3/134 Court Lodge, stable yard
and walled gardens

House, now flats, with courtyard and walled gardens. C17 core, enlarged c.1710, mid
C18 and mid C19. Red brick, extended and cased with sandstone with plain tiled and
slate roofs. The main elevation is that to south to the park, of three storeys with
parapet and projecting two bay wings at left and at right with separately hipped
roofs and with stacks to centre, to centre left and centre right. Regular
fenestration of seven glazing bar sashes on each floor, some with glazing bars
missing, all with keyed surrounds, those to centre on first and second floors round
headed. Projecting from and returned to this front a low stone wall with regular
buttress piers enclosing the garden terrace. Entrance front to left with three
storeys of 5 bays, the ground floor built out and with canted porch with panelled
doors. Right return (leading to the church) with irregular 5 bay frontage and with 2
storey canted bay, round headed stair window and half glazed door in pilastered
surround with flat hood on brackets and semi-circular fanlight. Rear elevation of
four separate blocks, only the right hand, towards the entrance front, of stone, the
centre two with steeper pitched slate covered roofs. Adjoining this elevation is the
stable yard with C18 coachhouse and outbuildings. Two walled gardens adjoin to the
north east, with red brick walls about 6 feet in height, buttressed and ramped at
various points and with boarded gates and attached sheds and outbuildings,
enclosing areas of about 20 by 35 metres in the more southerly, and 40 by 40 metres
in the northern enclosure. The house became the seat of the Morland family, Lords of
the Manor of Lamberhurst, mid C18, and one of the principal seats in the parish
(with Scotney and Bayham Abbey), Thomas Morland (d.1784) largely creating its
present character. See Hasted, vol.V and Igglesden, vol.XVII.
