A large patch of lawn, behind small stone walls, adjoins the terrace and a few steps lead up to the ménage (30m x 30m) and through to the natural wildlife pond. The remainder of the land is made up of a selection of paddocks and larger fields all of which are fenced/hedged and most of which have automatic water troughs. The gravelled drive leads to an ample parking area to the front of the cottage and stables.
The attached stable barn has five loose boxes plus a feed/tack room. There is a loft room above with separate access at the rear which is currently used for storage and could be converted, subject to the relevant planning permissions to provide a studio, office or play area for children. A lower stable block is found off the driveway and has a hard standing area to the front - 6 loose boxes, a hay loft over and a tack/storage room to the end elevation.
