Old Lodge is the original lodge at the entrance to the old drive to Trelissick House. It was built in around 1825 in a delightful neo-Greek style, with its miniature grand columns reflecting the giant ones on the front of the main house, both were the work of the same architect. Its private, secluded garden and sheltered position in a wooded glade make this a perfect place to relax in, with miles of woodland walks available from the doorstep and the creeks and shores of the River Fal all within easy exploring distance.
