Discover the wonders of South Kesteven, the southern gateway to Lincolnshire.

Sitting at the south west corner of Lincolnshire, South Kesteven is bursting with history and heritage, famous castles and historic houses, amazing places to stay, picturesque villages, wonderful walks and cycle trails, visitor attractions for all ages, and fine stone towns such as Grantham and Stamford.

Where else can you find a scarecrow festival, a centuries old sheep fair, wonderful open gardens, an artisan chocolatier, rich aviation heritage, the birthplace of the world’s greatest scientist Sir Isaac Newton and the venue of an international horse trials? So many places of intrigue await you…

South Kesteven is renowned for special places to enjoy quality food from local produce and beers from micro-breweries.  Ancient inns, restaurants, charming tearooms and family friendly venues will whet your appetite. Farm shops and food & drink festivals will entice you further.

Walks and cycle trails for all abilities enable you to enjoy town and country – from bluebell woods and forest sculpture trails to the Viking Way and countryside routes. Many rural churches en route are open and offer a welcome to visitors – and the dreaming spires in Stamford and Grantham are legendary.

Stay awhile in one of the many accommodation options – from a four poster bed in a splendid hotel or golf resort to unique self-catering such as a boutique hayloft or a farm wigwam, riverside camping and B&B locations to make you smile.

The close proximity of the A1 gives easy access to the area from north and south with excellent east to west access. By rail, Grantham itself is just one hour from London.

South Kesteven is charmingly English, with stunning scenery and fascinating places to visit and stay.  Your hosts await, with a warm welcome guaranteed.
