Make a holiday rental homes or holiday cottages in Lincolnshire your home away from home

Lincolnshire is a county in the East of England that borders Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Yorkshire and nineteen metres of Northamptonshire! The county town is the city of Lincoln and other towns of significance include Grantham, Grimsby, Boston, Scunthorpe, Spalding, Stamford and Skegness.

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.

Things to do in Lincolnshire

There are several annual festivals and events that draw holidaymakers to Lincolnshire including the Agricultural Show, which takes place the last week in June. The Grange de Lings showground is also used throughout the year for a variety of functions and events. RAF Waddington Air Show is another popular attraction at the end of June and an annual Scarecrow Festival is held in May each year in the villages of Salmonby and Tetford.

Other interesting events include the Corby Glen sheep fair, the Haxey Hood village competition in January, the Spalding Flower Parade in the Spring, Stamford Mid- Lent fair and the Lincoln Christmas Market. Museums well worth visit include the Church Farm Museum and the Museum of Lincolnshire Life. Stamford Museum has fascinating local collections and the unique Stamford Tapestry. Grantham Museum has wonderful displays of social history and archaeology.

Roses retreat was spotless with the most comfortable bed in the world ! It was very well equipped with all you could need plus a very welcome pack. Our only pointer that disappointed was the lack of a window to look out to the world whilst we had time to enjoy it ! We had to be satisfied looking into one another's eyes for a change of scenery. A lovely holiday thankyou

Cottage was clean and tidy. 2 minute walk to dog friendly beach. Chip shop at the bottom of the road, childrens play area at the top. Everything that a family would want really. Public car park about 200 yards give or take a few yards. We had hoped to return this year but have just read that pets are no longer welcome shame really.

The Cottage was everything we hoped it would be for a comfortable family stay & a celebration in beautiful surroundings including the views. The property was decorated & furnished to a high standard inside & outside. Also it was child friendly with high chair, stair gate, cot & enclosed garden. The Cottage was clean and well-maintained & the owner provided good customer service. I would highly recommend this property to friends or relatives.
