Dating back to the early 1830s Buttles lodge is a most striking Palladian style building believed to have been modelled on a temple in the grounds of Stowe House, Buckinghamshire. Built by Lady Anna Gore Langton, daughter of the 2nd Duke of Buckingham and Chandos the building was formally an exit lodge serving the drive way towards Hatch Park and today forms part of this beautiful home.

Internally, Buttles Lodge has accommodation arranged over two floors and is presented to high standard throughout. On the ground floor, there is a spacious sitting room which looks out across the gardens with an attractive fireplace forming a focal point on one wall.

Completing the accommodation is a large family bathroom, complete with panel enclosed bath, separate shower cubicle, bidet and W/C, as well as another W/C on the ground floor.
