This historic property which is Grade II Listed, was built in 1857 by Sir John and Lady Elizabeth Pringle. The Pringle’s had occupied Undermount since 1851, which is the large manor house screened from the village road, beyond the lodge. However, at that time access to the main house was granted from a neighbouring property and with their close family connections to Queen Victoria they hoped she may find time to visit, therefore the Pringle’s chose to carve the access tunnel through the cliff to allow the Queen a more private entrance, although she sadly never visited.

Undermount lodge was first occupied by the head gardener of Undermount, and the stone caves in the courtyard at the rear were originally used as a wash house. In 2001, after many different owners and occupiers, the property fell into state of disrepair, and thankfully was purchased by an owner with a historic interest and an eye for detail. Refurbished throughout

over a two year period, the wonderful, detached lodge now provides two bathrooms, two bedrooms, an attractive cottage kitchen with space for dining and an adjacent utility room.

Undermount lodge may serve well as a second home or holiday let, with its low maintenance courtyard garden, or an inspirational character dwelling for individuals of a creative nature.
