Doddington Hall Houses
Doddington Hall, Doddington
Doddington Hall is a much loved family home and has never been sold since it was built in 1595 by Robert Smythson, one of England?s foremost Elizabethan architects. The mellow brick exterior with its walled courtyards has barely changed while the interior was redecorated in Georgian times in a light and elegant style. The original walled courtyards now enclose fabulous ornamental gardens and a productive vegetable garden, whilst beyond the walls you will discover romantic wild gardens and nature walks.
Over 400 years of unbroken family occupation has resulted in fascinating collections of furniture, paintings, ceramics, textiles, porcelain, household objects along with a wealth of amusing stories. A visit to Doddington offers a unique insight into family life through the ages and the challenges of looking after such a house in the 21st Century.
