Most of the garden is lawn with mature trees on the boundaries, creating a long avenue effect. The lawn is approximately 100m long by 30m wide. Half way down the lawn is an old pond with a bridge over it. Beyond the lawn is the woodland which has several paths running through, each named with carved name plaques. The names include 'Muntjac Trail', 'Nanooks Way' and 'Charlies Way'. The woodland is a great source of firewood, as well as a rich habitat for wildlife with owls, deer and badgers often sited. The woodland slopes down to the property boundary where there is a small brook at the bottom of the valley.
