Cosy holiday accommodation in Lincolnshire
Barn Owl Cottage has now closed. We would like to thank everybody who has stayed here over the last 7 years for your business and hope that your stay was a happy one.

Kind regards, Birgit Higgs







Situated in the quiet hamlet of North Cockerington, Barn Owl Cottage is only 3 miles from Louth - the Capital of the Wolds. Lovely walks start on your doorstep!

The Lincolnshire Wolds - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty


A well equipped self-catering cottage which is ideal for walkers, cyclists and anyone who enjoys nature and wildlife. The barn owls love to fly and hunt at dusk.

Barn Owls can often be seen hunting at dusk and even during the day


Louth has just been voted "Britain's Favourite Market Town" by BBC's Countryfile magazine. Explore the quaint family run shops that sell local produce like Poacher Cheese.

Another busy market day in Louth


What makes Barn Owl Cottage so special? Just read what our guests have written in the visitor book:

"We've stayed in many cottages and this is by far the nicest"
"Friendly welcome, all mod cons and a few little perks on top"
"Good peaceful location, well equipped, very clean cottage"
"Cottage has everything and more, would recommend to anyone"



The beaches of Mablethorpe, Cleethorpes, Skegness and Anderby Creek are all within easy driving distance

Nothing beats a stroll along the Blue Flag beaches at Cleethorpes or Anderby Creek.


Fishing is available in several lakes nearby

Fishing lakes containing 20lb+ carp are only about a mile from our holiday let.


Our cottage is close to cycle route one

The quiet lanes are perfect for cycling on peaceful flat or challenging hilly roads.
