The Lawn, Union Road, Lincoln, LN1 3BU


The main building was developed in 1819 as a purpose built hospital for the pioneering treatment and rehabilitation of the mentally ill.
The main complex still retains many original elements and the whole site is listed as of Special Architectural or Historic Interest (Grade II).

Within the property R W Stokes have purchased they will relocate their coffee roasting operations, training, commercial sales and head office functions and will re-open and manage a major first floor performance space.

Surplus accommodation is to be let off for other retail, restaurant, leisure and office uses compatible with the vision that Stokes and the Council have for the site as a whole. Charlotte House will remain as a Boutique Hotel.


Lincoln is a major retail and tourist destination and the administrative capital of Lincolnshire.

It continues to be an important specialist engineering centre but the last 20 years have also seen it develop as a major educational centre with the University of Lincoln less than half a mile south of the subject property with over 14,000 students and BG University a specialist teaching centre just over half a mile to the north east. Over £20m was recently spent on the restoration of the adjoining Lincoln Castle with its Magna Carta Vault while east of the Castle the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral attracts 3.7 million visitors a year.

The Cathedral commands the hillside but the Castle and The Lawn complete the set of outstanding heritage buildings overlooking the City Centre, linked by a new open pedestrian route through the Castle. They are woven into the historic fabric of uphill Lincoln by a maze of Streets and buildings established over 2000 years.
