SITUATION

This thriving historic Spa village accidentally came about after an intrepid local entrepreneur stumbled upon the spring whilst digging for coal in 1811 and fundamentally established around 1834, when the then Lord of the Manor realised the value of the mineral spring water and built the Spa Baths and Victoria Hotel. Today the prospering village enjoys such notable landmarks as The National Golf Centre, home to the English golf union and considered to be one of the top 20 golf courses in the world, whilst other sporting facilities can be found at Jubilee Park including a heated lido, bowling green, cricket ground, croquet and tennis courts. The unique Kinema in the Woods was one of the first cinemas in Britain, and proves as popular today as ever, whilst the Broadway bustles with a plethora of individual stores, cafes, restaurants and two supermarkets. As for education, there are two schools within Woodhall those being St Hughs Preparatory and St Andrews C of E, whilst secondary education can be found at the highly regarded Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Banovallum School in nearby Horncastle.

The historic Cathedral city of Lincoln is situated about 18 miles from Woodhall Spa, and offers the highly regarded Lincoln Minster School, Cathedral Quarter, Cultural Quarter, Bailgate, Steep Hill, the attractive Brayford Waterside area, Eastgate Tennis Club and Lincoln County Hospital are all easily accessible.

Lincoln is a vibrant University City offering a variety of facilities including an excellent choice of schools in both the public and private sectors, colleges, shops, restaurants, public houses and leisure activities and provides daily direct trains to London Kings Cross, with additional regular connections to London via Newark-on-Trent in approximately 1 hour 20 minutes.
