Relaxing Summer Weekend in Lincolnshire (33488)

Event Overview

Sadly the YHA at Woody's Top is closing down, so we have transferred our booking for this event to YHA Thurlby.

YHA Thurlby is a 15th century former village forge with a lovely lawned garden and orchard. It is located in a peaceful spot in the centre of an unspoilt Lincolnshire village. The homely former forge is full of character and has both Victorian and Georgian additions to the building - perfect for history buffs!

The main focus of the weekend will be a walk on Saturday in the surrounding area. On Sunday we may go walking elsewhere, or possibly drive to a local town ...

The Fens, Rutland Water, Belvoir Castle and Burghley House are all not far away.
