John and Christele moved from Yorkshire to Lincolnshire twelve years ago. They fell in love with The Forge and completely restored the property in the quiet residential village of Hemswell. One of the very few villages with a maypole. Christele is a full time ceramic artist, and John is an engineer who enjoys doing aerobatics.
Christele purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Christele chose West Lindsey District
We chose The Forge in Hemswell because it offers the best of two worlds. On the one hand it is rural, tranquil and secluded yet within easy reach from major motorways and airports. ( M180/M18/A46/A1) (East Midlands/Doncaster-Sheffield/Humberside) On one side going East we can readily access the coast and the Lincolnshire Wolds on the other side going West, we can readily access the rest of the country. Kirton Lindsay only a few miles away offers nice village shops and amenities (butcher, baker, newsagent, small Coop, beautician, Indian restaurant...) with its own working windmill. Hemswell Antique Centre less than a mile away is a definite attraction. We have a dog and enjoy walks, the area has plenty of footpaths and bridleways. I used to cycle and the rural back roads are a delight. We love Lincoln, a quaint interesting pleasant town with a good range of entertainment from cultural to casual and good restaurants.

Had a most wonderful stay.
Had a lovely stay. John was so welcoming and Jasper the dog made our dog’s welcome too. Would love to come back again next year.
Everything was like home from home. Beautiful cottage and lovely village.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. John and Jasper loved meeting you and we are looking forward to seeing you again soon.
This was an excellent place. Clean, comfortable, well equipped set in a beautiful garden you could wander in. The village was lovely. Our welcome was warm and friendly. Highly recommend the Forge to anyone wanting to be in that area. A great stay.
Lovely Get Away
A lovely home, accompanied by lovely hosts (including Jasper the black lab).
We really enjoyed our stay, it was a lovely village and the house was beautiful - easy to dream it was my actual future home!
I would highly recommend coming and staying here.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a nice review. John and Jasper really enjoyed meeting all of you.

Peace and Quiet
We loved the accommodation, gardens and the location. It was the perfect base for our daily trips out to various other places including Lincoln and the antiques market only up the road. The house was clean and comfortable with a lovely flow throughout. John was warm and welcoming and Jasper the dog was such fun. We are going to book again for next year!
