Outside are a number of detached and attached outbuildings which have been variously used as games rooms and workshops, while to the rear are some stables.

The main gardens lie to the rear: the front garden is terraced and slopes gently towards the small orchard, while the rear garden has a stone-flagged patio, a pond and a lawned area, as well as steps which lead to the rear paddock. Most of the land lies to the south and includes around nine acres of grassland, and a pretty stretch of woodland with a stream passing through.

The charming village of Egton is perched on a south-facing hillside just above Egton Bridge, which has a rail link to Whitby (six miles), which along with Scarborough is just a short drive away. York is 46 miles.
