Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Louth

The market town of Louth lies on the eastern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. It is known for its fine architecture, which includes many brick buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Undoubtedly, the town’s most distinctive landmark, St. James’ Church, stands in the town centre, near the banks of the River Lud, with a soaring spire that can be seen for miles around. The historic town centre has a wealth of independent businesses on the doorstep of Louth holiday cottages. Don’t miss Eve and Ranshaw at the Marketplace, an old-fashioned department store. Nearby, on Cannon Street, Playhouse Cinema is a lovely place to catch a showing of a new release or a classic. On Eastgate, the Cheese Shop sells an impressive variety of Lincolnshire cheeses, and there is an award-winning butcher’s, Meridian Meats.

2-storey brick cottage overlooks a quiet street.

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.

To the town’s west, Hubbard’s Hills is not to be missed on self-catering holidays in Louth.

On the doorstep of holiday cottages in Louth, the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is home to wild hills and steep limestone valleys where walking, horse-riding, and swimming are popular. Many footpaths ascend to hilltops where walkers are rewarded with breathtaking views across fens and salt marshes. Visitors will enjoy the scenic drive eastward from Louth and deserted beaches backed by dunes on the Lincolnshire coast.
