Lately, we have been getting a lot of interest in properties in Nettleham and the surrounding areas.

And it’s no surprise, Nettleham is a beautiful village and a great place to live for all ages. So, we thought it might be a good idea to write a small blog post about what the village has to offer!

Nettleham is an ancient settlement and is believed to date back to the Bronze-Age or before and has a population of approximately 3500. It is situated approximately 4 miles North-East of the City of Lincoln.


The Village Green and Parish Church are conservation areas and the focal point of the village. There are many shops, with tea rooms, a florist, hair and beauty salons, a co-op, as well as ‘The Hub’ which has a library, café and creative activities to enjoy. 

The village also has three Public Houses offering fantastic food and drink. In addition to these there is also a Medical Practice and regular bus links to Lincoln and surrounding areas. For those with children the village also benefits from the Nettleham Infant School (from reception to year 2) and also the Nettleham C of E Junior School (year 3 to year 6). 

One matter of local pride is how Nettleham has won the “Best Kept Village Award” several times (You can see how as you walk through the village). Along with the well kept central area and the All Saints’ church, the village also boasts a beautiful beck flowing through its centre and the wooded Vicar’s Woods. The perfect places for a morning dog walk, or an afternoon stroll.

Overall, Nettleham offers a great mix of facilities for all ages making it a fabulous place to live for both families and those who are enjoying retirement with a mix of houses and bungalows. There is a great Community spirit in Nettleham with the Village Cricket Club and Lincoln RFC based on Lodge Lane to the perimeter of the village.
