About Lower Lodge

Parkland views of the Newark Park estate and a traditional interior with two log burners.

With its latticed arched windows and ivy-clad doorway, Lower Lodge makes for an impressive holiday stay. It was built in 1790 as part of the Newark Park estate and boasts views over the parklands. Inside it’s a traditional affair with classic furnishings, two log burners and a pretty formal dining room.

The estate sits on top of the Cotswold escarpment where views of the Ozleworth valley and the Mendip Hills unfold. You’ll find miles of walks past the main house, gardens and through the woodlands. There’s also a nature reserve just behind the cottage and the footpath for Cotswold Way is nearby.

Further afield, drive just 20 miles from the cottage and you’ll arrive in the Roman market town of Cirencester. Discover the town’s historic inns, and spend an hour or two hunting for gifts in Cirencester’s independent boutiques.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
