Gardens and grounds
The grounds at The Lodge lie predominantly to the south of the main house and gently grade down towards the Great Ouse. There are formal and informal areas of open level lawns and exquisite trees throughout. The current owners have developed the gardens with meticulous planning and they are not only stunning but are maintained to an exceptional standard. Discreetly positioned to one side is a hard tennis court. The river frontage is very beautiful and there are mown paths and designated seating areas. Beyond the gardens are pasture fields that have been grazed and are cut for hay.
