Historis Sites,Nature Reserves & much more!: For further information, please go to the link to my old personal web-site provided by HomeAway Holiday-Rentals towards the end of this presentation.
This old web-site was created just before the house was ready for guests, but it is comprehensive particularly in the suggestions of what to see and where to go. It gives detailed descriptions of our many nature reserves, our unique seal colonies, our historic towns and cities, our seaside towns as well as more unusual pursuits (at least for me), like motor-cycle racing.
The Fleece Inn at North Cotes which had closed has reopened and is under new management. I am assured by my sons that the food there is very good and they recommend it.The resraurant is open for meals on Fridays,Saturdays and Sunday lunch. The New Inn at North Thoresby (3miles) and The Crown and Anchor at Tetney Lock (2miles), also are to be recommended.
Antiques: Any-one who watches the many antique shows on TV might have noticed that Lincolnshire is a happy hunting ground for collectors. Many old-established antique fairs take place here in the county during the year. Lincoln and Newark are particularly well-regarded by professional dealers out to find a bargain.A day out at one of these fairs could be a memorable holiday experience.
There are also interesting antique shops in little towns like Louth and Market Rasen, both only a short drive from the house.Louth is also famous for its food and you can find mouth-watering local delicacies not available in the rest of England.
Racing- Horses and Motor-Cycles: A trip to the races would be a fun thing to do on holiday. During the season, there are race meetings at Market Rasen and at Lincoln with all the excitement they bring - as long as you dont lose your shirt!
For motor-cycle aficionados there is no greater thrill than the race meetings at Cadwell Park, Just south of Louth and about 12 miles from the house, the meetings attract fans from all over the country. (See my personal web-site).
My old web-site at www.endfieldhouse.co.uk goes into more detail about places to visit, but since it was written The Fleece Inn at North Cotes is now fully open with a restaurant that serves full-course meals on Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday lunches.

About Margaret Wain
I inherited the house in 2004 and susequently renovated it over the next three years. It was my childhood home, so naturally I love it.I know all the older families in the village - we go back a long way! I have good friends with whom I was at the primary school in the village.I now live in Manchester, but of course go back to North Cotes frequently.
Margaret Wain purchased this house in 1938
Why Margaret Wain chose North East Lincolnshire
I feel that the property and countryside are unique and unspoilt.
There is a wild quality to it. The area is not at all commercialised and there is a great feeling of space and freedom which I have tried to convey in the design of the alterations I made to the property.
Whilst the house now has every creature comfoet. its setting is so special beneath the beautiful Lincolshire skies.The flat and empty fields extend to the wolds and to the sea and the wood adds a touch of shelter and mystery. You must be there to fully appreciate the magic.
What makes this house unique
The house stands at the western tip of the village. It has the great advantage of privacy and seclusion but at the same time the convenience of pub and shops that are not far away.
Once you are there, you are in your own unique world- far from the madding crowd and free to relax and unwind.
