Description

Originally used as an RAF bunker, this property offers a wonderful insight into history along with delightful, holiday accommodation.

These four delightful properties are nestled in the beautiful, Lincolnshire countryside and offer unique accommodation, steeped in history. Enjoy amazing views across the marsh to The Wash and onto the North Norfolk Coastline and Hunstanton from this former observation tower at RAF Wainfleet. Along with three former, above ground bunkers, there is accommodation to suit individuals as well as a large group. The Tower (ref: UKC1178) has double bedrooms on three floors with the living room located on the fourth floor, boasting stunning 360° views. Hurricane (ref: UKC1179), Lancaster (ref: UKC1180) and Spitfire (ref: UKC1181) offer comfortable, single-storey accommodation, ideal for a family holiday or a break away for friends.
The bombing range, which The Tower was built to observe, first came in to use in the 1890s as an army artillery range and becoming a bombing range in 1938, which is where The Dambusters practised during WWII. You can still see the ships that were used as targets until 2009.
The land and marshes around are abundant with wildlife and great for dog friendly walks. It is possible to walk along the old sea banks to Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve with its visitors centre. Inland, Friskney offers a village shop as well as the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park which is home to ten tigers amongst other wild animals. There is a pub serving good food and drink at the end of the lane and the visitors centre at Batemans Brewery is just 3 miles and away always worth a visit. The traditional seaside resort of Skegness is 8 miles away and Boston, with the famous St Botolph’s Church, which boasts an extraordinarily tall tower, known as the Boston Stump being 14 miles away. Beach 8 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 22 guests.

    We wanted a short mini break just to get away with a friend. Being ex RAF we liked the idea of staying at an old RAF site. The cottages are converted office buildings and tower. We stayed in the Hurricane which has a hot tub. The pub at the end of the lane was lovely however it is 1.5 miles to the end of the lane. We did walk to it as it was a lovely evening. Overall we had a very relaxing stay.

    I took my two elderly parents away for a few days, both ex RAF. This was a fun location and brought back many memories for them. The location whilst a little bit out of the way, meant plenty of peace and quiet for them. Our hosts were both amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them. I highly recommend.

    Brilliant unique place to stay in the peace and quiet but still in driving distance of busy skegness and supermarkets added extra having a hot tub on a night stargazing was amazing. Bunker had everything you need and outside area is fantastic for the summer .
