GV II

Lodge. Early-mid C19. Local stone rubble with red sandstone quoins and Bathstone detail; gabled slate roof. PLAN: It is terraced into the hillslope and the sunken drive to Cockington Court (qv) passes through the middle whilst a lane is carried over the drive behind the lodge. Lodge has basically a 1-room plan either side of the drive. These break forward slightly as crosswings in front of the main block which links the wings over the drive carriage entrance. There are projecting gable-end stacks and a small projecting lateral stack to left of the carriage entrance. EXTERIOR: Tudor Gothic style. 2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical front. Gabled projections each side of carriageway with kneelers and coping contain Tudor-style stone-mullioned window with iron glazing bars and saddlebars in front of diamond panes of leaded glass. Similar window in gabled half dormer which is corbelled out over the carriageway. Weathered buttress to right of carriageway and stack to left. Carriageway has round-headed arch with projecting keystone. Timber gates with good ferramenta. Inside the carriageway, the right wall includes a slit window in front of the gates and round-headed doorway containing original door to rear (similar doorway in left projecting front bay inner reveal). Left wall of carriageway includes a small niche. Main roof is lean-to against wall of raised lane (qv). Right-end stack contains round-headed niche. INTERIOR not inspected. Lower Lodge is one of a group of exceptionally attractive buidlings associated with Cockington Court (qv), its landscaped grounds, and the adjacent unspoilt village.
