What a waste of time, if u want to see a house, rooms and get a feel for a old property with history then this is not a place for you if u want to see 6 rooms and a rubbish and badly put together modern art gallery that this is the place for you. This has to be the worst place the NT have got im glad im a member as if i had had to pay id of been demanding my money back. My mum and i were there the grand total of 3/4 of an hour and that was with a quick cup of tea too. You cant take pictures and theres no guide book to buy ... mind you they wouldnt have anything much to put in it. I adore history, facts, information and especially NT houses i am working my way round the country visiting them all and i have done quite a few but this place is by far the worst house that ive ever visited. If i need a postive the grounds are very nice and the cup of tea was fine

The house is interesting, the galleries are unusual and the gardens are superb. Tea rooms were nice with lots of picnic benches in the orchard. Just a shame the ferry doesn't operate any more as it would have been nice to arrive by steam train.
We had a lovely day and would definitely recommend it.

I visited Dudmaston today with my son. We enjoyed the day on the whole. The house is quite interesting and there are beautiful views over the gardens from the library. In fact the most enjoyable part of the day was our walk around the gardens - they are beautiful. The staff were nice and friendly. However we were very disappointed with the cafe. There was a very limited choice of food and it was very difficult to see what was on offer as there was no menu. We ended up just having a cheese sandwich which was not very nice as the bread was hard. We felt that the cafe let the place down.

There is something for nearly everyone in the garden, in the Hall, the cafe, and adjacent walks. Those with wheelchairs or buggies need to be careful as there are some very steep slopes leading down to the Big Pool. Although the history of the Hall is not as impressive as some, it does hold an "eclectic collection" of art and memorabilia in the rooms and galleries. The strap line "where Ancient meets Modern" is realised in the various exhibitions, with seating available in most areas for those needing to meditate on artwork or just in need of a rest. The guides, as usual, are helpful and full of enthusiasm for their subject. In nice weather it would be easy to spend a full day in the house, on the walks, and in the cafe.
