The property

An attractive, semi-detached three bedroom cottage set within the small, rural village of Old Bolingbroke, 3.5 miles from Spilsby in Lincolnshire.

This delightful cottage is situated within walking distance from the English Heritage site of Bolingbroke Castle and provides an ideal base for exploring all that Lincolnshire has to offer.

The beamed sitting room is comfortably furnished and boasts a warming open fire, with the separate dining room offering plenty of space for guests to enjoy a social gathering together.

Also on the ground floor are a well-equipped kitchen and a bathroom.

Upstairs, the three bedrooms are bright, cheerful and well-furnished, with two of them offering king-sized beds, including one with an en-suite, and there’s also a separate shower room available.

Outside, there is a secluded patio area with a brick raised flowerbed and a table with six chairs.

A short walk down the country lane brings you to the site of Bolingbroke Castle, with the surrounding rolling hills ideal for walks and cycling.

For golfers there’s a championship course at Woodhall Spa, and a visit to RAF Coningsby is a must.

Also in the area is the town of Horncastle, and the city of Lincoln has something for everyone.

Further afield is the traditional seaside town of Skegness, with long sandy Blue Flag beaches, restaurants, cafes, amusements and seasonal entertainment.

An excellent property for families and friends.

About the location


Spilsby 3.5 miles; Horncastle 7.5 miles; Skegness 15 miles.

The small village of Old Bolingbroke lies on the edge of the rolling countryside of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just fifteen miles from the coast. Historically known for its castle ruins and nearby Civil War Battle of Winceby, this quiet village has a local pub and is within easy distance of the market towns of Spilsby and Horncastle. Spilsby offers a choice of tea rooms, pubs and independent retailers, whilst Horncastle is a thriving centre for the antiques trade, and has an excellent choice of restaurants and cafes. The countryside around Old Bolingbroke is perfect cycling and walking country, with a network of public footpaths, trails and peaceful country lanes to enjoy. The unspoilt pasture valley of Sow Dale nature reserve is a short step from the village, and Snipe Dales nature reserve and country park lie only three miles away, where there is an extensive network of easy-access paths. The nearby coastline has traditional seaside resorts, including Skegness and Mablethorpe, with their long, sandy beaches and dunes, dotted with nature reserves. This area of Lincolnshire is renowned for historical WW2 aviation sites and there is a Squadron Bar at the Petwood Hotel at Woodhall Spa which hosts memorabilia from this era.
