Just enjoyed a wonderfull week at Well Cottage with a friend. The location is superb. I awoke one morning to the chimes of the cathedral in such a comfy bed, the cottage is calm relaxed with modern facilicites and a lovely open gas fire. Charles was a fantastic host, from the welcome pack and advice throughout our stay to help us make the most of our holiday. Lincoln is a beautifull interesting city, and Well Cottage is a great home to visit it from.

This cottage is so homely and a wonderful location to go anywhere in Lincoln. Charles the owner was so kind and helpful and left us enough coffee, teabags and sugar to last all weekend. The garage was great too. We went to the Lincoln Christmas Market and that was a great experience. We also saw the snow both there and when we got home. I would recommend this cosy cottage to anyone visiting Lincoln. I would give it a score of 10.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Linda and Bert for a lovely review on our Well Cottage. We are pleased that you enjoyed our extras, and the car is a great asset for our guest - no added parking cost. Thank you for the 10 out of 10 vote it really is appreciated. See you next time.

“Perfect little hideaway”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2017

This was our first visit to Lincoln and we could not have found a better cottage. Situated as it is off Steep Hill it is in the perfect location to explore the Cathedral Quarter. The cottage is equipped and presented to the very highest standard many thoughtful touches meaning that you want for nothing. Finally I must also mention the warm and friendly welcome from Charles on our arrival, a perfect host!

Owner's reply: Thank you Tony and Mandy for a lovely review. The cottage is well placed for all that Lincoln has to offer without the need for a car and to explore on foot at an easy pace. We are really pleased that you found the cottage facilities were everything that you needed. We look forward to welcoming you both back to our Lincoln gem.

“What a gem of a place”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2017

WOW! Fantastic place to stay. From the moment we arrived Charles was there to help us to unload and show us to the secure parking just round the corner. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was so welcoming in every aspect and it seemed that every attention to detail was taken care of. We had such a wonderful stay and the cottage was so convenient to the Cathedral quarter and bailgate where you can shop, dine or just wander and take in the ambience of the place. The cottage is so well equipped to all needs apart from one little thing! If you're short it could do with a step stool to reach the top shelves in the kitchen but we were fortunate to have my very tall nephew to to the honours! We will definitely be returning soon. Thank you Charles for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review. We are really pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Well Cottage in particular your mum who we know was revisiting Lincoln for a very special reason. The cottage is as you say very well located for all of the attractions that Lincoln has to offer. The step stool issue has been resolved! On your next stay you will find a new stool in the kitchen. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to our Lincoln gem.

“Shhh. It's our secret!”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2017

We really don't want to tell anyone how wonderful this lovely cottage is and we really don't want to share how perfect its location is to Steep Hill, the castle and cathedral. And we'd really like to keep the extra little touches that Charles and Gillian provided such as a bottle of fizz, provisions in the fridge and toiletries, a secret as we want to be able to return whenever we want. So please read this review but don't share it and should you check to see if the week or weekend you want to book is available, I'm sure you'll find it's booked already, by us! A big thank you to Charles and Gillian for making Well Cottage our welcome haven.

Owner's reply: Thank you Andrea for you wonderful review, and your words speak volumes of the superb location of Well Cottage. We look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future but your secret is out!
