A block paved drive accessed from Low Lane leads to the garage and outbuildings. At the rear of the house is a charming, gravelled terrace that abuts the house with a log store and pizza oven, sheltered by a beautifully laid dry stone wall. This makes an ideal space for al fresco dining, accessed from the family room. Broad and shallow steps ascend to the main garden which is predominantly laid to lawn and is part walled, and bounded by fencing and hedging. The stretch of lawn is flagged by herbaceous borders and a summer house nestled in the far corner alongside an abundantly planted flowerbed.
