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.
If you came to the estate with a frame in your hand. What part of your day would you frame? The frost on the trees; or the carpets of bluebells? We have new categories for this year’s competition and for the artist within you there's the chance to get even more creative with your interpretations.
