Description from owner


Welcome to our romantic, cosy cottage, set in the delightful south Lincolnshire village of Castle Bytham. Our lovingly restored barn conversion offers bags of character, combined with comfort and style. Exposed stone walls and natural oak are set off by luxurious furnishings and contemporary touches that even extend to large flat-screen TVs and Blu-ray players.

Our work regularly requires us to stay at top hotels around the world, and we have used that experience to create a fabulous boutique-style home from home. Attention to detail is the key here – from craftsman-made cupboard doors to the chic feature roll-top bath.

This self-contained one-bedroom cottage is perfect as a romantic hideaway at any time of the year – just the place to snuggle up in front of the wood burner-effect gas fire after a long walk in the countryside. That said, the property is equally well suited to families or two couples, as there is a very comfortable sofa bed in the lounge. Situated at the end of our drive, the cottage has off-road parking for up to two cars and a lovely patio area for the exclusive use of guests.

Glen Cottage enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting, and is within easy walking distance of two pubs (serving excellent food and real ale). Children are welcome; but unfortunately we are unable to accommodate pets, or smokers.

Further details indoors

The Living Room incorporates the kitchen and dining areas. Curtains are courtesy of Laura Ashley, and lighting is controlled by two dimmer switches at the front door. For added character, one wall has exposed stonework, and there is a good quality sofa bed made by Multi-York.

Heating is by thermostatically controlled electric panel heaters,and a 6.7kw gas fired wood burner in the living room – so it’s nice and cosy.

The living room has sliding folding doors, and matching patio doors. There is a wall mounted 42" TV with TV and recessed DVD/Blu-ray player. There are also DVD's CD's and games for you to enjoy.

Flooring is oak laminate throughout, with a black granite hearth under the wood burner. The stylish white gloss kitchen comes complete with black granite worktop, large combination microwave oven (not a full size cooker), a 4 ring hob with extractor fan, and full size fridge freezer. Sorry there is no dishwasher or washing machine (however, we offer a laundry service if required).

The toilet is between the living room and the bedroom, and has travertine tiles, heated towel rail, make-up mirror, shaver point and bathroom cabinet.

A solid oak door lead to the double bedroom, where you’ll find a king-size bed with overhead reading lights and a wall-mounted 32” TV also with DVD/Blu-ray player. Alongside is a feature bath, with bronze mosaic tiles, and there’s a large enclosed mains pressure shower as well, with travertine wall tiles. A bedside radio/alarm with iPod dock has also been provided, and the bedroom also has an exposed stone wall.

Also included: all heating and electricity, complimentary slippers, use of guest robes, bedding, towels, plus quality soap and shampoo. There is a welcome pack on arrival, which includes fresh milk, bread, butter, local cheese, tea/coffee, sugar, fruit, biscuits, cake and a local paper.

Further details outdoors

The patio area has a patio table with 4 chairs and parasol. In addition there is rattan style seating, double outdoor sockets and mains lighting. There is a garden bench at the front of the cottage and off-road parking for two cars (with PIR controlled lighting). The garden is mainly grass, with shrubs and bushes around the outside. There is plenty of space for children to run around and play, and a badminton net/racquets etc is available on request.

Very Good

“Lovely location and very friendly People.”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2018

Castle Bytham was a lovely little village, Glen cottage was a lovely comfortable place to come and just relax. The owners were both welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. We used the local pubs for a meal three times. The food was good and the staff and all the locals were very friendly. We had some lovely walks around the area in the evenings, and also went out around and enjoyed looking at various parts of Lincolnshire during the day. The first couple of days was a bit wet, but still plenty to see and do. For the rest of the holiday the weather was perfect. My Wife and myself had a lovely break i really recommend this place it was great.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, despite the weather! Yes we are luck with having such good pubs (The Castle, and the Fox and hounds). And a few ‘gastro pubs’ not so far away (The Olive Branch, and Jackson Stops).

“Birthday weekend break :)”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2018

Decided to have a well-deserved break for my Birthday with hubby, and was pleasantly surprised when we got to the cottage, we were greeted with a lovely food hamper with lots of fresh goodies. Jacqui is warm and very welcoming, the cottage is beautiful and clean with all the amenities that you need. If you get a chance go to the restaurant The Olive Branch it was amazing with great food and cocktails. Had a good Sunday lunch at The Castle Pub...The locals are so friendly. We would definitely go back again. :)

Owner's reply: Fantastic thank you for your kind words it was great to be part of your birthday celebrations come back soon. Cheers Jacqui

“Perfectly wonderful place to stay.”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

From the welcome I received upon arrival, the unobtrusive but friendly service to the fond farewell, I felt like I had stayed with good friends. The cottage itself is wonderful. Quirky & luxurious. Nothing has been missed & my early mornings on the sun dappled patio were bliss. I intend to return.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review, we hope to see you again too! Regards, Mike & Jacqui

“Lovely, relaxing stay in a cosy little cottage”

Reviewed 24 Dec 2012

We had a lovely time at Glen Cottage. A gorgeous little cottage with all the mod cons, whilst remaining cosy and charming. Located in the little village of Castle Bytham, with a couple of lovely pubs within walking distance (5 minutes) we really enjoyed getting to know the local area. There was also plenty to see, just a short drive away, should you want to explore further afield. To be honest, we loved the cottage so much, that we took the opportunity to have a few relaxing days and cosy nights in with the fire on, and a movie, either in the cozy little lounge, or snuggled up in bed! Mike was extremely welcoming and friendly, and was on hand to answer any questions that we had. We really appreciated the little touches, such as a lovely hamper, complimentary wine, cheese, bread, milk and so on. With bathrobes, slippers and a luxurious bath in the bedroom, it really is a wonderful place to unwind.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your great review. It is much appreciated, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards, Mike and Jacqui
