All our Lincolnshire collections:
Lincolnshire covers a great swathe of green and pleasant countryside from lush, rolling farmland to the dead flatness of the fens, via peaceful waterways. Despite Lincolnshire's beauty, this is a lightly populated county, just sprinkled with old, stone market towns and little seaside resorts. The best places to stay in Lincolnshire include charming old coaching inns and country house hotels worthy of their own period drama.
Several of Lincolnshire's main sights can be found, unsurprisingly, in Lincoln. First there's the magnificent cathedral and Lincoln Castle, one of the first built by William the Conqueror.
Lincolnshire is also proud to be the birthplace of Isaac Newton - he was born at Woolsthorpe Manor, just south of Grantham, and has a number of exceptional stately homes. Also close to Grantham you'll find one of the most recognisable, Restoration darling, Belton House, star of the BBC's Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice.
Lincolnshire is also famous for its place in aviation history. RAF Scrampton, near Lincoln was the home of the 617 Squadron, later known as the Dambusters, and is now the present home of the Red Arrows.
Lincolnshire is home to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Centre, which is where you can see the famous display team which includes one of only two remaining airworthy Lancaster bombers, a Spitfire and a Hurricane. And to the award winning Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre.
Our pick of the best places to stay in Lincolnshire are popular establishments, so we'd recommend you book early if you want to bag a bed in one of these.
The Best Places to Stay in Lincolnshire
- The Bull & Swan is an ancient coaching inn with just seven rooms in the charming market town of Stamford. The food is good and the rooms are more modern than you'd expect from the beautiful old facade. And you're on the grounds of the Burghley Estate, so it's just a short stroll to Burghley House.
- Also in Stamford, on the Burghley Estate, The William Cecil is a refurbished country house with decor that blends quirkiness and splendour. The 27 rooms are all different, but the food is consistently good.
