Welcome to our first newsletter of 2016 and I hope the year has got off to a good start for you. With snowdrops appearing at Gunby Hall on 5th January and Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust's first lamb of the year having been born on 7th January, one could be forgiven for thinking Spring is already here. There's so much going on in our area for our guests to look forward to this year (see below) and we've held our 2015 tariff for 2016 making your holiday with us even better value!
It's well known we are within easy reach of the award winning, golden-sanded coastal resorts of Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea and that Louth, the capital of the Wolds, is under half an hour away. But did you know Lincoln and Hull - that feature in The Telegraph's UK 10 Best City Breaks - are within commutable distance for a day trip, whilst you're staying with us too? Hull has also been named by the Rough Guide as one of the world's top 10 cities to visit in 2016, for its eight excellent museums, picturesque Old Town with cobbled streets and old-timey pubs. Hull will also take on the mantle as UK's City of Culture in 2017.
11 things to do with us in 2016
1) Valentine's Day - 14th February
Treat your loved one to some escapism in our rural idyll, either in Owl or Pheasant Cottage, for Valentine's weekend 13th & 14th February 2015. Make it even more special by taking them on a journey to one of Cleethorpe's most romantic restaurants for a 7-course dinner, with a view to-die-for at the Cleethorpes Pier's elegant 1873 Restaurant, where you can have a romantic stroll back along the boardwalk afterwards.

2) Discover Lincolnshire Weekend - 12th &13th March
Many places in Lincoln and the county will be offering discounts and free admission so don't miss out on this opportunity to save money.
5) Poppies At Lincoln Castle - 28th May - 4th September
Marking the centenary of the First World War, a stunning wave of poppies will wash over the walls of Lincoln Castle. First seen in 2014 at the Tower of London, Lincoln will be the only place in England where the iconic poppies can be seen.
Opened in Summer 2015 it is a great attraction to visit whatever the weather and the underwater journey through a fantasy Pirate World of Lost Treasure, Sunken Ships and fascinating marine life has something for all members of the family to enjoy. http://www.skegness-aquarium.uk/
