If you are looking to explore Lincolnshire, the most obvious place to base yourself is the old and relaxed city of Lincoln.

The cathedral dominates the city vista and is a popular attraction alongside the castle which is home to one of the 4 remaining copies of the Magna Carta.  As Lincoln was once a Roman City you will find bits of history scattered across the City but most of the interesting areas to tourists is in the Uphill area including the best of the pubs and restaurants.  Lincoln is a great base to explore Lincolnshire with the Wolds and the Coast all being within easy reach.

If you are looking for a comfortable base for your visit then the Gables Guest House on the outskirts of Lincoln, and also only 10 minutes from Newark at the A1, is perfect. 4 star accommodation, with six quality en-suite bedrooms, all individually decorated and thoughtfully equipped and free Wi Fi internet access.  Gables Guest House has an a-la-carte breakfast menu which is served at individual tables in the attractive dining room.
