Offering a diverse landscape; fifty miles of coastline, excellent beaches, and well-loved seaside towns. Wide open fields and the rolling Wolds.

But could it be the perfect location for you?

Where should you live?
The county offers many different lifestyle choices. A rural idyll for those who fancy their own version of The Good Life. Perhaps a bustling coastal location, or a quaint market town. And if a Schöffel coat and Hunter wellies aren’t your style, there’s always the vibrant city of Lincoln, where you’ll find a huge range of retail and restaurant chains, with some fantastic and unusual independents and boutiques.
Location can vastly increase your access to job opportunities. With a mix of idyllic villages, historic market towns and vibrant cities, there’s a wide range of employment opportunities within Lincolnshire. From engineering roles with Siemens and Dynex to health care opportunities with Lincoln Medical School, a partnership between Lincoln and Nottingham Universities, aiming to bring more health care professionals to the area.
How will you commute and travel?
Newark and Lincoln both provide fast train services to London. Grantham also gives quick and direct access to London via train. While the north and west are within easy reach of the motorway network and A-roads. Approximately half an hour connection by road to either the A1 South and A15 North giving access to the M180.
Making more local trips within Lincolnshire is predominantly by car, however, there is public transport available by way of buses for the shorter trips between villages and smaller market towns.
Which amenities are important to you?
How far are you willing to drive to access shops and the supermarket? Consider the selection of eateries on offer locally, especially if you enjoy a Saturday night takeaway. And social butterflies may want a pub in handy walking distance.
For families, consider which catchment area your new home would fall into. There are some fantastic schools within Lincolnshire, including several Grammar Schools. Not forgetting the thriving University in the heart of Lincoln.
