The grounds extend to approximately four acres of level ground that benefits from a bright south easterly aspect. Formal gardens surround the house displaying many pleasing features including a lovely rose garden, a number of charming water features and a Ha-Ha. A flagstone terrace extends the length of the pool house creating a perfect outdoor entertaining area. The remainder of the ground is divided into a productive growing area and a fenced paddock suitable for a pony. The rich alluvial soil is beneficial to the growing of vegetables, there is an established vegetable plot with the associated buildings, greenhouses and garden sheds amongst them. Due to its proximity to the Slimbridge Wetland Centre, this is an ideal location for enthusiastic bird watchers.
