Places of interest
Lincolnshire is a county where you can enjoy both coast and country. From the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds in the north to the vast stretches of sandy beach that run the length of the county, Lincolnshire is the perfect holiday destination for those who love the great outdoors.
But it’s also a fantastic destination for those who love exploring picturesque places, with delightful market towns and villages just waiting to be discovered.
Here’s our guide to some of our favourite places that are well worth a visit during your stay with us.
One of the UK’s most popular seaside destinations, a visit to Skegness is one you’ll never forget. Walk along the front and sample a wonderland of family friendly attractions – go-karting, ten-pin bowling, enjoy rides at the funfairs and crazy golf – there’s so much to keep you entertained!
If you don’t mind a 30-40 minute car journey then a visit to Lincoln should definitely be on your lists. There really is so much to see and do here and offers an experience rich in history with its cathedral and castle. It is also the only place in the world where you can find the original copies of the Magna Carta. The city is also a fantastic place for those who fancy a bit retail therapy, with dozens of independent shops and national retailers. It’s also a great place for a bite to eat, with its boutique cafes, restaurants and bars.
17 miles East of Lincoln is Horncastle, which is famed for its antiques. But you cannot visit Horncastle without attending the weekly markets that take place every Thursday and Saturday. The farmer’s market is also well worth a visit. Here you can buy Lincolnshire local produce including plumbread and poacher cheese.
Spilsby is a small market town only a short distance from our parks. If you are heading out, away from the coast, then it is well worth a visit! The town has a long market tradition which stretches back over 700 years. It is a lovely little place to wander around with a variety of shops and places to grab a bite to eat.
Just a few minutes from our park is Burgh le Marsh. This small market town was once an ancient Roman settlement. It has a good selection of shops (perfect for stocking up on those essentials) and places to eat and drink. It is also home to the popular Dobsons Windmill and Heritage Centre, which is well worth a visit.
