The professionally landscaped formal gardens are a major feature and are enclosed by high mature hedgerow for privacy.

Features include spotlights, water features, as well as a deep koi pond. There is also a designated vegetable growing area. A custom built log cabin has power and heating and a slate terrace. It is currently used as a pub but could be adapted for use as a home office/studio.
