The Lincolnshire landscape is made for cycling and rambling – quiet country lanes with open vistas, the gently rolling Lincolnshire Wolds and Vales, the waterways, ancient bridleways and tracks…
Meander through the Humber Bridge Country Park Nature Reserve which is a haven for people and wildlife set amongst woods, meadows, ponds and cliffs. The tree covered chalk terraces of the old chalk quarry offer dramatic views over the River Humber and towering Humber Bridge. The 21-hectare reserve is recognised as a Regionally Important Geological Site and supports a wide and varied range of wildlife with over 20 species of butterfly and an important population of great crested newts has made the ponds their home.
The hotel is situated at the start of the Viking Way, which is a long distance footpath which starts on the banks of the Humber in the north and winds its way through Lincolnshire to finish on the shores of Rutland Water, a total of 235km (147 miles). The route, perfect for ramblers and cyclists alike, passes through the Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the market town of Horncastle, the Lincolnshire Limewoods, the City of Lincoln, the southern Lincolnshire Edge and the Kesteven Uplands before entering Leicestershire and Rutland.
They are also in the heart of the Far Ings National Nature Reserve & Visitor Centre managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. Discover the wildlife of the south Humber Bank; the Freshwater clay pits and reedbeds, meadow and hawthorn scrub are rich in flora and fauna. The range of birds includes reedbed specialists and rarities. The Reserve offers excellent birdwatching facilities, events and educational opportunities and the Visitor centre boasts stunning views across the estuary and pits.
