Between the drive and the front of the house there is a meandering pathway flanked by banks of well stocked beds and this eventually leads up to a gravelled terrace with further paved terrace beyond, an ideal for place for table and chairs to enjoy the vista and for alfresco dining. To the rear of the property there is a covered store. An oil tank is screened and steps lead up to a rear garden, which is steep and follows the hillside, is laid to grass, interspersed with mature specimen trees and shrubs, including Acer, Hydrangea, Magnolia, Rhododendrons etc. To the right of the garden and to the parking area is an area of deciduous woodland and a former quarry through which a track is cut, ideal for walking one's dogs and also providing plenty of fuel for the wood burner. The gardens are not only a haven for flora and fauna but also visiting wildlife.
