Poachers Hideaway at Flintwood Farm lies nestled in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds in a designated “area of outstanding natural beauty”. The farm boasts 5 miles of private interwoven footpaths meandering around the lakes and woodlands, skirting the fields, up hill and down dale and the landscape and views are spectacular. From the top of Park Hill you can see down the Vale of Scamblesby past Goulsby to Belmont and Stenigot or down the Vale of Tetford across the Wash to Hunstanton in Norfolk. Looking out over Belchford village you can see Tattershall Castle and the fens.

 

The Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival, an annual event that takes place in May, is a series of guided ” fun walks for all” around the Wolds providing an opportunity to explore the beauty of the Wolds and surrounding area. One of the walks is based at Flintwood Farm and led by Andrew who owns the land. He has been walking in the Wolds for over 30 years and has extensive knowledge of the farming and history of the area.
The network of walks in Tennyson’s Valley offers unsurpassed views of some of the most beautiful and unspoilt scenery in the East Midlands and the chance to explore local villages, delightful churches, traditional pubs, wildlife and woodlands

Pubic footpaths and bridleways also pass through the farm, most famously The Viking Way…read more
