The wonderful garden is very simple in concept, designed for ease of maintenance and to take full advantage of, what must be, some of the best views in the region. Much of the garden is laid simply to lawns with separate areas, for example on the lower side of the drive, left with a wild garden including Buddleia and bracken. The gardens do slope but the cottage itself is on a level plateau with a lovely approach to the front door from the parking area through a formal front lawn and avenue of young trees. To the rear is a further level area of lawn together with a patio, ideal for the evening sun, no doubt wonderful sunsets and with the glorious westerly view. To the side of the cottage is a fuel and garden store.
