Owner description: Since 2006 Doddington has been our much-loved family home. We have continued Claire’s parents work in devoting ourselves to the upkeep, repair and progression of the Doddington Estate including; the development of the Farm Shop, Bike Shop, Cafe, Restaurant, Coffee Shop, Home Store, Farrow & Ball, Country Clothing Store, Bauble Barn, Christmas Tree Sales and Weddings and Events businesses; increasing public access; organising concerts and exhibitions and the development of various accommodation across the estate. There is always something new to see and do on the estate whether that is inside the Hall, in the five acres of gardens, one of our events, or on one of the estate walks. We look forward to welcoming you to Doddington.

Spent a nice few hours with a group of friends at this lovely house, gardens, tea room, farm shop etc. on a very cold day. Gardens very interesting and obviously beautiful in spring/summer. Enjoyed looking round the house (imaginatively decorated at present for Xmas), just spoilt for me personally by not being able to take photographs in the house (as you can in so many Nat. Trust properties and even Chatsworth) - and this would I'm afraid stop me from re-visiting. However, doubtless I will pop into the tea room and farm shop again if I am passing.

I think the tickets, especially in winter should be no more then £3.00 per person seeing as the gardens are not in bloom.

Can't even take pictures of the lovely christmas tree or decorations in the hall.

Farm shop nice and obviously very popular.

Haven't visited the house or gardens but have been to the farm shop and cafeteria several times. Farm shop has loads to offer but you need a healthy bank balance to shop here every week but as a treat it's lovely.

Food in the cafeteria is just ok, not a lot on offer and what there is, is overpriced. The area itself is a bit like a motorway cafe area as one previous reviewer has mentioned and it might better in the restaurant which sadly we haven't tried.

It's lovely at Christmas because they sell no end of fabulous trees and things to go on them but it's very busy so go early.

The hall is very beautiful and interesting and worth a visit. The gardens are delightful. The cafe and restaurant serve fabulous food and drinks and there is always a lovely ambience. The staff are excellent! The farm shop sells superb food and the new furniture shop is very chic.
