The Victorian Lodge (1876) is a charming and quintessentially English country cottage on a private estate once owned by King Henry 8th. It sits at the entrance of a long driveway leading to the Little Dower House (www.littledowerhouse.com) the enchanting home where Susie and Hamish the owners of the Lodge live.
The Victorian Lodge with it's lovely garden and stunning views provides the perfect setting for a small intimate Wedding, whilst the romantic and enchanting gardens at Little Dower House also provide an ideal venue for larger weddings.
For larger families wishing to stay at the Lodge, there is also the opportunity to rent the Little Hideaway at Little Dower House, (www.littlehideaway.co.uk), a beautifully and newly finished two storey studio which sleeps two to four adults. The Little Hideaway is a secluded and romantic retreat which makes for the perfect getaway.
The area is great for couples, families, country lovers, townies, food lovers, gardeners, riders, polo players, golfers and walkers too.
The Cottage is set on a quiet country road, directly opposite the magnificent Windsor Great Park, with spectacular views of Windsor Castle.
It's a super warm, super cosy cottage, with a lovely garden in a unique location, on a quiet and private estate of four houses. With private parking, polo ponies in the field opposite the Lodge, great walks, great pubs, Windsor, Thorpe Park and LEGOLAND just nearby, and central London only 35 minutes away by train and Heathrow airport 20 minutes away by car.
The Cottage is only 5 minutes away from the Bishops Gate entrance into the Great Park, where you can walk forever, bike ride, horse ride, or just sit by one of the enormous lakes and lap up some of the stunning views. Take a walk in the famous Valley or Savill Gardens, watch a few chukkas being played at Guards Polo ground, or take a ride on one of our own retired polo ponies instead, by prior arrangement.
There is a traditional English pub only 5 minutes away, The Fox and Hounds in Englefield Green , situated by the Bishops Gate entrance into the Great Park , serving simply wonderful light bites, great pub food and smart restaurant food. It's the perfect place, and great for lunch, dinner, a snack or a BBQ, and a well earned rest after a walk in the Park.
The Lodge has everything you should need, with Sky+ satellite television, high speed Wi-Fi internet, DVD, and a roaring log fire in the sitting room. A Queen size Master bedroom has an adjoining bathroom, a second bedroom with new twin beds that can join to make a King size bed, a study / third bedroom with a small double sofa bed, and two travel cots and two fold out single beds if also needed. The second bathroom has a bath and power shower, and the utility room has a washing machine, dishwasher. microwave and tumble dryer.
We live up the long driveway, so we're only 2 minutes away and here to help in any way at any time, whilst you are there or away, but we're always very respectful of your privacy.
