The formal gardens to the front are enclosed by mature hedging and are laid to lawn, benefitting from views of the surrounding fells. The gardens to side and rear are also mainly lawned with mature planting, various trees and offering views to the fells and the Pennines. To the side of the sun room is a pleasant patio area and additional seating areas may be accessed through arches in the hedgerow border providing a perfect spot to enjoy evening drinks as the sun sets over the fells.
There is a useful parking area to the side of the main house which borders the lane and allows access to side porch however additional space is to be found via a separate private drive further up the lane which leads down to a parking area for the two holiday cottages, a gate into the fields behind and then a gated entrance leads to a stone built double garage with parking provision for a further 3-4 cars.
The two holiday cottages enjoy their own outside space for seating, among various trees and this includes a timber summerhouse with veranda.
