Approached by a long winding driveway from the road, the Rectory is set well back from the road and enjoys a very rural setting in grounds extending to around 6.5 acres. The driveway immediately in front of the house is around a circular lawn for an 'in/out' driveway and also gives access to the open garage which can accommodate a number of vehicles. To the side of the house there's a decking sun terrace which enjoys views across the lawns to the woodlands. The grounds are a mixture of lawns, with secluded seating areas, and natural woodland.
Travelling from Llandough towards Cardiff, pass the car sales on the left hand side. About 200/300 yards down the road, on the right hand side is a Bus Stop sign. Just before the sign, slightly set back, are green double gates - this is the start of the driveway to the Rectory.
