South Ormsby Estates are offering Wolds, Wellies, Walking EMN-211129-093556001

South Ormsby Estate is offering Wolds, Wellies and Walking for visitors to learn about the local area, it’s history and wildlife before tasting some of the estate’s finest food and drink.

Those taking part in four scheduled walks will head off on a three-mile trek through the estate, taking in some of the sights and landmarks including South Ormsby Hall, South Ormsby’s fully-refurbished Old School and the Massingberd-Mundy Distillery, where they’ll have a special behind-the-scenes tour of the award-winning gin producer with head distiller Tristan Jørgensen and sample some of the artisan craft gins being prepared.

Once there, guests can warm up with a complementary bap filled with slow-roasted beef from the famous Massingberd-Mundy Lincoln Red Beef herd.

Tour leader, Damian Furlong, said: “At this time of year, it’s all too tempting to stay indoors, but if you’re willing to brave the cold weather and stretch your legs, it’s an unmissable opportunity to take in some spectacular scenery.

“With thousands of years of history, beautiful wildlife and, not to mention, delicious local produce, the walk will take in the best that Lincolnshire’s AONB has to offer, so don’t forget to bring a camera - and wrap up warm.”

The walks will be taking place on Saturday (December 4), costing £5 per person, or free to registered Friends of South Ormsby Estate and booking is essential.
