The peaceful countryside of Lincolnshire is the perfect place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There are plenty of activites and places to visit to suit everyone, from cycling to museums to theme parks!
Here are some suggestions to get you started on planning your perfect getaway:
Walking and Wildlife:
The scenic Lincolnshire Wolds have been designated as an AONB. The sprawling countryside with its beautiful scenery and historic sites is renowned for its walks and long distance paths. Willingham Woods, situated just outside of Market Rasen, is a large woodland area with a number of different trails to explore. Cyclists and horse-riders are allowed to visit the woods upon obtaining a permit. For more information on walking and cycling routes in Lincolnshire, visit the LCC Country Access Website
Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve is a three mile stretch of unspoilt coastland famous for its outstanding wildlife, especially its birds. Enjoy bird watching from its observatory ‘The Look out’ and, after a walk on the beach, relax in the cafe at the visitors centre. The internationally renowned Donna Nook is a must for its large and very accessible Grey Seal breeding colonies. They can be seen calving in October to December each year and there are excellent public viewing areas that allow you to get a fantastic view of the seal pups.

For those wishing to see some more exotic animals, Friskney’s Parrot Zoo or The Woodside Wildife and Falconry Park make fun days out.
