Surrounding the front of the house there are large paved seating areas and from here these views can be enjoyed. There is a central border, pergola with climbing plants, lawned garden with central pond and stone edged borders. There is then a large and productive vegetable section with some soft fruits, 2 Greenhouses and good sized Garden Shed. The next and largest section of the garden is laid to lawn, interspersed with a selection of fruit trees, large and useful covered log store and a wildlife area.

Adjacent to this is the old single garage which is now a workshop and a brick built store. The grounds total an acre.
