Doddington Hall

Doddington Hall is a beautiful Elizabethan manor house, less than 5 miles from Lincoln city centre.

Still a family home, Doddington Hall has a cosy, intimate atmosphere and stunning gardens. Doddington also has an award-winning Farm Shop, Cafe/Restaurant, clothing store and interior design shop.

At Christmas, Doddington is famous for its Christmas trees and Bauble Barn.

Built between 1595 and 1600 for Thomas Taylor who was a registrar to the Bishop of Lincoln, Doddington Hall has never been sold. It has stayed in the same family for over 400 years.
