A typical English country garden frames the entrance to the cottage with a large lawn bordered by flower beds planted with roses and shrubs and a winding path to the front door. The lawn stretches out to the front of the property bordered and interspersed with mature trees.

The rear garden offers panoramic views across woods and farmland with perfect vantage points from which to enjoy the scenery. A terrace provides a lovely spot for fresco dining.
