Discover the fascinating story of Rachel, Lady Labouchere in the Hall

One Lady's Legacy and Love

With over 850 years of family history and a host of different characters, the property had a decision to make. What you see today is the result of 12 months’ hard work to bring the story of Rachel, Lady Labouchere to life. Welcome to ‘Modern Dudmaston’.

Sustainability is high on our agenda at Dudmaston and our woodlands are managed by our ranger team.

When a tree has to be removed every part of it is used. Whether for firewood, furniture or chip to run our biomass boilers, nothing goes to waste and with our extensive replanting scheme Dudmaston will have woods for many years to come.

Although we are unsure about the history of our gardens this is something we are currently working to change.

A garden vision is being developed through careful reading of the archives, and other work. Lady Labouchere loved the garden and an orchid was named after her during her time in Spain, unfortunately there are no surviving specimens.
