Both the dining room and the artist’s studio have double doors onto a west-facing sun terrace which in turn has beautiful views over the lawns, stream and lake.
Outside, the gardens include banked and level lawns, a charming stream and a small lake which is well stocked with fish. Throughout the gardens are a range of spring bulbs, bluebells mature trees and shrubs. All in all the grounds amount to around seven acres.
