There’s lots of things to do in North Lincolnshire, and if you want to venture further afield, we are close to the A15 and M180 motorway as well the Humber Bridge, which takes you to East Yorkshire and beyond. A selection of local attractions and activities are:
Humberside Airport, Kirmington – Lincolnshire’s only International Airport. We are only 1 mile away, and lots of our guests prefer our home-from-home approach to airport hotels. Humberside Airport flies daily to Amsterdam (Schipol) and numerous tourist destinations in the Summer. Eastern Airways also domestically every day.
Marrowbone and Cleaver Pub, Kirmington – 1 mile from us and they serve excellent food! The pub is owned by legendary motorbike racer and TV personality Guy Martin. Ask us about our Dinner, B&B offer in conjunction with them.
Cadwell Park Circuit, Cadwell, Louth – Lincolnshire’s only racing track, and one of the UK’s most loved. We are a short drive away from the Wold’s circuit – located en-route, just off the A18
Blyton Park, Gainsborough – local driving experience centre, also hosts rallycross and other motor events.
Skydive Hibaldstow – for you thrill seekers out there, you can skydive just 10 minutes away from Croxton House.
Market Rasen Racecourse, Market Rasen – Lincolnshire’s only National Hunt race track – its a local favourite and is a great day out.
The Deep, Hull – Only a 25 minute drive from us, this fantastic Aquarium is a must see.
Thornton Abbey & Gatehouse, Thornton Abbey – Only a 10 minute drive from Croxton House, these ruins are considered to be one of the finest in the country. An English Heritage site, you can even have a picnic in the grounds.
Water’s Edge Country Park & Visitor Centre, Barton Upon Humber – This local centre for wildlife and events is great for family days out and best of all, its free.
Pink Pig Farm – local farm shop, kids adventure playgrounds and working farm. Pink Pig also has a great cafe which serves their own produce. A must visit!
Lincoln Cathedral and Castle – construction on the Cathedral started in 1072 and was once the tallest building in the world. The Castle holds a copy of the Magna Carta. Both are well worth a visit when visiting the area.
The VIking Way – is a 147 mile way marked walking route that stretches from the banks of the River Humber, through Lincoln and ends in Rutland. Croxton House is located a short distance from the route.
St John the Evangelist Church, Croxton – dating back to the 13th Century, the Church houses a pane of stained glass from the same era. It is said that in the Second World War, it was buried deep underground so the local bombings of RAF Kirmington (now Humberside Airport) didn’t damage it. We hold a key for access to the church.
The Humber Bridge – once the world’s longest suspension bridge is a sight for sore eyes – if you haven’t seen it – you must! You can view it up close by walking underneath (by visiting Barton upon Humber) or even take a walk on it.
