Lincolnshire and the Humber’s Direct Links with Europe

When getting around Lincolnshire, one might argue that over time local systems of transport in and around the county have been largely forgotten about. However, it’s safe to say that over the past few decades the means of getting to and from various spots in Lincolnshire and bordering counties have boomed; meaning that travelling in our east northern region is now more accessible than ever before. With airports dotted around the district and ferries ready to take you to wherever it is you wish to be, the world really is your oyster no matter when you find yourself based!

There’s nothing better than knowing you’re close to your departure gate the night before travelling, which is why we think The Old Granary is such a great spot to rest your head before the buzz of travelling begins. The Old Granary is a converted barn on a family-run potato farm that has been renovated into three bespoke and carefully hand-picked apartments, described as “maximum convenience with added luxury, suiting your every need.” Perfectly situated in the northern region of Lincolnshire’s countryside, you can find our rural hideaway tucked away within the picturesque village of Owmby just under thirty miles outside Lincoln and fourteen miles from Humber Bridge, famously known for being suspended higher than the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco! The Old Granary is a convenient base for all, benefitting from both quiet rural countryside living and the hustle and bustle of surrounding cities and towns. High quality, self-catered luxury accommodation, we like to think that The Old Granary is our guests’ “home away from home”, ideal for both long and short stays and a space completely for you to enjoy alone, or share with friends and family.

If you’re after a cosy bed to rest your head before jet-setting off, a handful of airports are within close proximity and in easy reach of our base in Owmby. Humberside Airport is just a short ten minute journey from The Old Granary, whilst travelling to Doncaster Airport takes just under an hour. Although small airports, flights from both Humberside Airport and Doncaster Airport can nip you over to a mix of cultural hotspots within all parts of Europe in no time!

As well as airports, there is a choice of ports to choose from depending on where you’re journeying. Hull Ferry Port is just over half an hour’s drive whilst Immingham Ferry Port and Grimsby Ferry Port both take just under half an hour. With the growth of transport in Lincolnshire growing right on our doorstep at The Old Granary, exploring has never been easier! So, whether you’re taking to the skies or voyaging off into the sunset by boat, there’s no denying that Lincolnshire really isn’t a bad spot for getting about after all!
