Would certainly recommend and hope to stay again.

R and D – Linlithgow Scotland – July 2018

The very best spot in Lincoln!

Oh wow, where to start? This property is truly amazing. It’s located in the most charming part of a beautiful, historic city, within a few minutes walk of the cathedral, castle, and darling shops and pubs. This perfectly decorated cottage is immaculately clean and has so many thoughtful touches that I can’t even begin to name them all. The gorgeous bathroom is like a private spa (stocked with literally anything you might need, including extra toothbrushes, face wipes, pads, razors, etc, in addition to the requisite shampoo/conditioner/hand lotion. etc). The kitchen is light and airy and full of modern amenities and it opens up on to a sunny, completely private patio. The bright bedrooms are comfy and full of the little things you’d find in fine hotels (slippers, fluffy pillows and duvets, wardrobes and closets with nice hangers, etc.). The living room is stocked with great movies and soft sofas and blankets. Every room reveals thoughtful surprises. It’s as though the owners sat down together one day and said to each other, “I know, let’s think of everything our guests could possibly want, and make sure we provide them.”

Charles (who’s very easy to keep in contact with, btw) met us on arrival and was the consummate host, enthusiastically sharing info about the cottage and local area. He even provided some gluten free food for our kids who have celiac problems. So kind. This is the sort of cottage I could happily plonk myself down in and never leave. Honestly, it was love at first sight. Please, oh please, Charles and Gillian, can’t I stay forever? 🙂

PS If you like history, don’t miss the cathedral rooftop tour! Oak beams from nearby Sherwood Forest, cut in the time of Robin Hood!

B, R, S and K – Oregon USA – July 2018

We had the most amazing time again in this beautiful cottage. The finish of the cottage and attention to details is impeccable and the hospitality is 6* (and the rest) Can’t wait to come back (and sure will recommend it to everybody who likes us 🙂 What an amazing cottage and Lincoln is a lovely place we will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much 🙂

Would 100% stop again! 🙂

PS – Jacuzzi bath is heaven.

B’s & Ws – Cardiff Wales – June 2018

Our second visit to Well Cottage, just as great as our first time with extras that were very welcome. Would recommend Belton (NT) and the Aviation Museum near Newark (went on a rainy day). Worth the drive to Sutton-on-Sea lovely beach. Burton Road Chippy an absolute must!! Thank you again xx

P, N, J & A – Bedford and Buxton – April 2018

What a lovely base from which to discover a very interesting and attractive city. Perfectly positioned a little way up Steep Hill but not so far that we needed ropes and oxygen masks to reach it, this is a delightful little home from home. We felt welcome and comfortable and happy and would recommend this cottage (and this city) to anyone who wants a break.

J,K &H – Ipswich, Suffolk – April 2018

D&T – Suffolk – April 2018

Absolutely fantastic! We have enjoyed staying in this lovely cottage. It is a wonderful location – so central but lovely and tranquil, your thoughtfulness, leaving everything we need to remove the stress of finding where to buy milk and bread on arrival made all the difference. We felt spoilt with the big extras of wine orange juice etc. It all added up to a five star holiday. We hope to stay again soon. It is a great way to combine a holiday within “A” s parents in Lincolnshire. I have already recommended it to family and friends – what a fantastic “Google” find!

K&A – Birmingham – April 2018

A wonderful 3 day stay at Well Cottage and we really wish we were stopping longer! The cottage has everything, especially enjoyed getting back to the warm cosy cottage at night, pulling on our complimentary gowns & slippers, and relaxing with a glass of wine in front of the fire. Hope to be back very soon.

C&S – Derby April 2018

Had an amazing weekend in the most perfect cottage. What a find must thank my friend for recommending it! The cottage has everything you could possibly need, the finishing touches are fantastic, the breakfast pack, milk and fresh orange a great touch. The “Fizz” was much appreciated after a long week.  Perfect location for a stay in Lincoln. We had planned to cook on Friday and eat out on Saturday, however, we ended up staying in on both nights! A big thank you to Charles and Gillian.  We look forward to seeing you again soon.

A, I , P and E – North Lincolnshire January 2018

G – Moama NSW Australia and R – Melbourne Victoria Australia January 2018

L, S and A – London UK October 2017

Thank you to Charles and Gill. I noticed that we forgot to write in the visitors’ book in April 2015 so I would not forget this time. We love this place! It puts us right in the middle of all the action! We really enjoyed the “Sausage Festival”. We had no idea how many ways you serve sausage. We had a wonderful stay. We can tell that great love and care have been put into this home. We cannot wait to come back again.

Thank you Charles and Gill.

S, D & P – UK October 2017

We don’t want to go home!!! Beautiful cottage with everything you need. I had NO!!! intention of cooking but got so cosy I didn’t want to go out! Thank you. Charles you are a star ! We have rented lots of cottages but your hosting skills surpass all – If you hadn’t been here to greet us we would have abandoned the car and given up hope of finding the car park. You are ACE!!!

C, D and C – UK August 2017

“We had a fantastic time over in Lincoln on my 56th birthday. We love this city and we have in all my travels stopped in such a wonderful place as Well Cottage. We will 100% be back again soon. Many thanks to Charles and Gillian for making the cottage so stunning in every way. We love the place – thank you.

C&S – UK August 2017

“We had a lovely stay. The hosts are wonderful and thoughtful so thank you. Go to the Modern for a curry. The Straight and Narrow for a good pint and Pizza Express for a good pizza. We look forward to being repeat customers.”

C&S – Canada – July 2017

“We have enjoyed our short break here very much. The cottage is well located for the principle sights of Lincoln, and the hosts have thought of everything to make the accommodation comfortable eg “real coffee”! Unfortunately we didn’t have the opportunity to test the Jacuzzi. Oh, and having the garage was a real bonus and was one of the deciding factors when we were booking. Thank you Charles for the pre-visit information and also for being there to show us “the ropes” on arrival.”

“Well appreciated – Well Equipped – Well Enjoyed – Well Cottage!”

M&C – UK – July 2017

“Many thanks again for your hospitality and for your personalized navigation help. We’ve enjoyed our time in Well Cottage very much and only wish we had longer. You have made it into a very comfortable retreat, and it really is a perfect location for exploring Lincoln on foot, which is really the only way to explore a medieval city. Seeing the visiting Domesday Book as well as the resident Magna Carta and Charter of the Forest was unexpected and thrilling. We are leaving with a couple of silver imps for our children. We found the imp in the Cathedral with some help from a docent who saw me staring unsuccessfully up at the top of the pillar by St. Hugh. “I expect you’re looking for the imp,” he said. Indeed.”

B&U – USA – May 2017

“Wow! Amazing accommodation – everything we needed for our stay. Thank you Charles and Gillian for making us feel so welcome. Perfect location for touring the sights.  The free garage made having the car no problem parking it and forgot about it!”

J&J –  UK – April 2017
