- Countryside pub in spectacular setting among the Lincolnshire Wolds
- Walker's paradise with easy access to trails including the Viking Way
- Friendly vibe with pub food, board games and walking maps
If you're an intrepid wanderer, the knowledgeable team at The Three Horseshoes Public House near Louth in Lincolnshire reckons a foray onto the Viking Way is a must. How lucky, then, that this fab and historic path, along the route of the Norse invaders of yesteryear, can be accessed a short drive from the pub – one of many paths in the region for you to tramp.
If you're not quite up for traversing the full length of the Way from a Three Horseshoes stay (it runs for 147 miles from the Humber Bridge in north Lincs to Oakham in Rutland), several more strolling and hiking paths are around this Lincolnshire Wolds locale to try instead.
There's the stunning setting of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Beauty, or you could wander the Silver Lincs Way to Grimsby from nearby Louth, or tackle the Macmillan Way, Lindsey Way and the tastily-named Gingerbread Way, just to start you off. Not into walkies? Trot along to days out at Cadwell Park or Market Rasen Racecourse, both within easy reach.
Back at base, the site promotes a relaxed atmosphere where guests are welcome to have a campfire by their pitch and chill out among the handsome views. (Firepits, wood and kindling are available to buy, so please don't bring your own.)
A friendly atmosphere also prevails in the pub, where you can tuck into good food and real ales, or settle in with the table and board games on a rainy day. Plenty of walking leaflets and maps are here too so you can plan your next route.
The team ensures its amenities are modern and well maintained; the shower and toilet block was refitted and updated during the winter. There's also a washing-up area, wifi and chemical disposal.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

This land is made for walking… recommended as well as the Viking Way are the 76 miles of the Lincs Wold Way, meandering around the best of the area's spectacular scenery; the 96-mile Wolds trail of the Lindsey Loop, and the easy three-mile amble of the Spa Trail, a family-friendly and wheelchair/buggy-accessible path along the banks of the Horncastle Canal. The 69-mile route of the nearby Lindsey Trail is also suitable for cycling and horse riding.
Less than 10 minutes' drive away is the motor racing circuit of Cadwell Park, with its many car and bike events throughout the year including the super-bikes weekend over the August bank holiday. Market Rasen Racecourse and its active racing calendar is about 20 minutes away by car.
The best-known nearby town is Louth, a busy Lincolnshire Wolds market town with independent shops, pubs, restaurants and award-wining butchers and grocers. If you still yearn for a walk, follow the canal towpath for the scenic hike along to Tetney Lock, or drive just outside town to the six acres of the Rushmoor Country Park farm park.
For a city day out, visit the county town of Lincoln (40 minutes' drive) with its fine cathedral and castle, or head to the coast a scenic 30-minute drive away. Take your pick from one of the smaller coastal villages, to Skegness with its large and loud attractions, or visit the peaceful and famed Donna Nook Nature Reserve just outside town.
