I  can thoroughly recommend a trip to Stourton Estates in Baumber near Horncastle. They are  a family run business who have farmed this land since the 1920’s. It is mainly an arable farm but they now have a herd of Red Deer  living on their parkland. Throughout the year they run open days where you can go on a deer safari. Contact to find out more. We visited recently and had a marvellous time. Food is thrown down near the tractor and trailer so that the deer come up close.  Some of them were heavily pregnant and about to give birth. As we went round we got a running commentary and learned so much. There is food and drink on offer and the chance to buy venison when you return back to the arboretum. If you are feeling energetic there are some lovely walks to go on too.
