An old family home with a modern twist...
Enchanted wooded parkland, sweeping gardens and a house with a surprise, Dudmaston is something unexpected in the Shropshire countryside. A much loved home for over 875 years you will find the family rooms scattered with photos and perhaps an odd pair of shoes or two peeping out from under a table. The unexpected galleries create a total contrast, with their formal, crisp lines. They were designed by the last owner, Rachel, Lady Labouchere, to house her and her husband’s differing modern and traditional collections of art for the visitor to peruse.
The gardens provide amazing vistas and tranquillity while the orchard is the perfect place to relax and for the children to let off steam. For more stunning views and getting up close to nature head to Big Pool and Dingle woods, while the wider estate provides extensive walking routes for year round enjoyment.
Dudmaston Hall is the family home of Mr and Mrs Mark Hamilton-Russell.

Autumn and Winter Weekends
A walk in the woods is just the thing for autumnal weekends and as the leaves fall, Dudmaston takes on a different pace preparing for winter. The park, tearoom and shop open Saturdays and Sundays 11.30am – 4pm, until 14 December. Children can pick up a free spotter trail to enjoy around the park; how many geese can they count on Big Pool, or squirrels gathering their winter store of food? The shop has a full range of cards and gifts for Christmas and the tea room will have the fire lit for you to warm up with a freshly made bowl of hearty soup or maybe a sweet treat from our cake selection.
