Getting There

A circular walk from the village of Doddington near Lincoln in Lincolnshire. The walk explores the distinctive countryside around Doddington and the parkland of Doddington Hall, with lovely views of the hall, the fishpond and the pyramid folly along the way. If you wish to visit the hall and gardens after your walk, opening is limited so check on the Doddington Hall website. This walk is part of the Stepping Out network, published through a collaboration with North Kesteven District Council to inspire more people to enjoy the district's landscapes, ancient woodland, historic buildings and charming villages. Entry to the parkland is free of charge and dogs are welcome on the estate paths. The walk is relatively flat with only very gentle gradients. It follows a mixture of stone farm tracks, grass bridleways and paths across pastures and crop fields. Some sections can be very churned and muddy after rain and in the winter months, so good boots are a must (and wellingtons recommended in the wettest months). There are no stiles on route, but you will need to negotiate a few kissing gates. Some of the parkland pastures you cross are likely to be holding cattle or sheep. Please remember the Countryside code. Some paths are provided by kind permission of Doddington Hall, please only use the waymarked paths. Where young stock may be present, please make sure your dog is under firm control in these areas. Doddington Hall reserve the right to change/close permissive paths for health and safety reasons. OS Maps Explorer 271 and 272. Allow 1 hour. If you are looking for refreshments, Doddington Hall has its own farm shop and cafe or there are pubs a short drive away in Skellingthorpe, Eagle or Thorpe on the Hill. Nearby attractions include a few retail stores within the Doddington estate, Whisby Nature Reserve and Daisy Made Ice Cream in Skellingthorpe.

Doddington village is located about 5 miles west of Lincoln. The walk starts and finishes at the free Doddington Hall and Gardens car park on the main B1190 road within the village. There are brown tourism signs to guide you from the A46. Approximate post code LN6 4RB.

First to Review

A lovely little walk with my 5 year old. We took a slight detour to the Pyramid. Well maintained and easy to follow.
