Places to holiday in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire's coastal resorts and Wolds towns are popular holiday destinations and attract many families and surfers each year, which means there are numerous hotels and guest houses. These can work out expensive for a family and are somewhat restrictive on your planning, but staying in self-catering accommodation allows you the freedom to explore.

Holiday cottages in Skegness give you access to this popular resort as well as the neighbouring resorts of Chapel St Leonard's, Ingoldmells and Mablethorpe with their wide-ranging beaches, leisure activities and amusements. Caravan sites are popular on the Lincolnshire coast but they do not have that home from home feel that Lincolnshire seaside cottages have and space is more limited.

Fen's cottages close to Theddlethorpe nature reserve, Saltfleetby, Donna Nook and Gibraltar Point are popular with those interested in birdwatching and wildlife. Market town and country cottages in the Lincolnshire Wolds are popular with cyclists and walkers, especially twice a year at times of the Walking Festival. Grimsby, Lincoln and Hull have significant shopping facilities and are convenient from a holiday cottage.
