October, November and December were very busy at Fulbeck Gardens Cottage. We saw many new faces as well as returning customers who were eager to hit the shops in Lincoln and other delightful Lincolnshire market towns all in search of a Christmas bargain and artisan crafted food and gifts. Lincoln Christmas Market was very popular this year, very well organised with plenty of places to stop and rest over a cup of tea or mulled wine.
So many lovely comments were left in the Visitor Guestbook, on the quality and cleanliness of our cottage and the delight of dipping into the hot-tub after a day exploring Lincolnshire. We added some of our home-grown produce in our "Farmer's Pantry" in the cottage for guests should they wish to purchase wine or oil or other products made with our oil (which has proved very popular).
As planned we have expanded our promotion of all things "Select Lincolnshire" and "Visit Lincolnshire" with notice boards and promotional literature in one of our outbuildings. This is in addition to the 6 files in the sitting room full of information on Aviation Heritage, Historic Houses & Gardens, Lincolnshire Food Producers and Events, Days out for the family, Walks locally and throughout Lincolnshire, Shopping in Lincolnshire. We have also created a noticeboard for the many exciting things happening with Lincoln Castle Revealed, the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta and The National Cycling Championships.
To highlight all the events happening in Lincolnshire via modern technology, we will be posting information in advance on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so that anyone wanting to book our cottage can plan their agenda for the week or weekend.
