Back in August we stopped by Doddington Hall on our way to Lincoln with Ian, our Ex-Pat friend from Spain. There's a decent coffee shop and farm shop that sells good local produce. There is also an incredible cycle shop (the biggest in Lincolnshire) which has its own coffee shop as well. During the summer it also staged a sculpture exhibition. The dragon stands outside the hall, and visitors are invited to hang strips of brightly coloured cloth on the sculpture.

Behind the hall is a small lake complete with arched bridge.
There was also a very elegant sculpture on the water.
Of course, if you have a decent sized body of water, then you'll also have ducks and the Doddington ducklings seemed to have learnt very quickly that humans can be a great source of food.
There are also several walks around the local area that you can follow. There are worse ways to spend a couple of hours.
