Woodnesborough House is approached via a private driveway. In front of the main house there is parking for up to approximately three cars and the drive then leads round to the back of the property where the garage, with space for up to four cars, is located. To the side of the driveway at the rear of the house is a large lawn with a variety of mature trees. Opposite is a charming old brick wall with yew hedging, and an archway through to the formal garden. Running the length of the wall is a deep herbaceous border with hollyhocks, agapanthus, geraniums, fuchsia and other seasonal flowers.
There is a paved area with a central flower bed and space for a table and chairs, ideal for al fresco entertaining. There is also a very good sized log store.
The formal garden to the side of the property has a large ornamental pond, mature trees (including oak and ash) and a deep border planted with a superb range of plants and flowers giving year round colour and interest to the garden; copper beech and yew hedging surround this area.
Two cottages are attached to the main house. Both are in need of complete refurbishment but have potential to be either a very spacious annexe or holiday let cottages.
