The sculpture exhibition in the grounds of Coddington Hall was fantastic. So many and such different styles. We then had coffee and cake at the fairly new coffee shop. The main restaurant is always very good but this time we just needed coffee. Very good. We then bought some holiday food in the farm shop.

Doddington Hall is on our doorstep & my husband & I visit regularly. The farm shop is our normal port of call for a few treats. The staff are always lovely, even today when the cheese lady broke the news to us that our fave cheese is currently out of production! She suggested another similar & gave us a taste... More

I have been here several times, both summer and winter. It is a lovely place to visit and the Christmas shop is also fun.

Over 300 sculptures, flowers, birds, mammals, humans, abstracts cleverly displayed in the extensive Doddington Hall gardens and a participative dragon sculpture at the front! Lots for families and/or sculpture lovers. The Hall's topiary and gardens make a great setting and, of course, are worth seeing in their own right. Good value for money - where else would you get an... More

Doddington Hall was closed the day I visited, but no worries, the gardens were well worth the visit. I lingered for an hour admiring the grounds.

We were in two minds regarding visiting today whilst on holiday nearby. However very pleased that we did as this is an exceptionally pleasant house (and still a home!) with plenty to wander around and interest you. The staff were all pleasant & helpful. The gardens are extensive and well kept - we are not "arty" but the sculptures were... More

A really amazing place and so full of things which relate to periods across the centuries. Sadly it is very restricted on opening hours. The guide book is really good value at a £1 however the support detail information is very unwieldy e.g. lists of pictures , furniture etc. across the whole house, it would be far better to have...

Today we visited the gardens (house closed on Tuesday's) , however there was also the annual sculpture trail. Having visited before I can say with some confidence that the sculptures were A fab addition to the gardens. Some stunning items-I especially like the ones that blend in with their surroundings a little (the installed flowers etc) The gardens are large,... More

A very enjoyable morning looking at the gardens and the excellent sculpture exhibition. The Hall itself is well worth visiting. The shop has some interesting food for sale. The café is OK, and the restaurant looks OK, but we were very disappointed with the food. Fancy presentation doesn't cover up lack of cooking skills and poor ingredients. We received a... More

The grounds are really stunning, lots of gardens to explore and a really really great shop and cafe. Fresh tasty food, great service and the choice to sit inside or outside. Seasonal food is served so you get the best of their produce. Recommended a visit!
