The communal gardens and grounds at Cowley Place are a particular feature of the property, being available exclusively for the private use of its residents. The grounds are mainly made up of wellmaintained parkland and wooded areas, with the River Creedy flowing along the boundary of the perimeter and merging with the Exe, before it continues beyond Cowley Place to Exeter. Lawned gardens run down to the river and a number of paths meander through the land creating some wonderful walks. The grounds extend to approximately 11 acres, including circa 400 yards of fishing rights on both the Exe and the Creedy. In addition to the gardens, there is a heated indoor swimming pool, a wine cellar, a games room and a tennis court, all for the use of the residents.
