About this property

  • The Round Lodge is understood to have been built in circa 1826 and is justifiably Grade II listed as being of architectural interest. This enchanting thatched property, a former gate house and folly is located in a glorious setting within Compton Park, land associated for generations with Compton House, a large 16th century Manor House nearby. The house, which has dressed round stone walls and stone mullioned windows and a conical thatched roof, has been extended twice since its original construction, originally in the mid 20th century and then once again in the 1990's and now provides quirky, cosy accommodation arranged over two floors. On the ground floor is a spacious reception hall, circular sitting room and well appointed kitchen opening to a dining area and on the first floor is a principal bedroom with en suite, three further bedrooms and a bathroom.

    The Round Lodge is situated off a quiet lane leading from the village. To the front of the house is parking for one car and access to the front door via a thatched veranda also covering a stone terrace with lovely views over open farmland. The majority of the gardens at the property are to the south and west and on the south west elevation there is a single storey conservatory/glass house. The gardens at The Round Lodge are a major feature having been thoughtfully planted and landscaped by the present owners and including a wide variety of shrubs and plants bordered by a stone wall and in the backdrop of the mixed woodland rising to the rear of the house. To the west of the house is a terrace leading to a lawn which extends to the bottom end of the garden where there is a summer house and deck overlooking a lake on the neighbouring property.
