“actually 10 stars”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A beautiful cottage in a wonderful location with fabulous hosts. This cottage is a diamond! The location is amazing, its around half way up Steep Hill so it gives you a brilliant excuse to stop off at home (and that is exactly what it feels like) before you continue the challenge of the hill!

The cottage has everything you need to prepare a five course meal to making a snack. The beds are comfy and the quilts and bedding are immaculate - not a lumpy pillow in sight!

Charles met us at the cottage early so we were lucky enough to drop our bags (thank you to the last occupiers and Charles and Gillian for turning the cottage around so quickly) Charles gave us a brilliant guided tour then took my hubby back to our car which we had abandoned as the roads in Lincoln are fun..... he directed him to the cottage to do a bag drop then to the garage to park up, he even dropped him back even though it was only a really short walk (takes literally 2 minutes)

if you rent this beautiful cottage please look after it as Charles and Gillian clearly love it as much as you will!!!

Thank you so much for your review. We are really pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Well Cottage in particular your mum who we know was revisiting Lincoln for a very special reason. The cottage is as you say very well located for all of the attractions that Lincoln has to offer. The step stool issue has been resolved! On your next stay you will find a new stool in the kitchen. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to our Lincoln gem.

Reviewed 22 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a short break in Lincoln 10th & 11th August for his Birthday. I found 'Well Cottage' on trip adviser. I could tell from the reveiws, location & pictures that this would be perfect. It was perfect in evey way. I really want to keep it to myself. Perfect location. Pure luxury. Couldnt ask for more. We will be back as soon as we can. Thanks to Charles for making us so welcome.

“Outstanding. ”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Myself and my wife booked in to stay at well cottage for two day's 10/11 August 2017. On arrival at well cottage one of the owners Charles met us to show us around the cottage. Immediately it was clear how helpful and friendly Charles is . He gave us a tour around the cottage just to show us where everything is and also a tour around the extremely lovely private garden at the rear of the property. The garden is south facing so it is a lovely sunny patio / garden. We like to travel and visit new places as often as we can so over the years we have visited alot of places but for all those people who are reading this review I need to say that we have never had the pleasure to stop in a place so stunning and luxurious as well cottage. We have been to place's that say how wonderful the place is ect but actually isn't all it is made to sound or be. Any review that I put on trip advisor is always as honest as I can tel it . If you are looking to stop in a most elegant comfortable stunning cottage then Well cottage is for you. The owners are absolutely on the ball in everything they have done to this cottage. Every single attention to detail has been thought of here. Even down to a emergency mobile phone charger . The interior decoration is class throughout every room upstairs and down. The bathroom is luxurious done as a wet room style but also includes a Jacuzzi. The kitchen has everything you would need and is very modern and very classy. The kitchen leads out to the patio that has its own BBQ and also a brilliant outside heater. The cottage it's self is right in the middle of steep Hill which was voted best street of the year on two occasions so as you step out of Well cottage you step onto steep Hill give or take a few yards so depending if you want to go up or down the Hill the choice is yours. Which ever way you decide to go you will be walking to the many delights that the city of Lincoln has to offer so Well cottage is a brilliant base to set off from to explore. It was my Birthday on the 10th of August on the day we arrived and it was apriciated the bottle of proseco that Charles left for us. I could go on and on about our short stay at this amazing cottage so if you are thinking of booking a break then I 110% recommend Well cottage so please be ready to spoil yourself in the warmth of this lovely place. Our only complaint is we wish we would have been able to stay longer. If anyone who reads this enjoy a curry I would highly recommend the castle view indian that is situated directly at the back of Lincoln castle. You can walk through the castle grounds and exit at the back of the castle and you'll see it . Be advised to book though or you will stuggle to get a table. There are some fantastic restaurants bar's and pub's all around the city centre. So a very big thank you to Charles and Gillian for creating a dream place to stay in Lincoln. One thing for sure is we'll be back but next time it will be for longer. My birthday was made extra special spending it at Well cottage. chis & Sally. Derby.

“Immaculate, well-equipped cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A perfect cottage which suited all of our needs. Great central location in a surprisingly quiet spot. Everything within walking distance, no need for a car. We really enjoyed sitting in the back courtyard in the evening playing cards with the heater on! We'll definitely recommend Well Cottage to all our friends and family.

“Amazing cottage perfect city of Lincoln Location”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location of Well Cottage on Steep Hill within the Cathedral quarter of Lincoln is perfect! Well Cottage is perfect for all ages! The cottage is amazing! Promo images don't do it justice. Historic and modern, cosy and well equipped. Met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. Particularly the garden area is a terrace with outdoor heater, lovely furniture, a barbecue and is south facing! Great for relaxed evenings. Hosts were very welcoming. Welcome pack included 'Fizz' and lots of extras to make the stay comfortable. Beds were really 'comfy'. Sturdy, and firm mattresses (great for backs like mine!) Our 16 year old gave this cottage 10/10! We'll definitely return soon. Lincoln is well worth a visit!
