Around the house are landscaped gardens and grounds which are filled with mature flowering shrubs and established trees providing a private and secluded setting. At the rear of the house there is a substantial natural stone terrace which provides the perfect spot for enjoying the garden views. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and there is a natural pond bordered by aquatic plants and with a floating duck house. This is a lovely focal point and is well used by the local duck population and other wildlife visitors.

Golford Place benefits from several useful outbuildings. Of particular note is a period barn which was recently rebuilt and currently used for storage. Timber framed and displaying traditional weather-board elevations with magnificent beams and trusses in its vaulted interior, this provides potential for a number of uses. It could create the perfect self contained annexe or holiday let, subject to any necessary planning consent(s). Separate vehicular access is provided adjacent to the barn.

A recent addition is the Heritage style oak framed garage building providing two open bays for vehicles and a good sized internal room currently used as a gym. The former brick built garage is of good size and has been converted into a garden store, but again provides potential for a number of uses with its vaulted interior. There are also timber kennels with a run and a field shelter. The property is approached over a tarmac driveway leading to a substantial parking and turning area providing parking for numerous vehicles. In addition to the gardens and paddocks with horse fencing, there is also a delightful woodland area amid the 4.2 acres of gardens and grounds.

The property is set in a semi rural location on the periphery of the historic market town of Cranbrook. The town's picturesque High Street, flanked by an eclectic mix of period buildings, provides a good range of shops, public houses, restaurants and doctors surgeries along with the Parish Church of St Dunstan's and the towns noted landmark, The Union Windmill.
