Parking, Outbuildings, Barns & Land - North Lodge Farm is accessed via a long shared tarmac driveway with North Lodge Farm being on the right with a gated entry leading to a large yard suitable for plenty of vehicles including ample room for a turning circle for horse boxes. Directly in front of the parking areas is a large tall Dutch barn, which the current owners utilise for hay storage. Adjoining this is a smaller covered barn suitable for further storage and vehicles. The gardens surround the house, there is gated access and a pedestrian walkway leading to the rear hall with lavender and rosemary borders, either side of the attractive pathway and arched canopy with railway sleeper borders and well trained plants. To the front there is a further pedestrian access and gate that leads to the front entrance door whilst the gardens are laid mainly to lawn. There is a five bar gate that leads to the field to the West and as you walk round there is an LPG tank which currently just serves the Aga and range, a recently built pizza oven, children’s play area and outside kennel. There is a variety of mature trees to the Southern boundary providing a perfect windbreak and privacy screen. Behind the Dutch barn is a further brick built barn, which has a large timber sliding door. The floor plan gives some indication of its size but it could easily be utilised as stabling for any equestrian use or indeed, subject to normal planning permission, ancillary accommodation to the main house. It has windows to the rear, a further large rear door provides access to the field and also a window to the front.

The field nearest to the house slopes gently down to the tree lined boundary and has outstanding far reaching views over neighbouring countryside; this is the smaller of the two and faces the West, adjoining this is the larger field which faces the Northerly direction and houses an attractive summer house, woodland walk and large pond. The fields, as expected, attract an abundance of bird and wildlife. There is a beautiful pond which is sheltered by a number of trees and has an amazing summer house which is a delightful retreat used by the current owners all year round. Swimming in the pond is actively encouraged and there is also a variety of fish; a perfect retreat for budding anglers. The summer house has a log burner and a two tiered deck that overhangs the pond and double glazed double doors. Behind the summer house is a very attractive wooded area with a variety of coniferous and deciduous trees; these were planted by the current owners and provides a super area for walking and for young children to play.

Location - Rugby has grown to become Warwickshire’s second largest market town, boasting a variety of designer and high street shops, restaurants and pubs. Famed for its public school, the birth of rugby football and the Frank Whittle jet engine, Rugby is also home to the green open spaces of Caldecott Park, Coombe Abbey Country Park, Brownsover Hall and Draycote Water. With a range of excellent schools, Rugby is ideally placed for a well-rounded education. Equally so for transport too, thanks to its convenient motorway links and speedy rail services to Birmingham, Leicester and London Euston in around 50 minutes.

Positioned in the heart of England the county is famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare. There are no cities in Warwickshire since both Coventry and Birmingham were incorporated into the West Midlands County in 1974 and are now metropolitan authorities in themselves. Warwickshire hosts several key towns including Leamington Spa Warwick, Stratford upon Avon, Kenilworth, Henley In Arden and Rugby to name a few. The northern tip of the county is only three miles from the Derbyshire border. An average-sized English county covering an area of almost 2,000 km2, it runs some 60 miles north to south. Equivalently it extends as far north as Shrewsbury in Shropshire and as far south as Banbury in north Oxfordshire.
