Sunken Garden - Doddington Place
Sunken Garden - Doddington Place
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 English Heritage, are set in the grounds of an imposing Victorian mansion and cover ten acres. The gardens have been open in aid of the National Gardens Scheme for more than fifty years.

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 (currently undergoing extensive renovation); 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. LinkExternal link
