Amenities within the town of Spilsby include independent shops as well as a Sainsburys Supermarket and we understand Waitrose also makes home deliveries to the village. Also, in the vicinity are the market towns of Louth and Horncastle as well as the city of Lincoln some 30 miles to the west with its direct line to Kings Cross, London.
