Larkrise Farm - Holidays

Larkrise is a working farm on the outskirts of Kirton In Lindsey.

Being ideally positioned in a beautiful part of North Lincolnshire (Kirton in Lindsey is situated half on top, and half on the side of a ridge, part of the Lincoln Cliff) the Stephenson family created a luxury holiday cottage from an 1840's barn.

At the same time they converted an area of land into a small private touring caravan and camping park. The park includes the usual facilities you would expect from a well maintained site.

Gourmet Restaurants?

Lincolnshire is also home to John Pettits Butchers who are Nationally Renowned purveyors and producers of fine meats - sausages in particular are worthy of note.

If that lot isn't enough, you can tour the countryside visiting farm shops, try the family friendly Pink Pig Farm , or visit the ostriches at Oslinc or the revamped Doddington Hall Farm Shop & Cafe. They also host lots of foodie events.

Back in the city, you can lunch at The Cheese Society, then tickle the taste buds and soak up a bit of cheer by supping some real ale at the Tap & Spile, then if you have room go for dinner at the rustic Old Bakery, they also runs occasional cookery courses.

LincsWolds.org.uk This site provides a bit more range regarding cycling ideas plus a few links to horse riding stable.

A short list of Lincolnshire Riding Stables / schools Often you can spend more time looking out for horses than vehicles.

Equestrian sports are an important part of Lincolnshire life and the county is criss crossed with many bridle paths. Some of the smaller unlisted horse 'centres' provide accompanied mounts which can be ridden across the owners fields and lands. If this idea of riding appeals to you then it is very much a case of asking around
