Discover this unique area of East England whilst staying near Peterborough, a city in the heart of this rural area that bridges Cambridgeshire, Rutland and Lincolnshire.

 

PETERBOROUGH is a city of contrasts with a blend of heritage and modern life. The stunning Cathedral towers above the city’s skyline, now over 900 years old, its the finest Norman building in Britain. The heart of the city is Cathedral Square and here you’ll find the historic Guildhall.

 

ROCKINGHAM CASTLE dates back 900 years and was built on the orders of William the Conqueror! Owned by the Watson family for the last 450 years you are invited to explore this remarkable castle and beautiful gardens that give magnificent views over the Welland Valley.

 

What better way to relax and unwind than with a cruise around RUTLAND WATER, a large, horseshoe-shaped reservoir set within 3,000 acres of beautiful English countryside. Its the largest artificial lake in Europe, home to several breeding pairs of ospreys and located on the borders of Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire.

 

Remember the golden age of steam on the NENE VALLEY RAILWAY.  Step back in time as you climb aboard a heritage train and travel over 7 miles through beautiful scenery between Yarwell and Peterborough.

 

BOSTON is set in the heart of Lincolnshire’s dramatic Fenland and is a classic market town steeped in history. There is a tapestry of streets and walkways to explore and the tower of “The Stump”, St Botolph’s Church, is a must, it can be seen from miles around.
