To get to the main house there is a charming sweeping driveway with lawn either side, gates to the woodland which leads to a gravel drive area with ample parking for several cars, access to a garage, the main entrance to the house, timber greenhouse, and wood store.

The part walled formal garden sits in about 0.66 acres. This beautifully landscaped area has an array of mature plants, trees and shrubs, a raised planting area and from the top, incredible far reaching countryside views. There is a kitchen garden enclosed by deer proof fencing.

The woodland areas sit in about 5.3 acres encouraging an abundance of wildlife and are a joy to walk through, especially in Springtime when the ground is covered with primroses, followed in late April by a carpet of bluebells.
