A dazzling, dog-friendly Lincolnshire beacon with soothing River Nene views, surrounded by one of the UK’s most important wetland sites… ideal for art-lovers and nature-watchers alike

The former home of Sir Peter Scott, a British painter and conservationist, the lighthouse that now bears his name was originally constructed in 1830.

Nestled along the River Nene, the lighthouse continues to help ships find their way through tidal channels that lead out to The Wash.  Surrounded by open Lincolnshire countryside and wetland, it’s also perfectly placed to spot migrating birds and wildlife.

Filled with charm and character, the lighthouse sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms (two well-behaved dogs are welcome to stay, too).  There’s a quirky circular dining room for feasting, an enclosed garden for catch-up cocktails in the afternoon sun, and a light-filled living space for relaxing evenings together.  

Light the woodburner to feel ridiculously cosy… and perhaps you’ll also feel inspired to do some drawing of that sublime scenery, especially after spotting Sir Peter Scott’s original sketch on the wall!

Keep climbing the winding stairs for more rooms and views, culminating in the light gallery that showcases the most spectacular river-and-countryside vista.  And if you’re a nature-lover, you’re in particular luck: there’s a private wildlife reserve on the doorstep that’s home to some of the world’s rarest geese.

What else?  Head to the beach, watch basking seals at the nearby Wash Viewpoint, or trawl the local towns for foodie supplies to hole yourselves up with… your choice!
