“ We welcome filming at Doddington and thanks to the fact that we organise weddings, events, run of top-of the range accommodation for wedding and holiday guests, and a well-regarded restaurant, we have a fantastic and professional team of staff who would ensure that talent and production team alike are accommodated and comfortable. ”

Claire and James Birch, Owners

Architectural History

Built in 1595, the exterior remains unchanged with exception of the Windows (diamond panes replaced by larger rectangular panes in 1720s) and three Cupolas on roof. Intact Elizabethan walls around formal Gardens and Courtyard. Access through original Elizabethan red brick Gatehouse with Dutch style Gables.

Architectural Features

Symmetrical and imposing yet romantic façade. Mellow pink and red brick with York stone lintels. Large windows. Grand entrance through Gatehouse into walled Courtyard and then into Hall. Walled Gardens and pretty Elizabethan and later brick Cottages surround the house.
Interior largely Georgian in style, but several rooms with tapestries and wooden panelling that look more Elizabethan. Large rooms on each floor, including pale yellow 97 ft Long Gallery with windows down one side and paintings down the other. Grand Georgian Staircase.
