Well behaved dogs are welcome (sorry no Cats) but please inform us if you are bringing your pet . As well as having the many features above, it is an ideal get away as we are lucky enough to be placed in beautiful peaceful surroundings in a lovely village, close to the picturesque wolds, as well as being near the capital of the wolds, Louth, which was voted Britain's favourite market town by Countryfile magazine, and is known for its fantastic food shops. We are also within a short drive of the famous Cadwell Park, the seaside resort of Cleethorpes, Donna Nook nature reserve where seals come to give birth in November and walking distance from Covenham Reservoir where there are watersports, bird watching and a lovely walk. If you are here for a romantic break and have any further requirements such as wine, flowers, chocolates etc. please let us know and we will make sure you have whatever you require and will give you a price in advance. An information folder, containing details of local pubs, restaurants and shops, as well as walk leaflets and brochures on places to visit can be found in your holiday cottage. We have a great restaurant within walking distance.The Millhouse Restaurant, which is a delightful thatched building with a restaurant and bar as well as outside seating. It has a varied menu and is well worth a visit.. For those of you eating out with dogs,The Cross Keys just one mile in the next village allows dogs in the bar area where you may eat and have access to the full menu.

About the neighbourhood
Covenham is a fairly small village and does not have any transport or shops although we are only around 5 miles from Louth and we do have a delightful Pub/Restaurant in the village. We are situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, and within walking distance of Covenham Reservoir. There are also lots of lovely walks and beautiful beaches just 15 minutes away by car. If you have a dog there are lots of semi deserted beaches to let them run free on. Louth is a really lovely market town with lots to offer those who like artisan shops or antiques as well as supermarkets, street market, (Wed, Fri, Sat) coffee shops, tea rooms, and a great parkland called Hubbards Hills which is also great for dogs. It is very pretty and has a little stream
Getting around
From Covenham although there is no public transport, you are close to Louth, The Lincolnshire Wolds with its many pretty villages, Cleethorpes,Mablethorpe, Theddlethorpe, Donna Nook, Grimsby,Horncastle,Lincoln and many more places to visit .
