Property description

Nestled in the beautiful, Lincolnshire countryside, this ex RAF bunker has been restored to offer delightful accommodation. Spitfire is one of four properties converted from it’s original use as reception and “gate house” for the site, to this form of unusual holiday accommodation. Spitfire consists of two bedrooms, one a double room and the other a bunk room. It also has a large kitchen/diner, reception room and bathroom with separate luxury bath and shower cubicle.

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 unusual holiday accommodation to suit individuals as well as a large group. The Tower has double bedrooms on three floors with the living room located on the fourth floor, boasting stunning 360° views. Hurricane, Lancaster and Spitfire offer comfortable, single-storey accommodation, ideal for a family holiday or a break away for friends.

Unusual history

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 away and 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.
