The house is surrounded by gardens with a more formal south facing garden and sun terrace at the rear of the house with views towards the tennis court and beyond.
A delightful heritage steam railway operates between Cheltenham and Broadway and passes the farm at the far end of the fields so as not to be anything but a positive and charming feature.
