Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Josie and Iain,

We just wanted to write and tell you how much we enjoyed our recent stay at Byford Lodge.

When we arrived, we were delighted to find fresh flowers and a gift basket filled with local food items. The living space is nicely furnished and has HD TV and wi-fi. I appreciated the fully equipped kitchen, complete with herbs, spices, and oil (the little things one tends to forget about when self-catering). We particularly liked the master bathroom with the wonderful soaking tub and the skylight above it -such fun having a soak while looking at the stars! We were also happy to find that The Lodge is located so close to the town centre, yet is very quiet and private -and a lovely view down the garden. We love that it is filled with light and that you have put so much thoughtful attention to detail in making us comfortable. As a "hard to please" couple, we would totally recommend it.

Great break

  • 5 of 5

Great property in the centre of Louth ideal location to explore Lincolnshire

Cleethorpe is worth a visit and the five sail windmill and tea room at Alford.

We met Josie (owner) and she is very welcoming and made us feel at home, some really nice touches like the food hampers.

We chose the area after seeing the the pictures of the property and we weren't disappointed, it was very clean and welcoming. It was a great break, highly recommend and will visit again.

Beautiful, homely property - everything has been thought of.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property, really clean, with everything you need.... Toiletries, bath robes, even kitchen foil. For entertainment there is a large TV, blue ray player, plays talion - there's also a TV you can watch from the bath!

The owners were really helpful before we arrived and didn't bother us during our stay (been to some places where the owners spoilt it by always being around). There's a small garden which is lovely for an evening drink.

Really well situated for walking into Louth. There are lovely beaches and Lincoln not too far away. This was a property which was recommended to us and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone else.

Stylish, welcoming, comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

My sister an I spent a very relaxing few days at Byford Lodge. Well situated for all amenities of the town. Adjoined to owner's property but complete respect of privacy. Very comfortable - especially the bed and equipped with everything we needed. A welcome hamper with delicious bread and wine of our choice awaited us on arrival. There were ready cooked (and very yummy) meals for purchase in the freezer, if required; an extremely good idea. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation and would return to stay again if revisiting this area. Josie could not have been more accommodating.

From the Owner

We fell in love with Louth the first time we visited, with its unique range of shops, restaurants and pubs with great access to the countryside and sea side it is the perfect place to raise our family. We came up with the idea to extend and build the lodge in 2011 so that others could come and enjoy this special place for themselves. Thankfully we have been rewarded with lots of bookings and happy guests who return to us year after year. If you fancy a more rural retreat please check out our newly renovated holiday cottage in the heart of the Lincolnshire wolds Orford Farm Cottage Owners Direct Property ref: 8172142
