Outside the front garden is mainly paved with a number of flower beds and borders; there is a charming old well and a variety of roses climb the façade. The main gardens are to the side and the rear of the house and are accessed through a picket fence. Outside the kitchen is a large stone paved terrace. Steps lead up through a rose arbour to an expanse of lawn fringed by further shrub and flower beds protected by trees. On the southern side is a further rose arbour with rose and honeysuckle climbers.

The house sits well back from the valley lane in the heart of the popular village of Tarrant Gunville which has a church and a farm shop – nearby Tarrant Monkton has a good local pub.
