About this property

The property enjoys frontage to Main Street in the heart of the highly regarded village of Laneham , a quiet village leading to Church Laneham and the River Trent so effectively no through traffic. Laneham boasts a well known local hostelry lying adjacent to its own brewery, village hall, proximity to the River Trent and a wealth of countryside walks and lanes. Further facilities are available in other nearby villages. Lying just off the A57, the village is particularly well located for accessing surrounding centres of Retford, Newark and Lincoln.

The area in general is served by excellent transport links. The A1 is accessible at nearby Markham Moor from which the wider motorway network is available. Both Retford and Newark have direct rail services into London Kings Cross (from Retford approx. 1hr 30 mins). Air travel is feasible via Nottingham East Midlands international airport. Leisure amenities and educational facilities (both state and independent) are well catered for. Tuxford Academy is nearby.

From the A1 at Markham Moor, take the A57 signposted Lincoln, pass East Markham and proceed through Darlton. At the Ragnall crossroads turn left towards Laneham, turn right into the village and right again at the T-junction onto Main Street. Proceed along and the chapel will be found on the left hand side just after Broadings Lane.
