There is an area of gravelled parking to the front of the cottage with well established trees and shrubs including a pink lilac, winter flowering viburnum, willow and mahonia. Steps lead down to a seating area adjoining the cottage, with a stone fronted herbaceous border filled with cottage garden plants including geraniums and roses and wisteria and rambling roses grow to the front of the cottage. The main area of garden lies to the rear and is a particularly special feature of the property, including a pathway leading down through gently terraced areas. Adjoining the cottage there is a crazy paved terrace overlooking an area of lawn with well established shrubs including weigela, lavatera, hebe, spirea and roses with the pathway leading down through an arch with steps to a further garden with seating area and borders where mature shrubs including viburnum, magnolia, and camelias grow to name a few, but including many roses and sorboria. A picket fence with archway and gate leads to a wildlife haven with a small stream running along the boundary to the property. There is a “bog” garden situated here and it’s a useful place for composting etc. and the present owner has attracted many birds to the garden.
There are two small outbuildings, both located close to the cottage, creating useful areas to store logs / tools, etc. There is a storage area underneath the balcony/steps and the oil storage tank is located to one side of the parking area to the front of the cottage.
