Welcome to the Under Gardener’s Lodge

Welcome to The Under Gardener’s Lodge. 

The Under Gardener’s Lodge was built around 1841, though to be honest we only received the keys  at the beginning  of June 2011; I know such a long time to wait …

We were finally able to move in at the end of July 2011, after some redecoration and some initial repairs had taken place.

This blog, will I hope, show the changes we have made, and continue to make on the appearance of the Lodge and it’s changes on ‘us.’

I hope to share with you snippets of our life here; the change in the Seasons, the people we meet, and of course as in so many blogs these days, there will be talk of cooking, food, family, friends, laughter, life immeasurable.

What I hope to do is share with you the day to day ‘magic’ of living in such a special place.

About Keeper of the Keys

I'm a 50 plus [ how time flies] multifaceted, oxymoron, who can never really make her mind up. A Witch, a Follow of the Goddess, a Medium, ( I'll talk to anyone dead or alive), a 'wanna be' Writer, a disorganised Blogger, Cake Baker, Jam Maker, Trainee Patchwork-er and Keeper of the Keys for The Under Gardener's Lodge. Mother Grandmother and Wife. I'm fascinated and excited by many things, and therefore could be called eclectic or even eccentric, though some have not been that polite. I live in this Beautiful Magical Lodge with my husband Lou, our rather large dog, Shea and a few other previous residents, who come and go. And like many women of a certain age - I like purple [ and some how pink!] rather a lot!

    Lodge houses have such lovely architecture! Lots of upmarket and vernacular features jammed into a small (compared to the ‘big house’ mansion it presumably served!) house. Lucky you.
