Address: The Den at Star Fen, Star Fen Cottage, Star Fen, Heckington, Lincolnshire, NG34 9ND, United Kingdom
The Den is set in the idyllic surroundings of the tiny hamlet of Star Fen, just outside Heckington, Sleaford, Lincolnshire only two minutes from the A17 trunk road midway between the A1 exits for Newark and Grantham and North Norfolk.  
You can get to us by:

From the West, take the A17 towards Sleaford. After East Heckington, turn right towards South Kyme, then first left towards Heckington. Star Fen will be on your right hand side.

From the East, take the A17 from Sleaford towards Kings Lynn. Most satnav systems instruct you to turn left down a country lane. This route is great if it is a nice sunny day, but perilous in wintery conditions. So ignore this and continue along the A17 and turn right into Heckington. Go through the village and out the other side, picking up the signs towards South Kyme until you reach Star Fen on your left (about 1 mile outside Heckington)


The nearest mainline station is Grantham on the East Coast mainline, only 1 hour and 10 minutes into London. The connecting train to Heckington is the Nottingham/Skegness train with a journey time to Heckington of about 30 minutes. Star Fen Cottage is about 40 minutes walk from Heckington station. There are local taxi companies if you prefer, or if we are available we are happy to collect you by car.


The Fens offer excellent cycling for those with an allergy to climbing hills. Indoor storage for bikes is available in our barn. Bicycles are accepted on the Grantham/Heckington train without restrictions. Check mainline operating companies for restrictions on other trains.

Secure indoor parking can be arranged if required. Please contact us for details.
