Weeks holiday
If you want peace and quiet this is not the place to stay. On a main road with the church just across the road. The clock chimes every 15 mins 24/7. Does not bode well if like me you are a light sleeper. Ear plugs didn't help one single bit. The church bell are rung rather a lot and Wednesday night for well over an hour and a half. Thursday afternoon about the same we were hoping to have a bit of a chill out before going home Friday morning. They ring Sunday mornings too so no chance of a lie in. This is ok if you are deaf . Bungalow rather small but everything to make use of. However I was disappointed with the over all cleanliness of the place after having seen on here it was spotless. Lots of cobwebs, dog hairs last person had left crockery etc greasy so I had to wash it before I could use it. There was blood on one cushion on the sofa, horrible black at the base of shower doors. Shower room small as is the bedroom . Bed linen and towels were nice and comfy bed. Laundry room lots of cobwebs and spiders. Most neighbours are fine but no9 had a right slanging match with foul language. Nice touch was milk in the fridge and chocolate biscuits, there is also tea,coffee, sugar and a cruet. Books,games and DVDs . Lovely village with plenty of shops and places to eat the bell is by far the best place to eat with two meals for £12 Tuesday to Friday between 5pm and 6pm.

The Annexe was left clean for our arrival. It is quite small. It is situated on an extremely busy main road through Burgh Le Marsh with constant passing traffic all day, eases off after midnight, starts up again early morning. The living room windows are right on top of the busy main road, summer evenings, windows open, can?t hear the TV for the traffic. The bedroom window is close to the busy main road and less than a hundred yards on the other side of the busy main road there is a clock tower that chimes 24/7 on the quarter hours with full works on the hour. The 12 chimes of midnight are hauntingly loud and if you do manage to sleep then you'll not sleep in because the 5am chimes are sure to wake you if the 4am chimes already haven?t. So if you are after peace and quiet, considering the traffic noise and church bells then The Annexe wouldn?t be for you. The Annexe is pet friendly in that pets are allowed but it is very small inside so could be a bit crowded if you have a big dog. Outside would be extremely hair raising if your dog is off it's lead because of the busy main road, there is no fenced off area, dogs would be straight out of the door onto the courtyard. The Annexe I believe was a former public house, which brings me onto the courtyard. The Annexe steps straight out onto the courtyard that I guess would have once been the pub car park. This courtyard is shared by six, maybe seven other properties, residents, they live their all the time and each house has it's own allocated car parking space outside it's front door. So, potentially given a The Annexe has it's own allocated car parking space outside the front door and the other residents have theirs, along with their visitors there could be 7 or more cars in the courtyard and this is your patio ! So, if you like the kind of holiday where you want to sit outside the cottage and ?chill? as they say, The Annexe probably isn?t for you, it is quite busy in the courtyard with the comings and goings of residents, their visitors and not to mention the nearby busy main road and church bells. The owner has put a communal bench on the other side of the courtyard, set away from The Annexe, but again, you would be sitting with all the cars and between two of the residential properties, not ideal. The third alternative is to move the chairs to the front of side of the cottage but this would put you right by the busy main road, on top of not only the traffic but passers by too, gets quite at going to school and picking up from school times, we'll there are pedestrians up and down all day because it's a built up area, school not far away. It might well be that the residents in the courtyard experiencing ?relationship? difficulties during our stay might have moved on, if not, you are in for a noisy time from their unacceptable noisy anti social behaviours, foul language and intimidation if you ask them to quieten down. All in All this was the worst experience we have ever had, we left feeling exhausted through lack of sleep (the traffic and bells) and on edge because of the anti social behaviours of one household in the shared courtyard. Oh if you like police cars, we had those too ! ! Yes, on our last night they were in the courtyard, 2am engine running, knocking on the door of the house having ?relationship difficulties? and waving their torches around, police car's engine left running, headlights full on, walkies talkies talking.

Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated cottage in a great location.
Was very impressed by this cottage on my recent holiday. It was tastefully decorated and furnished and felt very comfortable and relaxing right from the start. The kitchen was well equipped and there are plenty of pubs and takeaways in Burgh le Marsh for any time you do not want to cook The local food shops are very good too especially the Co-op. The utility room is only a few yards away from the Annexe and is also spotlessly clean and well equipped. The double bedroom was very pretty and had a very comfortable bed. Burgh le Marsh is a beautiful town, ideally situated for exploring the area by car and is about 4 or 5 miles from Skegness. The cottage is situated opposite the church and if therefore easy to find for anyone without satnav. Had such a relaxing holiday, have booked to go back. The owner is very pleasant and helpful if you need to contact him for any reason.
