Life at Doddington Court

At Doddington Court, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local newsagent can deliver your newspaper. After breakfast in your apartment or the restaurant, you might choose to meet friends in our communal lounge, or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals, or you may want to prepare lunch for yourself, or for friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, you can pop into the village, which is less than 10 minutes away, for a spot of shopping. If you want to go further afield, you could visit the nearby villages of Chatteris, March or Benwick. Alternatively, you could spend the day in the historic city of Cambridge.

In the afternoon, you might join us in the lounge for one of our regular social events, take part in a game of bingo, do some gardening or browse our well-stocked library room. By evening you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards or a mutual hobby.

Feeling protected, safe and supported is essential and I think Doddington Court has this covered wonderfully” – Resident's family member
