The list of reasons to visit Lincolnshire on your holidays is a long one. From its wealth of luxurious hotels to its variety of first-rate stately homes, there really is something for everyone. One of the chief motivations for many who visit is the long stretch of coastline that overlooks the North Sea.
While some holidaymakers are keen to explore the untouched nature reserves of Gilbraltar Point and Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes National Nature Reserve, the majority of tourists heading to the Lincolnshire coast opt for the famous seaside resort of Skegness.
An Iconic Seaside Resort
The United Kingdom does well for iconic seaside resorts. The South coast boasts Bournemouth and Brighton. The West coast is home to Blackpool and Weston-super-Mare. For the East coast, Skegness is undoubtedly the stand-out seaside destination, and Lincolnshire is justifiably proud of their favourite seaside resort.
The most obviously enticing attractions at Skegness are the beach and pier. The beach is well served by facilities – from cafés and restaurants to donkey rides and lifeguards. The pier is a hub for entertainment, offering a variety of playgrounds, games and places to eat and drink.
Lincolnshire's Finest Hotels
As you'd expect from one of the county's flagship holiday destinations, Skegness is home to some of the most spectacular hotels in Lincolnshire.
If you want to get as close to the action as possible, the Pier View Hotel and Apartments is a sound choice. As the name suggests, the property is ideally located, just a stone's throw from the lively beach front. Self-catering options are available and there's free WiFi throughout – perfect for families.
It's not only the beach which brings tourists to Skegness, however. The Best Western North Shore Hotel and Golf Club offers a slightly different way to enjoy the seafront location, with a full 18-hole golf course on-site.
A Place To Unwind
There may be a veritable feast of activities in Skegness itself, but the seaside town also operates as a hub from which to visit the more peaceful parts of Lincolnshire. If you have access to a car then you have no end of superb options. The nearby coast is punctuated by stunning nature reserves, and the surrounding countryside is home to a wealth of spectacular country homes and castles.
