The Heart of England/Peak District
This region is one of the UK's best kept secrets. Everyone knows about the Cotswolds, but have you heard of the Linconshire Wolds?
The Lincolnshire Wolds are the highest point in eastern England between Yorkshire and Kent. They are designated an Area of Outstanding National Beauty. These rolling, fertile chalk hills, moulded by successive ice ages, offer splendid views and amazing walks. Nestling amongst them are sleepy stone villages and bustling market towns steeped in history and just
waiting to be discovered.
Leave the car. Take a walk or cycle through this wonderful countryside and explore its hidden valleys, lush flora, streams and rivers. Use your time to meet the local people who are proud of their heritage and local traditions.This is a landscape that inspired one of England's greatest poets, Alfred Lord Tennyson, born in Somersby. Search out his 'haunt of ancient peace' described in his poetry or visit the village where he was born.
and the county of Lincolnshire is still predominently agricultural and a little explored part of England.
The Lincolnshire coast near here is very wild and beautiful if you keep away from the coastal resorts of Cleethorpes, Mablethorpe and Skegness. These resorts have their own charms but if it is peace and quiet you are looking for, then the beaches and coastal walks we provide details of are just what you need.
There is a coast path all the way from Mablethorpe to Anderby Creek, but bad winter storms and an east wind blowing for 6 months means that much of it is now difficult to cycle along, although you can still walk most of it with ease.
DONNA NOOK SEALS
The Seal Viewing Area is open late October to December. Pupping takes place from November onwards.
Britain's population of grey seals is considered to be of international conservation importance. Donna Nook is home to some 3000 Grey seals at certain times of the year, and in 2008 more than 1000 pups were born here.
The viewing area at the foot of the sand dunes reduces disturbance to the seals and ensures the safety of visitors.
Someone is usually on hand when the wildlife station is open to answer your queries. A free car parking area also provides winter refreshments.
For much of the rest of the year grey seals at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trusts' Donna Nook National Nature Reserve are at sea or lazing on distant sandbanks. Every November and December, the seals give birth to their pups near the sand dunes: a wildlife spectacle which attracts visitors from across the UK.
Seals are large predators and are very powerful. They can move surprisingly quickly and, having teeth similar to a dog, can inflict a nasty bite including the pups.
Mothers with pups can be very protective and big bulls can be aggressive. A mother seal may abandon her pup if it smells of humans or dogs, so it is advisable to leave your pet at home.
Up to 1000 pups are born here each year, but it depends on the winter conditions as to how many survive. Donna Nook has a good pup survival record, however.
The pups are born white and, as they grow, begin to change the colour of their coat.
They are fed for 10- 14 days and, during this time put on a massive amount of weight. After this time they are abandoned and, eventually, hunger drives them out to sea.
Our apartment is a warm, cosy and welcoming place to stay as a base for viewing these fascinating creatures from November to December. Why not combine it with a visit to Louth Christmas Market on 1st December 2013 or the amazing and huge Christmas Market at Lincoln from 5th -8th December 2013?
