- Friendly vibe with pub food, board games and walking maps
If you're an intrepid wanderer, the knowledgeable team at The Three Horseshoes 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.
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 for planning your next route.
The team ensures its amenities are modern and well maintained; the shower and toilet block has been refitted and updated.
Open from 07/04/2020 to 01/01/2021
