Park Overview

‘Rattys’ is a renovated cottage on the banks of the River Glen. It is a fantastic base for Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties and offers a relaxing break available all year round. The property is centrally heated and has a fully fitted modern kitchen along with a modern bathroom and two double bedrooms. There is parking provided at the rear for two cars. Outside we encourage fishing and boat mooring on the mooring in front of the cottage and have a bench along with a picnic table for warmer days and evenings. The local pub, The Ship is a two minute walk down the river and is arguably one of the best pubs in the local area.

‘Rattys’ is situated on the River Glen in the village of Surfleet Seas End where the rivers Glen and Welland meet the Blue Gowt Drain to flow into the Wash. It is raised above the ground as a flood precaution and as such is accessed both front and rear by five steps which may prove hazardous and awkward for small children and wheelchair users.

‘Rattys’ is a mere 7 miles from Spalding town centre where there is a good range of shops and supermarkets along with a small railway and bus station. Spalding has a thriving theatre at the South Holland Centre and shows films on certain nights throughout the week. The local shop is a few minutes away from offering local conveniences. The Ship pub has a mooring as does another local pub- The Mermaid which is further down the river in Surfleet.

Stamford is a thirty five minute drive from ‘Rattys’ and is a local historic market town famed for its part in the latest Hollywood adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, it is also home to the famous Burghley Park which hosts the Horse Trials in September. The Norfolk coast is another popular destination and is roughly an hour and a half away.
