The cottage is entered via a five-bar wooden gate off the quiet country lane onto a large tarmac drive with space for a number of vehicles. The drive leads up to the side of the property and to the garage and adjacent carport. The garage has electric connected with a concrete floor and an up and over door. The link between the cottage and garage provides access to the rear courtyard and outside W.C. and log store, along with a spacious utility room which houses the newly installed boiler.

The gardens which wrap around the property are a lovely feature and include extensive lawns interspersed with flower beds, bushes and mature trees, enjoying the super views beyond from a slightly elevated position.
