Additional Location Information

Set on the edge of this popular village a mile from the A1, the property is easily accessible from London or the north.
The local village is served extremely well on the main road by the Post Office, general store, Arnolds farm butchers, the grocery store and also a well stocked newsagent. Sharrick's fish and chip shop next to the post office is the hub of the village at tea time. The three pubs also have restaurants. The Reindeer Inn is famous and guests will need to book reservations, especially on the weekend.
Shopping in two nearby towns is becoming increasingly trendy. Newark is 6 miles north of Long Bennington on the A1 and on the East Coast Main Line railway from Kings Cross. It is a pretty market town on the River Trent. It has quite a few independent fashion boutique and a lovely historic market square, featuring the Town Hall and the Old Butter Market. The market days are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Monday is the flea market and Thursday the bric-a-brac day. Waitrose, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s are the main supermarkets. Use Morrisons car park while shopping.
A day out in Newark is peaceful on the river after visiting the ruined castle and tourist centre. There is a museum on Millgate and a variety of galleries. On Kirkgate, guests will find some carefully collected antiques from France and Peter and Gillian also have a very professional art gallery featuring successful, internationally famous local artists. There is an abundance of tea shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, all waiting to make visitors welcome. The Palace is a flourishing theatre with an exciting and diverse programme.
Grantham is 7 miles to the south of Long Bennington and on the mainline railway from Kings Cross. It is also a market town on Saturdays, held around the Old Cross in Westgate. There is usually a farmers market. It has the usual range of national stores and the major supermarkets are Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s. Use Asda car park while shopping.
Lincoln, a Cathedral city and the County Town of Lincolnshire is only 20 miles away and a must-see town. Guests should aim for the cathedral and park in the cathedral car park. The movies the “Da Vinci Code” and “Elizabeth” were both filmed in Lincoln Cathedral. The owners have some of the props, reproductions of tombs in Westminster Abbey, now in the fashion studio at Priory House. Guests may see them, and it is especially convenient when coming in conjunction with a wedding dress consultation.
Steep Hill is the quaint, winding street leading up to the Cathedral. Tea shops, boutiques and old inns mingle together offering an eclectic experience of old world antiquarian bookshops and antiques. The ice cream shop by the Cathedral always has a queue. Nearby is a stunning new museum called The Collections featuring local Roman history.
