Make a holiday rental homes or holiday cottages in Lincolnshire your home away from home

Lincolnshire is a county in the East of England that borders Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Yorkshire and nineteen metres of Northamptonshire! The county town is the city of Lincoln and other towns of significance include Grantham, Grimsby, Boston, Scunthorpe, Spalding, Stamford and Skegness.

Places to holiday in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire's coastal resorts and Wolds towns are popular holiday destinations and attract many families and surfers each year, which means there are numerous hotels and guest houses. These can work out expensive for a family and are somewhat restrictive on your planning, but staying in self-catering accommodation allows you the freedom to explore.

Holiday cottages in Skegness give you access to this popular resort as well as the neighbouring resorts of Chapel St Leonard's, Ingoldmells and Mablethorpe with their wide-ranging beaches, leisure activities and amusements. Caravan sites are popular on the Lincolnshire coast but they do not have that home from home feel that Lincolnshire seaside cottages have and space is more limited.

Fen's cottages close to Theddlethorpe nature reserve, Saltfleetby, Donna Nook and Gibraltar Point are popular with those interested in birdwatching and wildlife. Market town and country cottages in the Lincolnshire Wolds are popular with cyclists and walkers, especially twice a year at times of the Walking Festival. Grimsby, Lincoln and Hull have significant shopping facilities and are convenient from a holiday cottage.

Kitchen had every utensil required for cooking your own meals, and there is a washer drier. My husband our usual 'washer up', would have liked a dish washer, but this was just nit picking. There are several places in town in which to eat out plus, pubs and takeaways. Bedding and plenty of clean towels provided. Kevin himself is helpful and his neighbour friendly, so any problems could be sorted right away if needed. Hot tub a bonus, the children also loved this. We would all love to stay again.

On arrival Heather met us with the keys and gave us such an excellent introduction to the property. The Cottage was immaculate we had such a brilliant time that we all said we wish we had planned to stay longer. Overall as this review, I would highly recommend people stay here, the views are amazing and sooo restful. Thank you again Heather.

Wifi was a real bonus for our two children. All bedding and towels (for inside use) were included which was a nice touch. By chance I found out about the bedding being included before travelling but not so the towels which would have saved us valuable room in the car. The only thing we felt was missing was a chest of drawers in each bedroom. Not as close to the beach as we would have liked given 3 of us wanted to go bodyboarding but problem solved by jumping in the car and parking further up the coast, right next to the beach. We really appreciated it was away from the hustle and bustle of the many holiday sites to the south side of the village - near enough to enjoy if you wished to though as only a short ride away. Only reason we haven't given it 5 stars is because it wasn't as near to the beach as it appeared to be from the location map on the advert.
