Beautiful modern property centrally located and a few minutes away from the historic quarter of Lincoln. A safe designated car parking space is a particularly appealing feature for anyone who has concerns about car safety and it is possible to spend a short break without further need for driving.
The Cathedral is a must see, the Castle worth visiting (currently this is being upgraded and subject to renovation) and Steep Hill will certainly test your fitness.
Lincoln is a hidden gem and somewhere that I would recommend visiting. York and Chester seem to have better PR but Lincoln is their equal. There is nowhere better I can think of to stay when visiting Lincoln than The Beehive, hope to be back.
We (family of 3, child aged 6) spend a lovely 3 days at the Beehive in Lincoln. We could not have found a quieter place, more central with only in 2mins walking distance from the Castle and Cathedral square. the house is stunning with a very modern design, light, open and airy through the glass-walled staircase that goes through from bottom to top. We have not missed a thing during our stay. The house has three floors, smartly separated in two private areas one bedroom with bathroom at the ground floor and the same at the top, and the living room and kitchen in the middle so you can meet half way, if travelling with two couples or a family of 4. It would also work for business people, travelling together, sharing the house. We stayed in the master bedroom, which has a very large & super-comfy bed and a spacious wardrobe, the bathrooms are top-notch, modern and spotless. In the Kitchen we found all necessary equipment to cock a meal (fridge, hob, oven, microwave) and easily clean (dishwasher) (apart from the food of course).
Lincoln is a beautiful town for a short stay or a holiday week as there is lots to do in and around the town. You can hire bikes, go on boat trips or even drive up to the beach, if you stay longer, but even only in town there is enough to see and do for 3-4 days in good and bad weather, i.e. outdoor events, walks in parks with stunning views and museums and art collections. We loved the Collection, as it has a fab play room for youngsters, where they can dress up, read about art and history and make things. Also worth a visit the Museum of Lincolnshire Life were they have created show rooms of how people lived, worked and learned in Victorian times and they also have an impressive transport collection. Both have free entrance.
Must have for foodies before going out is Olé Olé in the old town quarter, a great Spanish Tapas bar with good size yummy tapas dishes, wine and very friendly service people incl. the owner who comes out to greet and chat with his guests. Book early ideally a week ahead, it's always busy.
We are definitely planning to come back to explore more of this town.
