We have just had a 2 night stay at River Nene Cottages. Along with our son and his family we booked both 4 bed cottages and they were ideal. Very spacious and comfortable. Lots of hot water for the big showers, lovely large towels, comfy beds and well equipped kitchen for catering, if required!
Gorgeous gardens with river frontage. There was also a swimming pool but unfortunately the British weather was cold and rainy when we were there!
Close to the A1, which was good but it was very quiet - no traffic noise.
Can also recommend the Falcon Inn in Fotheringhay for dinner, great food.
Would happily recommend these cottages. We hope to return before too long!
We spent two weeks here and had a fab time! It was ideal location and the property had everything we needed.
We stayed at Barley Cottage because it is handy if you want to visit Stamford and Burghley House and not stay in town. Stephen and Philip couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly and as dog loving as we are (or nearly!). The cottage is small, but beautifully done up, if a little dark. The beds are comfortable, the cottage clean and a plentiful supply of hot water. The letting comes with access to a lovely garden, next to a church by a really pretty river and there is easy access to public footpaths for dog walking and leg stretching. The only draw back is that the cottage is only a few hundred yards from the A1 and therefore there was a lot of traffic noise. This should not have come as a surprise to me as it is clear from the map where the cottage is located, I just hadn't thought it through........so my fault. So, in summary, if you want a handy jumping off spot for the fabulous Burghley House and Stamford that is dog friendly, prettily situated, with charming hosts then this is the place for you. If you want somewhere quiet, maybe not
My colleagues and I stayed here on a work trip and after a 15 hour work day we arrived to a warm welcome from the guys. Went for a tour of the lovely grounds and took a much needed dip in the pool! All beds were incredibly comfy and we slept like babies ready for another big work day the next day. Water pressure was lush! Cottages were super cute! Will definitely be back if we work in the area again!
It was exactly what we needed to break from a hectic work week! Xoxo George
Most beautiful cottage, equipped to the highest standard, with everything you needed, even a cocktail shaker.
Owners were very accommodating.
Would love to visit again and perhaps stay longer.
We have just spent a short weekend at Barley cottage with our teenage sons. It was blissful! Very comfortable, every detail had been thought of (including lovely towels, comfy beds and soap everywhere - not the norm in rental cottages).
The location is quiet, charming and easily accessible and we adored our walk down by the river. Stephen went out of his way to accommodate our every need. Thank you. We will be back!
