To the right of the approach behind dry stone walls is the extensive garden which is directly to the side of the property and has an abundance of mature shrubs and seasonal bulbs providing a plethora of colour all year round. There are also a number of ancient trees - some as old as 500 years, these are regularly checked by experts who have confirmed they are no risk to the property. There is a block paved driveway leading up to the house giving parking for several cars which is lined with raised flower borders. The yard to the rear of the property spans 17 meters by 16 meters with purpose built kennels which are approximately 7.5 meters by 7.5 meters.

When the conservatory was built there was the option to take it further across to incorporate the stairs for internal access, there is electric to the cellar.
