Winter at Lodge Park and Sherborne Estate

Lodge Park, Gloucestershire

Lodge Park may now be closed for the winter, but Sherborne Park Estate is open every day for walks through wintry woodland and watermeadows.

Lodge Park has now closed for the winter while staff and volunteers get ready for next season. Every winter the grandstand and the collection are cleaned, and conservation work takes place. 

Lodge Park will reopen for pre-booked guided tours for the following weekends in 2022:

  • 9-10 April
  • 7-8 May
  • 4-5 June
  • 2-3 July
  • 6-7 August
  • 3-4 September

Tickets will be available to book from the week before each open weekend.

Sherborne Park Estate is open every day for walks through the Cotwold countryside including woodland, parkland and water meadows. Cold and frosty days result in beautiful views on the Estate, especially the views over the brook.  

For parking at Ewe Pen Barn use GLD4 3DT, or Water Meadows Car Park use GL54 3DL.
