North East Lincolnshire is an area located centrally in the UK on the East Coast. It may not be one of the most well-known of areas but this hidden gem boasts miles of pristine coastline, gentle rolling countryside and great transport links.
More for your money
The cost of housing, whether that is mortgages or rent take up high percentages of salaries, especially in the South and cities. So how much further would your salary go if house prices were over 50%* cheaper in North East Lincolnshire than in other parts of the UK. In fact the Humber area (which includes North East Lincolnshire) has one of the lowest average weekly expenditure on mortgages in the UK, so you’ll have more money left in your pocket every month.
You can expect to purchase a 4-bedroom character property from as little as £170,000* with more luxurious options for between £200,000 and £300,000.
The area’s housing stock also provides great choice of styles so whether you prefer the charm of period properties, the sleek lines of contemporary builds or the quirky charm of rural conversions, you are sure to be able to find your dream property at a price you can afford.
Pretty villages and vibrant towns
The nature of the area means that North East Lincolnshire is full of pretty rural villages with great communities and vibrant small towns with a friendly and independent outlook. Many people who move to the area choose to live in the surrounding villages because it gives them beautiful homes, setting in peaceful countryside yet still being only minutes away from larger towns such as Grimsby and Cleethorpes. If the coast is your thing, then Cleethorpes is a seaside resort that has stood the test of time and retains its traditional charm and popularity (and you can be in walking distance of the beach!)
