About 2 Castle CottageEnjoy a comfortable stay within the grounds of Tattershall Castle.
2 Castle Cottages is a simple and cosy cottage which combines the comfort of modern day living with traditional furnishings that nod to its past.
The cottage is located to the west of the Great Tower of Tattershall Castle, just beyond the Castle’s outer moat. This cosy house was originally a detached farmhouse dating back to the late 18th or early 19th century. The farmhouse was subdivided in the 1860s to provide dwellings for agricultural labourers. The castle, along with all its cottages and grounds were acquired in 1912 by Nathanial, Lord Curzon of Kedleston, who restored Tattersall Castle and bequeathed the entire estate to the National Trust upon his death in 1925.
Step inside to find the entrance hallway, where to the right you’ll find the kitchen and to the left a small boiler room. Follow the hallway to the end and into the sitting room. Upstairs there’s a double bedroom, with a 5ft bed, leading onto the luxurious bathroom which has a slipper bath and a separate shower cubicle.
Outside at the rear of the cottage, is an enclosed lawn area which has a table and two chairs, making it ideal for al fresco dinners or relaxing afternoon cuppas together.
When you stay here you can enjoy out-of-hours access to the ground of Tattershall Castle, where you’ll be able to explore in a new light. You may like to take a stroll after dinner and immerse yourself in the history of this special place.
There’s plenty to see and do at Tattershall Castle, including walking trails around the Castle and along the nearby River Bain. The historic village of Tattershall is just a 10-minute walk away, where you can enjoy a meal out at one of the two pubs. The village, according to legend, also boasts the grave of Tom Thumb – a miniature folklore hero who was said to be just over 18 inches tall and lived to the age of 101. You can also find an impressive beam steam engine at Dogdyke Pumping Station and Just Wake Water Park, where you can try your hand at wake boarding and other water-based activities.
If you want to head further afield, the National Trust property of Gunby Hall is just a 30-minute drive away. Or you could spend the day in the city of Lincoln, where the cathedral, castle, museums and shops all wait to be explored. If you just want to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, there are acres of rolling green countryside on your doorstep and the delights of the Lincolnshire coast, including Skegness beach, are just a 45-minute drive away.
