Lincolnshire is the second largest of the English counties and is an area of outstanding natural beauty with a vast amount of agricultural land, particularly fertile for vegetables, wheat and barley.
Property in Lincolnshire is very competitively priced and boasts a buoyant market - the best of both worlds. Older houses, new developments and apartments are on offer and tiny hamlets, market towns, larger towns and Lincoln City itself give buyers a huge range of properties to choose from.
Lincolnshire is one of the few counties still using the eleven plus system of examinations to decide who should go to grammar school, and Lincoln University's campus is the newest in the UK.
Tourism in Lincolnshire is significant, mainly due to the neighbouring coastal resorts of Skegness, Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe.
Famous for its local produce such as stuffed chine, sausages and pork pies, the restaurant and pub food is simply superb, and locally grown produce is used wherever possible.
Doddington Farm Shop and Cafe or Beck House Winery are fascinating days out for shopping enthusiasts, while Waterside Shopping Centre and a vast range of independent retailers are scattered throughout the region's towns and villages.
A vibrant arts and cultural programme is organised throughout the region, with many interesting venues and events to suit all tastes.
The M180 passes through North Lincolnshire and the rest of the road network comprises A and B roads and dual carriageways. Rail services are provided by East Midland trains and Stagecoach Grimsby-Cleethorpes runs the bus routes. The only airport in Lincolnshire is Humberside Airport, near Brigg, 25 miles from Lincoln.
Lincolnshire is the ideal place for those who prefer to live life at their own pace, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Its proximity to Skegness and coastal resorts makes it the ideal place for families, as do the varied schooling options and lower property prices.
