Doddington Hall Cherry Blossom Festival

17 - 24 April 2016, Lincoln

Cherry Blossom Festival

Enjoy a visit to us this Spring to gaze on the ultimate symbol of the season, the beautiful and delicate Cherry Blossom.

Stroll down our Cherry Blossom Walk and delight in the vision, capture the perfect picture through gilt frames, and practice part of the ancient Japanese tradition of Hanami by sitting on the Croquet Lawn and gazing at the cloud like blossoms in the trees above and around you. You are very welcome to bring your own blankets with you to make the most of the spectacle (however we will have a limited number available to hire when you visit). We will also have beautiful displays of spring flowers, including our stunning heritage daffodils for you to enjoy.
Our Head Gardener, David Logan, will also be offering a tour of the blossoms at 1pm daily (limited availability) to talk you through the varieties of Cherry Blossom that we have here at Doddington.

On the Sundays our Education Team will also be offering children the opportunity to make some beautiful (but not too elaborate...) origami to take home with them.

To round off your day why not pop into one of our two Cafes and enjoy a delicious cup of cherry tea and cherry scone, before exploring our Farm Shop, Country Clothing store, India Jane interiors store, Giant Store Lincoln Bike Shop and award-winning Restaurant.

Festival fringe events can be found on our website
