Rich Heritage & Natural Beauty

As well as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lincolnshire has a wealth of history and heritage to share with you during your stay.

From the glorious Lincoln Cathedral, (once the tallest structure in the country), to the boutique shops of Bailgate across to the Lincolnshire Coast, there is something for everyone.

Explore the City of Lincoln with the quieter older part of the walled city of Bailgate, cobbled streets and small narrow roads. For department stores a walk down Steep Hill leads to the newer part of the City and Brayford Marina. For those that are brave enough a walk back up Steep Hill will test your fitness or perhaps stop at one of the many cafes for a rest.

The east coast offers sandy dunes a great place to wander with or without pets. There are many special sites of interest with Gibraltar Point being one of the local favourites managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. A hidden gem is Anderby Creek, hidden in the dunes is a Round House providing for year round bird watching.

Some highlights are below..

  • Market Towns abound: Louth, Horncastle, Alford, Caistor, Market Rasen, Spilsby
  • Tudor history on our doorstep at Bolingbroke Castle, Thimbleby, (a Tudor village), Tattershall Castle (image above), Gainsborough Old Hall
