Hi All, My work have tentatively agreed to a transfer up north later this year, which means a move to Lincolnshire. To be in a decent commute to work I'd need to be in LN4 or possibly LN10 but we know very little about the area.
We've lived rurally and been isolated for 15 years so we'd like to be somewhere with a bit of community to it but still pretty quiet and green. We have a 5 year old in mainstream and a 3 year old with profound disabilities so we need to think about a special school that isn't too much of a commute for her. Our budget is 325k and we'd like a 4-bed detached with a big garden, and preferably not a new build.
I'd look at Bracebridge Heath (ln4) or Waddington (LN5) both are big busy villages with easy access to Lincoln. There is a special school at the bottom of the road from both villages into the city and it is easy to get out to Metheringham/Coningsby from there without being very rural.
Nocton is probably one of the nicer rural villages in LN4, Bracebridge is getting a bit too close to Lincoln. The cliff villages are very popular but you can get quite a lot for your money in Lincolnshire.
Hi, I would recommend Washingborough, Branston, Bracebridge Heath, Waddington areas. All nice areas to live with good schools with good local shops etc. If you want somewhere more rural then the villages towards Metheringham are quieter and smaller with varying degrees of local shops etc. The two main secondary schools that serve the LN4 local area are in Branston and near to Bracebridge Heath (Priory LSST). I am also a local (and in LN4!) and I love it round here!
