Town and country living, within reach of the city

Bell’s Yard enjoys a convenient setting, on Bell’s Yard Close, Horncastle, just 20 miles east of Lincoln, on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Living here, you’ll enjoy a lively local community, good shops and schools, a close proximity to the countryside, plus excellent transport links.

The name Horncastle derives from Hurncastre or Hyrnecastre, meaning ‘fortress or camp in the corner’, which refers to its position between the rivers Bain and Waring. The Romans built a fort here and for much of its history, agriculture has provided the main source of employment. The town was given its market charter in the 13th century and was well known for its horse fair, an annual event that lasted until the early 20th century. The town thrived in the Middle Ages and again with the coming of the railway in the 19th century.

Today, Horncastle is a delightful town of some 7,000 inhabitants, still offering twice-weekly markets and a monthly farmers’ market selling great local produce. With its ancient Roman walls still evident, along with an interesting collection of historic buildings, shopping remains a pleasure within such a setting. Horncastle is nationally renowned for its large number of antique shops, but also enjoys a great range of other retailers, cafés, pubs and restaurants, difficult to beat for a town of its size. For those with families, education within the town is well provided for with excellent schools catering for all ages.

Well placed for Lincoln and the Wolds

For a greater range of shopping and leisure opportunities, the historic city of Lincoln offers a city centre where ancient architecture and modern business sit comfortably together. At the top of Steep Hill, the city’s old quarter is where you’ll find the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral and the nearby medieval Lincoln Castle, home to the Magna Carta. Independent specialist shops, boutiques and galleries line the cobbled streets and the city also offers a host of well known major retailers and supermarkets, farmers’ markets, craft fairs and the famous annual Christmas Market.

Lincoln has an exciting range of cafés, restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs, and there are theatres, a multi-screen cinema, art galleries and museums. The University of Lincoln provides further arts and entertainment venues and many sports facilities are available in the city, including gyms, leisure centres, swimming pools, parks and sports clubs.

When it’s time to relax and take in the local countryside, Bell’s Yard is perfectly placed for the Lincolnshire Wolds, part of which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This wonderful landscape offers rolling hills and deep valleys, tranquil streams and hanging beechwoods, rising to a height of 552 feet near Normanby-le-Wold. Here you can visit wonderful nature trails, outstanding heritage sites, interesting market towns and picturesque villages, enjoy cycling, rambling and other country pursuits. The nearby village of Somersby is where Alfred, Lord Tennyson was born and to the south of the Wolds, Lincolnshire’s Fens stretch out towards The Wash. For all the fun of the seaside, the Lincolnshire coastal resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe are within easy reach.
