Squirrel at Lodge Nature Reserve
The Lodge is the national headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). The RSPB administers a 100 acre plot of woodlands and sandy heath with trails and wheelchair access to hides for bird and animal observation.

The Lodge also has formal gardens, with a wide variety of trees, including sweet chestnuts, weeping birch, and fine old cedars. There is a modern terraced fishpond on the south of the house, and two small, walled gardens thick with wisteria and clematis, plus a Victorian terrace.
