The previous owner was a horticulturalist and used her considerable knowledge and imagination to design a wonderful garden. It is divided between raised organic beds for vegetables, a polytunnel with electric power point and raised beds. Centrally there is a large netted fruit cage with separate beds for blackcurrants and raspberries. Then there is a lawned area with a pond and water feature. A separate paved area with a hexagonal glazed summer house. There are several small apple and fruit trees and many shrubs and climbers providing a colourful display throughout the year. The whole area is fenced and sheltered by slightly larger trees making the garden almost completely private. Hidden by the fruit trees and shrubs is the rainwater tank that considerably reduces the water charges.
In many ways, the garden reflects the area of Kingsbridge which has a voluntary garden group which provides many mini-gardens around the town besides many spectacular private gardens on open display.
