The well maintained and presented cottage grounds provide a lovely setting to the cottage and a pathway leads from the parking area up to the front door. The setting exudes scope to indulge in various garden activities of the keen gardener or even smallholder given the scope for hens and the like. For the gardener, a GREENHOUSE will remain. Equally, the large DOUBLE GARAGE has accommodated three full size cars making it ideal for the enthusiast especially as a WORKSHOP extends across the rear.

The mature boundaries include a variety of hedge plants and trees both evergreen and deciduous along with planted beds being close to the cottage inviting the setting out of tables and chairs for entertaining aided by french windows leading out from the main reception room. A lean-to at the rear houses the oil fired boiler supplying domestic hot water and radiators.
