The good-sized rear garden is accessible via two external gates, and directly from the property.
Mainly lawn, the gardens have been well tended and are complemented by borders planted with a variety of shrubs, flowering plants, and spring flowers, with wild anemones and snowdrops attractively dotting the lawn.
A lovely, gravelled seating area is situated within the garden to overlook the surrounding pastureland and woodland beyond, and a good patio terrace, which is perfect for seasonal dining, or that morning cup of tea or coffee.

The Outside (Continued)


Mature apple trees, gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes provide an abundance of seasonal fruit and there is scope for keen gardeners to enhance the garden.
