Outside, the generous secluded gardens are a horticulturalist’s paradise, including a mature woodland, herbaceous borders,plus a well stocked kitchen garden, orchard and soft fruit bushes. Paved patio areas offer secluded al-fresco dining space.

Outbuildings include a timber garden store, log store and a recently constructed Hartley greenhouse.
