About the Property

This unique business is known as the Main Road Garage and Langrick Bridge Stores and Post Office. It is located in the village of Brothertoft, which is about 4 miles northwest of the market town of Boston. Situated adjacent the scenic River Witham and just south of Langrick Bridge alongside the B1192, the business is ideally situated to service the passing through road traffic, local community and boaters travelling between Boston and Lincoln.
The business is a hub for the local community and enjoys a variety of income streams from convenience store sales, fuel sales (including red diesel coal, kindling and logs), chandlery services (moorings and pump outs), Post Office commissions and letting a one-bedroom flat. The property is freehold and includes a 3-bedroom cottage with views on the river and a 1 bedroom apartment above the shop currently tenanted long term.

Property Details


This multi-facet business is a family run concern with our clients, a successful husband and wife team running the business since 2011.

Revenue is derived from a well-stocked convenience store, petrol station with additional red diesel services, chandlery with a wide variety of products for passing boaters, pump out station and boat moorings.

We believe the business has huge scope for future development with a new owner in situ with enthusiasm and drive to take the business to the next level. Perhaps by extending opening hours or embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the assets of the business.

In addition, the business benefits from a 1 bedroom self-contained flat suitable for letting out to generate additional income.

The business is complete with superb 3-bedroom owner’s accommodation, ideal perhaps for a couple or small family looking for a life style change in this beautiful and desirable location.


Langrick Bridge Stores occupies a prominent trading position on the heavily used commuter road between the B1192 running towards Coningsby and A1121 towards Boston, Lincolnshire.

The route is regularly used by heavy goods vehicles, commuters and tourists alike. The store nestles within idyllic and stunning surroundings and is situated alongside the navigable River Witham.

The business is within easy reach of Lincoln to the north along the A15 and Sleaford and Kings Lynn from the A17.
