Great Review from the ABC Centreville Cycling Club.

November 19th 2018

Spotless, warm and it is excellent value. The facilities are ideal for a cycling group and there are great quiet lanes directly from the village up onto the wolds and south towards the coast.

Here’s what the ABC Centreville Cycling Club had to say:   

“The Viking Centre at Claxby made a great base for our cycling trip to explore Lincolnshire. It was spotless, warm, the facilities are ideal for a group and it is excellent value. There are great quiet lanes directly from the village up onto the wolds and south towards Horncastle and Lincoln. The coast and the Humber bridge are also easily included in cycling routes. For a change walking routes are nearby too, and there are good places to eat and drink in nearby Market Raisen. We had a great time and really recommend The Viking Centre!”

The Viking Centre has just been refurbished with a new kitchen, new beds and a big secure Cycle she.  The  refurbished bunk rooms had new mattresses, carpet and curtains.
