Pumpkin patch in Lincoln
It’s that time of year where all pumpkins are all over Instagram. In recent years, pick your own pumpkin patches have been getting increasingly popular. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers’ photoshoots taking place at these pumpkin patches and I was dying to get to one myself. I’m spending this weekend in Lincoln, so I did a quick Google search to see if there’s a pumpkin patch in Lincoln and luckily, there is!

Pumpkin patch in Lincoln

Just five miles west of the centre of Lincoln is Doddington Hall. Doddington Hall is a privately owned late Elizabethan hall which has stunning gardens that are open to the public. From today until the 31st October (Halloween) there is a pumpkin patch open daily from 10am until 3pm or while stocks last. Pumpkins range in price depending on size and can cost as little as £2 and go up to £8 for the larger ones. It’s important to note that they only take cash at the pumpkin patch. There is, however, free parking available for Doddington Hall.

When we arrived today (20th October) at around 12:30pm, the car park was pretty busy however we were able to get a space. As you can see, there were still a lot of pumpkins available today, but with the amount of people that were visiting I don’t think they will last long. If you’re looking to pick up a pumpkin, it’s probably best to go within the next few days to avoid disappointment.

As well as having the only PYO pumpkin patch in Lincoln and the beautiful gardens, there are a lot of things to keep you busy around Doddington Hall. If you’re looking for drink or a bite to eat, there’s a cafe and a coffee shop on site. If you want to do a spot of shopping then they have a brilliant farm shop which is open daily from 9am until 5pm (10am on Sundays), a home store, a country clothing store, a bike shop and a Farrow & Ball. There’s more than enough to keep you entertained for a good few hours.

If you’re visiting from outside of the area then you can also stay in one of their historic holiday cottages. There’s a total of 22 double or twin rooms available across the estate and one of the cottages is even dog friendly, so there’s no need to leave your best friend at home!

I really enjoyed my visit to Doddington Hall today. Although I only visited the pumpkin patch and the farm shop, I know that I will definitely be back to explore the rest of the estate at some point. I couldn’t buy as much as I wanted from the farm shop this time around, but I will be stocking up on Christmas presents next time.

    I’ve never been pumpkin picking but I’d love to go as I’ve also never carved a pumpkin before so I really want to do that x

    So many tiny pumpkins in that field. They’re adorable and I want one! Hopefully I can make it out to a pumpkin patch soon.

    Could you have chosen a better outfit or hair colour? I don’t think so. The weather was very photogenic as well. I love pumpkin patches and am jealous of your day out.
