Extending away from the terrace is a south facing lawn, bounded by shaped, well-stocked and colourful flower borders, with hedging and fencing to the boundaries.

A further paved terrace lies to the rear (west) of the house, rising to a second lawn, with timber shed, also bounded by well-stocked borders and featuring a pretty magnolia in one corner.

Proceed straight over the mini-roundabout into Portsmouth Lane and follow the road down the hill. After passing Brook Lane on the left hand side, the road becomes High Beech Lane and Freshfields is the first property on the left hand side.
