Village Information

Red Lodge dates to 1926 when the first houses were built, although the public house is far older, having been recorded on a map at the site in 1885. The village has seen a lot of changes in recent years with many new homes from a variety of building companies built on the old rabbit warren lands of Freckenham Manor at the northern end of the village, Kings Warren Development. There is an active community with many local clubs and groups in the village and it is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Regular buses serve the village offering transportation to Mildenhall, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and other nearby towns and villages.
