“Best place I stayed in last 12 months”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

IThis was a lovely surprise to start with as it was a gift but the cottage itself also was a pleasant surprise. very clean and it is equipt with everything you may need. I spent the last weekend with my two dogs there and all 3 of us had an amazing time.

The cottage is set in beautiful surroundings - riverside location & country fields all around in a village hamlet.

Stephen and Phil are welcoming and somehow they make you feel like you are at home. Warm & cozy cottage. We'll be back.

Thank you

Atri, Lucie and Scarlett

“Quintessential English country accommodation, tasteful decor, fabulous hosts!”
Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

It was like Enid Blyton's 'Famous Five Escape The Big Smoke'. Myself & 4 friends escaped for a relaxing weekend, which was an easy run up the A1 from London, taking just over an hour. We hired Yew Tree Cottage and Coach Cottage, both sympathetically restored to a high standard, with quality finishes and tasteful decor. We were greeted by our wonderful hosts - Stephen and Phil - and were made to feel extremely welcome and at home. We enjoyed a country walk next to the river, which runs along the bottom of the stunning garden of the main house. We are already planning our return trip in the summer. Fabulous accommodation, fabulous hosts! X

What a beautiful cottage in an incredibly picturesque setting! Stephen and Phil, our friendly hosts, couldn't have made us feel more welcome, with thoughtful touches wherever we looked. Will be returning to this little piece of paradise very soon ...

“Lovely getaway”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a lovely stay in Yew Tree Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and very beautifully decorated, and in a gorgeous, quiet village, right on the river. The surrounding area is also very beautiful with lots of pretty villages and towns nearby. The hosts are super friendly and accommodating, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thanks Philip and Stephen!

“Secluded and luxurious cottage”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This gem of a cottage is safely tucked away on the banks of the river with walking for miles and all right off the A1, 8 miles from Stamford, It is a lovely place to come home that the end of a day exploring and a great place to just "chill" with a great host who lives next door and has your every need met
