The gardens are a particular feature of the property, having been terraced to create layers of well-stocked flower borders and seating areas which enjoy views of the surrounding forests and countryside. An extensive array of wellchosen and mature shrubs, trees and borders separate each distinct area, some of which are laid to lawn and some of which are gravelled. There is also a substantial vegetable garden, as well as a rear paved terrace area which makes the most of the picturesque aspect, perfect for dining in the warmer months. A gravel driveway sits alongside the property, offering space for several vehicles to park.
