On the far side, there is a further lawn which has a wildlife pond, fish and lily pond, a large flat decked area which is a suntrap and is perfect for barbecues or al-fresco dining.

Outside the back door of the property, there is a flagstone patio and various seating areas from which to enjoy the setting.

There is a woodland garden which has paths and seating areas and camellias and snowdrops adorn this area during the season. A vegetable garden has large raised beds, half of which are currently used as a cut flower bed, and the other bed is vegetable bed. Assorted fruit bushes include redcurrants and blackcurrants. There is a greenhouse, and a poly tunnel. Continuing on, this area leads to a wild flower meadow which could be used as a paddock, if required, for animals or equestrian use.

The orchard has more than 30 apple trees, some pears, plums, edible cherries and a medlar. A barbecue hut and seating area with pergola draws the eye to an avenue of flowering cherries under planted with white daffodils. Some areas are planted with camassias and there are lots of wild orchids and areas of English bluebells.

The mini arboretum has deodara, dawn redwood, eucalyptus, cercis forest pansy, magnolia grandiflora and chrinodendron, to name but a few.
