The Heart of England/Peak District
Lincolnshire is one of Englands best kept secrets!!
Previously not one of the easiest places to get to - things have now changed, we are only half an hour from the A1 at Newark or the M180 at Scunthorpe.
The Lincolnshire Wolds with its beautiful countryside are only half an hours drive away, with Gibraltar Point and the East coast resorts within an hour - depending on traffic!
Lincoln and the surrounding areas are now enjoying an influx of visitors - whatever your reason to visit you will find that Lincolnshire has plenty to offer.
Why not come and have a look for yourself, I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
Nettleham is acknowledged to be one of the most attractive stone villages in the area and has won the Lincolnshire Best Kept Village Award on numerous occasions.
A quintessential English village just four miles from Lincoln City, it has retained its traditional Village Green, with shops, library, pubs which serve meals and the picturesque Beck flows by All Saints Parish Church.
There is an excellent bus service which will take you the four miles into Lincoln where you can explore the city or with its magnificent cathedral and historical Bailgate area or you can travel Market Rasen & Grimsby.
For those who prefer to cycle, the Hull to Harwich cycle route passes through Nettleham.

"Home from Home"
The Old Vicarage Cottage was the most comfortable and best equipped self catering accommodation my wife and I have stayed in. We could not fault the cleanliness and quality of the furniture and fittings provided.. The property is conveniently located with shops and dining facilities within 5/6 minutes walk. We use this cottage when visiting family in nearby Dunholme and have no hesitation in continuing to stay here as long as it is available. I have absolutely no reservation in recommending this accommodation.
