The Garden Pictorial

Doddington Place, Sittingbourne



Built around 1860, the  magnificent Doddington Place has been the home of the Oldfield family for a century.  With the gardens covering 10 acres, it is important to have structure that defines the garden during its winter months.  The extensive clipped yew hedges provide exactly that.  The Sunken Garden & Rock Garden in particular are uniquely transformed by the frosty winter months.                                                                     "There is something magical about the bare bones of a garden that speaks of such promise for the summer to come" - Garden owner, Amicia de Moubray
