Katie's Corner is located within the Lincolnshire Wolds which is a nationally important and cherished landscape. It was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1973.
This wonderful landscape has been moulded through the Ice Ages and now offers some of the most wonderful scenic views with rolling chalk hills and intimate valleys with sandstone and clay that underlie this attractive landscape.
This part of Lincolnshire is rich in nature and we treasure the heritage that both time and our ancestors have left to us. Perfect for nature lovers, sport lovers, and not forgetting, the traditional family fun of our coastal resorts, there really is something for everyone.
There are several market towns in the area that offer a variety of places to visit which together with the attractive landscape makes the Wolds an ideal place to visit. Somersby which is just 2 miles from Greetham Retreat, is made up of a few houses clustering around the church where Dr George Clayton Tennyson, Alfred Tennysons father, was rector. Somersby Rectory, across the lane from the church and where the eleven Tennyson children grew up, is now a private house.
The Wolds market towns near to Greetham Retreat include Horncastle, with some 20 antique shops, as well as Alford, Louth and Spilsby offer excellent starting and stopping-off places when exploring the area.
The impressive City of Lincoln, just 25 miles away, is steeped in 2,000 years of history with evidence of both Roman and Medieval periods as well as notable architecture left by the Tudors and Georgians. One of Europe's finest cathedrals is in Lincoln and sits on part of the site of a 1st century Roman fortress high on the hill. Close by is the Norman Castle built by William the Conqueror on the site of the former Roman fortress, which dates from 1068. Walk along the walls of the Castle and enjoy the wonderful views across this handsome City.
Keen golfers will want to enjoy playing some of the nearby golf courses, particularly the two magnificent courses at Woodhall Spa, the home of English golf, just 10 miles away.
