Guide to Burgh Le Marsh

Burgh Le Marsh is located approx 4 1/2 miles west of Skegness, just inland from the Lincolnshire coast. The village’s own website refers to Burgh as a ‘peaceful and picturesque small market town’ Often mis-pronounced,- many people call it ‘berg’ le marsh but it is actually pronounced locally as ‘borough’ le marsh.

It is considered by many locally to be the most popular and sought after town to move to since it offers something for all, from young couples buying their first home to, a popular family spot as well as having some quiet and peaceful small estates of bungalows making it a real hot spot for those looking to retire just inland from the busy and exciting seaside town of Skegness. Often mentioned as having a traditional community spirit Burgh Le Marsh has much more to offer than initially meets the eye. With a resident population of around 2,500 there remains a vibrant village centre with several traditional shops, convenience store and mini supermarket, pubs, café’s and restaurants from Chinese to traditional fayre at the windmill restaurant and traditional fish and chips of course.

There’s plenty of holiday accommodation at the inns, holiday cottages and static caravan and lodge sites. Don’t miss the garden centre on the edge of the town, always well worth a visit and a coffee at their refurbished ‘Basils’ café.

If you prefer the quieter side of life, Burgh le Marsh is positioned a few miles inland and is surrounded by countryside and farmland and is perfect for countryside walks with numerous public footpaths (ideal for the enthusiastic dog walker), including to and from Gunby Hall country house,- a homely country house dated 1700 set in 8 acres of Victorian walled gardens with 1500 acres of countryside, at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The perfect place for spotting all kinds of wildlife.

Burgh le Marsh also offers a primary school for young families, with a grammar and secondary school just along the road in Skegness (or in Alford or Louth).

Burgh le Marsh offers a type of property for every buyer with home styles ranging from 1 and 2 bedroom flats to some very exclusive 3 and 4 bedroom detached houses, with a great range of bungalows of all sizes to suit any budget.

A regular bus service runs along the A158, diverting into Burgh for connections to Skegness, Boston, Alford and the beautiful historic city of Lincoln with Lincoln castle and cathedral (where several blockbuster films have been shot including The DaVinci Code and Napoleon).

If you’re looking to travel further afield, a short bus or taxi ride will take you to Skegness train station which offers a direct rail line to Nottingham via Boston, Sleaford and Grantham with links to Lincoln and London.
