Three fields in arable production along with a small area of pasture land
The Barlings Estate is situated in rural countryside within the county of Lincolnshire at the gateway to the Wolds. Lincolnshire is predominantly agricultural in land use, and is known for growing a wide variety of high quality crops which include: wheat, barley, sugar beet, oil seed rape, potatoes, cabbage, parsnips and onions.
The Estate is situated about 9 miles from the Cathedral City of Lincoln with several quaint rural villages nearby. Lincoln is an important tourist destination and major landmarks include Lincoln Cathedral, a famous example of Gothic architecture, Lincoln Castle and the Medieval Bishop’s Palace. It is also home to The University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University and several outstanding primary and secondary schools. In addition to the historical landmarks, Lincoln has a full range of amenities including shops and leisure facilities, that would be expected of a county city, which service the rural areas surrounding the city. Racing can be found at the nearby renowned Market Rasen Racecourse. The well respected Minster and St Mary’s private schools are also situated in Lincoln. The Lincoln A46 bypass offers access to the A1 road network as well as direct access to Newark, where from Newark Northgate Station there is a fast rail link to London (Kings Cross from 80 minutes).
