The main gardens are accessed via a five bar timber gate where there is a glass greenhouse and composting area all contained within attractive Quantock stone walling. A second garden gate gives access to the primary gardens where there is a stone built workshop and predominantly lawned gardens interspersed with a number of mature shrubs, trees and bushes.
