The extensive grounds comprise formal gardens including an outdoor swimming pool, an extremely well established apple orchard providing a wide range of varieties of eating and cooking apples, paddocks ideally suited to the equestrian enthusiast and two large fields bordered by woodland.

Doddington is a picturesque Kentish village situated on the rolling North Downs countryside boasting a village pub, Church and garage. The village is the type of haven those with busy lives enjoy escaping to after a hectic week at work, with country walks from the door and a real sense of community. The property is almost equidistant to the larger villages of Charing and Lenham, each with their own main line railway services to London Victoria, with fast rail services available from Ashford International to St Pancras (37 minutes) and the much larger market towns of Sittingbourne and Faversham, all some 5 miles distant.
