An attractive property which is well interpreted to explain the life and achievements of Isaac Newton and the importance of his childhood home. Currently a good season for visiting, as there are plenty of apples falling.

If your driving come down the A1 & come off at Grantham. It’s about 5 miles from there, all sign posted, plus whilst your in the area, I also recommend going to see Belton House. Hope this helps !
