Late 17th-century mansion surrounded by a lakeside garden and estate
Dudmaston offers something unexpected in the Shropshire countryside, a house that provides a classical setting for a collection of modern and contemporary art. The modern art galleries were assembled by diplomat Sir George Labouchere, while his wife Rachel showed off her collections of botanical drawings and watercolours.
Outside, the established gardens are a stunning backdrop to art sculptures. The Big Pool is the perfect setting for a light walk with stunning views of the house. The new play area and the Orchard are the perfect places to let the kids loose to enjoy themselves.
The wider estate offers miles of walking routes that can be enjoyed year-round from the new car parks at Hampton Loade and the Holt.
The galleries have undergone a major refurbishment and we now have an Artist in Residence, Elizabeth Rowe.
Elizabeth has selected some of her favourite objects from our collection of modern and contemporary art. See which objects she has chosen and find out more about our 3768 items on the National Trust Collections Website.
