Image result for lakeshore, burton watersLakeshore 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.

If you’re looking to retire in Lincoln, you’ll find Lakeshore homes offer a fresh, exciting and cost-effective alternative to a traditional retirement bungalow. Choose from a selection of four luxury home types, each with its own distinctive interior design that includes sumptuous furnishings and contemporary kitchens. Both two and three bedroom options are available, giving you as much or more space than you’d find in the average bungalow.

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.

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 cycle-way running alongside. 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, oyster catchers, sandpipers, ducks and geese.
