The Cottage has two spaces at the front for parking and a private graveled parking area to one side. A garden door in a high brick wall leads into the gardens to the rear. These have been beautifully designed using the numerous mature trees and hedges to create a number of almost separate spaces, a shaded garden surrounded by box hedging with a walk way of espaliered limes leading to a sitting area, with to the rear a private wooded garden with a Summerhouse with windows and a brick floor. The lawned area of garden, with an ornate Raj style tent for entertaining, is bordered by superb Topiary in the shape of chess pieces inset with roses. To one side is another wooded area bordered by high hedges including a tree house.
A private graveled and stone flagged terrace lies to the rear of the house with steps leading to the raised beds and the rest of the garden.
