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.
