Outside, to the front there is a lovely sunny lawned garden the size of a football pitch with pretty mature borders and seating areas enjoying westerly aspects. To the rear there is a charming garden with gravelled patio that is perfect for al fresco dining and has mature planting to the boundaries and a low fence that takes advantage of the vista over adjoining farm land and grazing pastures for ponies and sheep.
