Well kept gardens and amazing hedgerows for those that truly appreciate attention to detail in a large garden and vast estate. The cafe is also worth a visit. And you may be lucky enough to see some birds of prey.

We had a relaxing day out . The gardens were pretty to walk around. The coffee was great along with the home made chocolate cake! But best of all were the birds of prey.

Doddington Place Gardens is well worth a visit, even if there is no special event taking place. On our recent visit there was an event on but the surroundings far exceeded the event. We had a mid-day meal which was well-presented, tasty and good value...More

We spent a very pleasant afternoon here as a family. The gardens are beautiful, the parking is ample and easy. There is plenty of room to roam around and is an ideal family venue. We were a little disappointed in the "Food and craft fair"...More
