    As we have English heritage membership but not National Trust this is one that had previously not been on our radar so to speak, but it's an excellent place.....informative staff- a guy 'in character ' was great.....the castle is well preserved as the artefacts within .....you can go right to the top where the views are excellent!

    Lovely museum. Both open air and covered areas so would suit a rainy day. Volunteers knowledgeable and really enthusiastic. Trails/quizzes for kids. Amazing value. Beautiful woods next door for a walk.

    We stayed for a week in a Superior Caravan with hot tub, booked directly with the site.

    Check in was simply with friendly staff directing people to their caravans. The caravan was spotless, we had an end spot with the decking overlooking a grass area, the kitchen was well equipped and had everything that you would need to cook a family meal. Having the hot tub was lovely and was checked daily by staff. It was a good 20 minute walk to the main facilities which had to be taken into consideration when getting to timed activities.

    We had booked swimming slots three weeks in advance with a mixture of indoor and outdoor. Both pools were clean, warm and well staffed, changing facilities were available if needed.
    Other activities we booked were archery, tie dye T-shirts and bird boxes, these were all professionally run by friendly staff and we all enjoyed them.

    The bars and restaurants were an issue, there was no inside seating to just have a drink, the main Spitfire bar was for staff only to service the restaurant which only left the small outside bar that there was always a queue for. All the seating outside were garden tables dotted around on the grass area between the kids playground and the multipurpose sports area, watch out for flying footballs! We ate once in the Spitfire restaurant, go early or you will have a long wait, the food was good quality and the portion sizes were as you would expect. There was quite a long wait considering there were only a handful of other people eating, the wait must be horrendous if the place was full.

    We were unable to book a table in the Propeller restaurant, even tried three weeks in advance.
    Bar 49 is a lovely spot overlooking the lake to enjoy a cocktail, unfortunately the kitchen was closed due to staff shortages putting more pressure on the Spitfire restaurant.
    The giggling goose bar was closed, again due to staff shortages.

    The main evening entertainment was held in the Big Top Tent, you had to leave the main complex and walk around to it, not ideal if you have kids wanting to do different things. This really needs looking at! Inside the tent are more garden tables to sit at, it lacked atmosphere and most people were bringing there own drinks. It just didn’t feel like somewhere you’d spend the evening!

    The WiFi worked in the main complex but was absolutely useless around the site, I don’t know why advertise it when it’s not fit for purpose!

    Overall we really enjoyed our stay, it’s a big site but doesn’t feel overcrowded when walking around, the grounds are well kept and the lakes are beautiful. I wouldn’t personally return to this site but would look at other Away Resorts sites in the future.

    As you have to pass church from the car park it is worthwhile to detour off and see this beautiful place.
    Would have like to spend more time here as more interesting than the castle but it was late in the day. Maybe another time

    Having driven past loads of times over the last few years, we finally happened to be in the area during one of the pumping station’s open days so were able to visit. Friendly and enthusiastic volunteers welcomed us and were also on hand to explain the workings of the pumps and uses of the buildings. The location on the bank of the River Witham was also very pleasant. Admission was free but donations were welcomed as were purchases of cake and other items. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area on an open day.

    Tattershall College was built in 1460, four years after the death of its patron, Lord Cromwell, and was completed by William of Wainfleet, Bishop of Winchester.
    This building formed part of the complex of college buildings in Tattershall village and is thought to have been the grammar school.

    Most colleges provided such educational facilities for their choristers and for the sons of local tenants. Schoolmasters from the clergy and the laity might teach in both the collegiate and secular schools.

    The Chantries Act of 1547 led to the closure of this type of religious institution across the country, and the college buildings near the church at Tattershall were demolished.

    The present building was re-founded as a secular grammar school and continued to be used for this purpose until the late 17th century. The new tenant converted the buildings into a malt-house and granary. Many further alterations were made to the building until it came into English Heritage guardianship in 1972.

    The college, having retained much of its original fabric, is now one of the oldest brick structures in England. What remains is an almost complete example of the Perpendicular style of architecture.

    The college is built in red brick with limestone ashlar dressings. The original structure would have been two storeys high, but later a cellar was inserted. This has now been filled in, and the ground floor is set halfway between the level of the original floor and the cellar floor.

    Original openings such as the Tudor arched doorways remain, and their positions in the long walls indicate the original floors of the 15th-century building. My husband and I spent half an hour mooching round the external part of this interesting building and taking photographs.

    We could not look at the interior of the building as it was closed and a notice was on the door to this effect. However, the website had stated it was open.

    I bought a wowcher deal to use in the summer holidays. After not being able to contact them, ringing and voicemail and text, I requested a refund via wowcher. I was told I had never tried to contact them and they wouldnt issue refund. I sent proof of contact from my mobile but still nothing. I have finally had a refund from wowcher not this company.
    Would never use these or recommend to anyone.

    Good time was had by all. Bit cheeky charging an extra £5 than listed price per person, but as we all had a good time, it didn't really matter.

    First time fishing here, what a brilliant days Bream fishing on Hurricane lake. 11 bream all around 5/7lb and a few nice Roach to add.
    this water is 5/7ft deep, but must be like the Himalayas as there a big droop off's and rises. use a large hook bait 8mm are you will hounded by roach.
    £10 is a lot if your only fishing one rod at a time but the standard of fish make it worth the cash, with not many bream waters around Lin's this was a top day fishing.
    looking forward to my next trip.
