Outdowns Lodge was built originally as a two-up, two-down cottage, but was evidently extended soon afterwards to provide two extra rooms on the ground floor and one on the first floor, and a large lean-to with a corrugated iron roof.
There are drip moulds over the windows that project by about 2 inches. It was the Head Keepers residence, and up to the 1950s the runs used for rearing pheasants were still in existence. They were approximately 15′ by 12′, enclosed by wire netting to 6′ high, with weatherboarding along the sides to about 22″ high to form a windbreak. Most of the cottages had underground cisterns for catching rainwater from the roof and at this cottage the original one still exists.
