This is very different from the usual formal NT house and garden. For a start it is not really a house but a venue from which sporting events were viewed. It has also been used as a house. There is not a lot to see...More

A good place to walk in beautiful countryside. The lodge itself has some interesting history to see and the there is a cafe and toilets on site. A suggested walking route takes approx 1/2 hr through the estate. Worth a visit.

A good walking day around the Sherbourne estate. Park at the Lodge Park NT car park visit the grandstand (NT £6.90) then walk to the Sherbourne estates for a good 8 - 10 walk. Eat in Sherbourne village.
