages, with everything you need, and friendly hosts. Close to the coast and lots of wildlife, including barn owls on site. Not far to shops of Louth, and nice walks in the Wolds. Many good pubs around. Supermarkets deliver to the cottages, and farm shop a short drive away.

The main purpose of our visit was to visit and photograph the seals at nearby Donna Nook. It was just a few minutes drive from the cottage so we were able to take an easy...

We stayed here as close to a family wedding. It has been a great stay. Cottages well situated in lovely grounds. Perfect for families. We rented kingfisher and barn owl - both very nice. We felt very welcomed and would return if we were staying in the area.

My wife and I, plus our dog, Molly, had an excellent 3 night stay at Canal Farm Cottages. We stayed in Ticklepenny, which featured a double bedroom, plus a further single bed in an 'L'-shaped configuration. The single bed can be curtained off for more privacy. The kitchen had all the necessary facilities, leading onto a quite spacious dining area,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Canal Farm offers 3 comfortable self-catering cottages, each with it's own private courtyard area that have been created through the sympathetic conversion of traditional farm buildings. They are located in the small hamlet of Austen Fen, on the banks of the Louth Canal. Canal Farm is the ideal destination for walkers, cyclists, bird watchers and is a nature lovers paradise with abundant birdlife on the farm, including our resident Barn Owl. A tranquil setting for a perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, with wonderful views over open countryside to the Lincolnshire Wolds. Only 7 miles from the quaint Georgian market town of Louth. ... more   less
