A pedestrian gate leads to the rear gardens which are a real selling point of the property and are enclosed within attractive Blue Lias stone walling enjoying a great deal of privacy and seclusion. Immediately adjoining the house is a flagstone patio with gravelled path which leads to a formal ornamental fish pond with well established borders and attractive box hedging.
