Kirkby on Bain is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies on the River Bain between Horncastle and Coningsby, and just west of the A153 road. Neighbouring villages are Roughton, Haltham, Tattershall Thorpe and Tumby.

The Ebrington Arms on Main Street is a 16th Century village inn renowned for excellent food and drink, and the village is also home to Kirkby on Bain Primary School, recognised as a happy, inclusive and deeply caring school.

Rose Cottage offers bed and breakfast accommodation in its self contained 400 year old mud and stud thatch cottage, and the Woodhall Spa Camping and Caravanning site in Wellsyke Lane is only a walk away from our village centre.


Bainside Coarse Fishery certificated Caravan Club site also welcomes members to its well stocked lake beside the river Bain.

The Lincolnshire Wildlife nature reserve at the Kirby on Bain gravel pits is also an excellent bird-watching site, as in spring and summer the shallow water, with its numerous spits and islands, suits many breeding birds.

Also Kirkby on Bain is home to manufacturer Millhouse, who have been creating quality wooden toys, furniture and activity equipment for schools, nurseries and the home for over 30 years.



The village has an active Parish Council which meets regularly and communicates with the public in various ways, including this website.
