5/203 South Lodge to Tehidy Park

Entrance lodge to Tehidy Park; now house. Probably 1790's, for Francis Basset
Lord de Dunstanville (said to be dated 1791 internally); with C20 addition.
Granite ashlar, thatched roof. Octagonal front cell with short rear wing, and
prominent porch (large addition to left side not of special interest). One and l½
storeys, in Picturesque style. Facing the drive is a very prominent 1½-storey
gabled porch like a porte-cochere, with 4-centred arches carried on square
pillars which have moulded caps, and a wider gable carried on moulded corbels
and containing a casement window of 2 arched lights with lozenge-and-diamond
leaded glazing and a hoodmould, and a steeply-pitched roof with prominent
boarded verges under deep thatch. The low side walls have similar windows with
slightly different leaded glazing, and the thatched roof forms a deep canopy
carried round, with a chimney on the ridge and another at the rear gable. Rear
and interior not inspected. (Addition to left is in matching style and materials.)
Matches Eastern Lodge, Cot Road, in form and style (q.v.); both served Tehidy
House, home of the Basset family (q.v.).
