Witham Cottage (Riverside)
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The beautiful riverside Witham Cottage is just north of the hamlet of Langrick, near Boston. It nestles in charming gardens right next to the peaceful River Witham as it takes its journey from the magnificent city of Lincoln down to the medieval port of Boston. Carefully and lovingly prepared, Witham Cottage is the self-contained annex to a classic Georgian farmhouse occupied by the owners of the cottage.
Enjoy two acres of gardens and the private stretch of the riverbank which is so quiet all you'll hear is the sounds of the countryside or maybe you'll be lucky enough to see a little cabin cruiser bob along in front of you.
You're assured the warmest of welcomes from Kathy and Alan who are always on hand to give you advice on the local area. The self-catering cottage reflects the country style of living and is beautifully equipped for your stay. Pastel decor, solid oak furniture and wooden floors immediately create a quality atmosphere. A smart fitted kitchen with all your pots and pans and a sparkling white en suite shower both add to the experience. The comfortable armchairs, an electric wood burner, books, large flatscreen TV/DVD and free Wi-Fi all make for a cosy evening after a wonderful day exploring Lincolnshire's diverse landscapes and attractions.
Witham Cottage is a peaceful and romatic getaway for two people although we can accommodate a couple with a small child on a foldaway bed. If you're planning to take advantage of the flatter parts of our countryside and bring your cycles, we'll store them for you securely for free. Just ask us when you arrive.

The Heart of England/Peak District
At Witham Cottage you're an easy drive away from the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, dotted with chocolate box villages and small market towns. A trip to Horncastle is a must for all antiques hunters and RAF heritage is just 7 miles away at the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight based at RAF Coningsby.
The Gibraltar Point nature reserve is just over 30 miles from Witham Cottage - an area covering 3 miles of diverse coast with sand dunes, marshland and lagoons, and internationally recognised for rare species of wildlife.
The cottage is close to much of England's heritage - within 30 miles is the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral and the city itself. Peterborough Cathedral is just 40 miles away, the magnificent Elizabethan country house at Burghley, Stamford, is an hour away and the Sandringham Estate is just 47 miles from the cottage.
There are many other activities on offer from this wonderful holiday home - the Kinema in the Woods, a traditional picturehouse at Woodhall Spa that will transport you back to the 1930s - is just 12 miles from the Witham Cottage. Pay a visit on a Saturday evening and enjoy the original organ, complete with live organist, rise majestically from under the floor!
For golfers, there are courses just a short drive away - notably at Boston West, just 10 minutes away. The cottage offers walking and cycling from your doorstep. There are also boat trips, fishing and many water based activities on offer along the River Witham. After a day's walking, cycling or exploring, the beauty of Witham Cottage will lure you to simply sit, with a glass of wine and enjoy the occasional passing narrowboats and little cabin cruisers and, of course, the big Lincolnshire skies.
Witham Cottage is 7 miles from the market town of Boston. Once England's most important port after London, its heart is dominated by the magnificent cathedral-like church of St Botolph, the largest parish church in England. Its tower rises 272 feet above the surrounding landscape where it appears as a stump, hence its nickname 'Boston Stump'. On a clear day it is possible to see four counties from the viewing platform up the bell tower.
Within easy reach of the church, through the cobbled street of Wormgate, you'll reach the charming tree-lined Boston Marina. Stroll along the riverside and view the many different watercraft all moored alongside, bobbing up and down on the river.
The twice-weekly market convenes in front of the church on Wednesdays and Saturdays with a local craft market most Thursdays.
Off the main centre are several mediaeval streets with independent shops and restaurants and one of the main waterways is home to the Maud Foster windmill, a working mill and tearooms - the largest active mill in England. Treat yourself to a delicious lunch or afternoon tea with bread baked on the premises and take home some locally milled flour.
Blackfriars is an independent theatre tucked away in the oldest part of Boston, housed in the remaining part of a mediaeval friary. Productions are incredibly varied and well worth a visit.

"Heavenly Corner of the Lincolnshire Fens"
Everyone should stay here for some rest and relaxation. My memory will be of sitting with a glass of wine by the river and watching the sunset. The cottage and gardens are immaculate and beautiful. Kath and Alan are so friendly and helpful and want you to share their lovely grounds, and leave you to enjoy it all. The price of the cottage per night is excellent value and comes with very good WiFi. Also the Bubble Car Museum at the beginning of the lane is well worth a visit, not just for cars but furniture and items from the 50's and 60's which I remember using and wished I had kept!

"The perfect location for a peaceful stay"
I visited the cottage from the 12th until the 14th of July. We arrived at the cottage and were given the warmest of welcomes from Ernie the dog, who even took a little ride to the cottage in our car! We arrived at the cottage and were greeted warmly by both hosts, who remained welcoming throughout our whole stay! The cottage was impeccably clean and fully equipped with everything necessary for a lovely weekend. The grounds are beautiful and we loved sitting by the river! Highly recommend a stay in this wonderful cottage, I hope that I can return soon!
