Late 20th century extension to lodge. Red sandstone rubble, rendered and painted to imitate timber framing on the first floor; thatched roof. Extension is re-constituted stone, also with a thatched roof. Eccentrically Picturesque. Plan: Irregular, originally two rooms on plan with an octagonal first floor, extended at the east end. Exterior: Partly two storeys. Striking front elevation, overlooking the entrance to Mamhead House, the octagonal first floor on brackets with pendants has a thatched roof with a finial and oversails the ground floor. Large porch with a hipped thatched roof, the walls of the porch framed with a splat balustrade above panels filled with plaster, cast in basket-weave patterns on the interior, and pantiles on the exterior. Plank and cover strip front door with a Tudor arch and ornamental hinges. The main block has 2- and 3-light casement windows, 2-light windows to the octagon. Interior: Modernized. The most inventive and least altered of the Mamhead House lodges. Other details: LBS Number 85950.
