 In Blog

Apart from Lincolnshire being home to Ashlin Farms Barns, there are several other reasons why you would enjoy taking your next holiday in Lincolnshire.

Imagine experiencing a holiday with complete freedom, ease when travelling and staying somewhere that feels like a home from home. Well, this could be your reality.

We have identified and selected a handful of the many benefits that come with holidaying in the UK and in particular Lincolnshire.

No Stress

How stressful is it when your flight gets delayed, you can’t find your bags, or maybe you have to leave your furry friend at home? Well fear not, as by booking a holiday in the UK you can take your own transport and much to your delight, you can pack as much as you would like with no baggage allowance.

There is much less fuss involved when holidaying in the UK. Passports and foreign currency aren’t required and there is no need to organise transport to an airport or book and pay extra for parking. You can take a more laid back, leisurely approach to travelling to your destination without worrying about time constraints.

There Are Many Things To Do In Lincolnshire, Whatever The Weather

The UK has enjoyed some hot summers over the years. If you are fortunate with the weather, there are many beaches in Lincolnshire, so pack your bucket and spade and have a great day out at the seaside. However, if the weather happens to be less pleasant, there are an abundance of indoor attractions to visit in Lincolnshire.

Lincolnshire is steeped in history and we have plenty of quaint tea shops, quirky antique shops, bookshops and boutique shops if you are just wanting to take a leisurely stroll around our city, towns and villages.

Visit Lincoln Castle with its Victorian Prison and Magna Carta. Lincoln Castle is now the only place in the world where an original 1215 Magna Carta and 1217 Charter of the Forest can be seen side by side.

Lincoln Cathedral is one of the finest gothic buildings in Europe, with its intricate design inside and stunning views from the roof and tower, it is well worth a visit.

Lincoln’s International Bomber Command Centre includes the UK’s tallest war memorial. The visitor centre, a state of the art exhibition tells the 3 themes of the project; recognition, remembrance and reconciliation.

Visit Doddington Hall & Gardens, a fine Elizabethan Mansion with over 400 years of unbroken family occupation. It also has its own award-winning farm shop and café.

Hobbies are enjoyed by many and are often used as a method of relaxation. Ashlin Farm Barns is set in the countryside, yet still only 5 miles from the city centre of Lincoln.

There is no need to carry your heavy equipment through the airport nor carry the weight that comes with taking your expensive equipment abroad.

You may fish without charge at our lake, making us perfect for fishing holidays. There are also many great locations in Lincolnshire for day ticket fishing.

Moving Around – Great for Short Breaks or Midweek Breaks

When enjoying a break on the home soil that is the UK, spontaneity is common. Why not book a series of short breaks and explore what the country has to offer? Here at Ashlin Farm Barns, we provide both long and short breaks meaning that there is flexibility if you are wanting to hop around the country. A short or midweek break can also give you that perfect opportunity to recharge your batteries and to spend quality time with friends or family. You may find you have little time to fit in a break over the summer holidays and want to also spend some time at home, so a mid-week or short break with a short travelling time could be the perfect fit for you.

Furry Friends – Dog Friendly

Here at Ashlin Farm Barns, we understand that your dogs are part of your family, meaning you are likely to miss them if leaving them behind. So, here at Ashlin Farm Barns, 2 of our 4 barns are pet-friendly. So why not check out our 2 pet-friendly barns, Holly Tree Barn and Field Maple Barn, to give your 4-legged friend a holiday to remember too.
