“Can't recommend highly enough!”
Reviewed December 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

A beautifully laid out cottage in a perfect city location. The cottage is a lovely blend of old and modern with everything you need. Our dog was very welcome and the neat courtyard garden fully secure. Outside heating and lighting for those evenings when it is good enough to enjoy the fresh air. Great bathroom with wet room shower and Jacuzzi bath, just what is needed after a walk up Steep Hill. Our hosts couldn't do enough for us, have no hesitation in recommending.

Thank you so much Sue and Tony for a lovely review. The cottage is certainly well placed for the up hill Lincoln historic attractions and the serious shopping down the hill too. We are really pleased you liked the cottage blend modern and traditional furnishings. We look forward to welcoming you back again so you can enjoy the courtyard facility!

“Wonderful wonderful experience. ”
Reviewed December 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

In such an ideal location, you couldn't ask for a more pleasant stay. I enjoyed the comfort of the beds, the bite of the freshly-squeezed orange juice and generally the ambience created by the lovely, quaint decor.

Highly recommended. I hope others enjoy their stay as much as I did.

Thank you Tony and Mandy for a lovely review. The cottage is well placed for all that Lincoln has to offer without the need for a car and to explore on foot at an easy pace. We are really pleased that you found the cottage facilities were everything that you needed. We look forward to welcoming you both back to our Lincoln gem.

“A Wonderful Dog Friendly Cottage In A Lovely Location”
Reviewed November 12, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The most beautiful part of Lincoln without doubt is Steep Hill and the Cathedral area so what could be a better location than Well Cottage just off Steep Hill. It is also ideally situated for a quick walk to the High Street for a shopping fix! Add to that a very smart and comfortable 2 bedroom cottage and you have the recipe for a lovely stay in Lincoln. The weather had turned colder for our visit but the cottage is lovely and warm with a convenient gas fire in the lounge. All the little necessities that are quite often overlooked in some holiday rentals are provided in Well Cottage. Charles and Gillian have certainly thought about visitor's requirements - namely a home away from home. Charles was a charming host and helped us unload the car on our arrival. We hope to visit again.

Reviewed November 12, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Arrived at this beautiful cottage which is perfectly located. Greeted by the hosts who were super lovely and charming. Lincoln cathedral is just a stones throw away from this blissful cottage and All the local restaurants are all in walkable distance.

Amazing shopping just down the hill or up the hill depending on your tastes.

I haven't stayed at such a clean, homely self-catering in years.

The free parking was such a bonus!

Thank you for such an amazing stay, we will be back and always already looking at dates!

Thank you so much for your lovely review. The secure car park is always a great asset for our guests to have as parking can be expensive in the centre of Lincoln. We look forward to welcoming you back again to Well Cottage.

“Great townhouse in a great location.”
Reviewed October 30, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This was the second time we stayed at the Well Cottage and even though we only stayed two nights,we had a great experience. We came back to Lincoln for a wedding and then we were going on to Paris. Charles, the new owner since our last visit, met us and welcomed us to the cottage. We were pleasantly surprised by some of the new little touches they have added to the decor. Also the welcoming package they have added, which included bread, bagels, butter, jelly’s even a bottle of wine, even though we don’t drink, were all a very nice touch.
The secure parking, just around the corner, is really convenient. Charles is very engaging and welcoming and gave us a lot of information about the area and a recommendation for dinner. The Wig and Mitre Pub & Restaurant was a great choice and we sat next to the cottage owners, Charles, Gillian and their daughter for dinner. They are a great and welcoming family and they have taken their rental to a higher level with their personal touches. We also noticed that the townhouse was even cleaner than the last time. We are hoping that Charles and Gillian will keep their little gem as nice and as affordable as it is, for the future. Can’t wait to stay here again. John & Rita Schwisow

Thank you so much for your brilliant review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your second stay even more than last time. The "Wig" is an outstanding restaurant with great food at all times. Gillian and I are planning some more upgrades to our little Lincoln gem and will of course keep it affordable with all of our little touches.

“Well equipped, warm friendly greeting.”
Reviewed October 21, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Charles gave us a friendly greeting when we arrived. He showed us round and helped us unload. We enjoyed the welcome pack, especially the wine! The cottage is in a prime location for the two stars of Lincoln - the Castle and Cathedral with easy access to the rest of the city. We had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cottage is superbly modernised and comfortable with plenty of room and modern kitchen, living room and bathroom furnishings.
We know where to come if we visit Lincoln again , which is quite likely as we have still lots to see!
