For the best brands in country clothing make Doddington your destination
Elegant Elizabethan stately home, bountiful farm shop, glorious gardens, magical events venue as well as a first class café and restaurant for coffee or lunch with friends – Doddington Hall has plenty of appeal – but step beyond the courtyard to discover the unique shopping experience offered by Doddington Country Clothing.
Doddington Country Clothing is part of an exclusive shopping area which includes Doddington At Home Interiors and a Giant cycling store. Manager, Carol Ridler has built a collection of country inspired clothing, footwear and accessories from leading international brands for both ladies and gentlemen.
“Our collections from Schoffel, Gant, Barbour and Aigle have been chosen for both their style and technical superiority combined with durability – which a country lifestyle demands. Their elegant and stylish design makes them equally fashionable for city and urban living. These brands can take you from a shoot to a show, country walk to Wimbledon,” said Carol.
On the ground floor there is a choice of this season’s collections including Seasalt ladieswear and scarves, kimonos and dressing gowns in luxurious prints by One Hundred Stars. Here you will also find Pampeano Argentinian polo belts, Tumble and Hide wallets and bags as well as jewellery and socks.
The first floor showroom features further clothing brands led by the Schoffel collection. You will also find one of the area’s most comprehensive collections of footwear ranging from the outstanding quality of Le Chameau wellies to superb ankle boots by RM Williams. Ariat boots provide a high technical specification to beat whatever weather comes your way. Leather washable deck shoes by Chatham are available in a range of mix and match colours – perfect summer slip-ons.
Carol and her team are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the latest Schoffel Lyndon and Oakham fleece gilets in the new colours of Espresso, Mink Heather and Plum. “We stock every colour of these sought after zip fronted gilets to offer our customers a colour for every occasion,” said Carol.
Staff are happy to let you browse but help is on hand to suggest accessories, provide advice or source a special order size or style. Husbands who are not quite such willing shoppers will find comfortable seating and even four-legged friends have a water bowl or Harris Tweed coats to merit their attention.
