Another relaxing break at Owl Cottage. Enjoyed an 8 mile run from Alford taking in Well and Ulceby, Swathes of white wild garlic in the woods and bluebells. Lovely walk incorparating Ailby Plantation, where an exotic Reeves pheasant was keeping guard of the orchids.  Grimsby fish and chips at South Ormsby was excellent. Do take cash though as no cards accepted. Great to come back for a relaxing time whilst enjoying the Spring flowers.

Cottage is excellent. Thankyou. We have had a lovely short break. The weather has been mostly fine. We have had some good walks at the coast since the local fields looked rather muddy. Can recommend Gilbraltar Point, Saltfleet and Donna Nook. The latter great if you like fast jets practising attacks!

We have had a lovely holiday staying at Owl Cottage. Barbara & Bill are so welcoming. We loved the welcoming chocolate cake and Lincolnshire Plum Bread. Lincolnshire has now become one of our favourite holiday destinations. It has everything we want - walks on the doorstep through the Linolnshire Wolds and breathtaking unspoilt beaches close by. Our favourite places were Gilbralter Point and Anderby Creek. The White Hart at Telford does an excellent roast and good real ale, together with a cosy open fire after a walk in the Wolds. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Everyone was a winner on our 1 week break: beach, castles, biking, beer etc what not to like about Lincolnshire and its people.  It was like going back in time to the 70’s before pound shops, Tesco plc, globalisation, Euroland and all that jazz, alas back to smelly old London and M25...we will be back to get our fix!

Great cottage.  Great weather.  Great walks (apart from some ploughed over footpaths).  Loved our chats with Stuart next door.  Thanks for everything, Barbara the scones were very welcome after a long drive.

We had a wonderful holiday. Cottage is a great base for walking and touring the area. If you get a chance visit Hubbards Hills (Louth) - really beautiful.
