Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in The Lincolnshire Wolds

Holiday cottages in the Lincolnshire Wolds are surrounded by low, rolling hills and steep limestone valleys. The area covers 216 square miles of unspoiled countryside, scattered with welcoming villages and market towns which make excellent bases for self-catering holidays in the Lincolnshire Wolds. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty runs parallel to the North Sea coast, from the River Humber in the north to the Lincolnshire Fens in the south. Crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways, the Lincolnshire Wolds are a paradise for long, peaceful walks, horse-riding, wild swimming and wildlife-watching. As you climb rugged hills, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views across the flat fens and salt marshes of Lindsey and Holland. On a clear day, you might even be able to make out landmarks to the north, such as the Humber Bridge or Lincoln Cathedral.


WWold's View is a charming barn conversion in the Lincolnshire Wolds, one of two next to the owner's home in Austen Fen, six miles from Louth. It sleeps four people with one double bedroom and a sofa bed in the sitting area.

The pretty town of Alford is famous for its crafts markets and is home to a working, five-sailed windmill used to produce organic flour and cereal. Caistor is a small town on the Wolds’ western escarpment, with graceful Georgian architecture and a history of holding the world’s largest sheep fairs. Nestled between the River Bain and River Waring, Horncastle is another bustling market town with a maze of cobbled streets and Roman ruins. On the eastern border of the Wolds, Louth is an ancient rural community with a high-spired church from which incredible views can be enjoyed. The town of Spilsby hosts an excellent market where you can pick up fresh produce from the surrounding countryside. And on the Wolds’ western edge, Market Rasen is a charming town with various independent shops and a renowned racecourse.

There is much to do during a stay in a Lincolnshire Wolds holiday cottage, from hiking through miles of gently rolling countryside to wakeboarding at Tattershall Lakes Country Park. Woodhall Spa is home to Flicks in the Sticks, one of the country’s last remaining back-projection cinemas. Snipe Dales Nature Park is a great place to spot rare birds. And Rushmoor Country Park is a fun family day out with animals and falconry.
