Sloping down to the river, an informal woodland garden contains some 50 species of Rhododendron and Azaleas, Ferns and other native woodland plants. There is also a 1 acre walled garden home to an ancient Mulberry tree and an orchard with many old apple varieties.

At the entrance to the property there is a single storey gate lodge which is in need of total refurbishment.
