The graveled courtyard provides a further hard standing/parking and turning space for several vehicles and leads to the detached double garage.

There are large sections of shaped lawn, hard landscaped/paved areas providing ample space for outdoor entertaining/furniture. Borders containing an abundant variety of shrubs, flowering plants, mature trees, ornamental shrubbery and hedging, with the remaining land made up of grass pastures suitable for the accommodation of livestock and particularly suitable for those who enjoy equestrian pursuits.

From the land there are attractive walks amongst the adjacent beautiful countryside and an unusual benefit is the ability to hack out from the property on horseback.
