A dividing wall with wrought iron gates leads into the principal garden which lies to the east of the house. This is laid out in separate compartments in the Victorian style. The front area comprises a flat lawn divided by two large rose beds with a privet hedge. There are trees along the south wall and shrubs in the corner. There is a wooden garden shed in the corner which has a paved floor. There are flower borders adjacent to the verandah and from this area stone steps lead down into a long rose trellis which leads in turn into the back garden.

Gravel paths divide off a fruit garden on the eastern wall and there is a further lawn within a U shape of hedges and shrubs. Beyond this is a paved, sheltered patio with a hedge above the cliff tops. There is a greenhouse in the corner and a small barbeque. There is a further garden to the north of the house from where there is access into the basement. This has borders which are well stocked with shrubs and plants.
