The house also comes with a detached brick and flint studio, which was recently restored. There are other adjoining outbuildings which come with the property. Outside, the house is surrounded by its own gardens, which are mostly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and plants, and a lovely flint wall bordering the front.

Cansell Grove Farmhouse is located in the elevated hamlet of Poy Street Green, which lies just half a mile from the village of Rattlesdean and just over nine miles from Bury St Edmunds.
