A visit to Doddington offers a unique insight into family life through the ages and the challenges of looking after such an estate in the 21st century. An example of a fine late Elizabethan Mansion, it is still a lived-in and much loved family home. Over 400 years of unbroken family occupation has resulted in fascinating collections of furniture, weaponry, paintings, ceramics, textiles, household objects, porcelain and a wealth of amusing stories all to be found in and around Doddington Hall. For many, the Gardens at Doddington are just as spectacular as the Hall itself. Beyond the West Gardens begin the lovingly restored Wild Gardens. Just a stone’s throw from the Hall, the Kitchen Garden now provides an abundance of fruit and vegetables, which take centre stage on the Café and Restaurant menus and are regularly for sale in our Farm Shop.
