Living in Woodhall Spa
It’s easy to see why Woodhall Spa is one of Lincolnshire’s most popular tourist destinations; stunning surroundings with pine woodland and expansive countryside on all sides, the birthplace of Golf with award winning courses close by, a proud local community supporting independent shops, cafes and restaurants, and fascinating historic attractions. Firstly, the golf. Woodhall Spa is known well for its Championship level golf course, and for being the home of English golf. The National Golf Centre is a must-visit for enthusiasts of the sport, where many an hour can be whiled away navigating through the top quality holes in stunning surroundings.
The town also has historic links to the Dambusters due to the airfield which was built in Woodhall Spa in 1941. The Petwood Hotel building served as a military hospital for injured soldiers during the Great War complete with wards and an operating theatre, but it is as the home of the legendary 617 “Dambusters” Squadron in WW2 that the Petwood is best known. Occupied from 1942, it was originally home to officers of both 97 and 619 squadrons, but when 619 squadron moved to RAF Coningsby and 617 squadron moved to RAF Woodhall Spa the officers of 617 made the Petwood their home.
It was here that the 617 Squadron were stationed and took flight on their mission to drop the Tallboy and Grandslam bomb to sink the Tirpitz. Today the Dambusters Memorial and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitors Centre in Woodhall Spa document and commemorate the Squadron’s contribution to allied Victory.
Finally, the town itself, and its beautiful surroundings. Woodhall Spa labels itself a Fairtrade village, and the community proudly support the local and independently run shops and businesses which flank the high street. Here you’ll find everything from cafes and restaurants to gift shops, pharmacies and a library. The unique attraction known as the Kinema in the Woods is a popular local haunt, and a fantastic introduction to the enchanting pine woodland which skirts the edge of the village and expands into the surrounding countryside. On top of that, the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB is only 20 miles away from the development, where residents will find plenty of opportunities to quench their thirst for the great outdoors.
