Quiet time and recreation

Cumberland Lodge is well equipped for leisure and recreation on site, with a bar, chapel, table-tennis room, pool room, tennis court and croquet lawn. On the first floor, our library has 5,000 books, and a sample of the titles we stock can be found on

Board games are available in the Bar, and we offer a dedicated leisure space in the basement, suitable for evening parties, talks and general relaxation (The Vaults). Tennis, croquet, boules or rounders equipment can be borrowed from Reception when the weather is fine. 

Free WiFi is available throughout the Lodge and there are plenty of quiet spaces for relaxation and reflection. We offer a daily selection of newspapers and magazines in the Tapestry Hall, and guests are welcome to play the grand pianos in the Drawing Room and Tapestry Hall. 

Televisions are available in the Sitting Room and Groom's House for guests to use, but our guest bedrooms are intentionally 'low-tech', to encourage dialogue and the exchange of ideas.

Exploring our surroundings

The Great Park offers wonderful opportunities for walking, jogging, cycling and wildlife spotting, in all seasons. Maps and details of suggested short walks are available from Reception, including a half-hour circular stroll to the Cow Pond (pictured above). You can also download a copy from this webpage.
