Where to start with this fantastic garden. The vendors had used the land to run their nursery business and so the amount of varied plants in the garden are phenomenal. Having been extremely well tended to over the years you can see the amount of thought and love that has gone into planning the space which spans to 5.5 acres of grounds. The driveway is lined with conifer trees with the paddock, currently home to some alpacas and chickens, to your left hand side.

From the main house is an area laid to decorative stone which has space for dining and entertaining in the warmer months, with views over the formal garden. Here there are many flower beds stocked full of mature shrubs, plants and flowers which burst with colour. There is a buzz of activity from the wildlife paying a visit and bees coming and going. A garden room has French doors to the garden and windows to the rear and could be used for potting new plants, as a hobby room or reading space. Where the nursery was located are poly tunnel frames ready for the growing season and creating space to grow fruit and vegetables, a real opportunity to enjoy living the Good Life .

A large open fronted barn has space for a ride on mower or tractor and storage. This could have the potential to create stabling.

The woodland has been planted by the vendors and there are a number of species of which a list can be provided.

There is an area laid to lawn so that the odd football match can be played and enjoyed and this leads back to the paddock at the front of the property.
