This was our first visit to Lincoln for a short period so it was essential that the location of our property was close to the Castle and Cathedral. The property fitted the bill exactly being in a small courtyard very close to Westgate of the Castle which provides a nice way to arrive at Steep Hill and the Cathedral.
The property is a delight with the quirky arrangement of a bedroom on the ground floor and one on the 2nd floor both served by excellent bathrooms. The stairs are a nice feature and very easy to use. Its the first time I have stayed in a modern energy conscious house and it was perfect.
My only regret in writing this review is that it will make booking the property in the future harder.

Beehive cottage was excellent and we really enjoyed staying there. It is very well located to enjoy historic Lincoln. The cottage is modern,warm and comfortable. It was very clean and well equipped. We would have booked again for next years Steampunk Asylum event but a lucky family beat us to it. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My friend and I stayed in this fab house for a week on our first ever visit to Lincoln. We could not have been happier with our choice. It was quiet, warm, and well equipped, beds were super comfy and the two bathrooms were a luxury that was much appreciated.

Best of all was the location... just a few minutes walk away from the cathedral, castle, Steep Hill, and all the other most interesting bits of Lincoln. Tons of places to eat nearby, from upmarket restaurants to the best chippy in the east of England (2015 National Fish & Chip awards) just down the road.

I did have to contact the owners to ask a question about something during out stay, and they responded right away, so I give a thumbs up for communications as well.

We thought this place was fantastic value, and hope to stay there again if we're ever back in Lincoln. I can't recommend it enough.

“Practical Choice in Lincoln”
Reviewed April 17, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I've thought long and hard as to whether I wanted to write a review of this property. I didn't want to because once the word gets out, it may be hard to book again. But the proprietors are sharing a great townhouse and their efforts should be commended.
I always start my search with location. I want to be close to restaurants and activities. Check! Perfect location. A plethora of restaurants and pubs in easy walking distance. A grocery just down the street.
Second, I need private parking. Check! Parking space at the door.
Third, washing machine and wifi. Check! The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. Wifi worked perfectly and fast.
Other pluses: Laid-back comfort. All the modern conveniences. Friendly helpful neighbors. Quiet. Comfy beds. Big fluffy white towels. Thorough instructions on the use of all appliances.
One note: the spiral staircase is narrow and we left our largest cases on the ground floor and carried up our items as needed. There was no way two out-of-shape people were going to manage 50 pounds from the ground floor up two levels and not have a heart attack.
We stayed in April and we'll be back.
