Very much enjoyed our stay at Candlelight Cottage situated in a nice village, very convenient for exploring Lincolnshire. Minor enquiries to the owner were sorted out immediately. Very quiet location

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city/town life ... A true retreat ... Within reach of tourists/nature lovers' attractions ... Incredibly beautiful and safe for our morning runs and walks... Cottage was equipped with everything one could possibly need ... Oops forgot to mention the champagne and chocolates awaiting our arrival!!!

“Lovely cottage, shame about cleanliness”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Arrived at cottage and immediate reaction was pleasant, milk, biscuits and flowers left for us. It was only when you looked closely at things that you noticed the dirt. The high window in the kitchen/living room looked as if it had been sprayed for Halloween. A vast amount of cobwebs along with dead flies, etc. filled the whole window. The ceiling was also covered with cobwebs in all the corners, and the top of the cooker extractor was covered in grease and dirt. Behind the sofa where the electric heater was the skirting board was black with dirt and cobwebs. It said in their instructions to leave the place as you found it. I wonder if that was the problem, that that was the only cleaning done. A nice place spoiled by lack of good housekeeping. deep clean required to bring it up to the supposed 4-star rating it was advertised as.

Thank you for taking the time to carry out this review, it is unfortunate that your concerns were not highlighted during your stay as I'm sure we could have quickly resolved them for you.
The cottage is 200 years old and the ceiling and window you mention require a ladder to reach them. Admitedly they have therefore not been dusted between every visit. This is the first time that any of our guests have ever been concerned about this or any element of the cottage cleanliness and we will now ensure that we give them more attention in the future.
Thank you again, I am pleased to see that you enjoyed all other elements of your short stay with us.

Four of us stayed in the cottage over a long weekend for a wedding.
The cottage was very comfortable and had everything needed for a home from home stay. The cottage is set in a lovely garden and nice village.
The cottage owners were amazing and ensured we had all we needed, and even went out of their way to help me get my phone back to me after I left it there!
We would highly recommend staying here!

I stayed in the cottage with two friends for a relaxing weekend away and it was the perfect spot for us to chill out. The cottage is small but perfectly formed - it has everything you would need and was lovely and warm on our cold November weekend. The owners very kindly took receipt of our online shoping order so we arrived on Friday evening to a fully-stocked fridge, plus they even left some yummy biscuits for us!

We didn't spend much time in the village, but did enjoy a lively Saturday night in the local pub, complete with live music. The cottage is very well-placed for easy day trips to Rutland Water and Stamford.

We would definitely recommend Candlelight Cottage for a small family or group of friends wanting a quiet break and would love to visit again in the summer - to test the BBQ!

Cottage was well-equipped,and very clean on arrival. Nice touches, biscuits, tea, coffee, 2 pts milk and lovely fresh flowers, even a ball for our dog to play with. Shower in the bathroom was great, very powerful. Lovely walks to do in the area, and not too far from Peterbourgh. Enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend Candlelight Cottage.
