Enjoy the change in season and autumn colour in our Gardens. Admire the Colchicum autumnale, commonly known as autumn crocus, meadow saffron or naked ladies.


For many, the Gardens at Doddington are just as spectacular as the Hall itself. Remaining faithful to the original Elizabethan layout, mellow walls provide the framework for the formal East Front and West Gardens. Beyond the West Gardens begin the lovingly restored Wild Gardens. Over the generations, most recently by Antony and Victoria Jarvis and Claire and James Birch, the gardens at Doddington have been restored, cared for, nurtured and developed to their fullest potential. Find out more about the Gardens.
