About Stourton Estates and Stourton Woods

Stourton Estates and our venue Stourton Woods are family run businesses situated north of Horncastle on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.  We have farmed the land on the estate since the 1920’s and whilst we are mainly an arable farm, livestock is increasingly playing an important role here with herds of Red Deer (introduced in 2012) now happily living in the parks.  We take great care of the environment that we operate within, encouraging wildlife and we are very proud of the diverse range of species that live on the estate.

Over the last 20 years we have diversified our business and created a venue called Stourton Woods.  This has taken place whilst we have carefully restored much of the old Stourton Estate, (previously home to the Livesey family) by responsibly managing the woodland, lakes, and creating rides and safe access for visitors to the venue Stourton Woods.Kiln dried logs at Stourton Estates
