Victoria Lodge is an outstanding, handsome Edwardian property located in a spectacular waterside setting overlooking the Talla Reservoir, its surrounding hills and woodland.

Built in 1897, the property is listed Grade B and sits in over five acres of its own gardens and grounds. Currently run as a country house bed and breakfast, the property wouldn’t require any changes to return back to a private country property.

Features include the listed Gentlemen’s Cloakroom with its marble sinks and tiled walls, and wood panelled reception rooms. The kitchen is large, with space for an informal dining table, while two staircases lead up to the bedroom accommodation. In total there are six bedrooms upstairs: all are en suite and the master suite has spectacular views out to the surrounding hills and reservoir.
