Sturton by Stow
Set in the West Lindsey District, Sturton by Stow is nestled within a series of villages to the northwest of the city of Lincoln.
The village is located just 16 miles from the city and provides a great mix of tranquillity and convenience. Framed between River Trent to the West and River Till to the East, the Sturton by Stow landscape contains lots of natural beauty.
A short drive to the village of Torskey, visitors will find the friendly and welcoming Lincoln golf club. The area close by to the club also has a number of other interesting attractions including Torskey Lock, a charming place for walking, cycling or even canoeing. Visitors can also take in the local wildlife, eat in one of the surrounding pubs or even take up a spot of fishing at the nearby Locklands lake. Additionally, having the two Rivers, Trent and Till, within easy reach further reinforces the quintessentially British country feel to the area.
Lincoln is the closest city and offers many opportunities for leisure, recreation, and art and culture. There you can find the iconic, Grade I listed Lincoln Cathedral, as well as a multitude of city amenities.
As well as what Lincolnshire has to offer, northward neighbouring counties such as Nottinghamshire, East Riding and South Yorkshire are also within easy reach – Nottingham, Hull and Sheffield are all less than an hour and a half away.
While the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits and sits just 20 miles to the east. In short, Sturton by Stow offers all the tranquillity and seclusion you’d expect of a rural Lincolnshire village, yet it is deceptively well connected. In that sense, it’s a true ‘best of both worlds’ location.
Lincolnshire embraces technology and encourages innovation through its three Technology Hubs located in Lincoln and Horncastle. These hubs provide spaces for businesses to use cutting-edge technology and equipment, attend workshops, and receive advice to help develop businesses local to the region. What’s more, the Lincolnshire Innovation and Technology Awards is an annual event in which local businesses and individuals, as well as runners-up, are recognised for their outstanding work in the field.
Over the years, Lincolnshire has been a great example of increased economic growth. Data from economic reports show that the region has seen an increase in employment, average wages and salaries, and success rates for businesses in their first year.
In a prime geographical position with easy access to the rest of Lincolnshire, commuting for work opportunities further afield in the surrounding towns and cities, and the rest of the UK is very easy from Sturton by Stow.
