A rose covered archway then continues into a suntrap courtyard again enjoying the same magnificent far reaching views and a further archway leads to a storage area to the side of the house, enclosed by mature laurel hedging. Beyond the front door a cobbled pathway flanked by the church grounds wall on one side and a shrub border to the other leads to a pair of wrought iron garden gates which continue into a traditional walled garden which is an absolute delight. The cobbled driveway passes a store with a further open store beside and leads to a traditional brick built garage building. A level lawn is bounded by well planted colourful borders and enjoys privacy provided by the traditional high brick walling which is planted with a mature wisteria. There is an arched weeping willow tree and then beyond a mature old apple tree is a level vegetable garden with soft fruit bushes and a fine old greenhouse with raised decking and planted with an established jasmine.
