The Heart of England/Peak District
The Lincolnshire Wolds, the highest point in eastern England between Yorkshire and Kent, is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here, the fertile and rolling chalk hills have been shaped by agriculture for centuries. The Wolds is renowned for its abundance of quiet country lanes and wide open spaces, spectacular skies, breathtaking views and some of the best walking and cycling countryside in the county. The network of footpaths and bridleways offers a range of walking and cycling routes to suit all ages and abilities. The area has many links with Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Henry Winn, and offers visitors a wealth of towns, villages and attractions to visit during their stay. The Wolds market towns of nearby Horncastle, with some 20 antique shops, as well as Alford, Louth and Spilsby, offer excellent starting and stopping-off places when exploring the area.
The impressive City of Lincoln, just 25 miles away, is steeped in 2,000 years of history with evidence of both Roman and Medieval periods, as well as notable architecture left by the Tudors and Georgians. One of Europe's finest cathedrals is in Lincoln and sits on part of the site of a 1st century Roman fortress high on the hill. Close by is the Norman Castle built by William the Conqueror on the site of the former Roman fortress, which dates from 1068. Walk along the walls of the Castle and enjoy the wonderful views across this handsome City.
Horncastle sits between the cathedral city of Lincoln and the seaside town of Skegness, with Coningsby, Woodhall Spa and Louth in close proximity. Keen golfers will want to enjoy playing some of the golf courses close to Horncastle, particularly the two magnificent courses at Woodhall Spa.
