Since 2006 Doddington has been a much-loved family home. They have continued Claire's parents work in devoting ourselves to the upkeep, repair and progression of the Doddington Estate including; the development of the Farm Shop, Bike Shop, Café, Restaurant, Coffee Shop, Home Store, Farrow & Ball, Country Clothing Store, Bauble Barn, Christmas Tree Sales and Weddings and Events businesses; increasing public access; organising concerts and exhibitions and the development of various accommodation across the estate.
There is always something new to see and do on the estate whether that is inside the Hall, in the five acres of gardens, one of the frequent events, or on one of the estate walks.
Come enjoy everything Doddington Hall has to offer you, your friends and your family.
It's always good to know you're not staying far from tasty food and refreshing drinks! Here are a few suggestion based on the proximity.
The Pyewipe Inn, Saxilby is a jewel in Lincolnshire's crown. The idyllic setting is but a 30 minute walk from Lincoln's picturesque Cathedral City Centre and historic quarter. An easy leisurely leg stretching stroll along Britain's oldest man made waterway, the Roman built Fossdyke Canal, prepares your appetite for the tantalising treats that await you from our bar or restaurant menu.
Popular as a ramblers favourite watering hole, narrowboat mooring point or restaurant for the discerning diner; this fabulous Inn is all things to all folk.
The addition of the Lodge in 2001 makes us the perfect location for weddings, corporate events, conferences or perhaps merely a restaurant with rooms or place for romantics to propose.
