About us

I had a dream…

I dreamt of a faraway land of breathtaking beauty, where I could watch each season come and go, and where strangers still had time to smile and say ‘hello’.

I also dreamt of a cluster of old houses with thick stone walls, a special place, which through the passage of time had been home to many families before me.

I wanted to wake up each morning to the sounds of birds and fall asleep at night beneath a galaxy of stars. I wanted to be surrounded by green lawns, ancient trees and for the lucky few a glimpse of Deers playing in the early dawn.

I wanted a respite where people could find peace and contentment ...this was my dream and it has come true.

Welcome to our home, your sanctuary from the real world.

Our history

In 1995 Debbie became the owner of White Cottage Farm.

As you can see in the picture to the right it was then very run down and in an unloved state.

Debbie worked tirelessly over 20 years to make Lincoln Retreat what it is today.

She prides herself on her beautiful Retreat being a place where you can relax, reflect, study and recover some inner direction to face the strains of your ordinary life. It is an extremely restful place, with spectacular views over the historical city of Lincoln with marvellous woodland and beautiful scenic walks – the wildflowers and bird life is renowned. 

Lincoln Retreat now provides space for guests to explore their quiet and peaceful surroundings, but also with an option of being able to explore and easily access everything Lincoln has to offer. Lincoln Retreat holds a huge chunk of history; it was previously named White Cottage/Pumping Station and sits within an Inherited Character Area of Lincoln named The Skewbridge.

What a beautiful place

Having come back from this beautiful lodge after a lovely weekend away on a hen do……just wanted to say what a beautiful place this is to stay was really nice and how quiet the lodge was. Really nice and the 8ft bed was even nicer. Would definitely book to stay here with my husband. Thank you for a lovely stay.
