Introduction - Cliff House is a truly unique, attractive and spacious country residence situated on the edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, with stunning views and alongside deer parkland.

Local services can be found in the nearby market town of Market Rasen, a bustling market town offering a varied selection of friendly independent shops, busy regular markets, leisure centre, railway station, a wide choice of places to eat and drink and home to Market Rasen racecourse, a top national hunt course attracting some of the best horses and jockeys in the country. For those who enjoy being outdoors, there are numerous walking routes and sign-posted cycle paths, not to mention woodland walks, well stocked fishing lakes and a local 18 hole golf course.

Local schools include the outstanding Ofsted rated de Aston secondary school, sixth form and boarding house. The property is also within the catchment area of the highly regarded Caistor Grammar School. For Primary education, Tealby hosts a popular local school a mere two miles away.

The Cathedral City of Lincoln is located about 17 miles down the A46 where extensive shopping, leisure, cultural and transport facilities are conveniently located, as well as nationally respected private schools.
