There is also the Brayford Waterfront - home to the University, cinema, bars, cafes and restaurants, some with fabulous views over the Marina. This combination of ancient and modern urban living makes any village near Lincoln the perfect place to live.



Just along the A17 (approx. 8 miles) the charming market town of Newark-on-Trent is dotted with attractive Georgian architecture, independent stores and relaxed bistros, all centralised around a cobbled market square. Newark’s fascinating heritage is ripe for exploration with enchanting historic sites such as Newark Castle where visitors can take tours, view exhibitions or enjoy a stroll through the Victorian gardens. The town enjoys family friendly attractions such as a state-of-the-art cinema, a popular museum, art gallery and the town’s notable Palace Theatre. There is a handful of interesting independent stores in Newark town centre and a number of large supermarkets also close by.
