Enjoy a riverside escape at this cosy retreat in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside, providing a peaceful get away from it all to all those who are lucky enough to visit.

This tranquil escape nestles beside the River Glen in the hamlet of Surfleet Seas End, where rivers Glen and Welland meet to flow into The Wash. The nearby market town of Spalding boasts a thriving theatre, range of shops, railway, bus station, and many local attractions. A little further afield is the historic town of Stamford, famed for its part in the films, Pride and Prejudice, Middlemarch and The Da Vinci Code and is home to the famous Burghley Park Horse Trials. Boston, from which the Pilgrim Fathers sailed, is slightly further afield, as is Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle with its museum displaying the Magna Carta. Grimsthorpe Castle, Woodhall Spa Dambusters Museum, and the Norfolk coast, are only a few of many other popular destinations.

Approaching the entrance to the cottage through the magical waterside garden, you’ll find French doors welcoming you into a light and airy sun room, so pop off your shoes and enjoy the underfloor heating. This room provides a comfy day bed, with lots of windows giving views over the garden to the river, so you can enjoy the outside even on rainy days. The lounge/diner is inviting, light the wood burner and curl up on the sofa to relax with a good book, pop on the TV or have fun with some classic board games. Enjoy a meal with your loved one in the dining area, overlooking the pretty front garden. Following on, the quaint galley kitchen has everything you need to rustle up a special dinner, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and USB port.. The double bedroom is spacious and perfectly situated to enjoy river views from the comfort of your bed. Completing the property is the bright, delightful bathroom, offering a bath, separate shower and WC.

Outside, the back garden features a raised decked area with seating to enjoy dining alfresco. A small lawn leads to the river bank with beautiful weeping willows and benches to sit and enjoy the peace. There is off-road parking for two cars, and an outhouse with washing machine, tumble dryer and space to store bicycles if needed.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet location. Perfect for getting away from everything and recharging. The sun room is a great place to relax and read. The under floor heating in the kitchen, bathroom and sun room was a treat. Look forward to visiting again in the future.

Lovely quirky cottage in a beautiful situation. Very peaceful & relaxing with walks & bike rides from the door. Wonderful outlook to the rear along the river. Comfortable & cosy but could do with a slightly bigger TV & a few more utensils for the kitchen. Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Storybrooke Cottage is clean, very comfortable and extremely well appointed. It is located at the end of a quiet river, with good fishing. There is easy access to riverside walks and it's just a short drive to local shops and attractions. The owners, David and Sue could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We had a very happy week there.
