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.

There has been lots happening at Dudmaston; A new visual art and sound installation 'Unheard Voices' by Catherine Bertola, reminds us of the past and present workers who have and do keep this estate alive. In the Dingle the continuous tree removal is returning the area to its less densely planted original feel. This has opened up some wonderful historic views which we hope you will really enjoy.
