Stepping outside, the main garden is located directly behind the property and is predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed within natural stone walling. To either side of the garden, five bar gates give access to the individual paddocks, both of which have gated access off the lane the property sits along.
Individually the paddocks measure circa 0.85 acre with the second paddock being slightly smaller at circa 0.75 acre.
