We visited Doddington Hall today, but unfortunately we didn't really do out homework and hadn't realised the house wouldn't be open! A real shame but the shop and gardens that were open were nice.

Great location for a wedding reception. Photos at the Hall followed by reception in the Coach House. Great food and lovely staff. Next day we collected our car and visited the beautiful and good value farm shop.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor. I am sorry that you found the Hall so disappointing.
