40/42 Michaelgate occupies a wonderful position on Steep Hill in the centre of the historic city of Lincoln. The views from the top floor are across the roof tops and out towards open countryside.
The building is a curious mix of half timbered and a brick construction, the historic, sparsely furnished rooms of the half timbered section of the property are there for you to explore, however the living areas in the brick built section offer a cosy, welcoming interior and offer a great base for exploring this fascinating city and all it has to offer.
Two thousand years of history are on the doorstep of this charming Grade II listed cottage with Lincoln Castle and the marvellous 12th-century cathedral within easy walking distance. The Cathedral was the recent film setting of The Da Vinci Code.

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.
