Stop Press - Owl Cottage available 23-27th May

Owl Cottage is now available 23rd-27th May due to a late cancellation.  May is one of the best times to see Lincolnshire and there is so much on (Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival, Grand Medieval Joust at Lincoln Castle, Alford Craft Market and the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway Teddy Bear Weekend to name but a few) it would be a shame to miss out - book now! 

Owl gets Gold Award

At the end of April we were visited by one of VisitEngland's professional quality assessors, for our annual review of the quality of our facilities, services and hospitality provided.  This was the first assessment for Owl Cottage and I'm delighted to advise it has achieved a Three Star Self Catering rating with a Gold Accolade.  Pheasant Cottage continues to achieve a Three Star Self Catering rating too.

A free & most exciting, innovative outdoor art festival

The SO Festival is returning again to East Lincolnshire from 25th June to 5th July and has become a must visit for locals and visitors to the area alike.  It is aimed at a family audience and is hailed as one of the most exciting and innovative outdoor art festivals in the UK.  The theme is inspired by traditional entertainment and highlights include a new show 'Circus Heroes'. You will also be able to immerse yourself in the fictional world of Alice in Wonderland.
The British Cycling National Time Trial Championships will mark the opening of the festival at the scenic Cadwell Park Motor Racing Circuit.  It will then visit Horncastle, Louth, Alford, Woodhall Spa, Mablethorpe and Spilsby before finishing in Skegness for a three-day spectacular.  All locations are within easy reach of our cottages.  Entry and all events are free (except the British Cycling Championships and Lincolnshire School Prom).  Check out the full the full festival programme at http://www.sofestival.org/article/3089/2015-Programme

Anyone for Volleyball?

Volleyball England will be bringing their national beach tour to the Central Beach in Skegness on 13th & 14th June.  There will be 100+ high profile players in an action packed tournament in a bid to be crowned Skegness Champions (this includes mens, womens and juniors).  A great chance to watch this fantastic sport with your family and to try your hand at it on the 'Go Spike' Court - all free of charge.
