“We've just spent 2 weeks in Liz and Richard lovely house in Boston. It's a nice area to visit with lots of things to do: the sea side is not far away, Lincoln is beautiful, Stamford. Liz and Richard have lots of books about Lincolnshire, walks.... you're never get bored!!! They have been very kind to us, they are very nice people, and our house was perfect when we came back home. If you want to visit this side of England, don't hesitate, go to Boston!!!”
Richard's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Richard and Liz have a very cosy and comfortable home. It is also safe and secure. Liz and Richard equipped with more than enough of everything we needed for daily activities plus lots of information and guides relating to the town, the district and the county. They also have an interesting collection of art, books, magazines and movies for the guests' pleasure. It was obvious that they wanted us to enjoy our time in their home. Although off the better known Tourist routes, the area had its own charms. We especially liked the uniqueness of the fens and enjoyed may walks (in various weathers!) viewing the wildlife and the landscape. The location was also quite convenient to other parts of England for road trips. Our stay was three months and we used the close access to Stansted Airport for short trips to European mainland. Boston has a rich history that hasn 't yet been fully exploited by tourism. I recall an interview on BBC while we were there, where an academic said that ther were arguably more Tudor buildings in Boston that in York, but there is not the same level of promotion behind it. Ii would recommend the local BBC radio as a source of information of "what's on" alongside it entertainment value. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We really wouldn't mind doing it again!!”
Where is it?
Windmills, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight; Lincoln Cathedral (one of the finest medieval buildings in Europe) which has one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta on display. Stamford (one of the finest stone towns in England) and nearby Burghley House. The Lincolnshire Wolds (an area of outstanding natural beauty. All wonderful things to discover in the surrounding area. Fishtoft itself is a small village with a cosy pub about 3 miles from the centre of the historic market town of Boston. The town is famous for it's St Botolph's church with it's 271' tower (the tallest non-cathedral church tower in the world) known as 'The Stump'. It is also the place from which the 'Pilgrim Fathers' set sail for their new life in America in 1608. We have some wonderful National Cycle trails (two cycles included in exchange) and it's not necessary to be terribly fit as it is quite flat around here. If you fancy something more strenuous then The Peak District National Park is only a couple of hours away. There is a regular bus service into Boston from Fishtoft and rail links from Boston to London, the Midlands and the North. Major international airports - Heathrow 130 miles/Birmingham 82 miles and for European and internal flights Stansted 75 miles - East Midlands 70 miles - Humberside 56 miles. London 120miles.
