O que levar
Bring a comfortable pair of shoes or boots
South Lincolnshire is a fabulous place for walking, especially for anyone who enjoys completely unspoilt countryside. For example, there are lovely walks in the Vale of Belvoir or around Rutland Water. One thing that makes the county so special is the number of undiscovered, idyllic villages which look like they have come straight out of Midsomer.
