Cliff Cottage is ideal for getting together with family or friends. It is perfectly situated on farm land well away from the main road thus ensuring a peaceful holiday. Lincoln is very close and we would suggest using the park and ride which is about 10 minutes away. However, it doesn't operate on a Sunday. The Cathedral and the Castle are a must see (a joint ticket saves money). If you love history we also highly recommend a visit to Gainsborough Old Hall (English Heritage). If you're looking for somewhere to dine out we suggest you try the Pyewipe Inn in Saxilby. The food is amazing and very reasonably priced. It is situated alongside the Fossdyke canal and after dinner you can walk off some of the calories by taking a stroll along the canal to the Brayford Wharf in Lincoln. Although Cliff Cottage sleeps 10 in 5 bedrooms it would be a little 'cosy' with 10 adults in the lounge. We were a party of 6 and we had ample space. On a note of caution, we found the flooring throughout the downstairs to be very slippery. On several occasions we nearly fell over when stepping off the stairs onto the floor in the hall - even in bare feet. Some reviews have said that the cottage is hard to find and that their sat nav took them to the wrong place. Kate's instructions are perfect and it you follow them the cottage is in fact very easy to find.
The house is beautifully presented and there were some lovely touches - candles dotted around, vases of flowers, bathrobes and slippers. It was clean, very nicely decorated and welcoming. The grounds of the property are also beautiful. Jo, the owner, can't do enough to help. She was delightful. This is a peaceful and idyllic setting in the countryside. Well worth a visit,
