The Property The main bungalow is understood to date back to the 1970's and has brick-faced principal walls beneath pitched timber roof structures covered in concrete tiles. The annexe was created around ten years ago by alterations to a previous games room and is constructed with complementary walls and roof. Both buildings have uPVC double-glazed windows and independent gas central heating systems.
Location Nestling on the lower slopes and at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds area of outstanding natural beauty, just three and a half miles or so from Market Rasen, Tealby is well known as a particularly attractive village with many highly individual character properties surrounded by scenic, typically English countryside. The village has two pubs, one of which (the King's Head) is one of the oldest in the country with a thatched roof. There is a thriving community with a village hall, the All Saints church, primary school, bowls and tennis clubs and a post office which opens on certain days of the week.
Market Rasen has three markets each week with periodic farmers' markets. The town has a variety of shops, public houses, cafes, restaurants and take-aways with a railway station on the Grimsby-Lincoln-Newark line, which then links to the country's main lines. "Rasen" is particularly known for the National Hunt Racecourse and has a highly-regarded gold club. There are primary and secondary schools in the town. The market town of Louth is 13 miles away whilst main business centres are in Grimsby (17 miles) and Lincoln (20 miles). The Humberside Airport is about 14 miles away.
