The beautiful and mature gardens that surround the property to three sides are mainly laid to lawn on various levels. There are old apple trees and mature shrubs (many scented) with creepers, perennials and wild flowers which enhance the natural beauty of the old stone walls. In spring a mass of snowdrops are followed by daffodils, narcissi, bluebells and then the apple blossom. In summer honeysuckle and clematis climb the stone walls of the cottage and a laburnum trails its gold at the top of the hill. There is a pathway dividing the main lawn leading through a small gate onto Forder lane and a rough pathway up to the wooden garage with another small gate to the lane. The driveway provides parking for several cars and leads onto a patch of rough garden beside a stream, with a third small gate, which gives access to the rear of the property for maintenance. '
The thatch was completely re done in February 2011.
