A gated access leads to the front garden and rear terrace which is a lovely sun trap throughout the day with low level retaining brick walls with planted flower and shrub borders.
A sun terrace wraps around the entire front of the house and extends to the orchards on the far side. Part of the terrace is covered by an open fronted Victorian style conservatory which is ideal for entertaining all year round. The formal gardens are predominately laid to lawn interspersed with well stocked flower beds and shrub borders, enclosed all round with mature hedging and trees. As you walk to the far end of the house there is a paved path that leads in to a second paved terrace area where there is a summer house. Looking out from the property on the left hand side there is a beautiful weeping willow tree which provides an elegant dappled shade and an ideal seating place should you wish to seek shelter from the sun. From most points of the garden, views over the Stour Valley can be seen to the front. To one side of the formal gardens there is a small orchard with a number of planted fruit trees. A holly hedge and gate leads through in to a 3.5 acre planted millennium wood known as Daisy's Wood, which provides an excellent spot for walking dogs or playing games with the family. The neighbouring farmer has a right of access over the driveway between the formal gardens and Daisy's wood.
