THE AREA - Walking and Cycling
This is a fantastic base for walking, there are many panoramic walks in the area including the Viking Way – we are keen walkers and can supply maps, walking books and ideas! Cycling is another favourite activity for our guests and there are plenty of quiet country lanes to explore.
Market Rasen was known as East Rasen until the 13th century when two fairs were held each year and a weekly market started. The village grew into a town and assumed the name Market Rasen. Today the town holds weekly markets on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and the Farmers' Market is held on the first Tuesday of the month.
Today local produce and speciality food is easily acquired in the town and surrounding villages - local bakers, butchers and tearooms, even handmade ice cream, chocolates and truffles. The varied selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs makes the town an ideal base for holidays.
Louth is a charming Wolds market town just twenty-minutes drive from East Farm. This traditional town has a bustling centre with market days on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, alongside the open-air auction 'on the Stones' every Wednesday afternoon. There is a variety of local speciality food shops that make Lincolnshire sausages, plum bread, stuffed chine, and sell Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese and butter, locally produced fruit, vegetables, fish and bread.
The town is watched over by the breath-taking church of St James's with its spire soaring to a height of 295 feet, the tallest parish church in the country.
There are many other things to visit in the town including the Museum, Navigation Warehouse and an excellent variety of pubs. The whole family will enjoy a night out at the Riverhead Theatre or at the multi-screen cinema.
This unspoilt town has many connections with historical events, such as the Lincolnshire Uprising, and with those who have made history including Alfred, Lord Tennyson, famous Poet Laureate and Captain John Smith whose life was saved by the Indian Princess Pocahontas.
The nearby impressive City of LINCOLN is steeped in 2,000 years of history, as you wander around you will see evidence of both Roman and Medieval periods as well as notable architecture left by the Tudors and Georgians. One of Europe's finest cathedrals is in Lincoln and sits on part of the site of a first-century Roman fortress high on the hill.
Close by is the Norman Castle built by William the Conqueror on the site of the former Roman fortress which dates from 1068. Walk along the walls of the Castle and enjoy the wonderful views across this handsome City.
