The walled garden is large (900 sqm) and is shaded by mature trees. It has a lawn, shrubs and gravel patio areas. Table and chairs are provided for dining al fresco and there is a barbeque. The garden is a pretty spot for relaxing and a small round raised swimming pool (8m diameter) has been added, a great bonus for cooling off in the summer months. In a nearby completely separate house lives a caretaker who tends to the pool and garden and a washing machine is located in an outbuilding in the garden.
