Gardens & Grounds
The property is approached via a five bar gate which gives access to a gravelled drive leading between a well planted shrubbery to the south side, and to the northern side, a formal lawn with central beds and further mature shrubs with a group of mature trees effectively screening the lane beyond. The northern boundary of the property is marked by a mature hedge. The drive in turn leads to a gravelled parking and turning area and detached garage. From the parking area is a set of curved paved steps leads up to the south garden, which comprises more lawn and planted beds, and leads to the paddock area. This comprises a small orchard planted with several varieties of apple, pear, plum, cherry and peach trees and a vegetable garden partly planted with soft fruits. To the far side of the property, a gate from the east lawn leads to a substantial paved terrace which immediately adjoins the house and is the perfect vantage point to take in the views. In total the grounds extend to 1.88 acres.

Follow the lane to the village and just before the village church, take the right hand turning. Follow the lane around the edge of the church and take the first drive on the left where the property can be found.
