Stay at a 17th-century former coaching inn in the heart of a charming market town, between the wolds and fens of Lincolnshire – includes breakfast

Part of the acclaimed Coaching Inn group, the Admiral Rodney Hotel, Eatery & Coffee House has undergone extensive refurbishment bringing its 31 rooms and restaurant up to swish contemporary standards. Speedy Wi-Fi, a very well-stocked cellar of old and new world wines, and new patio area for alfresco dining elevates this former coaching inn to a destination gastropub and boutique hotel. In the heart of the charming market town of Horncastle, the Grade II-listed building dates back to the 17th-century and the refurbishment has wisely retained many original features.

The bar, restaurant and cosy snug proving a big hit with locals and visitors alike, while the Coffee House offers indulgent home-baked delights and a spot to soak up the period ambience and watch the world go by. This is an ideal base from which to explore Lincolnshire’s surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty either by foot, bike or car. If shopping’s more your thing, antique dealers, quirky boutiques and various market stalls are right on your doorstep. Blow out the cobwebs with a waltz across the Wolds or head towards the coast for some rejuvenating cast-coast air, before returning to the traditional charms of the wood-panelled bar and your cosy room.
