Family Day Out in Lincolnshire

Looking for a family day out in Lincolnshire? When visiting Lincolnshire, there is much to do in this picturesque and historical location. Here at The Elms, we have compiled the top 6 must visit historical attractions that can be seen within the beautiful city of Lincoln. They vary from historical churches to the best historical restaurants in Lincoln City, but they are something the whole family can enjoy on a day out.

 

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral stood for almost 300 years as the tallest building in the world. The cathedral is filled with intricate detail varying from Norman styling in the age of William conqueror, all the way to gothic style detailing. The Cathedral is covered in fine carvings and detailing.

Lincoln Cathedral also benefits from having one of the only original four remaining Magna Carte documents in existence. It is the only one to bear the name of the city.

 

Lincoln Castle

While visiting Lincoln Cathedral, why not visit the magnificent Lincoln Castle at the same time. Located a short walk from the Cathedral they make the ideal pair of attractions.

Why not take a walk along the medieval wall and get magnificent views over Lincolnshire, then visit the Victorian Prison located within the grounds and immerse yourselves in the life and routine of Victorian prisoners.

 

Doddington Hall & Gardens

The historical hall and gardens of Doddington offers an experience of family living through the ages. Doddington Hall was built in 1600 and has never been sold.

The estate is currently open to the public, with group tours, private tours and school tours proving to be very popular. Guided tours are also available for those wishing to gain even more in depth knowledge about the property and the surrounding grounds.

 

Medieval Bishops Palace

Located almost in the shadow of the hugely popular Lincoln Cathedral. The Bishops palace has views over the historical parts of Lincoln city and the countryside surrounding.

The palace was once one of the most important buildings in England. It was the administrative centre of the largest diocese in medieval England. The palace also benefits from the beautiful palace gardens that are ideal to relax in and enjoy some peace and tranquillity.

 

Jew’s House

The Jews House is located in one of the oldest building in Lincoln. The Jews restaurant offers the finest food served by the friendliest staff, in a relaxing and warming atmosphere.

The Jews house is renowned for its excellent quality food cooked by Chef Gavin Aitkenhead and service, provided by Samantha tonkins and her service team.

Be warned you will need to pre book a table at this extremely popular Lincoln restaurant.

 

St Mary Magdalene

The St Mary Magdalene church was built in 1317, over what was previously an older church, which was knocked down during the extension of Lincoln Cathedral. The church was also designed with a barrel roof, which has proved to be very popular with visitors and is a great feat of engineering.

The church holds regular services, in which all visitors are welcome. Regular concerts are also held at the venue, throughout the year.

To conclude, here at the Elms we are not one of the top 6 historical sites in Lincoln although we have been around for over 40 years now. Not quite the length of time as some of these magnificent attractions that can be found in nearby Lincoln. But if you want to find out more about us, enquire today or even come and visit us.

Enjoying Retirement Home Living

Is Over 55 Living Tough in The Modern Age?

Are you over 55 and worried about your finances or what the future may hold? A recent study shows that more than 60% of over 55’s worry about their finances and getting through to retirement with very minimal financial worries. And in the modern day, this figure continues to grow. With the cost of living in general going up and life just moving at a much faster rate, this is no surprise….

So what are the solutions?

Here at The Elms, we’ve put together an exclusive retirement park / village, where over 50s can reside and see out their retirement and beyond in dedicated retirement homes. Most of the residents had the notion and vision that they could clear up their finances by selling their home and freeing up equity by moving into a retirement property here at The Elms and enjoy park home living.

So is one possible solution to downgrade the size of your existing home?

Many of our residents have done exactly this, and are now living comfortably within the confines of a retirement village. This is an excellent way to really invest in your future and free up equity.

With house prices at an all time high here in the UK, many people in general are downgrading the size of their home to save money. This is why there has been a boost in sales over the last decade for people choosing to purchase and live in a dedicated retirement village. Here at The Elms, we have over 339 properties that are classified as retirement properties, where people over the age of 50 can purchase a home, just as normal, but here you will be moving into a retirement community – where you will be surrounded by other people over the age of 50. This is by no means a care home, but a village where over 50s can reside. It doesn’t matter whether you’re retired or not, if your over 50, then you meet the requirements to purchase a retirement property here at The Elms.

But what can buying a retirement property achieve?

So whilst you think that life over 55 is quite a daunting prospect, here at The Elms we offer a viable solution for you to free up any equity you have on your existing home, and possibly even live mortgage free!

Just like one of our residents Sally Young –

So with Sally’s story in mind, if you’re concerned with over 55 living, then here at The Elms we can offer a huge way to lift that weight.

Remembering John Kinch

3 October 1929 – 14 November 2016

“I didn’t want to follow other people’s footsteps. I wanted to make my own tread in the snow.”

John Kinch certainly did make his own tread with spectacular freedom from the usual petty rules and conventions which bind and limit so many of us. He believed in himself and stayed true to himself throughout his entire life. He was a man of honour, integrity, of truth and of trust. A man with love and kindness in his huge heart and courage in his soul. He was a husband, father, grandfather, fighter, farmer, miner, boxer, businessman, builder, singer, inventor… and, above all… inspiration.

Here we pay tribute to his life and share the history of John Kinch and how his vision and dedication created The Elms as it is today – a retirement dream for the over 50’s, where so many live happily with peace, tranquillity and security.

19450001

John was born in Kington Hospital at 3.20am on 3rd October 1929 into a family of first-generation farmers. He went home to Byton Farm, North Herefordshire, where he grew into a much loved child.

Like many farming children of the time, he was given responsibility from a very young age. As a four year old he was bottle feeding the tiddling lambs which had been rejected by their mothers. When he wasn’t much older, John fulfilled the role of cider carrier for the men working in the fields which of course led to him helping himself to a good drink of his own!

As he grew, John really disliked school. Until he was 10 years old, he walked daily to the local school, but he saw no point in learning about history and such things when all he wanted to do was get home and drive the tractor, which he did from the age of 12. Moving on from the local school, he travelled three and a half miles on his bicycle every day to the top school in Presteigne, where he seized every opportunity to play truant! So when he was 12 he went to Lucton, a prestigious boarding school about ten miles from his home, where, in those days, the dormitories were so cold that any condensation on the children’s blankets froze them. John was frequently and severely ill, and when he finally left school and returned to the farm aged 15 and a half, it took months of good care before he regained his health.

John was never a strong child and, indeed, during his early years, he had to put up with unwanted attention from some pretty serious bullies. But when he moved into his teenage years, John spent many hours building up his strength and made sure he dealt with his bullies and those who bullied others – a natural protector.

When his schooling ended, John threw himself into work with a dedication, drive and enthusiasm which was to stay with him for the whole of his life. He was the farm’s tractor driver, working from dawn to dusk and beyond. For John, work was something to be taken to the highest possible levels of achievement and he never expected others to do anything that he would be unwilling to do himself. Despite his protestations that he was a poor scholar, John had a razor sharp brain with a massive and incisive intelligence which allowed him to expand his business interests into a large and hugely successful series of enterprises. He wasn’t afraid to try something new, venturing from farming into property, transport and even into the ownership of a tin mine in Cornwall which he turned into a valued educational and tourist facility. In each area of his work he found ways to improve quality, yield and outcome. Woe betide anyone who tried to pull the wool over his eyes when it came to doing a job properly, because he could literally see when something was a millimetre out of true.

john-kinch-80

His drive to achieve the very best standards meant all those who dealt with him could rest assured that he would look after them as he would look after his own. He had the ability to stand back and see solutions where other people may not even be aware of a problem. He was a man of soaring integrity who said that aiming to be the best didn’t mean being better than anyone else.

Working as hard as he did, and having to provide for a growing family, meant that John didn’t have much free time, but when he did he used it well. Not only was he a darts champion, but also a professional boxer. John was also a talented and classically trained singer and did in fact turn down a job with the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company.

John’s business empire continued to expand until the 1970’s when, at the age of 48 and through no fault of his own, John was faced with the disastrous loss of much of what he had worked so hard to achieve. But John, unlike many others would have done, picked himself up and went down the mines, where he stayed until he was 53. Although the work in the pit was hard, he added to his own challenges by setting out to rebuild what he had lost, by purchasing The Elms. Using all his strength and working 18 hours a day, John moved between the mine and The Elms, building back up his family’s fortunes. Failure simply did not exist as a possibility in John’s mind.

on-tractor-on-fossdyke-19840001

John had a vision to turn what was then a holiday caravan park into the award winning residential park for the over 50’s that it is today. All the children played their role in helping out over the holidays and weekends but none more so than Stuart, the youngest child who is now Managing Director.

The Elms meant a great deal to John and he really dedicated himself to making what he thought was the best park home park. He undertook research in America on park homes and in true John Kinch style built his own specification park home, not choosing to simply buy an ‘off the shelf’ model but upgrading each and every aspect to create something unique and of a superior standard. He was awarded runner up in the Park Owner of the Year awards in 2005 and won the Bronze accolade for the Elms in the David Bellamy Conservation Award which has now been succeeded to Silver.

During his years John had the great blessing of knowing the enduring love of two beautiful and wonderful women. He met Joy when she was a child, living at Manor Farm, which John’s family had taken on. They both got on well and as time went on, they came together and were married in 1957 and had four children, Ann, Johnny, Tracey and Stuart. When the marriage reached its natural conclusion, John and Joy were able to remain friends.

Later, John was fortunate to meet Marion, a very special lady who had arrived from Canada and was travelling with a friend. After many missed encounters, it was apparent that this was a match that was meant to be; they married and were blessed with the birth of their Son, Sam.

john0001

When the time came to say our farewells to John, his efforts and love shone through with an overwhelming amount of people at the church. Many residents of The Elms, along with colleagues, family and friends came to pay their respects. He was a credit to the industry and a beacon of intention for how things should be done. He touched so many people’s lives, giving willingly and without any expectation of reward. Kind and generous, decent and honourable, he helped to change many lives for the better and he will be remembered always.

John Kinch - founder of The Elms

The Elms – Far From a Retirement Home!

Ever wondered what Retirement Home Living is all about? Well here at The Elms, we can’t really give you the answer to that! The simple answer as to why is because The Elms is not a retirement home! We are a dedicated retirement village – where over 50s can live independently and purchase a home just like any other. What makes us different is that we have simply set up a retirement village for people over 50 years old – which is far from the traditional retirement home philosophy!

And this is the story of how The Elms has come to be….

Back in the 1970’s, the Kinch Group acquired a portion of land in Lincolnshire with the vision of building homes on this plot to be sold independently. The vision was then refined, with the intent of making this space a dedicated retirement community, where homes are sold to those over 50 years old – not the traditional retirement home living type property, but an actual property that you completely own. And live independently through.

From the 80s to today!

And with this in mind… The Elms was born…

The idea was never to build a retirement home where senior people could simply see out the remaining years of their life. The plan was to build independent homes where those over 50 could purchase the homes and be amongst like-minded people. This is why the Torksey Lock area was chosen as the destination area, as it has easy access to the things that we need within everyday life, and is located in a peaceful Lincolnshire location.

Amazing transformation at the park

And this is why our properties are in such high demand…

At the moment, we are at capacity with our properties in terms of plots. So there is no space now to purchase any plots. However, properties do become readily available and you can also check local property sites to see which of the properties the residents have listed for sale. Click to view our Available Properties.

The Elms through the years

So why do people choose to move to a dedicated retirement area…

So lets confirm, we are not a retirement home and residents here at The Elms do not live the quote ‘retirement home living’ lifestyle.

When our residents moved here, it was with the intention to enjoy the more active years of their life. Not to simply let life slip them by. The concept of a dedicated retired area is not a new one.

However, it is one that is now quickly becoming an option for many people over 50 and retirees in general. As financially, this can be an excellent chance for you to free up some equity and really enjoy these stages of your life.

Retirement Loneliness: Are Retirement Villages The Answer to Combat Retirement Isolation?

The thought of Retirement Loneliness can be a very scary but realistic prospect for many. And lets face it; no one wants to live in a care home. But a novel concept that has been in the UK for many years now is gaining much traction. So are Park Homes and Retirement Villages and truly the better alternative to care homes?

Are dedicated Retirement Villages the answer to the retirement loneliness epidemic?

The idea of a dedicated retirement village was brought to the marketplace through the momentum it gained in the USA. And it’s widely becoming a popular choice for many over 50’s here in the UK, as it isn’t necessarily the elderly who can benefit from such places.

But lets think about the typical journey that people take to retirement in the first place. Well, having spent most of your life working, it seems as though people often look forward to the day they retire, as this can be the start of that path to freedom you dreamt of. However, many people are further saving their equity by investing in dedicated retirement properties….

But you maybe thinking well how do these dedicated retirement places combat retirement loneliness? Well, its often stated that people suffer from depression as a result of going from working all their lives, to then ultimately having time to yourself, and not knowing what to do with it.

It can be quite sobering when all those around you are getting on with their lives in a world that is rapidly changing and evolving. The good news is however, that you too can make a change for the better. And not even experience what retirement loneliness feels like.

Combating Retirement Loneliness  Living Independently For Seniors John's Woodland Opening

The main thing that people struggle with is trying to find a routine to follow on a daily basis. It’s hard to go from working full time to then retiring and not having the same schedule or even an outline of a plan on a daily basis.

But how can retirement villages combat this?

Well, with a retirement village, you have the convenience of living as you normally would, but you would just be in a community of other people just like yourselves who are also retirees. The benefit of this is that you can instantly form friendships with like-minded people around you, and begin to fill your days with activities alongside your new friends.

Here at The Elms, we have created a fantastic retirement community all situated within rural Lincolnshire. Within our community, there is never a sense of Retirement Loneliness from our residents – as there is always something happening here.

And this is the key; if you find somewhere that takes away the feeling of isolation, then it definitely combats that lonely feeling. If you have kids or grandkids that have been to university away from home, then they too will find it strange at first, but they soon adapt. The same can be said for our residents, who at first are slightly taken back by the change, but they also soon adapt. Its never too late to start a new chapter in your life, and its not too late to combat that lonely feeling after retirement.

Learning Fun New Skills

If you’ve ever thought to yourself that you’re too old to learn new skills, then think again! For example you may have thought to yourself that you’ve always wanted to learn how to ballroom dance or take that art class, or even how to play the piano – then now is the time for you to pick up those skills! And there is an age-old adage which states that ‘you only age when stop dreaming’ and we encourage you to keep dreaming and keep learning!

Dedicated Retirement Reservation / Community

If you are looking to downsize your current home or looking for a place where other retirees are, you may be interested to know that there are dedicated retirement villages throughout the UK where you can purchase a retirement home. Now lets be clear, these are not care homes, but these are independent park homes, where you can live amongst other retirees. A common thought that many retirees have is the awful thought of loneliness. Retirement can be a daunting thought for many people and understandably so, but it does not have to be a lonely experience. Here at The Elms Retirement Village, we have many residents who own their homes here that had the same thoughts and insecurities about retirement that you probably have. However, we have built up one of the most renowned retirement communities here in the UK. And there is always something happening to have you feeling far from bored and lonely!

So in conclusion, there are many different ways you can invigorate your life after retirement as outlined above, but the underlying theme here is that you are in complete control. And it is your decision to make on how you invest in your future, and just because you’re now retired does not mean that your future is bleak. Try new things, expand your experiences and awaken some those ambitions you had that may have been hidden.

Top 6 Places to Visit in Lincolnshire

Being as though we are based here in Lincolnshire, we are obviously going to be biast and say that Lincolnshire is the best place to live in the UK! Quite the bold statement, but there is lots to do here! And here at The Elms, we may be home to one of the finest Retirement Villages here in the UK, but there is so much to see. The question is where do you start? Our residents here at the park come from far and wide but all agree that Lincolnshire has lots to offer. So if you are planning a weekend away here or even looking to move then we have complied a list of top 6 places to visit in Lincolnshire. Obviously there are more, but we will give you our top 6 to start with.

1.) Lincoln Cathedral 

Probably the most infamous place to visit in Lincolnshire, the Cathedral was once the tallest building in the world! Situated at the top of Steep Hill, the cathedral is a must see for anyone visiting Lincolnshire.

The cathedral is edged in stone as one of the most historic buildings in the UK. In the 11th century, William the Conqueror commissioned the building and was eventually completed in 1092. In 1300, it became the tallest building in the world – this lasted until 1549.

Today, the cathedral is the focal point for many visitors, as there is something for everyone to see. Floor tours are available and run throughout the year. Floor tours usually last around an hour, and cover all elements which includes the history and architecture as it relates to the cathedral.

To find out more about prices and opening times click here to find out… http://www.visitlincoln.com/shop/joint-ticket

2.) Doddington Hall & Gardens  

Another historical period building with stunning features and gardens to view and visit… The Doddington Hall building itself has been in existence since 1600 and has never been sold since! A visit to Doddington offers a vast insight into family life through the ages. And also gives an insight into the challenges of looking after such an estate in the 21st century.

Today, the Halls and Garden are very much open to the public, with group bookings for private tours and school visits being very common. Exclusive guided tours are also available. There is also much more to do here. To find out more, visit the website. www.doddingtonhall.com/

3.) Steephill  

Steep Hill is the most visited street in the UK! And the name says it all. We challenge you to visit the street and experience the steepness for yourself! The street itself is home to many shops and stores – which are widely popular. Again, there is an element of history steeped within the street! (No pun intended), as its almost walking back in time, but with a modern eclectic of shops, stores and places to eat. To find out more about the shops available on the street, click here: http://www.shoplincoln.co.uk/steep-hill-the-strait

4.) Museum of Lincolnshire Life  

Pretty self-explanatory this one, and is free to enter! The museum of Lincolnshire life is a historical collection of Lincoln life from 1750 to the present day.  The Museum of Lincolnshire Life offers a wide range of services including exhibitions in a community gallery, group quiz sessions and an education program linked to the National Curriculum. (Cite: http://www.visitlincoln.com/things-to-do/museum-of-lincolnshire-life)

5.) The Collection Museum 

http://www.thecollectionmuseum.com/

The Collection Museum is Lincolnshire’s premier Art and Archeology museum. Operated by Lincolnshire County Council, the museum also works in conjunction with the City of Lincoln Council, Arts Council England and various other institutions to add a stamp of quality and assurance. And again, this Museum is free to enter. Click here to find out more about the Museum.

6.) Natureland Seal Sanctuary

Something slightly further out but still within the boundaries of Lincolnshire, the Natureland has something to offer the entire family. Based within Skegness, the Sanctuary was initially a place of rescue for baby seals where they would be treated and cared for and then eventually returned to their natural environment. However, the home is now home to Penguins, Meerkats, Tropical Birds, Sea Life Exhibit and much more. Click to see more about what’s on offer at Natureland – http://www.skegnessnatureland.co.uk/activities.php

So these are our top 6 places to visit in Lincolnshire, but there are a whole host of others. And obviously when it comes to the top retirement villages in the area, look no further than The Elms! If you’re in the market for Park Homes in Lincolnshire, then get in touch with us.
