A stream meanders along the bottom of the paddock as too does one of the many public footpaths in the area (part of The Arden Way). The footpath winds through an idyllic valley to the next village where you can eat or drink at the famous village pub – The Green Dragon. Or, you can take a stroll across the paddock and over the bridge over the stream to The Throckmorton Arms, a pub/restaurant just 200 yds up the road from The Lodge.
