A large picturesque garden surrounds Upper Lodge, with water features and abundant bird life. Ample off road parking is available. Transport can also be made available subject to prior arrangement with the owners.

A Brief History: Upper Lodge Farm House shares the History of Padworth House (Padworth College) which it served, and goes back to the time of the English Civil War. In fact, one of the `skirmishes` of the Battle of Newbury took place in the road that divides the track leading to Padworth House (approximately 350 metres away).

A short distance away is the Kennet & Avon Canal and the River Kennet. Both these waterways offer beautiful nature walks along their banks. Narrow Boat hiring facilities are available at nearby Aldermaston Wharf.

Adjoining Upper Lodge Farm House is a small farm with stunning views overlooking the valley to the Hamlets of Chapel Row, Beenham, Bradfield and Bucklebury. The farm supports a small heard of mixed rare breed cattle, a small flock of Hampshire Sheep, also miniature pigs and goats.

How to Find Us - By Road: Upper Lodge is set in a beautiful rural countryside location approximately 15 minutes drive from Reading town centre, also close to Thatcham, Newbury and Basingstoke town centres.

Upper Lodge Farm is located on Rectory Road mid way between the crossroads at Padworth and the T-junction with Reading Rd.

"I just wanted to tell you how absolutely marvelous your lodge was for us - it was everything and more I was expecting - you had a lot of little touches that made it feel ever the more special for us. The countryside was beautiful! We would easily stay at the lodge again if and when we return to this area. Thanks again" - Cindy O
