Doddington Place is surrounded by wooded countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the North Downs.
The lovely landscaped gardens, recognised of being of historical importance by Historic England, are set in the grounds of an imposing Victorian mansion and cover ten acres.
There is a notable woodland garden – spectacular in May and June – which includes many different varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas; also a large Edwardian rock garden with pools; a formal sunk garden with herbaceous borders, and a flint and brick folly.
Extensive lawns and avenues are framed by impressive clipped yew hedges and many fine trees.
