Long Description:
The official website describes the location:

'A 17th-century grandstand and Cotswold country estate

Lodge Park

John 'Crump' Dutton built this 17th-century grandstand, fuelled by his passion for deer coursing, gambling, banqueting and entertaining.

Lodge Park became the National Trust's first restoration project in 1998 and relied on archaeological evidence to return the building to its former glory. It's situated approximately two and a half miles from the village of Sherborne and the wider Sherborne estate, the other side of the A40.

Lodge Park is open March to November, Fridays to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays (occasionally closed for private functions- please check our detailed opening times).

Sherborne Park Estate

Sherborne is a working estate and has an abundance of wildlife, from fallow and roe deer to badgers and foxes.

Ewe Pen Barn is the starting point for Lodge Park's three main walking routes: Short Woodland Stroll; Family Fun Walk and Historic Farmland Hike. Don't miss the sculpture trail around the pleasure grounds.

Make sure to leave some time to visit the 18th-century water meadows (home to otters, water voles and dragonflies) - park at Northfield Barn car park.

The estate is open year round, dawn to dusk.'
