The park-like gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property and provide beautiful and incredibly well stocked flower borders, a multitude of mature trees, shrubs, plants, and lovely views over the property's own land.
To the rear is a large paved terrace with steps leading down to a long rose arched walkway which leads to a landscaped water garden, natural pond and the gardens. In all the property extends to about 5.9 acres.
