History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Beyond the formal gardens are several nature trails, and a kitchen garden. Closer to hand there is a turf maze, a small water garden, and a classical 'Temple of the Winds', as well as a statue of Shakespeare.
Immediately beside Doddington Hall is the Farm Shop and Restaurant, whee you can buy local produce, including that grown in the Hall's own market kitchen, and home-baked goods.
St Peter's church, Doddington, is located immediately beside the Hall, and is open during Hall opening hours. The church is primarily a Georgian restoration of an earlier Decorated Gothic building.
Doddington Hall For Families
Doddington Hall was a hit with our children, ages 7 and 13. Though there are no overt childrens' areas such as playgrounds, the Hall has tried to involve youngsters by offering a 'Unicorn Quiz', which our youngest enjoyed. Also, the extensive gardens offer the younger generation a chance to run about, and the turf maze was quite a hit with both of our children.
NB. Do not mistake this Doddington Hall with the house of the same name in Cheshire.
Doddington Hall is on the B1190, signposted from the A46 and A57, 5 miles west of Lincoln.
