Rainy Days and Sundays at Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa Antiques Fair ~Lincolnshire ~Events

Recently Pirate Mick and I went to an ‘Antique and Collectors Fair’ at Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. 
The weather was not good.  Very cold and very wet. I need not had bothered about what to wear as I never had to take off my coat but luckily I was wearing my faux fur leopard print coat and Irregular Choice Miaow boots, so still stylish.  Glamour at all times!! 
When we arrived at ‘Petwood’  {irate Mick and I sat in the bar in front of the roaring fire and had coffee. This gave me chance to take in the surroundings.  Petwood is an historic building and was used in the Second World War as an  Officers’ Mess for 617 Squadron, otherwise known as ‘The DamBusters‘.
It was in 1945 it reverted to a hotel.  It is seeped in history and well worth a look at the walls around the hotel displaying the memorabilia.

 The hotel has had a refurbishment and is very popular with diners.  There was a pianist playing to accompany the diners for Sunday lunch. Very pleasant.The fair was of a high class.  There were around twenty stalls, mainly selling silver and China.  The prices were top end and so you would not get a bargain but there was some pretty pieces. The stalls were nicely presented and friendly stall holders.

After the fair we headed to Woodhall Spa.  I was pleasantly surprised to see most of the shops open. As it was Sunday I thought they would all be closed.
The lovely delicatessen shop was open and we purchased some cakes and a Rubik cube tin. Very retro!  The window displays always show artistic flair The serving staff could do with being a little more warmer!! Service with a smile costs nothing but achieves lots!
We then popped across the road to one of my favourite shops in the area
‘The Book Fayre’
It is a coffee shop, book store, second hand books, cards, stationary, gifts, toys. These are a few of my favourite things. (I think there’s a song in there somewhere!!) 
If you are in Lincolnshire then I definitely recommend a visit to  ‘Woodhall Spa’.  There are some hidden gems waiting to be discovered! Including a small ‘Kinema in the Woods’, a 1940’s tea room, a Dambusters memorial and a Lido at the Jubilee Park, with an outdoor heated swimming pool that allows midnight swimming on some dates!!  Why not go and see for yourself and have a splendid day out!
