Doddington Hall, with our iconic Elizabethan red brick exterior, Georgian interiors, stunning gardens and parkland, has been used as a location for many exciting projects.

An example of a fine late Elizabethan Mansion, Doddington Hall is still a lived-in and much-loved family home, alive with history and interest.

Originally built for Thomas Tailor, the registrar to the Bishop of Lincoln, Doddington’s mellow brick exterior with its walled courtyards has barely changed. However, in 1749, the Hall was inherited by John Delaval of Seaton Delaval in Northumberland and he carried out an extensive internal re-decoration, incorporating the light and elegant Georgian style still seen today.

Our impressive architecture and incredible scenery provide a fantastic setting for filming, from classic period dramas to factual documentaries and modern feature films.

Our convenient links to London, the Midlands and the North make us easy to reach and our luxury on-site accommodation and award-winning catering also make us a crew friendly site!
