Holiday cottages Lincolnshire
From the striking historic architecture of Lincoln city to its stunning eastern coastline, holiday cottages in Lincolnshire are perfect for an inspiring English break with a variety of attractions to explore.
Whether you want a city break with a difference, a trip to the seaside, a cosy, rural bolt-hole, or a bit of all three, you’ll find all these options and more when choosing your holiday cottage in Lincolnshire.
The imposing Lincoln Cathedral towers over the city and is the jewel in the crown of Lincolnshire’s unrivalled collection of ecclesiastical buildings, with churches spanning Saxon, Norman, Gothic and medieval times, dotted throughout the county. Lincoln city itself offers plenty more charms too, including traditional English inns and chic, modern bars, artisan food shops, fine restaurants and gastropubs, boutique and luxury shopping as well as bustling markets including its famous Christmas Market set on the cobbled streets of the cultural quarter.
The city of Lincoln exudes an atmosphere that is far removed from that of England’s crowded metropolises and within moments you can be relaxing in the tranquillity of the countryside and the unspoilt, natural beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area which offers peaceful walking routes as well as the opportunity to sample the tasty treats of picturesque market towns, such as Stamford with its medieval stone buildings, or the Georgian surrounds of Louth.
While Lincoln Cathedral may be its most famous architectural gem, there is a wealth of other historical buildings just waiting to be discovered and perfect for a sightseeing trip during your holiday cottage break in Lincolnshire. Medieval manor house Gainsborough Old Hall dates back to the 15th century and is wonderfully well preserved, 13th century Grimsthorpe Castle is beautifully sited within 3,000 acres of parkland and surrounded by lakes and woods, while Belvoir Castle is still inhabited but open to be explored by visitors on its stunning hilltop setting.
You can enjoy some sea air during your Lincolnshire holiday too, with the traditional seaside charms of Skegness, Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes continuing to attract families from far and wide, while the long stretch of coastline is a haven for wildlife too, with the Gibraltor Point National Nature Reserve home to a vast array of protected flaura and fauna while North Somercotes is home to the largest breeding colony of grey seals in England. You will also find animal magic in abundance away from the coast, with children’s favourites such as the Butterfly and Wildlife Park in Spalding, Rushmoor Country Park complete with its family of miniature pigs and Rand Farm Park where visitors can feed the lambs and other animals.
