From coast to countryside, there''s plenty to see and do in Lincolnshire; perfect for visitors young and old who come here to enjoy beautifully rural landscapes, glorious sandy beaches and rich historical sites.
For a little taste of history you could head to Lincoln Castle which was built in the 11th Century, where you can walk the walls and visit the Victorian prison. Or you could explore Lincoln''s famous gothic Cathedral and marvel at its intricate carvings; why not set the kids the challenge of finding the ''Lincoln imp'' or the ‘Cat and Mouse’ hidden within the building. The Cathedral can be reached by the aptly named ''Steep Hill'' but be sure to pace yourself and enjoy the quirky shops and tearooms on the way up.
When you stay in a holiday cottage you have total freedom to relax in your own space. And if you fancy watching a film you could stay in and put your feet up or maybe visit The Kinema in the Woods at Woodhall Spa which has kept alive all the old favourite cinema traditions; a little piece of history in itself. As well as a film, you can enjoy introductory piano music, retro decor and a good old fashioned ice cream interval!
To experience a traditionally ''British'' seaside resort, with plenty of candyfloss and amusements, you can''t beat Skegness and Cleethorpes, or for a quieter picnicking spot on the coast, you could try Sutton-on-Sea.
Active holidays are well catered for and include climbing, canoeing, quad-biking, cycling and paint-balling, there is the obvious option of going on some glorious walks which can be found throughout the county.
For wildlife lovers, there are nature reserves galore in and around Lincolnshire; Gibraltar Point is teeming with birdlife and Donna Nook nature reserve is a breeding ground for seals which is open to the public.
Lincolnshire has some lovely waterways, whether you''d prefer to stroll along the towpath, paddle in the river or spend a day on a narrowboat, there''s a huge network of canals and rivers to explore and make sure to sample some local delicacies in one of the picturesque waterside pubs or restaurants.
