Outside, the rear garden is beautifully landscaped and offers a good level of privacy. It has a favourable west-facing orientation and, in total, extends to 180 feet, with a more formal area with cared-for beds, a lawn and a patio directly outside the house. 

The garden slopes gently downhill, where a gate leads onto a further enclosed section which was once used for growing produce, and there is a mature Cider apple tree, a greenhouse and a shed.
