The village is noted for its nearby golf club and is recognised as the base for England Golf, being the governing body for amateur golf in England and also boasts The Kinema in the Woods (the only fully functioning cinema in the UK to employ back projection, tucked away in the woodland).

The scheme on Tattershall Road, to be named Woodcock Grange”, is HGP’s first investment alongside Rippon Homes and is set to deliver a mix of one to four bedroom home styles, including bungalows, which will benefit from single or double garages as well as a private garden. The homeswill be suitable for a range of buyers including first-time buyers, singles, couples, retirees as well as families and will be available for sale towards the end of 2022.
