The property is approached through timber gates from the country lane which meanders through the hamlet. The driveway leads around to the front of the house and further more gently ascends to the rear level, where the majority of the outbuildings, including the barn, are accessed. A lovely feature to the front is the water garden with meandering stream running through and wooden bridge leading to a screened sitting area. Immediately to the south of the house is the large expanse of lawn with a number of specimen trees and a featured avenue of ornamental Pear trees. A further area of kitchen garden lies to one side, whilst further garden areas rise around to the rear of the house. A particular vantage point to enjoy the garden is provided by the terrace accessed from both the garden and double drawing room. The rear gardens again provide a picturesque terrace with sunken garden on the sight of the original mill pond.

The apple orchard contains an avenue of Lime trees creating a lovely focal point, whilst the original quarry ascends behind the property and includes expanses of lawns with superb Oak trees.
