The Lodge house is a Grade II listed building. It was constructed in the mid 19th century to serve a newly made entrance and driveway through Pope's Meadow to the manor house.
Originally built as a two-room building with cellars fronting the Old Totnes Road, it was extended to the rear to create a T-shaped plan before 1890. It was then extended again to the south between 1890 and 1904. It is currently as triple ridge lodge house built over a basement and constructed from course limestone with a slate roof.
At the time of the survey, the lodge had recently undergone renovation and repair work, resulting in the loss of some original features including the blocking of several fireplaces and the removal of a cast iron hand pump and fire surround.
For a detailed description of each room, see full report.
