The landscaped rear garden is laid principally to lawn with flower and shrub borders and a variety of mature trees. To the rear of the house is a block paved patio enclosed with box hedging and a timber summerhouse. The entire property is situated in Aspley Heath woods and is adjacent to Duke of Bedford land.
