Short Breaks

Banks & Bait

Flower filled riverbank

Relax. Watch the world go by. And make the most of the Lincolnshire Fens Waterways.

Cast yourself off into a world of unrivalled beauty and naturally fulfilling pastimes.

If angling is your pleasure, we offer a well distributed and wide variety of fish, and an equally diverse choice of locations to meet your every need.

If boating is more your desire, then the Lincolnshire Fens offer a rich and varied choice of navigable waterways, each supported with mooring and navigation guidance.

And let’s not forget the acres of fertile farmland and colourful flowers that make up the natural manscape in between the waterways themselves.
