Mill Stream Barn’s situation in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds makes it an ideal base to tour the area. Listed below are just a few of the wonderful variety of activities and sights that are easily accessible from here.
On the Doorstep
Running through the grounds of the Mill House and Mill Stream Barn, the River Bain provides a beautiful habitat for all kinds of flora and fauna.
Guests are welcome to wander around the half mile or so of privately owned river frontage that forms part of the Mill’s estate. Or get your walking boots on and head out for some very picturesque walks straight from the front door.
The Viking Way runs just past the barn but you can also head off in other directions and find some special corners of the countryside very close by.
The area is also excellent for cycling, with lots of quiet country lanes and more than a few punchy little climbs to tackle! The Lindsey Trail also runs past the door, for cyclists, horse-riders and carriage drivers. We can provide safe and secure storage for your bicycles.
Explore the scenic and peaceful Wolds villages; visit Tennyson country and the local market towns of Louth and Horncastle, which are both within 15 minutes drive.
Louth is a wonderful Georgian market town, voted the best in the country by the BBC’s Countryfile and boasting a plethora of thriving independent shops, many selling the famous Lincolnshire local foods and drink. Take in the views of Louth from the tallest parish spire in Britain. Horncastle has an array of antique shops to browse.
All the local towns and many of the villages offer a wide variety of good quality restaurants and pubs. Play golf at any one of a number of varied and interesting courses close by. Cadwell Park, the famous racing circuit, is also within very easy reach, as is Market Rasen Racecourse.
The village of Woodhall Spa is situated just beyond Horncastle, with its world class golf course and wonderful old ‘picture house’, Kinema in the Woods, where cinema goers are often treated to a mini concert on the Compton Kinestra organ during the intermission.
