Dudmaston Hall

Dudmaston Hall Staircase

For its ancient heritage, there’s an equal measure of modern thinking, tastes and culture which continue to shape the Hall and the wider estate today. The family rooms open from April to September.

A house of many contrasts. Dudmaston has been a ancient family home for over 875 years with a modern twist. Venture around the traditional rooms from the panelled  entrance hall to the sunlit library with stunning views over the garden and Big Pool. Relax in the cosy Oak Room and flick through the family photo album. Wander up the sunny cantilever staircase and take a peek into the guest bedrooms with their unusual 1960's wallpaper.

Dudmaston library,

As you leave the upstairs landing the focus changes from the traditional country house to the lives of last owners, Sir George and Rachel, Lady Labouchere. Follow their their diplomatic travels and discover their love of art. View the contrasting collections of  Sir George's Modern and Spanish Art in his galleries with Lady Rachel's Watercolours and Botanical illustrations.
