Doddington Place Gardens

Doddington Place Garden, near Sittingbourne

With a tea room serving delicious homemade cakes, scones and lunches, and special events throughout the year, Doddington Place Gardens is well worth a visit.

The Gardens at Doddington Place were originally designed by Markham Nesfield, father of the famous designer William Nesfield, and consist of 10 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens - a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day.
With a notable woodland garden which is spectacular in May and June, bursting with colour from azaleas and rhododendrons, an Edwardian rock garden and sunken garden, there is plenty to see and enjoy. The rock garden has been completely restored and retains its original Edwardian framework
Extensive lawns and avenues are framed by impressive clipped yew hedges and fine trees add interest. The yews were planted by Maude Jeffreys (nee Oldfield) before the First World War.  They are now one of the most memorable features of the gardens and have evolved into giant mounds like a range of cumulus clouds.
The garden has featured in numerous magazine and newspaper articles and twice on TV in Country Ways.
