About the head brewer's house

The Head Brewer’s House has been home to generations of the Batemans family, as well as brewers, coopers, and boilermen who preferred to live near the Brewery to get an early start at work.

Located in the small market town of Wainfleet, this property boasts a swimming pool in the large garden, complemented by an entertaining area perfect for al fresco dining. Additionally, it features an eight-person hot tub situated under a pergola-style roof.

Spacious accommodation awaits you with two large living rooms, a large kitchen, and six bedrooms with two bathrooms. Refurbished in 2021 to provide holiday accommodation, this lovely home offers private parking for four cars, with additional on-road parking available.

About the location

On a clear day you can see for miles, all the way to Hunstanton. Yes it’s flat, but as they say at Batemans Brewery “the countryside might be flat but the beer isn’t.”

There is a mainline railway station, but the town is away from the main A52 refreshed by the fresh sea breezes from the marsh. Wainfleet is a great place to be based to explore all the attractions in the area.

Family entertainment

Batemans Brewery has been passed down through four generations of our family, and along with it a passion that’s never abated.

Our hard-fought independence is a wonderful thing, allowing us to continue to brew great beer and run successful pubs.

That success has never been at the expense of other people. As our grandfather, Harry Bateman, once told his fellow brewers: “In your business, don’t ever lose the human touch with your employees, customers and tenants.” These are the wise, caring words we live by.

Wainfleet is a small market town in Lincolnshire. It has great transport links. Either by car just off the A52, 5 miles from Skegness, by train on the Skegness Mainline or by bus, with the main service picking up either just over the river or in the market place, there is also a daily National Express Service from London.

There’s so much to do locally. The attractions of the tourist resort, Skegness, are only 5 miles away. Then there’s the Lincolnshire Wolds, Lincoln Cathedral, long stretches of beach, dog walks, swimming pools, golf courses, fairgrounds, country pubs, night clubs, museums, or maybe you fancy a Brewery tour!

Most of the rooms have smart flat screen TV’s which can access loads of TV shows and films on demand + YouTube.

There are books and magazines to browse and board games to play. But we think you’ll be too busy!
