    Doddington Place is surrounded by wooded countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The lovely landscaped gardens are set in the grounds of an imposing Victorian mansion and cover ten acres. There is a notable woodland garden which includes many different varieties of rhododendron and azalea; also a large Edwardian rock garden with pools undergoing renovation; a formal sunk garden, originally designed by Markham Nesfield, with borders in a new scheme designed by Kirsty KnightBruce of herbaceous perennials and annuals; and a brick and flint gothic folly built c.1998. Extensive lawns and avenues are framed by impressive clipped yew hedges and many fine trees with far reaching rural views.
