Country pub and a choice of dog walks, Lincolnshire

Some pub opening times and dog rules are still changing. Please check your chosen pub is able to welcome you before making plans.


This part of Lincolnshire rivals the Cotswolds for honey stone cottages and a quiet rural pace. It's a fine place for a dog walk.   'Mad' King George III came for treatment in the Hall here (then a private asylum) and the church houses a monument in his memory. Look out for some quirky sculptures in the village too. These were commissioned by a Major Fitzwilliam in the 1930s.


Car park at the Hare and Hounds.

Walk 1  Best in dry weather!   Turn right from the Hare and Hounds and take the signed footpath towards the nearby village of Barham. It's a straight walk over fields and after just over half-a-mile you'll get to Barham church.  You could turn right here to reach the pleasantly rural Five Horseshoes for a lemonade in their garden before returning over the fields to Greatford.  Just over a mile in all and a lovely walk on a dry sunny day.

Walk 2   Turn left from the Hare and Hounds, cross over the bridge on the other side of the road and walk up to the church. Cross the churchyard and find the passageway back onto the road. Turn left, Greatford Gardens, and walk as far as the gates to Greatford Hall and then join the constrained path. Go over a footbridge and then carry on through the woodland for around 500 yards. At the end of the strip of trees, turn right with the path at the side of a crop field and then bear left into the next field. The path here is usually clear and easy to follow. You should pass a small pond to your left. Pass through a gap in the hedgerow and cross the next field and hop over the stile into the meadow beyond. To avoid more stiles and road-walking we usually turn around here, allowing the dog to be off-lead and happy with a 2-mile walk. Allow an hour or so as there are things to look at and it's a good dawdley kind of walk.
