Hollies Country Cottages
These charming self-catering country cottages are set in the peaceful surroundings of Burgh le Marsh in Lincolnshire's Poacher Country, and yet are only five miles from the seaside resort of Skegness.
Built in Georgian style from old brick and pantiles recovered from 17th barns, the cottages overlook the old grazing marsh with wonderful views of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The handsome and interesting Church of St Peter and St Paul's can be seen for miles around and the sound of its bells reputedly saved the lives of a ship's crew at a time when the coastline was much closer. The church clock-face warns 'Watch and pray for ye know not when the time is'.
Another stunning feature on the horizon is Dobson's Mill, built by Sam Oxley in 1813; the view of the five giant sails gently turning in the breeze is truly a magnificent sight.
For evening meals the nearby Windmill Restauarant is well worth a visit.
There are plenty of footpaths on which to explore the countryside and within only ten minutes walk you will discover a four-acre coarse fishing lake at which to enjoy a peaceful morning's fishing. Those who also enjoy cycling, horse riding, fly-fishing, golf and bowls are also well catered for nearby.
This part of Lincolnshire's Poacher Country is a treasure trove of pretty hamlets and charming market towns with buzzing atmospheres; Spilsby, Louth, Wainfleet All Saints and Horncastle. Enjoy a visit to one of the coastal Nature Reserves including the visitor centre at Gibraltar Point.
The Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, encompasses Tennyson's Country where the great Poet Laureate was born and spent his childhood. A visit to the imposing City of Lincoln with the awe-inspiring Cathedral and the port of Boston with its famous 'Stump' is also a must for the visitor to the area.
