The gardens: there is a pretty, stone flagged courtyard which is an excellent, sheltered, sun trap, there is a water feature surrounded by box hedging. A pathway leads down to the main garden which is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked borders to the sides and an orchard to the bottom end with various fruit trees. A pathway leads to a summer house and then two car ports and a garage. There is a further modern, three bays farm building with two stables and an open garage. Off the garden are two fields, ideal for someone wishing to keep a pony or other livestock. At one end of the large field our clients have, some years ago, planted a small copse of trees.
