Attractions - The Old Rectory at Stewton

CADWELL PARK CIRCUIT - 5.9 MILES Cadwell Park is one of Britain's oldest racing circuits and is used for motorcycle racing, car racing and track days. It is one of the most challenging circuits and is probably best known for the August Bank Holiday British Superbikes event, which attracts up to 30,000 spectators. Many of our guests go to Cadwell Park. They stay here because we have safe, off-road parking for bikes, cars and trailers and we do early breakfasts. We are only about ten minutes from the track and only ten minutes from Louth, where there are many places to eat.

DONNA NOOK SEALS - 13 miles Over the last few years, the birth of seal pups at Donna Nook, a twenty minute drive from Stewton, across the Marshes, has attracted thousands of visitors to the area in November and December. Well over 1,000 pups are born there every year and are easily seen from the well-organised walkways. There is plenty of parking and a visit to what is the largest colony of grey seals in England is a wonderful experience.

ANTIQUING Horncastle is a charming market town 14 miles from Louth. Its unique attraction is the number of antique centres, antiques shops and bric a brac shops which make the town a must see place for visitors. Just over 20 miles away is Hemswell Cliff, a former R.A.F. station, now used to house the biggest permanent display of antiques and collectables in Europe. A visit on Sunday has the added bonus of a massive car boot sale on the site. For really serious collectors, the tri-monthly antique fairs at Swinderby and Newark are a must.

LOUTH - 2.5 MILES The first sign of Louth, from all points of the compass, is the Spire of St. James Church, the highest Anglican parish church spire in the country. The church was the site of the start of The Pilgrimage of Grace, a protest over the confiscation of church goods by the king. The rector of Louth was hanged, drawn and quartered for his pains. Louth has many specialist shops, good restaurants, interesting pubs, fine pork butchers and a market on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. This small, characterful town - "The Capital of the Wolds" - has some wonderful facades and interesting buildings, a lovely museum and the feeling of being in a time capsule. Well worth a visit.

THE WOLDS - 2 miles These small hills are what make this largely undiscovered part of Britain unique. You will not find here the black-soiled flatlands of the sprout and cabbage fields of the Boston - Spalding area of the county. On the drive from Boston to Louth you come up the escarpment into a different landscape. Here are small villages in hollows and valleys, clumps of trees on hilltops,massive fields stretching almost as far as the eye can see. Lincolnshire's massive skies open up before you. At night, there is so little light pollution, the sky is filled with stars. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is ideal for walking, cycling and touring. A trip out to Tennyson's birthplace and lunch in a village pub can be a memorable experience.

THE COAST - 7 MILES Skegness, Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes are probably Lincolnshire coastal area's best known places, but there is so much more to experience in an area which has a wilderness all its own. All along the coast, there are bird sanctuaries, some very civilised with paths and and notices, some much more natural, with rough duneland, rabbit warrens, spiky bushes and thousands of birds. It is possible to drive up lanes from the coast road and park and then enjoy a walk through superb coastal scenery. The beaches vary, from sandy, child - friendly ones to expanses of sand, stones and oyster shells, stretching almost a mile out to the sea. A natural wilderness rarely seen any longer around our shores.
