“Pretty Glen Cottage”
Reviewed October 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in Glen Cottage in June and thoroughly enjoyed this lovely self contained cottage. Mike could not do enough for us. We had everything we could need plus more. The cottage is in a pretty little village in Castle Bytham. It was a good place for us to branch out as well as setting off to our next accommodation. The only shop at the time had closed so this may be an inconvenience to some. Can highly recommend the Castle Inn pub for a cosy english meal.
We would stay again if we needed accommodation in the area and would recommend Glen Cottage to anyone.

“Luxury fittings, extremely comfortable, very well thought out and such a lovely welcome from the owners.”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Everything we needed and more for our break. Loved the roll top bath in the bedroom and the huge shower that even my 6foot 3 partner could use with plenty of headroom. High end fixtures and fittings. Just perfect! Highly recommended.

“Fabulous cottage in a friendly quiet village”
Reviewed July 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Mike and Jacquie are excellent hosts, providing a warm and friendly welcome to their beautiful cottage. Glen Cottage provides everything you need for a relaxing break. It's presented to a very high standard with high quality fixtures and fittings. It is very clean with good quality bedding, towels, robes and slippers. It has the added luxury of separate shower and bath. The village location provides a very quiet stay with easy walking access to two pubs where good beer and food can be found. We used the cottage as a base to explore Lincolnshire; it is well located close to the main Lincolnshire roads. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, and although we didn't need anything as all was provided, they were always available if needed. We fully recommend this cottage as a quiet relaxing retreat. Many thanks to Mike and Jacquie for making our stay so enjoyable.

“Perfect”
Reviewed December 16, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Just returning from a weeks stay at "Glen Cottage" and had an absolutely perfect time. The photos are extremely accurate, the owners very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble whilst giving you all the space you need. The actual cottage is ideal, fittted extremely well and everything of a very high and elegant standard.

Highly recommended, many thanks and look forward to seeing you in the New Year!

Take care, James

“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 4, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Stayed on a short break this week and have to say what a fantastic little cottage this is. Not far from the M1 with dedicated parking spaces and in a terrific little village with a cracking pub.

I was on my own but my wife would have loved the roll top bath in the bedroom in particular.

The fixtures and fittings are to a very high standard and there are flat screen TV's and Blue Ray DVD players in the lounge and the bedroom. All lovely.

Great hosts too - Mike and Jacqui made me very welcome - so what more can you ask for!

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Hidden away in the delightful village of Castle Bytham, this recently converted limestone barn is an absolute dream. It offers modern facilities, all on one level, which even the most discerning of travellers would find hard to beat. It would appeal to both young and old.
The hosts, Jacqui and Mike, are two of the friendliest and most helpful people you could wish to meet.
My overall score would be ten out of ten!
