With its luxury accommodation, its reserves of ageing port and wines in the wine cellar, its rare books and sumptuous cuisine, the Lodge retains the warm, welcoming atmosphere of a country house. The estate boasts a plethora of outdoor activities for our guests; salmon fishing on a private stretch of the Sheen River, daily horse riding available locally, hill walking trails and cycling tours and much more…....
