We have been here a number of times as the gardens are worth seeing in different seasons. The walled kitchen garden is particularly striking and of interest to anyone who grows their own. Produce is sold in the farm shop and the café which is also well worth a visit.

An amazing array of sculptures set in wonderful surroundings. The garden centre located next door is also a great place to buy local produce.

Attended a family wedding here - what a lovely place. Food very good, staff helpful and attentive. Photos were taken in front of the hall ( it wasn't open so couldn't go in )

My husband and I visited Doddington as we acquired a 2 for 1 voucher. However, when we tried to use the voucher, we were informed that we could not use it during the couple of weeks the 'sculpture garden' was on. Whilst it did state on the back that it could not be used to enter the sculpture garden, it... More

We are very sorry that you found our 2 for 1 offer confusing. There is always limited space on these vouchers, but we did clearly state that it did not include dates when we had special events including our sculpture exhibition in August. We were careful not to use the phrase 'sculpture garden' anywhere as that would have implied that... More

Went to Doddington hall today with the boyfriend as he's studying fine art and would like to work with stone. It was amazing to see all the diffrent designs, sculpture and materials! Gave him some really good ideas! Must admit my hands started to hurt after he made me take a picture of everything! :)

We came out for Sunday lunch. The food was very nice and it was a pleasure to look round the farm shop and purchase some locak produce.

My first visit to Doddington Hall and gardens was a wonderful experience. Although the Hall was closed that day (worth ringing ahead) the stunning gardens, nature walk and sculptures were incredible, inspiring and so enjoyable. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially in the cafe. My disabled friend had no problems getting around in his wheelchair which was a great bonus.... More

Had a cream tea in the cafe which was delicious. Staff were very well organised. The Farm shop was very good with lots of different things to tempt you. The gardens were a delight to visit with all the sculptures dotted throughout. An amazing place to see.

Spent an amazing four hours in the gardens this afternoon. Don't miss it!! Our first time of visiting and want to go back again when the house is open. Absolutely loved the sculptures - apparently about 400 - kept finding them around every corner. Set out brilliantly. Would have loved more time to explore. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.
