BRANSTON – Located just three miles within easy access to and from the centre of historic Lincoln, you will find our guesthouse set in a Methodist Chapel dating back to 1883. Situated in the conservation area of the picturesque village of Branston, The Old Methodist Chapel is surrounded by stone cottages, an 800 year old church, countryside and places of interest, making it a perfect and tranquil setting to stay for those who enjoy walking, photography and painting, as well as for exploring the rich heritage of Lincoln City and the many beautiful sights that Lincolnshire has to offer. The area is ideal for cycling and walking with many lovely routes and footpaths. You can even sit at Branston’s beautiful beck, a delightful place to read or to simply watch the world go by.

Lincoln’s busy historic city has a vibrant and contemporary spirit that adds real excitement for any visitor.
An ideal destination for a city break, Lincoln offers an experience rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink. The Usher Gallery is Lincolnshire’s premier art gallery and Lincoln Castle houses the famous Magna Carta and the only surviving copy of the Charter of the Forest. The city is easily walkable for visitors with good mobility – the main shopping and tourist area stretches from St Marks Shopping Centre in the south up to the Cathedral Quarter – known locally as ‘Uphill’. Steep Hill, voted Britain’s Great Street 2012, connects ‘downhill’ and ‘uphill’ Lincoln. Yes, it is as steep as its name suggests, but well worth the walk!
Lincoln is a Cathedral City and the county town of Lincolnshire – one of the UK’s largest counties. Part of the East Midlands, Lincolnshire sits on the east coast of England, to the north of Norfolk and the south of Yorkshire, nestled between the Humber and the Wash.
Access to Lincoln is easier than you may think. The A1 and A46 make the journey from the south and the midlands quicker now than ever before. And from the north and northwest, the M180 connecting to the A15 makes for a straightforward journey.
There are also train services into the city, and three airports within a 50-mile radius.
