In 1793, Colonel Henry Herbert was created the 1st Earl of Carnarvon by King George III. To celebrate, he decided to build an imposing entrance, London Lodge, to his beautiful Park at Highclere. We have now completely restored this building and have refurbished it as a charming Lodge in which to stay for two nights. (It has two wings including one double bedroom).

Grotto Lodge is a charming characterful building, designed by the Victorian architect Thomas Allom and built around 150 years ago. Allom was assistant architect to Sir Charles Barry who built Highclere Castle. It has two double bedrooms, one on each floor above the sitting room and kitchen.

We are taking bookings for Grotto Lodge in 2020 from a 4 day stay to a week. Please email for more information. Shorter stays (minimum of 2 nights) will be available closer to the time.
