The small market town of Boston lies on the banks of the River Witham, in the heart of Lincolnshire, and is one of the UK's best-kept secrets. It's got some serious historical heritage, having been one the most important trading towns in the country in the Late Middle Ages. Evidence of this can be seen in the magnificent buildings, like the medieval Boston Guildhall or the network of medieval lanes, tiny narrow streets flanked by small boutique shops and restaurants. The hallmark of a good market town is, of course, the market itself and the bustling stalls in Boston are just the ticket for picking up a bargain or grabbing a bite to eat. When you stay in a bed and breakfast, don't limit yourself to just the town, though – you've also got the spectacular Lincolnshire countryside right on your doorstep.
Why stay in an expensive hotel room when you could score a unique guestroom in a homely Boston bed and breakfast at a fraction of the price? There's a fantastic selection of B&Bs to choose from, like family-run Victorian terraced homes, with just a handful of guestrooms, or swisher listed properties, that offer the perfect place to take your partner on a romantic getaway. Alternatively, nab one of the B&Bs outside the city in the Lincolnshire countryside and be close to nature and the walking trails. If you're sold on a bed and breakfast in Boston look at the listings on Expedia, which have detailed descriptions and photos to help you find the perfect place to stay. All you need to do is search by location and date, scan through the properties and book in just a few clicks. Arranging your accommodation just got a whole lot easier.
The guestrooms in Boston bed and breakfasts come in all shapes and sizes, but you can expect to find many of the amenities you might see in a hotel, like a flat-screen TV on the wall, facilities for making tea and coffee, and a big comfortable double bed wrapped in freshly pressed sheets. Some have plenty of storage for your belongings, so you can settle right in, others might have in-room desks and complimentary WiFi, so you can catch up on a few work emails or research what you're going to do on your weekend break. All but the most budget bed and breakfasts will have an ensuite bathroom, perhaps with a separate shower unit and tub. You'll find other features, too, like free parking spots for your car or family-sized rooms, so you can bring the kids along. Take some time to talk with the owners, who are often more than happy to help you plan your break. Come daybreak, you can head downstairs to the dining room to enjoy a full English breakfast, or a lighter option, like pastries and fruit. If you're looking for a completely different type of holiday, consider booking a few nights in the decadent, fun-loving city of Amsterdam, instead.
When it comes to things to do near your Boston bed and breakfast, you won't be disappointed. A good introduction is the Guildhall Museum, where you'll discover the history of the city. There, you can catch a glimpse of the cells in which the Pilgrim Fathers were imprisoned in the early 17th century, after they tried to escape to America, and see the Pilgrim Fathers Memorial. Then there's Fydell House, one of the grandest properties in the city, and Pescod Hall, once home to a family of wool merchants. If you're interested in the arts, don't miss scoring tickets for one of the performances at the Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, which is housed in a medieval friary, or catching one of the performances at the Gliderdrome.
