There are many places to visit with the thriving market town of Newark being just 6 miles away which holds many events on its showground including regular international antique fairs that attracts buyers from all over the world. The local area has good country pubs for refreshment and food as well as being close to the city of Lincoln Stamford and Nottingham which is great for shopping and cricket. There are many great walks to enjoy including for pets straight from the door as well as cycle routes throughout the area.

    Cottage difficult for older people with severely sloping ceilings and very narrow spiral staircase. We were surprised to find NO information leaflets for ANY of the equipment - central heating, cooker, coffee-maker etc. First time in 25 cottages that has happened. Had to ask twice for the four dead light bulbs to be replaced. Owner very pleasant but hard to contact as mobile signal patchy for my phone. Cottage light and clean - beautiful scenery. Good pub - The Reindeer - in village. Nice bottle of wine as a welcome gift.

    Really nice place to get away to. Owner was lovely and really helpful as there was a storm when we were there which knocked the power out for our shower unit which we called her and was sorted within minutes. Hot tub was ace and we got there pretty late on our first day and we we straight into the hot tub in the late evening. The owners house does slightly overlook the back garden of the cottage but your left alone unless you need anything. Definitely will be going back!

    We had a lovely stay here o we the Bank holiday weekend. (Family of 4 with out 16year old son, 10 year old Daughter & our Springer Spaniel) kids & Pooch loved it. It's so relaxing & peaceful. B beautifully decorated with everything you need for general living. Newark is definitely worth a visit too, lovely river walk & a fantastic Market. We all loved it & would defiantly go back.

    A nice spot to stay close to the A1 with easy access from north and south. Hot tub wasn't filled up enough when we got there and this led to issues getting it refilled effectively putting it out of use for a couple of the nights. The owner could possibly have been a bit more affable about this and seemed a wee bit rude but had clearly had a tough week. The hot tub was overlooked by houses on both sides but no real issues regarding privacy. Quite a bit of the kitchen stuff wasn't exactly clean with a very temperamental dishwasher exacerbating the issue. There is absolutely no wifi here which isn't a bad thing! That said we'd recommend it.

    We had a 3 night stay at Merlin Lodge and whilst it was enjoyable, I wasn’t hugely impressed with the cottage, surroundings or facilities. The cleanliness of the cottage (particularly the downstairs ensuite and kitchen) left a lot to be desired, the dishwasher leaked when used, the rugs had clearly seen better days and the linen (bedclothes and towels) downstairs were very worn and used looking. My only other complaint would be that the dogs belonging to the main farm were incredibly noisy (barking aggressively every time we walked past and from 6.30am each morning) they also didn’t seem to keen on our dog being in the garden (not ideal for a dog friendly dwelling)!

    We spent a lovely quiet long weekend at Merlin's Lodge. It's a brilliant little place if you just want to get away from it all, switch off and enjoy some much needed peace and quiet. Both Newarke and Lincoln are a short car journey away which are beautiful places to visit. The lodge itself is decorated to a high standard and has all you need to help you enjoy your stay.

    This was our 3rd hot tub break this year and although the hot tub it's self was very big, I didn't think it fair to be requested not to go in it after 8.30am on day of departure :(, although the lodge its self looked lovely inside lovely furniture on closer inspection it was as clean, dirty cutlery in draw, dirty stained place mats, dust on bed frame, only two towels provided which wernt the biggest more needed when you need to shower before getting in hot tub and walking through the lodge, little things that people don't pack for couple nights such as hand soap, kitchen roll would be helpful.

    Lovely cottage with the bonus hot tub! Would definitely stay again.
