Situated in the rolling Northamptonshire countryside, Dodford Manor is a stunning ancient location originally owned by William the conqueror’s half brother Robert the Count of Mortain.
Coming down the private driveway you make your way through the ancient hunting and deer park dated from 1222, prior to moving to a crusading knight’s manor which is now a Georgian Grade II listed family home with a group of farm barns, which include a 1680s Threshing stone barn and a 1890s Dairy Barn.
The barns have now each been converted to a luxurious and comfortable setting providing the perfect wedding venue for a truly unique experience.
The Dairy barn was functioning up to the early 1980s as a hand milking dairy. And to show you the origin of the barn we have securely kept the hay manager mounted on the clay and stone wall as a reminder of the incredible history of this barn.
Connected to the Dairy Barn you’ll step into the Oak Barn. This historically Manor Barn was a 1950s-concrete portal framed, asbestos roofed structure the planners were initially keen to preserve! However, permission was eventually given for an oak structure in the exact mass of the former. The oak superstructure took over 12 months of designs to get perfect!
In the background of the Manor views you’ll find St Mary’s Church, dating back to 12 C. which is just a gorgeous back drop for some beautiful pictures.
