Lincolnshire is a county peppered with quaint and picturesque villages. The quiet village of Grasby is one such place – a charming and quintessentially English settlement located in the Lincolnshire Woods, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With a plethora of exquisite hotels nearby, it's the ideal place to book a holiday.
Winner of the 2005 award for Village of the Year in Central England, it's hardly surprising that the village attracts holidaymakers all round the year. Grasby has everything you'd expect to find in a small English village – a friendly public house, a lively village hall and, perhaps its crowning glory, a beautiful church.
Opposite the village primary school lies Grasby's impressive church. Originally founded as an Anglican church way back in the 13th Century, the church was rebuilt in the 19th Century by the vicar at the time, who was brother to Lord Tennyson, the Poet Laureate. The church continues to hold regular services, as well as acting as a community base for the village.
