Overview

Since 2006 Doddington has been our much-loved family home. We have continued Claire’s parents work in devoting ourselves to the upkeep, repair and progression of the Doddington Estate including; the development of the Farm Shop, Bike Shop, Cafe, Restaurant, Coffee Shop, Home Store, Farrow & Ball, Country Clothing Store, Bauble Barn, Christmas Tree Sales and Weddings and Events businesses; increasing public access; organising concerts and exhibitions and the development of various accommodation across the estate. There is always something new to see and do on the estate whether that is inside the Hall, in the five acres of gardens, one of our events, or on one of the estate walks. We look forward to welcoming you to Doddington.

A excellent location for walking, eating, historical building and shopping. Lovely farm shop with butchery. Cycle routes alongside.

I have not been inside Doddington Hall but love the gardens and the farm shop is fantastic. It's our 'go to' for all our special 'goodies' at Christmas but is full of tasty things all year round. Love it!
