Description from owner

Description

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

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 new en suite shower both add to the experience. The comfortable armchair, the luxurious sofa, an electric wood burner, books, large flatscreen TV, Blu Ray/DVD player and free unlimited 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.

Location description from owner

The England region

At Witham Cottage you are 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 English 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 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.

Boston

Witham Cottage is 7 miles from the market town of Boston. Once Englands 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. 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 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 - the largest active mill in England. 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.

“Charming cottage a perfect location.”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2015

An absolute gem in a rural idyl. The riverside walk into Boston is a must-around 8 miles in total and you can always catch a bus back or even hire a taxi!Always made to feel very welcome with very charming hosts.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind review of Witham Cottage. We agree - the riverside walk is so lovely, especially in the peak of summer when a little bit of luck means it might be possible to see a couple of narrowboats moored at the halfway point. It was such a pleasure to welcome you back after so long and we hope to see you again very soon!

“Absolutely beautiful cottage and hosts”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2015

The most perfect place we have ever stayed, just forgot the fishing rod. The gardens are amazing too. Alan and Kath are absolutely wonderful and the little cottage is perfect. Had a wonderful time and will return very soon. Thank you ever so much and hope every thing was okay when we left ?

Owner's reply: Thank you for your super review of Witham Cottage. We're delighted you enjoyed yourselves so much in our little corner of England. We pride ourselves on creating an unforgettable place to to spend a few days - or longer - and your care of Witham Cottage during your time here is very much appreciated.

“Fantastic relaxing break”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2015

We stayed here in late February and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing, peaceful break. We received a warm welcome on arrival from the owners and were shown into the cosy, warm cottage. Decorated to a very high standard, the cottage has everything you could want for a short break. The cosiness of the cottage is also perfect for anyone wanting a romantic break. Even though the garden wasn't fully in bloom it was still lovely. Overall, this is a fabulous little cottage and will definitely be returning.

Owner's reply: Thank you for such a lovely review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay so much. We've been busy working in the garden - dry weather helps a lot at the moment - so we'd love you to return another time of the year to enjoy the year's planting and the long evenings by the river.

“Perfect for two”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2015

The cottage is a perfect example of how to appoint and maintain holiday accommodation. Big enough for two people, everything we needed was there and the place spotlessly clean. So many places remember to keep the general areas clean but forget all the extras like glasses, inside drawers etc. It is little touches like this which make you want to return. The setting was lovely and quiet and Alan had just the right amount of formality. Didnt get to meet Kathy but they were there if we needed anything but didnt bother us at all if we didnt. Lovely place to unwind for a few days! Thanks

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for a great view of Witham Cottage. We're delighted you both enjoyed your stay. We do take a lot of time making sure the presentation of Witham Cottage is perfect and are very pleased you valued your time here. Hope to see you again soon.

“Amazing, peacefully location, brilliant cottage”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2014

We stayed at the witham cottage for the first time this September, we will definitely be returning, Kathleen and Alan have provided one of the best holiday lets we have ever stayed at. The cottage itself is furnished immaculately, its amenities provided, ticked every box required for self catering break, the cottage is delightfully decorated for a tranquil, peaceful break [ definitely a Woman,s touch ]. Kathleen, Alan have been great hosts, Ernie the jack Russell will even greet you lovingly. Thank you for a great break. Steve & Sheila

Owner's reply: We are so pleased you both enjoyed your stay at Witham Cottage. It was a joy to have you here and hopefully we'll see you again soon.

“Splendid”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2014

cottage spotlessly clean ,gardens beautiful, had a wonderful weekend, didnt want to leave..will be going back.Hosts very friendly including the dog

“Heavenly Corner of the Lincolnshire Fens”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

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”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

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!

“Beautifully furnished, cosy cottage in a very peaceful location, surrounded by lovely garden and next to River Witham”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

We loved staying here, it was very tranquil and beautiful and a joy to explore the interesting garden and sit by the river. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, but also discreet. The property is reached by a long, private track, making you feel very much in the heart of the countryside. We enjoyed the diversity of staying on the flat fenland but also being able to visit the more hilly country of the Wolds. There is lots locally to see and do and good places to eat and we hope to return one day!

“The beautiful Lincolnshire experience not to miss!”

Reviewed 19 May 2013

Whether you are returning to Lincolnshire to enjoy long forgotten haunts, as we were, or visiting for the first time to stand in awe of the wide open skies, the endless waterways and local hospitality, Witham Cottage is a welcoming, warm, cozy and beautiful place to stay, fully equipped, including free wi-fi at all times. We loved it!
