The Lodge sits in the largest and richest biodiversity grassland in Northamptonshire, with medieval ridge and furrow ploughing. The meadow is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the diversity of its flora species and sometimes there are also sheep in the Meadows. The nearby habitat hosts rare wildlife including: the Red Kite, Hobby and Siskin birds; rare butterflies such as the Purple Emperor and White Admiral; the great-crested and smooth newt; Natterer’s Pipistrelle and Long-eared bats; as well as foxes, badgers and two species of deer.

The remoteness of the Lodge is another of its distinguishing features, since it is only accessible by car along a 2 mile hardcore surfaced road through Forestry Commission woodland, or via a 2 mile foot or cycle path from Fermyn Woods Country Park.
