Located within the Doddington Estate, Shakespeare Cottage is a beautiful converted barn and is our most modern property on our estate. This property is renovated to a high standard and has every modern convenience whilst retaining all the character and charm of the original building.
Situated just a 4-minute walk from the Elizabethan Hall itself with private gardens overlooking the Doddington Nature walks, all the wonders of Doddington Hall are on your doorstep.
This stylish newly renovated barn provides lots of space and is perfect for large groups and is very comfortable for families. There is a very spacious, light and airy fully equipped kitchen and dining room area for all to sit where you can relax after a day of all that Doddington and the local area has to offer.
There are four rooms in total sleeping up to 8 guests, comprising of two double bedrooms, with ensuites, a ground floor bedroom with an ensuite and two charming twin bedrooms.
All cottages are provided with the Wi-Fi, an iron and ironing board, flat screen televisions, a DAB radio, tea and coffee making facilities and private parking on site.
All on site accommodation overlooks farmland and have a lovely rural feel to them. They are all self-catering with fantastic, fully equipped open kitchens and dining areas and guests have access to all rooms, and surrounding area to the accommodation. You are welcome to come and go as you please, as you will be given your own key code and can access the cottage from your check in time.
Interaction with guests
Guests will be provided with all information prior to their stay and a comprehensive folder is available in your cottage with all information you require for your stay.
A welcome package with tea, coffee, 6 eggs, 2 pints of milk, butter and a fresh loaf of bread awaits for your stay with us. However, we do also have a BBC Good Food Show Award-Winning Farm shop for you to buy all your necessities from which is open Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday – 10am – 5pm.
Alternatively, if you don’t fancy cooking during your stay, we can book you into the Café or Restaurant for a Full English Breakfast and include a reservation at night time for dinner available only on Friday and Saturday nights only.
Other things to note
Whilst you are welcome to walk through all public areas surrounding your accommodation, please do be aware that Doddington Hall is still a working estate.
For several weeks over the Christmas period, our Doddington Christmas Trees are for sale to the public in the Stable Yard situated outside the Tailor Rooms, Delaval Rooms and The Brewhouse. This is also the location for our Bauble Barn. This will therefore mean there will be a slightly higher level of noise during the day and a higher than normal influx of parking in this area of the estate during your stay.
Christmas is a lively, busy and exciting time of year at Doddington with plenty of areas to explore, including a visit to the Hall and Gardens, entry to which is included in your stay as mentioned above and we do hope this does not cause too much inconvenience.

Come and stay in one of our historic and beautifully renovated cottages. We have a total of twenty-two double or twin bedrooms in four locations. All have gardens and parking and are within a couple of minutes’ walk of the Hall and Gardens, Shops, Cafe & Restaurant.
Since 2006 Doddington has been our much-loved family home. We have continued Claire’s parents work in devoting ourselves to the upkeep, repair and progression of the Doddington Estate including; the development of the Farm Shop, Bike Shop, Café, Restaurant, Coffee Shop, Home Store, Farrow & Ball, Country Clothing Store, Bauble Barn, Christmas Tree Sales and Weddings and Events businesses; increasing public access; organising concerts and exhibitions and the development of various accommodation across the estate.
There is always something new to see and do on the estate whether that is inside the Hall, in the five acres of gardens, one of our events, or on one of the estate walks.
We look forward to welcoming you to Doddington.
Claire and James Birch
