The front garden includes a picket fenced section to provide for security for guests’ dogs. We have dogs ourselves and do our best to provide comfortable and secure accommodation for visiting dogs. A large proportion of the downstairs area has wipeable tiled floor. The living room has carpet – a bit of comfort for the older dog.

Three dogs are welcome, but please contact us if you would like to bring more.

Public footpath runs past the cottage – however it does not get a great deal of use.

Views of meadows, mature trees and grassland from the cottage.

The cottage is sited at the northerly end of Welton le marsh village. Being slightly elevated, the coast and wind farm can be seen from the upstairs windows.

The cottage is heated by an oil combi boiler, there is also a log burner in the living room.

Downstairs there is a large, L-shaped, well equipped kitchen/diner, cosy living room, boot room with large sink and storage, WC, utility room and the spacious conservatory which overlooks the rear garden.

There are patios with seating to the front and rear of the property. Barbacue available.

Upstairs are 3 bedrooms – 1 king with ensuite, 1 twin, 1 single – and a family bathroom.

The village itself is very attractive in all seasons and there are several quiet walks directly from the cottage. The village pub serves good food and is dog friendly.

The village is just over a mile from a main coastal route – you can join the A158 at Gunby corner and proceed towards Skegness and Ingoldmells. There are several dog friendly east coast beaches just a short drive (8 miles minimum) away. A further advantage of our location is that of being within easy reach of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
