“Surpassed our expectations”
Reviewed February 23, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This cottage surpassed our expectations. It was, without exception, the best UK cottage that we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail with both the decorations and the amenities was fantastic. The jacuzzi bath was an additional luxury and the wine, milk, bread, orange juice etc... was very much appreciated. The location and the garage facility added convenience to the pleasure of staying in this cottage. We would like to thank Charles and Gillian for a fabulous experience and would definitely like to visit again.

“Welcoming and luxurious house in very central Lincoln.”
Reviewed February 17, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

We travelled with our 10 month old daughter to see friends in Lincoln. Charles could not have been more attentive to our needs and provides a travel cot, high chair and even some plastic dishes and spare baby wipes! The stairs are steep and uncarpeted (and so slippy although there us handrail) and the jacuzzi bath, which may be lovely for adults, has lots of nozzles to stick little fingers into and an uneven base but this would not put us off staying again.
The location is extremely central and it was easy to find the garage (our Ford focus fitted in neatly). We appreciated all the thoughtful extras, supply of food basics and bottle of fizz on arrival! The underfloor heating in the kitchen was especially welcome since we arrived in the snow!
Thank you for a lovely weekend!

Thank you Kirstin for your positive review.
The Cottage location is without doubt perfectly situated for exploring the "up hill" Lincoln cultural quarter, and all that "down Hill" shopping has to offer. The complimentary garage is without doubt a great asset as parking in Lincoln City center can be expensive. Going forward, for our future "small guests" we are providing a baby bath with a stand and some baby toiletries so the small ones don't miss out on the Cottage Jacuzzi experience. We understand our guests travel from all over the world to stay with us in Lincoln, and we like to provide complimentary package on arrival to welcome them to Well Cottage. We know the under floor heating is a hit with all of our guests, but the summer time courtyard BBQ may just "Trump" that experience.

This is a lovely cottage on the door step of all the sights in Lincoln. It had all the facilities we needed, lovely fires, walk in shower, well equipped kitchen, comfy bed, nice courtyard garden, garage. The owner was very helpful and we felt we could contact him any time if needed. The bottle of bubbly and some provisions in the fridge were lovely welcome extras.

“Perfect base to explore Lincoln”
Reviewed January 28, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed at Well Cottage in mid January (4 adults and 2 children) for a 3 night stay. The cottage is perfect. Very centrally located, which means that a car is not necessary, and the cottage is furnished to a very high standard.

Car parking is provided (if required) in a secure garage about 1 minutes walk away from the cottage.

Everything you could possibly need for a short stay is provided. The cottage also as a lovely outside Terrace which I am sure is a perfect place for a barbecue in the summer (unfortunately, as we visited in January it was far too cold to use it - I suppose that gives us an excuse to come back in the summer! Not that we need one).

Charles, the owner, is extremely helpful and will bend over backwards to help.

The only negative ... We had to come home.....

We will be back.

Thank you James for taking the time to review our Cottage and its brilliant location for exploring Lincoln. You must return again when the weather is kind to enjoy the Courtyard with its views over the City and have a few beers with the BBQ.

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 January 22, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

people found this review helpful

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.
