Lincolnshire Coast and Countryside

If you prefer countryside to be as remote and unspoiled as possible, you’ll love Lincolnshire. In the south the landscapes are flat, with wide open skies and brilliant sunsets and sunrises.
The flatness is interrupted in the west by the Vales and in the centre by the Lincolnshire Wolds, rolling chalk and sandstone hills with the prettiest agricultural landscapes. Visitors come to the county for the coast, with its string of nostalgic seaside resorts. But don’t neglect the towns, which have incredible churches and medieval halls and contain the birthplaces of world-changing historical personalities like Sir Isaac Newton.

Back To Nature

Close by we have various Nature Reserves, including the world-famous Donna Nook – one of the most successful breeding grounds for Grey seals. From late October to the end of December bulls, cows and pups can easily be seen on the beaches of the reserve. We are also a stone’s throw from the magnificent beaches of Mablethorpe and the Lincolnshire Wolds that provide wonderful walking opportunities throughout the year.  A short twenty-minute drive away is the market town of Louth, where you can enjoy independent shops and eateries.
