Although The Lodge’s grounds include seven acres of fruit orchards, more immediately, the house is surrounded by an acre-sized traditional English country garden. A traditional country garden that alongside beautifully manicured lawns and lovingly tended flowerbeds, boasts a tennis court, trampoline and a separate fenced-off area with a keyhole shaped swimming pool.

Enclosed by the walls of The Lodge, the sheltered Zen garden, complete with bubbling hot tub, provides a relaxing spot to chill out in whatever the time of year.

So all in all it’s just as perfect for nature lovers who are keen to spot the wildlife the orchards have to offer – pheasants, squirrels and rabbits – as it is summer parties or family fun. What’s more with a wealth of seating and parasols, if you’re more of a watcher than a doer, you can do so in complete comfort.
