Long Acres Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Long Acres is a comfortable Lincolnshire cottage set in a quiet rural position on the outskirts of Old Leake village. This well equipped detached modern bungalow offers accommodation with modern furnishings and fittings including a cosy sitting room, two relaxing bedrooms, and a well proportioned fitted kitchen with dining area and patio doors opening out onto a large conservatory with comfy sofas. There is also an enclosed garden with lawn and shrubs and a gravel patio area with table and chairs. Long Acres occupies a fine location ideally located for accessing the coast and surrounding area.

Area
The peaceful South Lincolnshire village of Old Leake sits in attractive countryside and offers a shop, three pubs, a Post Office, sports field and a children's playground. The village nestles on the edge of the Fens and its bulb fields and windmill sails have earned it the name of the 'Holland of England' - Trader Windmill, a working mill now run by English Heritage, can be seen four miles away in Sibsey. The market town of Spilsby is nine miles away, and here visitors can find a good selection of shops, restaurants and inns. The wonderful coastline, Fens and rolling hills of the Wolds offer walking and cycling opportunities. Many attractions and interesting destinations can be accessed from Old Leake, including the former WWII airfield at East Kirkby which is now an Aviation Heritage centre; the bustling market town of Boston; the seaside resort of Skegness and the antique lover's paradise of Horncastle.

Region
From rolling countryside to historic cathedral cities and traditional seaside resorts, Lincolnshire offers a peaceful alternative to the discerning holidaymaker.

Mr Wilding
January 2016
The owners were very friendly and helpful. The place was very clean and the general standard high. I would stay there again.
Mr Harmer

The cottage is lovely, owners were friendly and the facilities good. Ideally located for visits to Boston, Skegness and King's Lynn. Lovely garden with table and chairs. Conservatory is huge with comfy furniture.
Mrs Peek
April 2014
The place was a perfect base to explore the area. It was extremely well cared for. The owners were friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. The 'welcome' Easter egg was a lovely touch. The accommodation is excellent; it looks small from the outside but is exceptionally spacious inside. Great conservatory. The plus for us was that we were able to bring our dogs and the site is adults only, hence peaceful!

Lovely place to stay, very peaceful, a really lovely place to chill out. This was a wonderful Christmas stay. The place was spotless when I arrived. I will definitely go back. A lovely stay.
Mr Francis

This was the first time that we have visited the area, and we enjoyed it very much. The cottage was excellent and very well maintained. We expect to go back again, God willing.
Mrs Campbell
April 2014
The accommodation was absolutely faultless and owners extremely helpful. We had a very comfortable week and would love to have stayed longer. There are so many good eating places nearby and lots to see. We travelled as far as East Kirkby Aviation Centre and RAF Coningsby. We were fortunate enough to see so many daffodils in full bloom everywhere. Thoroughly recommend.

A beautifully kept bungalow, which was very comfortable and warm. Using the conservatory was a bonus. A real home from home. We loved everything!
Mrs Armour

Very well situated for travelling around Lincolnshire. Owners were very nice, and nothing to much trouble. Enjoyed sitting in the conservatory.
Mr Carpenter

A very good location for getting around. This was our first holiday with a dog and the site was ideal for dog walking. Weather perfect. One of our best holidays.
Mr Brown
May 2013
The biggest conservatory we have ever seen let alone stayed in - it was great!
Mrs Williams
November 2012
The owners bent over backwards to make us very welcome. We had a lovely week, the accommodation was superb. We have sometimes found the mattresses and sofa not very comfortable but this certainly was not the case at Long Acres. Very secure garden and our dogs especially enjoyed the park.
Mrs Spendlove
August 2012
The welcome by the owners was very nice and friendly. The bungalow was very homely, I would love to go again. There were plenty of towns and countryside to access from where the bungalow is situated. Myself, daughter, granddaughter and dog had a great time and would recommend going for a visit.
Mrs Last
July 2011
Very quiet, owners friendly and helpful. Accommodation very comfortable - like a home from home.
Mr Axford
July 2011
The garden was good for the dog - fully enclosed. Sykes booking staff were very helpful and friendly.
Mrs Cornwall
August 2011
Quiet location. No disturbance from the camp site. No intrusion from the owners. There were information brochures to peruse. Spacious and relaxing inside. We particularly enjoyed the sun room - even though the weather was not all that warm. Altogether a very enjoyable holiday and a lovely place to stay.
Mr Vasse
November 2010
I really liked the bungalow. Plenty of room and nice and warm. The area was quiet and peaceful and I could relax. I managed to do some walking and local sight-seeing. The owners were very nice. Boston has a lot of things going on and I managed to visit Lincoln and Skegness. I came to get away from everything for a few weeks and enjoyed the experience.
Mr Leach
July 2013
The accommodation was excellent, lovely and clean. It was nice and peaceful; a great relaxing holiday. I would definitely recommend Long Acres as a great place for a holiday. Hope to visit again in the future.

The holiday was just what I needed, time to relax and unwind. The cottage was lovely and peacefully situated and the owners were friendly and helpful.
Mr Dorow
March 2010
The railway did not disturb us at all! Handy for East Kirkby Air Museum and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby. Boston Stump Tower worth the climb.
Mr Postle
April 2010
The bungalow was lovely, spacious and comfortable. Lovely large and pleasant conservatory and garden.
Mr Saunders
May 2010
We liked the fact that the cottage was spacious and there was plenty of room for us with a lovely garden to watch all the wildlife in.
Mrs McCarron
February 2010
The holiday property owners made us feel so welcome, they are a lovely couple. The accommodation was excellent, warm, clean, really nice inside. They had thought of everything to make the holiday home from home. The dog was also made welcome and he made himself at home too.
Mr Kempe

Only once (in the week) heard a train in distance. The bungalow is immaculate all through. 'The Castle' A52 - good food.
Mr Mrs Weaver

It was a good location to go to the Lincoln Christmas market and to go to the coast.
Mrs Green
November 2009
Sykes were very very helpful. We booked at the last minute and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. I have used Sykes Cottages in the past and they would definitely be my first choice again. The accommodation and the owners were excellent.

We have at least 3 holidays each year with our two dogs and always rent cottages. This is amongst the best. Warm, clean, modern, fabulous conservatory too. Weather wasn't that good, so having somewhere like this to return to was brilliant. Highly recommend.
Mr O'Dell
August 2009
The owners were very friendly. Property is ideal for getting away from it all but close enough to get to the tourist areas. Everything excellent!
Mr Hart
August 2009
The property was very well situated for all the attractions that we wanted to see. The nearest shops are some 2-3 miles away, this gave me a good excuse to cycle to get newspapers instead of a 5 minute drive in the car.
Mr Turner
September 2009
The cottage was excellent, clean and very comfortable. The pubs were within a reasonable distance and some provided excellent food at a reasonable cost. Lots of villages within easy reach and Skegness 15miles. Several National Trust properties and landscapes close by.
Mr Rayner
September 2009
A very well presented accommodation, giving a comfortable stay. All your needs available in the property.
Mrs Webster
September 2009
The cottage is very spacious for a bungalow, with a large conservatory. You could enjoy the 'hustle and bustle' of Skegness a few miles up the coast. Some nice quiet beaches with toilets and free parking!
Mr Mrs Kerr
September 2009
Peace and quiet!
Mrs Holmes
October 2009
Very good for traveling to local spots We were made to feel very welcome
Mrs Dibble
April 2010
There was really nice conservatory which we used a lot. The people who ran the property were very welcoming and very helpful if we had any problems. It was a delightful peaceful place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Fairly easy to find, very impressed with accommodation. although the garden was enclosed it was not dog proof. Location ideal for visiting coast and countryside. plenty of good dog friendly pubs locally. As weather was fantastic so was everything else. This was our first holiday with our recently rescued dog. we will definitely do it again.

The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable warm (even in the winter!) Everything you need is there. Kitchen very well equipped. Location beautiful with many attractions in the area. Our hosts were very welcoming and couldn't be more helpful, Will definitely recommend this lovely cottage to anyone who likes peace and quiet, but near enough to all airforce museums, country houses and quaint villages, but still close to main towns . Thanks a lot for a beautiful holiday. .

Cottage was tidy, clean and easily accessible. The owners were friendly and helpful. Location was fairly central and we were able to access many places and attractions fairly easy. We would quite happily return to Long acres for another holiday.

From the moment we arrived it just worked for us. The conservatory allows for a quiet place to read and think(or escape) The walk down to the pub is not an inconvenience, it's part of the experience. A great week was had by everyone.
