Old Leake is a quiet, South Lincolnshire village on the edge of the Fens, an area known as the “Holland of England” due to its bulb fields, vegetable production and windmill sails. Old Leake sits in lovely countryside and has a shop, Post Office, three pubs, a sports field and a children’s playground. Less than 9 miles away, the market town of Spilsby offers shops, restaurants and inns, while Trader Windmill, a working mill now run by English Heritage, can be found 4 miles away in Sibsey. The area has much on offer: the former WWII airfield at East Kirkby, now an Aviation Heritage centre, the large market town of Boston, the traditional seaside resort of Skegness and the antiques centre of Horncastle. For nature lovers, RSPB Freiston Shore and Frampton Marshes are within easy distance, and the coastline, Fens and rolling hills of the Wolds offer many walks.

Previous visitors' comments about Long Acres:
The property was absolutely spotless. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Even though it snowed, the bungalow was very warm. Would recommend this holiday, plenty to do in the surrounding area.

The owners bent over backwards to make us very welcome. We had a lovely week, the accommodation was superb. We have sometimes found the mattresses and sofa not very comfortable but this certainly was not the case at Long Acres. Very secure garden and our dogs especially enjoyed the park.
