You can simply wander the local lanes and call for lunch and a pint at the local pub in Fulbeck, or venture further a field and indulge in some Christmas shopping in Lincoln. You can enjoy the full Christmas experience at Doddington Hall or head into historic Lincoln itself for some wonderful Christmas shopping experiences which will meet all of your needs; from the small private boutiques in the picturesque heritage areas of the Bailgate and Steep Hill to the High Street where you can find all of the shops you will recognise.
