The Lincolnshire Wolds is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They are a range of low hills which run roughly parallel with the North Sea coast, from the Humber Estuary to the edge of the Lincolnshire Fens.

Being surrounded by coastline and marshy fenland means that these hills offer big-sky views of rolling, uninterrupted countryside.
