    Ideally situated for Lincoln and the wider Lincolnshire countryside

    It was a perfect stay! However. booking through Sykes is not a good idea. I could have got it £600 cheaper if I had booked through Air BnB. Book through Air BNB, avoid using Sykes.

    The owners had thought of everything. They were excellent hosts and provided nice thoughtful touches like the welcome pack with bread, milk, wine and other local produce. The location was great for visiting Lincoln. We took the park and ride bus to the cathedral and castle and then walked down Steep Hill to the centre. We visited RAF Coningsby and did the tour of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Hangar and the International Bomber Command Centre Museum at Lincoln. Both were very interesting and moving. Whilst sat out at the cottage the Red Arrows flew over practising and we were thrilled to watch their display. All in all it was an excellent holiday and we would highly recommend the cottage.
