The gardens surrounding this property are simply stunning and have been lovingly cared for over the years. They are completely private, substantial and include a large greenhouse and timber outbuildings for storage.

There are meandering pathways leading through the gardens, with a woodland walk towards the orchard via the glorious lawn, which is surrounded by mature planting and trees. An alternative route could take you around to the impressive vegetable garden, where fruit cages have been left for the new owners to enjoy. The hedged front garden is also well-stocked with mature borders and trees and adjoins the driveway at the front.
