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.
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.
The Hall & Gardens are open on Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays, 12-4pm until 25 September 2022.
