What Past Guests Are Saying
A perfect place that has everything when you're away from home.
I had to stay for a month in Lincoln because of work. My family (my wife and two daughters (age 1.5 and 4 years)) came with me for the first half of the month, so I was looking for something that is suitable for a family style semi long-term stay. I found this house and contacted the owner by e-mail and phone. He is a really nice, helpful and flexible person. I had many questions related to the stay of my small children and he answered everything patiently and in detail.
The place is perfect for families with small children, since it has multiple rooms, a small foldable baby bed and the owner even provided baby linens for us. There are also some games and children books in the house. Since the house has two floors there is also a mobile gate that can be installed in front of the stairs to prevent your children from climbing and falling off.
The house is very clean, and it has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The kitchen is fully equipped (microwave oven, stove, washing machine, dishwasher, all kinds of other appliances) and there is also a dryer in the backyard in a small, separate room.
There is a living room and a dining room and the kitchen on the ground floor, and two bedrooms (one with a single bed and one with a double bed) and the bathroom on the upper floor.
The Wi-Fi broadband internet access and the TV service are also very good quality.
The neighbourhood is nice, the house is surrounded by the same kind of terraced houses. Fairfield street is a little bit steep, but the house is just at the beginning of the street, so it is not a problem.
The city centre, the railway station and the sights are close (15-20 minutes walk) and there is a bus station 2 minutes walk from the house.
I recommend the house with all my heart, since it is a lovely place with a very nice owner. Even the neighbour lady is a lovely person. I wish I could have stayed longer!
