“Thoroughly enjoyable stay in a deIghtful cottage”
Reviewed May 5, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A delightful cottage in the gorgeous village of Castle Bytham. The cottage is beautifully laid out and decorated. Everything that you need was included. Some lovely extra touches including a food hamper with the essentials to kick start the self catering break.
The welcome was warm and friendly. This is perfect place to relax and chill out.
A great base for exploring South Lincolnshire and the nearby historic market town of Stamford.
We highly recommend this cottage. . So please we found it, couldn't have asked for better. A big thank you to J and M.

“Perfect romantic cottage in lovely village”
Reviewed February 26, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had an absolutely lovely stay in this wonderfully decorated little cottage. It was more than enough room for our party of two adults and two children, with the settee in the living room becoming a good sized double bed quite easily. The little things made this place stand out from the rest such as the generous welcome pack, the dressing gowns and slippers, all of which made it feel like a spa break. It would be perfect for any couple looking for a romantic break with its huge roll-top bath. The cottage is located in a pretty village with two pubs both selling real ale and food, and because it’s near the A1 you are within striking distance of so many nice places to visit North and South such as Stamford and Peterborough. We’d love to come back again for a battery recharge if the grandparents can be suitably bribed to take the nippers.

“Great cottage”
Reviewed June 20, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Mike was away when we arrived but left the key with the cleaner. The review were right, its a lovely cottage close to Stamford and Rutland waters. The cottage has everything you would need plus more, a big shower and a very comfortable bed. We did have a small problem with the T V but its going to be sorted. Mike came back the day before we left and couldn't be more helpful and friendly. I would recommend this cottage very highly.

“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.
