Accessed from the kitchen is an area of hardstanding between the house and outbuildings that provides a sunny and sheltered space. The useful outbuildings of mellow brick with a slate roof are all contemporary to the house. At the end of the gravel drive - providing ample parking for several cars - is the garage with up-and-over door. The large rear garden, tucked behind a stout yew hedge, is largely laid to lawn with a large willow on the eastern corner. There are two sheds, a greenhouse, vegetable patch along with shrubs and flower beds. Behind the far hawthorne hedge boundary are open fields, rolling hills and uninterrupted rural views.
