The Tollbridge stands well back from the road and is approached over a long drive through electric gates to an extensive parking area alongside the house. The property stands in extensive gardens which run along the bank of the River Wensum having a wide sweeping lawn with mature shrub beds and willow trees to the western aspect. From this area a bridge over a stream leads to a further area of lawn which is understood to have once been a vegetable garden partially enclosed by hedging and having a garden shed. The gardens to the eastern aspect again run alongside the river with a wide terrace adjoining the house, which gives access to the Toll Bridge itself. This Grade II Listed bridge, which is attached to the house, is understood to date from the late eighteenth century and is marked on Fadens map of Norfolk 1797.
Beyond the terrace the lawned garden continues away from the house with the river bank being quay headed and having a small jetty, once again this area of garden features mature shrubs as well as a pond, towards the foot of the garden there is a raised decked area with shelter overlooking the river offering another super spot to watch the wildlife including swans and kingfishers.
