There is a wildlife garden and a lovely wooded area full of ancient hardwoods and the approach to the manor is enhanced by the profusion of beautiful trees which frame it.  There is also a kitchen garden and orchard.

 

At one point at which the long private drive turns the bend to reveal the manor, there is a stream which feeds one of several large, old fish ponds.

 

To the east side of the gardens there is the old cobbled farm yard which runs between the large traditional stone farm buildings, which are set well away from the vicinity of the house.  These include the Threshing Barn, the Shippon and Stable, Barn and Feed Store.  There are also some modern farm buildings.
