Excellently situated accommodation with secure parking near the centre of the Old Town. Very clean, comfy Super King bed, great bathroom. A very enjoyable stay, we have already re-booked!
We loved the house, very contemporary and a litle quirky in a good way !
So close to Bailgate, the Cathedral, Castle and the Steep Hill attractions.
Cuthberts Yard is a new development in an older area, very quiet and secure and great to have an allocated parking space right outside.
The fixtures and fittings in the house were excellent as was the bedding and towels.
It was very useful to have instruction manuals for all the major electrical items.
We started with exploring Lincoln and also went out to visit RAF Scampton Heritage Centre and the new Bomber Command HQ on the other side of Lincoln. Visited Woodhall Spa, a lovely traditional town with more WW2 Bomber connections and had a beautiful lunch at "The Tea House in the Woods" close to the famous "Kinema in the Woods".
All in all we had a great time from begining to end.
Thank you Colin and Astrid for your prompt response to emails and for letting us stay at your amazing house.
Very good accommodation for 2 in a super location for castle and cathedral. Extremely comfortable super king bed on top floor. Clean kitchen and bathrooms. Wifi good and reliable. The Beehive certainly offers an experience of living in a contemporary, city centre, modern build. Great to have parking for one car.
Disappointing to arrive to a chilly house -- thermostats set to 15 degrees is really too low for January - and to a meagre welcome pack with "use by 2016" coffee. In my experience fresh milk, bread, jam and eggs are, these days, the very basics to leave for arriving guests. That said the house warmed up quite quickly and there is a small corner shop a stone's throw away.
Were I to make any recommendations, it would be to consider replacing the hotch potch of cutlery, the 3 tiny and tinny saucepans and the incredibly small fridge / freezer. They let down make what is a very well equipped kitchen. Have you considered having an under counter larder fridge in kitchen and a small freezer at bottom of stairs?
All in all we enjoyed a happy, stress-free stay at The Beehive in stormy, wintry conditions and loved exploring the wonderful city of Lincoln.... maybe next time we'll have warm sun, not rain, rain, rain.
Second time we have stayed at the Beehive and were not disappointed one bit. This house is in a prime location for the Cathedral, Castle and the City centre. We stayed at the Beehive whilst the Lincoln Christmas market was on which made our visit even more enjoyable. Every thing about this house helps to make your stay, a stress free break. Highly recommended and hope to visit again sometime next year.
