The lodges have ashlar stone walls, low-pitched slate roofs, pedimented, with dentil cornices and simple moulded architraves - square in plan. 2 storeys. In each lodge, each face has a round-arched window with glazing bars, flanked by smaller fixed windows, ie a rudimentary Venetian window. Inner side wall has a casement with glazing bars on each floor. Elevation to park has, on ground floor, a panelled door with semi-circular fanlight with ornamental glazing. One casement with glazing bars on first floor. The Stone Lodge has single-storey C20 extension on left (viewed from drive). The section adjoining the original building of flint and stone bonding. Beyond this - walls are plastered, with concrete slate roof. The Gatehouse has a C19 extension on right, extended in C20, with walls of brick and flint banding, partly slate-hung, and hipped tiled roof.

Internally, original lodges had one room on each floor - access to upper floors by cast iron spiral stairs. Between the lodges, a pair of square ashlar stone gatepiers, with dentil cornices and caps with ball finials. Semi-circular niches in piers - facing drive. These piers linked to the lodges by upswept ashlar stone walls. Ornamental iron gates with U-shaped top, and arrow-head tops to uprights. RCHM Monument (Dorset. Vol.III)
