The Heart of England / Peak District / Lincolnshire region
Villa Barns is a stunning Barn Conversion located in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Lincolnshire has 8 county neighbors – Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, East Riding, South Yorkshire, Leicestershire and North Hamptonshire.
Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire share the shortest county boarder in the whole UK, it’s only 19m long – that shorter then a swimming pools length. Lincolnshire has 50miles of coastline fun!
Lincolnshire people are called ‘yellowbellies’ as a nick name but nobody really knows why. Lincolnshire produces nearly 20% of all the food eaten in the UK – the county has wonderful fertile growing soil, so when you eat your dinner, lunch or tea there’s a chance it’s been produced in Lincolnshire.
North East Lincolnshire – around Cleethorpes – is known as the ‘Bird Airport’ of the East Coast (a bit like Heathrow for humans) due to the amount of birds it attracts.
Lincolnshire holds the The World Egg Throwing Competition, it takes place each June in Swaton, Lincolnshire. Contestants have to construct a gravity-powered egg-hurling device to launch an egg to a waiting team member. Eggs can travel at speeds of up to 120 mph and distances to be achieved start at 30 meters – this can be extended up to 150 in this knock out competition! As teams construct their machines they will discover that the further the throw, the faster the egg.
Interesting historical facts
Lincoln is possible most well known for its Cathedral – the Cathedral used to be one of the tallest building in the UK but in 1549 the spire, which sat ontop of the existing tower, blew off and was never replaced -•The Lincoln Imp – High on the pillar of the Angel Choir in Lincoln Cathedral is the stone carving of the Lincoln Imp. The 12-inch high creature is said to have wreaked havoc over years within the magnificent cathedral, until it was turned into stone by an angel. Look at www.icons.org.uk Can you find him?
Lincoln Castle is home to one of the most important historical documents in the UK – the Magna Carta. The Magna Carta was the very first document to set out the Law, as we know it today.

A beautiful barn conversion, well-appointed and very spacious bedrooms. Open plan living accommdation is on the small side in comparison to the space upstairs but still plenty of room for every holiday need. Safe playing for children in the fenced-off garden area. Nigel and Amy very friendly and approachable hosts who make you feel very welcome. Lovely pub in the village only a short walk from Villa barns which serves fabulous food at reasonable prices.
