ENJOY A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
If you are looking for a completely unique holiday destination to venture to, then The Tower at RAF Wainfleet will definitely tick that box! It certainly provides quirky accommodation for that unusual holiday whether you’re a couple, a group as large as 22, or even the family looking for an interesting place to stay that will keep the kids entertained.
Being as the tower is situated in the middle of our family run farm there are plenty of things to do and see on your doorstep. Including farm walks, cycle rides, a fishing lake, exploring the marsh and a secluded but picturesque grass paddock with pond ideal for picnics and relaxing. Not to mention the local wildlife park just down the road. On site itself there is a communal games room equipped with darts board, table tennis and pool table so far plus the addition of a Lynx military helicopter for the kids to enjoy. Soon to be turned into accommodation for all ages.
Stunning views are provided by the control room at the top of the tower, where you can still see the remains of boats that were once used as targets on the range. The marshland you can see over the last sea bank is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and if you’re a bird watcher or enjoy a good sunrise and sunset, you’ve definitely found the right place to stay!
This isn't just any old accommodation, The Tower has an incredible history and RAF Wainfleet is in actual fact an old training ground for the infamous Dambusters. In more recent years before it ended it's military use in 2010, F-15's, A10's and F1-11s were a common site here for target practice too.
In the 1970's the original wooden structure was replaced with the existing tower and surrounding buildings that you still see standing here today. It was therefore essential to take great care when converting it to it's current guise, to not to change it visually on the outside in order to retain it's heritage and maintain it's dignity as an RAF base.
Not only is the Tower remarkable for it's very own uniqueness and heritage, it's also surrounded by a huge host of equally entertaining things to do all year round too. The local area has an undoubtedly incredible aviation history with many an airbase to visit, including the East Kirkby aviation heritage centre and the Battle of Britain Memorial flight visitor centre at RAF Coningsby.
Being located so closely to the coast, it has some stunning wildlife on it's door step with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, Gibraltar point nature reserve and Skegness Aquarium all within 10 miles from the Towers doorstep. With Skegness and Batemans Brewery just down the road, there’s also plenty of places to be fed and watered whilst being entertained at the same time!
