Outside
Hall House is approached via a lengthy Rhododendron-lined gravel driveway. This culminates in a carriage sweep at the front of the building, flanked by beds filled with flowering shrubs and topiary.

The shared park-like grounds are a haven of peace and tranquillity. A horticulturalist's delight, they have been formed through many years of thoughtful landscaping on the site. They incorporate formal gardens with sweeping lawns and established beds and borders filled with interesting flowering plants. There are more informal areas comprising a wealth of magnificent specimen trees including a majestic Cedar of Lebanon, which are under-planted with seasonal bulbs creating drifts of colour throughout the year.

There are pathways leading around the grounds, creating areas of privacy and seclusion and a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The Bronte benefits from a private stone paved terrace which is accessed directly from the drawing room which creates the perfect spot to enjoy the surroundings. At the rear of the building is a large stone terrace bordered by clipped box hedging and a further terrace is set on the south side, adjacent to a pretty gazebo.

Garaging is provided within a courtyard area approached from the drive. The garages present brick elevations with tiled roofs in keeping with the house and provide ample space for two vehicles each, plus there is visitor parking provided.
