May lodge

May Lodge is a replacement Gate Lodge for Woodbank Grade II Listed Residence and is fully "Covid-ready". It was built in 1983 and has been totally refurbished. Furnished in a contemporary style with light oak furniture in living areas, May Lodge has 3 bedrooms which can comfortably sleep 6. Visitors to May Lodge enjoy exclusive use of a newly-designed private ‘pebble’ garden (across a private driveway) which has a fish pond, very pretty gazebo and a large dining table made of slate and stone. Very suitable for al fresco dining. Please take care as the nature of this garden is to have uneven ground. There is safe off-road car parking for three cars at the side of the house.
