Hi All, On a completely different note...... Can those of you who know the Lincoln area please help me. Where in Lincoln would you look for housing for retired people in a nice location (they want a bungalow) close to a hospital/doctors surgery. Have easy access to local shops (i.e a well stocked local High Street) and be easily able to hop on a bus into a town which is not too far away. Imagine an elderly lady living alone....who likes dog walking but who doesn't drive. If anyone can help me with the names of some areas it would make it easier for me to search on Rightmove for them. Thanks everyone. Happy Christmas. I have to say, as I have astounded myself, that I have just been on the M&S website, which is a tradition of mine on Christmas Day, only to find that I didn't want a single thing. Amazing!!!!!!
Saxilby- a good sized village . 2 doctors surgeries, Coop, pharmacy,butchers,bakers , greengrocers,post office. Good bus service and train station. Quite a lot of bungalows for sale ,all sell fairly quickly. Its a lovely village ,but I am biased
Saxilby is a lovely village. Train into town is very easy but no where near hospital.
These retirement homes have just been built in uphill Lincoln (Newport LN1) http://www.mccarthyandstone.co.uk/property-for-sal e/lincoln.html There's a bus stop outside which goes straight into town. Every 20 mins I think. 5 mins in car to hospital. There's a road nearby. 5 mins walk which has a few shops. CO-OP, hairdressers, doctors, post office, discount shop, news agents, couple of gift type shops. Also very near to the Cathedral & Castle.
