Lut Recommends

Whatever the weather, there's always something to experience.

Now, after coming and living here for 15 years, these are places I love. Of course there’s lots more for everybody’s interest.

Lincoln Cathedral

Discover the Ancient City of Lincoln

I feel so blessed to live under the wings of one of the most beautiful and imposing cathedrals in the world. The Lincoln Cathedral, The #CathedralWorldCup Winner in a Twitter voting campaign in 2017. Just walk in to feel the special atmosphere or pick one of the different guided tours, definitely worth doing!

The roof tour is great and if you fancy a very special one, book a 'Through the lens' photo walk that takes you to places in the Cathedral not open for public! Visit the website Though The Lens, for lots of other photowalks I enjoyed!

From concerts to musicals - There’s lots of things going on the whole year round. Have a look at Lincoln Cathedral to find an event to your interest. Some need booking well ahead!

A good excuse to visit Lut’s B & B!

Lincoln Castle

Explore Lincoln's famous Castle

With a combined ticket, you can visit Lincoln Castle too. Commissioned by William the Conqueror in 1068, the castle has stood at the top the hill and protected the city for almost 1000 years. The views from a walk round the Medieval Walls, the Victorian Prison Experience, and the underground Magna Carta Vault made it the UK’s most popular castle in a 2017 vote.

Or come for one of the Castle-linked events - film, concert or a special workshop...

The Castle and Cathedral area is so beautiful and has been the background for some famous films. In the area there’s also the Medieval Palace to explore which belongs to English Heritage.

The combined Cathedral/Castle tickets can be used again in the next half a year.

A good excuse to visit Lut’s B & B again!

Walks for Nature Lovers and Bird Watchers

Walks for Nature Lovers & Bird Watchers

Lincolnshire is quite ‘flat’ which means walks are very accessible.

Start from our doorstep in a fancy pair of boots from my Wellie Collection and off you go for my Swan Walk to say hello to 'my' swans. They are there most of the time. You can spot Lincoln Cathedral standing majestically in the distance.

Or you can pick a walk from the walking information we provide you: ‘Stepping Out Walks', 'Pub Walks', 'Drive and Stroll in Lincolnshire' & 'The Viking Way'. Leaving from The Pyewipe Inn in the area you can even walk along the river right into Lincoln Centre.

Whisby Nature Park is only a 5 minute drive away from here. From a well-developed education center (with a playground for children) you can start a walk of your choice around the lakes. The hard-surfaced walking paths are accessible for everybody including, prams, buggies and wheelchairs. Whisby is popular and a great place to spot lots of different kinds of birds.

Doddington Hall

Doddington Hall - My Favourite Place!

…only 10 minutes away and lots of nice things to see and do!

Visit the house and informal gardens at weekends, stroll through the kitchen garden, buy tasty food in the award winning farm shop. You can have a drink & a snack in the nice coffee/teahouse or enjoy a fine meal from the seasonal kitchen garden produce in one of the best restaurants in the area, in my opinion. If you fancy buying a real English country-style outfit or some nice home decoration, enjoy the top-quality shop 'Indiana Jones'.

If you want to be more active, pick one of their nice walks on and around their grounds or rent a bike of your choice in the biggest bike shop in Lincolnshire, which is on site, and go and discover the area.

There are events the whole year round at Doddington Hall. I enjoyed Flower Workshops with Rachel, the florist. I'm very happy to say she has started giving workshops at Lut’s B & B. There’s more on their workshop program that you might like, so have a look. A nice reason for a stay at Lut’s B & B.

Easton Walled Gardens

Explore Lincolnshire Countryside

A route I enjoy, whatever the season, is the back road to Easton Walled Gardens. It’s a 45 minute scenic drive through beautiful rolling Lincolnshire countryside, passing through picturesque villages.

Easton Walled Gardens nestle in a beautiful, rolling valley. The Gardens are being developed by the Cholmeley family who have owned them for over 400 years.

You can view the magnificent gardens nearly the whole year round from Snowdrop Time to Halloween with all year round events to make it a special visit. You can also just take the Woodland Walk or walk along the river or just stroll through the Flower Garden. If you like Sweet Peas, they’ve got hundreds of kinds. The ‘Sweet Pea Week’ at the beginning of July is one of their highlights. There is a beautiful Garden Shop and, of course, a Teahouse to have a scone or nice light lunch.

Some of the bulbs were planted by me, as I volunteered at the Gardens before I started the B & B - Don’t the flowers look beautiful?

Burghley House

Fancy a Day Trip?

For those who would like to stay a bit longer at Lut’s B & B, or don’t mind driving a bit further.

You can continue the back road from Easton to visit Stamford, a beautiful old town built with Lincolnshire Limestone and with lots of history & beautiful shops. Also worth visiting is the country house and gardens of Burghley just two minutes from Stamford.

Burghley Palace, is England's greatest Elizabethan House where there’s lots to see and do. You can walk through the Gardens, visit the House, watch a film on a nice Summer evening, enjoy their Food Market or visit their Christmas Fair.

National Trust owned Belton House is not too far away. Yo can watch the Firework Competition on a nice summer day (don’t forget a picnic, I can lend you my English picnic ware). If you have children with you, Belvoir Castle has a new wooden Adventure Playground which will make a nice day out.

Newark Castle

Antique Lovers

Lincoln has a number of antique and vintage shops.

However, just a twenty minute drive away is Newark-on-Trent, known for holding the biggest Antique Fairs in Europe. These are held on Newark Showground four times a year.

You will also find a lot of good antique shops in the center of this historic market town, which has one of the finest Georgian market squares in the UK.

It’s history is interesting with a riverside castle and two museums.
