Where We Are

Willow Lakes is situated just outside the small village of Foston, just half a mile off the A1 Trunk Road, about half way between Newark and Grantham. Leave the A1 southbound at the Foston turnoff, and follow the road through the village. You will find us at the bottom of the hill on the left. Leave the A1 northbound at the Foston/Long Bennington turnoff, take the right turn signposted Foston and go straight on at the roundabout. Follow the road for about 600 yds, and you will find us on the right, before you get to the village.
