Great Things to do at the Petwood
Active Breaks -
Enjoy a bike ride along the railway line, a moderate ride (I've done many times with my daughter on the back), with beautiful scenery and a chance to see Historic Town Horncastle. Enjoy lunch and a drink at the many pubs in town before you start your journey back. Bikes can be hired at Bainland Country Park.
Lincolnshire has a variety of attractions ranging from beautiful countryside walks to rich historical sites. Some of the following suggestions might be of interest for planning your visit.
Historic places of interest
Lincoln Cathedral - Towering above Lincoln, this is one of the finest medieval buildings in Europe and is a must-see attraction when visiting Lincolnshire.
Woodhall Spa places of interest
Kinema in the Woods - the former Petwood cricket pavilion converted into a cinema in the 1920s. Even today films break for an intermission and a Compton Kinestra Organ emerges from under the stage. Experience this very special attraction of Woodhall Spa and find a list of films and matinee and evening showing times from Reception.
Aviation Heritage places of interest
Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre at RAF Coningsby - Operating a Lancaster, five Spitfires, two Hurricanes, two Chipmunks and a Dakota, this living and breathing tribute is not to be missed.
See Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire for more detailed information on the enormous number of aviation sites and visitor attractions.
For the foodies
If visiting Lincoln for the day, try The Cheese Society for a delicious Select Lincolnshire lunch. It is very popular and so expect a short wait for a table or arrive early! Once you have discovered your new favourite cheese you can even order online to have it delivered to your home. What could be better?
Doddington Hall café also makes a tasty stop with a range of lunch items and homemade cakes, not to mention a fabulous Farm Shop showcasing Select Lincolnshire produce.
