I have been sitting in the cafe having a luke warm coffee and watched the girls,behind the counter brushing their hair checking their reflections in the mirrored back of the servery. I am reliably informed that evenings here are fantastic though. Retail offers... More

I just spent the weekend in one of the holiday cottages on the estate. The accommodation was fantastic, beautifully decorated, spotless and very comfortable. The staff were wonderful, Hannah who looks after the accommodation went out of her way to help us, arranging an upgrade to a different location to ensure our baby wasn't disturbed by noise from the Halloween...

It's easy to while away a couple of hours pleasantly at Doddington. The farm shop has lots of quality food items including freshly baked bread and cakes, locally sourced meats, fruit, and vegetables from the kitchen garden. You can grab a good coffee in the cafe by the bike shop, or you can linger over something more substantial in the... More
