The house on the Dudmaston Estate, Shropshire, in May.

Dudmaston Estate is a beautiful National Trust property situated approxmiately 3 miles outside of Bridgnorth in Shropshire.

Dudmaston Hall, an 17th manor house is still very much today a family home, but with a surprise up its sleeve as although you will find some of the rooms expected in a house of this type, it also houses an important modern art collection assembled by Sir George Labouchere during his travels as an Ambassador to Spain.

The gardens are maginifcent with beautiful lakeside vistas leading the eye across the Shropshire countryside and a walk through the Dingle is a must.
