The tiny village of Stroxton lies in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside, in the county’s unspoiled South Kesteven district. It is three miles south of Grantham and one mile northwest of Great Ponton. This peaceful, rural community consists of little more than a scattering of homes, strung along narrow Stroxton Lane. Lined with hedgerows, woods and fields, the lane meanders into the surrounding countryside. On the doorstep of your holiday cottage in Stroxton, you will be able to enjoy long walks, often in complete solitude. There are no shops or pubs in the village, making it the perfect place for visitors who want to get back to basics. The village’s only obvious landmark is graceful All Saints Church, which stands near a pretty pond. In the neighbouring village of Great Ponton, which lies on the banks of Cringle Brook, you will find a small grocery and a petrol station. A visit to the charming town of Grantham is a must on self-catering holidays in Stroxton. Take a wander around the town centre, where you will discover a variety of independent shops, pubs and cafes, and fine historical architecture, such as towering St Wulfram’s Church and magnificent Belton House. A stroll around the 1,300 beautiful acres of Belton Park is also a must.
