The AreaMildenhall

The North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompasses much of the countryside around Mildenhall and the market town of Marlborough just over a mile away, both sitting on the River Kennet. Mildenhall is everyone’s idyllic idea of an English village with its pretty houses and church and the pub/restaurant in the centre offering a relaxing place to enjoy your surroundings. For lovers of the outdoors, there are the river paths and the ancient Savernake Forest as well as the wide and rolling space of the Marlborough Downs. There are many walks in the area as well as cycle rides including the Marlborough to Swindon cycleway and the National Cycle Route 482 based on an old railway track which links the Ridgeway to Marlborough. Marlborough is a pretty and vibrant market town set amongst idyllic Wiltshire countryside, and is a lovely place to whittle away a few hours with the many individual shops, boutiques and places to eat in one of Britain’s widest streets. The area is renowned for having a number of fantastic schools, both private and state, all being within easy driving distance.

The Lodge, MildenhallAbout this home

This beautiful Lodge was built in 1824 by Robert Abraham as a Protestant Free School, and has since been converted and beautifully and tastefully refurbished.  The unusual design of a central octagon with 4 wings forming a Latin cross, makes this a charming and unique home.  The light pours into this house with its stunning windows and high ceilings and is surrounded by its outstanding and landscape designed gardens.

The Lodge is located in the heart of the popular and idyllic village of Mildenhall, nestled in Wiltshire’s rolling countryside in the Kennet Valley. The village is full to the brim with picture postcard homes and stunning views of the River Kennet, and is within walking distance of the thriving market town of Marlborough.


  • Step into the grandeur of this historic Lodge, where every detail has been thoughtfully preserved and meticulously maintained. The striking octagon centre and the four symmetrically aligned wings creates a magnificent space, showcasing a timeless blend of history and artistry.
  • All 4 wings have grand and exceptional features, mainly high ceilings and windows of architectural beauty. The impressive drawing room has magnificent features as does the siting room, both with superb fireplaces.  The kitchen/breakfast room makes for another fabulous space facing east where the morning sun pours in. In the 4th wing is a peaceful and splendid principal bedroom with dressing room and adjoining shower room.
  • The central octagon is arranged over 3 floors accessed by a spiral staircase in the tower, leading to 3 comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, all with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside.
  • Also accessed by the spiral staircase within the octagon is the basement level where there is a spacious laundry area, storage room and a wine cellar.
  • The gardens are exquisite – a great deal of thought, time and effort has created different compartments including rose gardens, parterre gardens, sheltered terraces and an area of lush orchard and shrubbery.
  • Mildenhall is a very popular village on the River Kennet, and the area is well renowned for its outstanding countryside, but also some of the most fantastic pubs and restaurants.
