  • history

    Salterbridge is a classically proportioned pavilion gatelodge, which was built c.1849 by the Chearnly family, who owned the estate from the mid 18th Century until the 1950s. The lodge, though obviously in habitation in the 1930s when the Glanville family lived there, was derelict by the 1950s.    Its function, like all gatelodges, was to indicate to the passer-by the good standing and taste of the original owner, and to display some of the features of the architect's work, re-interpreted from the big house.

    "Fabulous house and so comfortable. It’s a home away from home. Cosy and just the right atmosphere for somewhere to chill out and relax. Spectacular part of the country and with so much to do! "

    Lisa and Jennifer, Louth

    "A wonderful house in a beautiful area, perfect location for a girl to be spoilt for her birthday. A fabulous surprise, we loved every minute in our romantic lodge and loved our walk up to and visit to the ‘big house’ up the drive. "

    Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in.  Consequently, you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired.  Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting.  In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding. If you have any queries about the property you are interested in and would like more clarification please contact Irish Landmark at
