Out & About

There are too many things to do and places to see to mention them all, so we have tried to give you a good cross section and variation. There are many beautiful walks and strolls near by, with the Grantham Canal located at the edge of Oddhouse Farm's garden and the area is extremely popular with cyclists both on the canal and the lanes round and about. Enjoy the local wildlife, with an abundance of great bird life, such as Buzzards, Woodpeckers and Willow Warblers amongst many others. You may also be lucky enough to spot one of the shy local Muntjack or Roe Deer if you're down wind and quiet enough!
