We visit Doddington Hall fairly regularly because it offers a personal twist to the recent Downton Abbey phenomenon of the stately home: the house has never been sold since Elizabethan times and the personal attention to detail of the artistic present owner combines this with a hands on approach. We have seen them around the place, getting stuck in with... More

We go to Doddington Hall every few months for lunch and always have a very enjoyable meal. Our visit today was for Christmas lunch in the restaurant which was beautiful. Lovely atmosphere, very pleasant staff and lots to do after we had finished. There is a bauble barn and new this year a toy shop. Well worth a visit at... More

visited Doddington Hall to see the Christmas decorations. They were beautiful and the room with the Christmas trees reminded me of Narnia. The bauble barn was lovely with lots of different Christmas decorations. Always worth a visit. We have visited here for vintage fair and wedding dresses through the years . Always full of imagination.

We had exhausted the National Trust Houses nearby for our Christmas outing so decided to visit. The House is lovely and beautifully decorated for Christmas, it really started our Christmas off perfectly. The staff were all friendly and happy to talk and tell us about the history. I particularly enjoyed the woodland walk inside the house! It did get busy... More

Having lived near Doddington Hall as a child, it is amazing that we never went there until about 2 years ago. We have been there so many times now that I have lost count. It is a great place to go for a snack, a meal, or for the food shop which is brilliant and really good prices. It is... More

I had never been before and was very surprised at the quality of everything, garden, restaurant, everything very well kept and clean. Also very good value at £7 entrance for the... More

If you have chance to visit before Christmas, you are in for a treat. The Carol themed room dressings add tremendously to the character and feel of the Hall. There was also a choir singing the carols depicted which could be heard all over the house. The 12 days of Christmas Quiz is not just for Children!

Visited today and was thrilled with the Christmas decorations in the House. It has been decorated with style and sophistication. None of the typical, ordinary tinsel and bauble decor here - well thought out artistic decoration here. Each room has been decorated in the the theme of a carol and really is something special. The guides were especially pleasant and... More
