About Sandes by Water

Sandes by Water is perfect for families and friends who like to spread out and enjoy their own space, yet still spend time socialising with each other. Four double bedrooms comfortably sleep eight guests, with a sofa bed providing the option to accommodate an extra person if required.

The cottage is 10 meters away from a large fresh water lake for the sole use of the cottage residents. This lake is stocked with both mirror and common carp, beam and common Rudd. Along with the main pier there are two jetties as well as various maintained bank areas for casting from.

The house sits on five private acres in the village of Goxhill, just south of the beautiful Humber Estuary in North Lincolnshire, close to a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Ramblers and cyclists love this area for the variety of excellent routes that lead through the beautiful countryside, and there are also good pubs for a meal out within a mile or two from the property. Goxhill is a friendly village with a train station, Co-op grocery shop and, around a mile from the cottage, Shawbriggs Farm Shop. Five miles away, Barton-on-Humber has more amenities including independent shops, cafes, takeaways and a good range of pubs. There is a nature reserve which attracts birdwatchers and a leisure centre with gym, pool, badminton etc.

Barton-on-Humber is best known for the incredible suspension bridge which spans the width of the Humber. Choose a clear day and walk across it to enjoy some of the best views in Lincolnshire. There is free car parking and a nature trails on the Barton side with the country park on the North side to visit, as well as some lovely walks along the foreshore at Hessle.

The seaside resort of Cleethorpes is around half an hour’s drive, or you can catch the train directly from Goxhill. Cleethorpes is a fun day out for the whole family, with a vintage steam railway, country park, boating lake and children’s play area as well as the flat expanse of clean sandy beach with a traditional pier and promenade. If it is too cold for the beach but you are desperate to swim, Cleethorpes Leisure Centre has a large indoor swimming pool with a wave machine and slide.

Other places to visit during your stay at Sandes by Water include Hull, the UK City of Culture 2017, with a wealth of shops, theatres, museums and galleries, as well as The Deep Aquarium (car travel time 28 minutes approx.). Do not miss a trip to beautiful Beverley, where the Minster is just one of many historic buildings in the market town worth seeing. Needless to say the famous farmers market at the towns heart is unmissable whether an event is on or not. The ancient cities of Lincoln are around an hour by car, offering even more attractions, history, shopping and food. To name just a few: the castle, the cathedral and the old town district preserve history with a unique shopping and tourist experience lesser seen in todays world. A trip to York allows a great experience for the whole family with a range of shops, many eateries, an enthesis on history and the famed jorvik centre. Skegness is home to fantasy island, pleasure beach and various swimming centres, taking 1 hour and 15 minutes travel via car. A favourite day out for all ages is the Yorkshire wildlife park complete with polar bears, lions, bears, zebras and many other exotic rarities as well as many themed eateries, cafes and live shows, making it a gem of tourism in Yorkshire attracting regular crowds.

As well as a private fishing lake just metres from the door, it has secure bicycle storage, and the owners can even arrange for your horse to stay in the paddocks next to the house. The garden is kid-friendly, so Sandes by Water offers a holiday every member of your family can enjoy!

Accommodation Comprises:

The owners of Sandes by Water have taken great care to create an incredibly comfortable environment that immediately feels welcoming and homely. Thoughtful touches such as a welcome pack and fuel for the wood burner, as well as the incredible gardens and lake, make this a stand-out holiday cottage in Lincolnshire.

Ground Floor:

  • A wood-burning stove is a focal point in the comfortable living room, which also includes ample seating, a Smart television with Freeview channels, and dual aspect glass French doors which open onto a paved patio area and allow wonderful views of the garden.
  • A conservatory provides an extra living room so guests can enjoy different activities without disturbing each other.
  • The fitted kitchen is light and airy with lots of windows and more lovely garden views. It has an electric oven and stove, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. There is a good variety of cooking and serving utensils, as well as ample crockery and cutlery for a full house. A small dining table is ideal for sitting down with a drink or for keeping an eye on the children while you cook.
  • A separate dining room has an elegant table and chairs to seat eight guests. It is perfect for family meals and special occasions.
  • The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and an en-suite with corner bath, separate walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.
  • Second double bedroom which also has a king-sized bed. The en-suite has a bath with shower above, WC and handbasin, and can also be accessed via the hall to make it a convenient family bathroom.
  • A twin bedroom has two full sized single beds and ample storage. It is decorated in a way that makes it appropriate for adults as well as children, and enjoys pretty garden views through the large window.

First Floor:

  • A separate bedroom suite under the eaves has a double bed, Smart television with Freeview channels, sofa bed, and en-suite shower room with WC and handbasin.

Outside: As lovely as the inside of Sandes by Water is, its gardens are equally impressive. There are not many holiday cottages with a fishing lake kept well-stocked by the owners, let alone one which also has paddocks so you can bring your horse. There are five acres of peaceful gardens including off-street parking at the front of the house, and a patio with garden furniture and a barbecue at the rear. A summer house by the lake is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the delightful view, pontoon and gardens.

Additional Information: The property has WiFi and oil-fired central heating throughout. Sorry but no dogs. All linen and towels are included, and a travel cot and high chair are available on request. Short breaks (three night minimum) may be possible depending on availability - please enquire with the owner regarding price.
