Foxley Lodge, near Bawdeswell, was actually built in 1842 so is Victorian and offers fine sash windows, high ceilings, fireplaces, cornice work and a particularly impressive staircase which is top lit by a lantern.

But of particular note are its formal lawns and a door in one of the walls leads to a secret garden enclosed by old red brick walls.

Acquired by the current owners in 1990, Foxley Lodge has been a much loved family home.

At Foxley Lodge, there is a paddock, woodland, outbuildings, a hard tennis court and orchard. A kitchen garden is partly walled and boasts fruit and figs.
