Visiting Lincolnshire and if you’re a National trust member, there are at least four great visitor attractions and Greetham Retreats luxury 4 star gold award self catering holiday cottages are perfectly located for visiting these splendid attractions and much more too.
Gunby Hall, a homely country house dated 1700 set in Victorian walled gardens at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, is only 20 minutes away from Greetham Retreat and well worth a visit.
Tattershall Castle, medieval brick castle rising dramatically above the Lincolnshire countryside. Have fun exploring the six floors of this rare red brick medieval castle built by Ralph Cromwell, Lord Treasurer of England and one of the most powerful men in the country.
Belton House, near Grantham, the ‘perfect’ English country house estate and well worth a visit.
This classic 17th century English country house is set in delightful gardens with a magnificent deer park. Perfect symmetry, opulent décor, fine furnishings and Brownlow family portraits give Belton both grandeur and a more intimate feel while the ‘Below Stairs’ tours give fascinating insights into how Belton’s servants lived and worked in the 1900s.
Woolsthorpe Manor, Birthplace and family home of Sir Isaac Newton and within easy reach of Greetham Retreat.
The Manor House, his family home, is furnished as a 17th-century farmhouse might have been at this time. You can still see the famous apple tree that inspired his thoughts on gravity from the bedroom window, and explore some of his ideas for yourself in the Science Discovery Centre.
