Masondale Cottage & the Lincolnshire Wolds - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Masondale Cottage sits at the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds with unrivalled panoramic views of the Vale of Ancholme looking across to the Lincoln Edge or "Cliff" as it is know locally, with Lincoln Cathedral prominent on the horizon.

Absolutely "away from it all" the cottage is situated within Otby Farm, which is close to the villages of Walesby and Tealby (noted as one of prettiest villages in the county) and the market towns of Louth and Market Rasen (with its Race Course) are nearby. A public footpath that very soon joins the Viking Way passes through the farm.

Quality in Tourism 2016 inspection summary. Four Star self-catering maintained.

The location of this house is excellent, and the accommodation is very spacious, and bathrooms are provided for each bedroom. A really great property offering a quiet and private location, and excellent views over the Wolds. Great walking and biking countryside on the doorstep. .

August 2016 – Goodwin Family
Lovely Cottage with fantastic views. Have visited family in Lincoln and Welton. Super base for Lincoln. Will be back.

July 2016 – Collins Family
Another lovely week on your beautiful farm. Hope to be back again soon

July 2016 – Pack and Mellor Families
Buster, Queenie and friends joined us for a third year at Otby Farm and had a fantastic stay. Along with their owners they trekked around the beautiful countryside taking in Stainton le Vale, Hainton, Tealby and some of the Lindsey Trail. The horses really settle here and we hope that the whole party will be back next year.

We’ve had a great week, perfect weather to enjoy walks in the quiet countryside. We recommend Lincoln & the Cathedral and the Lincolnshire Aviation Centre at East Kirkby is well worth a visit. We loved the views and hope to return.

April 2016 – Willis Family
Lovely to see Rocky (the sheep) and the lambs. Thank you for your hospitality. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

April/May 2017

April has been a bit of a whirl but finally all the sheep have had their lambs. The fields are full and the weather is being very kind to us allowing the lambs to get off to a good start. We’ve posted a few photos of Lambing 2017 on our Facebook page if you are interested in having a look.

Once again there is a lot to do out and about on the Lincolnshire Wolds especially with the Wolds Walking Festival planned for May. There are organised walks all over the Wolds, take a look at their website for details.

If a Spa day is more what you are looking for to relax then we can highly recommend Kenwick Park, just under 20 miles from Masondale Cottage where they have lovely facilities to enhance your stay.

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust have many sites around the county including Whisby Nature Park where until the 25th June there is a ‘Birds on the Wing’ exhibition that explores the life and beauty of both garden and wetland birds. There is also plenty for the children to do and explore here including an adventure playground.

The Lincolnshire Show is also fast approaching on 21st and 22nd June which is a great day out for all the family. Tickets are available on the website or on the gate.


Whatever your plans we look forward to welcoming you to Masondale Cottage. Please contact us directly or take a look at the booking and availability page to check your dates.
