Idyllic Grade 2* listed rural limestone cottage in grounds of a lodge to Burton Hall, close to historic cathedral city of Lincoln. Set in 1.8 acres of mature woodland grounds. Wood-burning stove and seasoned logs included; well equipped kitchen.
This is a tastefully refurbished estate worker's cottage and stores, built of local limestone. It is situated in the grounds of, and completely separate from, Dunster Lodge, which was built in 1868 as a lodge for Burton Hall. All buildings including the cottage are Grade 2* listed.
The cottage is fully equipped with a modern kitchen and appliances (including washer, dishwasher, four ring gas hob, built-under oven and extractor fan), set at one end of the living area. There are plenty of pots and pans, utensils and crockery. Coffee making equipment includes Nespresso machine (with a few capsules!), and Mocha express machines.
There is a drop-leaf table and four folding chairs in addition to two other wooden dining chairs.
The other part of the living area has comfortable seating, television and DVD player and wood-burning stove.
In addition to a comfortable double bedroom (Note: the bed is 4 feet wide), there is a "corridor" bedroom with a single bed.
Modern shower-room with WC and wash basin, heated towel rail and additional wall heater.
Heating is by wood-burning stove (seasoned logs included) and each room has independent thermostatic electric wall heaters. Hot water via immersion heater. No additional charge for electricity.
Guests have a completely independent cottage and access to the 1.8 acres of grounds. There are some beehives, visible from the cottage. Ample parking beside cottage, near stables (no horses)
