The village and parish of Doddington are on the east side of the Milfield Plain, nearly 3 miles north of the town of Wooler, in the county of Northumberland, England. Notable buildings in Doddington include Doddington Hall and the Anglican church of St Mary and St Michael, which was built in the 18th century on the site of an original 12th-century place of worship. Wooler Golf Course is also near Doddington.

A downland walk on the National Trust’s Harting Down in West Sussex, with panoramic views over the Weald to the North Downs.

Conservation grazing is helping this grassland towards a richness and diversity of 30-40 plant per square metre - species such as Cowslips and the pyramidal and fragrant orchids. Bird’s-foot Trefoil, with its yellow flowers, is food for the caterpillars of the common Blue butterfly. Harting Down provides one of Britain's best places for native juniper - the fragrant black berries are used in gin making.

The North Downs Way National Trail is a long-distance path in southern England, opened in 1978. It runs from Farnham to Dover, past Guildford, Dorking, Merstham, Otford and Rochester, along the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Kent Downs AONB. Planning for a new Long Distance Path, as they were classified in 1949, began in Kent in 1950

Extensive grounds to walk. There was a jazz group (resident I believe) playing on the lawn outside the little tearoom where a few staff were producing vast quantities of delicious food at reasonable prices.

Extensive grounds to walk. We visited in Spring and the tulips were stunning. There is a lovely sunken garden, huge yew hedges and walks in the wood and more. Really worth a visit. Opening times are limited so check first. The afternoon was topped off by a falconry display. All in all a lovely way to spend a day - and all for £6 admission.

My wife bought me a half-day falconry experience at Doddington Place as part of my Christmas present in 2013. We stayed in Canterbury for a few days and had booked the session on one of the mornings. The place itself is absolutely stunning - brilliant gardens and lovely little cafe/tearoom. The falconry experience was a magnificent treat.
