There are Nature Reserves close by at Gibraltar Point, Theddlethorpe Dunes and Snipe Dales and you can play golf nearby at the world renowned Hotchkin Course at Woodhall Spa.

The historic city of Lincoln with its 1200 year old Cathedral and Castle is only 35 minutes drive from the pub,  while the working windmills at Alford and Burgh-le-Marsh and the working watermill at  Alvingham are all within easy reach by road.
