To one side of the driveway is terracing with a range of shrubs and flowers and to the other side is an orchard with two vineyards, a wildlife pond, seating area. There is a secondary access through the paddock which provides access to "The Barn". Off the drive there is a detached timber garage with a metal up-and-over door and then the driveway continues to the side where there is a parking area. Immediately to the front of the property, there is the raised double sun terrace which takes full advantage of the spectacular southerly views to Haugh Woods and there is a lawned area with Box hedging, a further raised patio with iron railings and ornamental pond. To the eastern side, there is a vegetable garden and soft fruit cage, two greenhouses. There is a concrete pathway that leads to a range of storage outbuildings and then there is a gate to a pasture paddock which is sloping and stocked with a variety of mature and specimen trees with a further access to the lower roadway, two corrugated field shelters. To the western side of the property is a log-store and an oil storage tank. The paddock then continues to the rear of the property and beyond which, there is an area of mature and historic mixed woodland with wild daffodils and bluebells and this then leads into a further area of woodland with both native and specimen trees including Redwoods. This then backs onto the Mordiford loop walk.
