The gardens which surround the property adjoin the woodland and offer a tranquil haven in which to enjoy the sea views and the wide variety of wildlife. There are areas of lawn with flower and shrub beds, planted with a variety of flowering shrubs and spring bulbs, as well as a selection of roses, rhododendrons and camellias, giving year round colour.

To the front of the house steps lead down to a terraced area known as the Crow's Nest, an ideal spot to sit and enjoy the sensational sea views and evening sunsets.
