If you’re looking to book a romantic trip with your loved one, you can’t go far wrong with this 18th-century cottage in Lincolnshire. With its own private hot tub and colourful decor, it’s sure to leave you feeling relaxed and happy. There’s space for two people and two dogs, making this beautiful little bolthole perfect for if you want to take your pets on holiday too. There’s plenty to do for days out, be it discovering Lincoln, a culturally interesting city with lots of dog-friendly cafes and pubs, or walking in one of the nature reserves nearby.

This former toll house is decorated in a colourful, homely style, with plenty of plants and nature-inspired artwork. Traditional features such as original wooden ceiling beams and barn-style doors add to the farmhouse feel. The cosy lounge is a lovely place to spend quality time with your partner and pets, perhaps watching something on the TV as you rub the dogs’ bellies – there never seems to be enough time for this at home. In the garden, soak in the hot tub while Mork & Mindy chase flies on the grass nearby.

The house is on a quiet country road with a wildlife pond and an abundance of footpaths nearby where you can take the hounds for their morning walks. You’re in luck if you’re into planes – at Sturgate Airfield (0.5 miles), originally built for WW2, you can see rare aircraft. The Lincolnshire Wolds (20.5 miles) is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with woodlands, grasslands and rolling hills for you to explore – the dogs will love being let off their leads to investigate all the unfamiliar scents and sights.

A wonderful little cottage. Well designed for two people and our dog.

A great location, lots to do locally and of course, it was great to finish off the day in the hot tub. Hide
