Steep Retreat is located in the heart of Lincoln's historic Cathedral quarter at the top of the city's renowned Steep Hill. The apartment is ideally positioned within Castle Square to explore all of the charming independent shops, restaurants, cafes and historic attractions.
Steep Retreat is a spacious ground floor one bedroom apartment in the heart of 'uphill' Lincoln. Once you've entered the main building and gone along the communal corridor (the Grade II listed building houses four individual apartments) the living area is entered through a small yet private and welcoming entrance hall.
The kitchen/living area is also warm and welcoming with a fully fitted kitchen and all other kitchen essentials that we could think of! While the lounge has a comfortable sofa waiting for you to relax on.
Leading into the bedroom you'll find a calm tranquil space in which to retreat at the end of an exciting day exploring our city. If you're brave enough to sleep with the curtains open then you can enjoy the view of Lincoln Cathedral while laying on a very comfy bed! The bedroom has an on-suite shower room, excellent shower with complimentary shower gels, body wash, hand cream and vanity pack. Step outside and enjoy the view of Lincoln Cathedral day and night in the small walled courtyard hidden away from the bustle of the main square accessed via the bedroom or communal corridor.
During your stay you'll have full access to the entire apartment and the walled rear court yard.

With both Matt and I working full time in local schools we are unfortunately unable to meet with any guest until 5pm. However after that time and during evenings, weekends and school holidays we are more than happy to meet, greet and advise on the local area when required. Our working hours do not hinder your access to Steep Retreat as we have a very lovely shop owner next door at Cahoots for Women who is able to hold keys between 3pm to 5pm Monday to Saturday. After 5pm we will be able to meet and greet guests. When leaving the apartment Monday to Saturday key can be handed back to the shop next door or we can arrange to collect keys on your departure.
The court yard is shared with local businesses during the day and other residence within the building however very few people make use of the space.
- It is strictly non smoking inside Steep Retreat, however there is direct access to the court yard.
- Unfortunatly due to the buildings Grade II listed status disabled access is limited.
Our family consists of both of us our son, a cat, two tortoises and a over sized German Shepherd who's frightened of his own shadow! We both work full time in education Matt teaching in a local secondary school and myself working in a local primary school. We have refurbished Steep Retreat during the summer holiday of 2016 in the hope that it will provide a warm, comfortable, cosy home from home to people wanting to come and visit our beautiful city. We aren't lucky enough to live in castle square ourselves, however we are only a few minutes walk away if you need us.
