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.
• Meander through the Dingle and compare views past and present.

• Find out what’s in season in our Kitchen Garden and try it for yourself in our tea-room.
• Take a seat in the oak room and browse the family photo album
• Enjoy a travel through the Hall with the Labouchere’s on their diplomatic journey.
We are excited to announce that we have been gifted a wonderful piece of artwork by 660 Squadron Army Air Corps (AAC) of the Defence Helicopter Flying Training School, based at RAF Shawbury, created by students from Birmingham City University and entitled 'The Battle of the Somme.' Made completely from brown paper and cardboard, the artwork, originally only intended to be displayed for two weeks at the university before being re-cycled, finds its new and final home in the Old Kitchen at Dudmaston and will be on display until the Hall closes at the end of October.
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.
