Holmwood House is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds. The trees are protected and provide an abundance of colour throughout Autumn and the flowering seasons. A major feature to the West of the house is a small ornamental lake full of koi with a seating area and waterfall. Formal lawns can be found alongside the sunken orangery and a decked entertainment area off the kitchen and dining room.
The entrance to Holmwood House is through electric gates operated by remote control or via the internal telephone system. The driveway is extensive, winding through the grounds and in early Summer is resplendent with rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias of all colours.
Beyond the main house is a pillared entrance to a substantial 2 storey garage which can accommodate up to 4 cars with superb loft storage space over. In the grounds there are a number of small sheds and across from the kitchen is a potting shed with gardener's WC and utility sink unit which extends into a greenhouse. A kitchen garden lies between the garage complex and house which is enclosed by high brick walls and is divided into sections with pergola.
