“Superb Location”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here for a week with two friends, it couldn't have been more suitable: the location was super allowing us to access Lincoln's sites and a number of good eateries; and the place was extremely comfortable and clean having two bedrooms, a very modern bathroom, comfy lounge, well equipped kitchen and the added bonus of a patio that was a sun trap. One of my friends utilised the blow up bed and found it very comfortable. Wi-Fi was excellent. Be aware that the stairs are steep but three mature adults managed them with care.
My only bugbear was the garage, even though I was told it could take a large vehicle, it really couldn't, the approach angle for entry and width made it hard to access (I am a very experienced driver with many years and different types of vehicles), I personally would give it a miss unless driving a very small car or bike.

“Very comfortable house close to the main tourist sites”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The house was very clean and comfortable and on a quiet traffic-free street. It was well-placed to visit the Castle, Cathedral and shops on Steep Hill. The accommodation was as described and the administration of the booking highly efficient. Lots of nice little extra touches such as fruit/basic foodstuffs and shampoo etc. Use of a garage was a big plus. The security pad - where each guest booking chooses their own security code was useful - no keys to lose, easy to remember code and guests could split up and enter the cottage as it suited them.

“Great cottage in convenient location”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Surprisingly spacious for a two bedroom end property. Nicely decorated and equipped. Especially liked the garden, a real bonus given the central location, as was the garage. We were lucky to be in Lincoln for their 1940s weekend, but this did mean some late night /early morning revellers being quite lively in the streets......

“Weekend in Lincoln”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in April 2014

This is a great cottage in the centre of the old area of Lincoln. Everything is within a short walk. Great restaurants and bars + the castle and cathedral.
The cottage is finished to a very high standard and also has a private courtyard area at the rear for BBQ's etc.
Highly recommend this cottage for a stay in Lincoln.

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed at Well Cottage with a friend not knowing Lincoln at all. Turned out it was a wise choice - perfect location (quiet but at the same time 2 minutes walk from the Cathedral), excellent facilities, lovely cottage, cycle-friendly, and parking provided. Can't really add much more to reviews already given. Highly recommended!

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We visited Well Cottage early March this year and had a fantastic break. The cottage was clean, comfortable and welcoming and was a real home from home and the key code entry is a fantastic idea. We travelled by train to Lincoln and enjoyed the pleasant ten minute or so walk to the cottage at a very leisurely pace. The location of the cottage is superb, everything is on the doorstep yet Well Lane is really quiet and has an almost village like feel. We stayed two nights at the cottage, and although the kitchen was extremely well equipped, we only used the kettle and sink as we ate our for all meals - and never visited the same place twice! The choice of restaurant, bar, café, deli and bistro is fantastic! We visited the wharf, explored the old part of Lincoln and did the roof tour of the cathedral which is really worth doing if you can, but sadly we couldn't visit the castle as it was closed to the public due to work being carried in preparation for the return of the Magna Carta in April. We really did enjoy the cottage and Lincoln and look forward to returning again. Highly recommended.
