Lakeshore is located on the banks of a tranquil lake at Lincolnshire’s beautiful Burton Waters. Homes are set in idyllic parkland overlooking the lake, with a residents’ only island – Sandbanks – accessible by private footbridge. The park is a rural fenland haven, yet the bustle and amenities of the popular Burton Waters inland marina are just a short stroll away and historic Lincoln is only three miles down the road.

Burton Waters – a marina on your doorstep
If you own a yacht – or are thinking of buying one when you retire – Burton Waters marina makes the perfect mooring place. When you feel the call of the open sea, you can set sail for the North Sea via Boston. If exploring inland waterways in a motor boat is more your style, then follow the River Trent to link up with the canal system.
No boat? Simply take in the ambience, or enjoy a waterside meal at one of the restaurants overlooking the gently-rippling waters.
Magnificent fenland surroundings
The countryside surrounding Lakeshore is classic Lincolnshire fenland, celebrated for its wide open spaces and big skies. Streams and water channels dissect the landscape, and a network of footpaths and lanes connects picturesque villages, farms and hamlets.
On the far side of the lake runs the Roman Fosse Dyke. Once a busy waterway carrying timber, coal, iron and farm produce, the canal is now a peaceful leisure route with a footpath and cycleway running alongside.
Stunning natural environment
The planting around Burton Waters includes hundreds of native trees, thousands of grasses, wild flowers, bulbs and shrubs. Along the water’s edge, waves of perennials and grasses create the feel of a water meadow. Paths wander through acres of wild areas, and the lakes are home to swans, herons, oystercatchers, sandpipers, ducks and geese.
The historic city of Lincoln just down the road
A vibrant and historic city with a contemporary edge, Lincoln offers a wide range of experiences and attractions. The cathedral quarter – known as ‘Uphill’ – contains a wealth of medieval buildings in addition to the magnificent cathedral, Britain’s third largest.
‘Downhill’ is where you’ll find the main national retailers. Connecting the two is historic Steep Hill, lined with independent boutique shops. There’s also a rich arts and culture scene. Mainline rail links take you to London in less than two hours.
If you’re over 55 and looking for property in the Lincoln area, you’ll find Lakeshore offers a refreshingly modern and cost-effective alternative to traditional retirement living. Choose from a selection of luxury park home styles, each with its own distinctive interior design that includes sumptuous furnishings and contemporary kitchens. Both two and three bedroom options are available, giving you more space than you’d find in the average bungalow.View Site Plan
