For leisure

South Lodge is set in an acre of landscaped gardens and borders a golf course and fields, giving it a semi-rural feel despite being under five miles from the centre of Milton Keynes and four miles from Junctions 13 and 14 of the M1. This also means there are lots of local amenities and attractions within easy distance:

 

Local facilities:

Restaurants. There are several excellent eating places within walking or short car distance, including both great pubs and a Michelin starred restaurant.

Shopping. There’s just about everything you could want within two miles of South Lodge, whether it’s a local deli and designer frocks or a Tesco’s, M&S or Boots.

Frosts. Worthy of a paragraph to itself, this locally and privately owned garden centre is a magnet to garden lovers from all over, and has been for sixty-five years. I’d tell you it’s in walking distance but you’ll need the car anyway for carrying all those impulse buys! It also has an excellent cafe and lots of unobtrusive entertainment for children.
