  • Perfect for couples, small families, wedding guests,  and visiting artists.
  • Open throughout the year

Accommodation

Adjacent to the grand main gateway, these 19th Century castellated lodges (Grade 2 Listed) have been renovated to the latest standards whilst retaining their historic appearance.  The West Lodge is ideal for small families or couples with friends whilst the East Lodge is a perfect romantic retreat for couples. Both lodges can be taken together by larger groups.
