The gardens and grounds are at a raised level from the lane which is flanked by a high stone wall.

The cobbled path divides and continues either way to the front of the house. The garden is particularly well established with many shaped borders being well stocked with herbaceous plants and shrubs surrounding a reasonably large lawn where there is a oval shaped rose bed and a cherry tree. There are numerous flowering trees throughout the garden including some interesting varieties. To the north western side of the house there is a cedar octagonal summerhouse with leaded windows and a pair of doors whilst to the side of this is a cultivated area ideal for vegetables and cut flowers. Behind the summerhouse is an aluminium framed greenhouse and next to this is a side door opening into the garage. Accessed from the lane to the rear is a double width garage door. A small enclosed area of garden at the rear of bedroom 4 is accessed from the new kitchen.
