Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in The Lincolnshire Wolds

The Lincolnshire Wolds is a designated National Landscape that covers 216 square miles of undisturbed countryside. Nestled between low, rolling hills and steep limestone valleys, the region is dotted with welcoming villages and market towns, making it an ideal destination for self-catering holidays. Stretching parallel to the North Sea coast, from the River Humber in the north to the Lincolnshire Fens in the south, the Lincolnshire Wolds are a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. With an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways, visitors can enjoy long and peaceful walks, horse riding, wild swimming, and wildlife-watching. As you hike up the rugged hills, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views across Lindsey and Holland's flat fens and salt marshes. On a clear day, you might even be able to spot landmarks to the north, such as the Humber Bridge or Lincoln Cathedral.
