This is the first time we have stayed in The House but our second visit to Lincoln Retreat. The first time we stayed in The lodge, which is a beautiful place (see other review) The lodge and the house can be opened up to link together.
The location is perfect. Very peaceful, but just a 5-10min drive from the centre of Lincoln. Set in beautiful countryside fields next to water ways and Boultham Mere lake. With wild deer running around outside.
The house is just as well appointed as the lodge, But with a lot more space, separate lounge and a county kitchen with a large dinning table. A big bathroom with corner bath and walk-in shower. It has all the mod cons you need,Big screen TV, DVD, SKY, WIFI, Radio, Washer/dryer ect,ect. A real home from home.
And there is of course the lovey hot hub! Set in its own little building with star lights above and led lights in the tub. Great fun for the kids, very relaxing for the adults.
Nothing is to much trouble for the owner Debbie. She is a genuine people person..... With a slight technical problem with one of the sports channels, meaning we might miss the football. Debbie came to the rescue, opening up another room for us (that is soon to be integrated into the main house) That has a massive TV, double bed and settee. On top of this, with bringing us drinks and chocolate for the kids while we watched the football, she really does go above and beyond.
...There is also a 1 bed cottage at Lincoln Retreat what we had a peep into before we left, it is a stunning little building with its own private patio....
With further works planed for Lincoln Retreat this place is just going to get better and better...,As you might of guested we will definitely be returning to Lincoln Retreat when we next visit Lincoln.
I could run out of positives to say about this rental. What helped was the fantastically entertaining, friendly and informative greeting by the host/owner Debbie. Outside it looks like a country house and the inside of the house and the grounds have the same countryside character yet the modern facilities provided like sky and wifi, not forgetting the hot tub, patio areas and balcony and very comfy large leather sofas make it an excellent place to stay for couples, families friend gatherings or whatever. The lane.drive into the property was in poor condition but it was January and some heavy weather had taken its toll on the country lane. Like most places, summer would make it an excellent place for walking by canals and the like although there were people out walking the dogs(which you can bring to stay I believe) in some rather low temperatures, brave people! Having said that it is very close to the town centre though as well by either a short walk(conditions permitting) or vehicle. Debbie gave us a lift into town and included a short mini tour and the taxi back later that evening was exactly a non bank breaking fiver. Not a totally perfect place to stay....but close. Not the cheapest but would highly recommended
We came to the lodge to have some girls time and celebrate my birthday. Debbie is a great gal nothing is too much trouble it's a beautiful lodge, great attention to detail within every room, plus added touches of luxury making it feel a personal 5* stay! With spectacular Lincolnshire views from every window, luxury and privacy in an intimate setting yet so close to the city centre. It's a fabulous gem of a retreat we are so pleased to have discovered it and will be returning and recommending to everyone!!! Thank you soo much
Stayed here as a birthday surprise from
my wife and it was excellent.
We stayed in the cottage and the place was spotless and really nicely decorated. The owner came and showed us around when we arrived and was really welcoming.
They had even put a bottle of champagne in the cottage for free which was a really nice touch.
The hot tub was fantastic and we had brilliant weather the weekend we were there. Will definitely be back soon
Wanted some where local but a refreshing break from every day routine and wow I was not disappointed. This place is beautiful !! Rooms was all lovely and clean. Couldn't get enough of the hot tub. Will defiantly be coming back.
