About Carrington

This is a tranquil village perfectly placed for exploring the beauty of the Lincolnshire countryside. The village is most noted for its lovely parish church built in 1816 and consecrated in 1818. The church is in the late Perpendicular style and is built of russet-brick with stone window dressings. A small picturesque bell-tower sits decoratively on its roofline. The dedication is to Saint Paul.

From Carrington there is easy access to the Sibsey Trader windmill, a restored six storey mill complete with sails and fantail in excellent working order. At the mill there is a visitors tea-room which sells scrumptious products made from the mill's organic, stone-ground flour.

This is a lovely area in which to discover the fens and wolds of Lincolnshire. It is within driving distance of Skegness and the wide sweep of The Wash. The nearest town is Boston where you will find a museum recalling the social heritage, traditions and history of the region, shops and pubs.

Visitors will find plenty of places to stay, accommodation can be found in almost all towns and villages of the area, the range is as diverse as luxury hotels to private homes where breakfast is served by the lady of the house.
