There are wooden seats at various points around the lake, together with a firepit and BBQ area. Lying to the south western side of the Mill and driveway is the main lawn area with a central water feature using part of an old cider mill.

The current owners have installed a 450m running trail which circles the plot enabling complete access to the grounds. Tucked away to one corner is a recently constructed timber outbuilding, currently serving as a garden store, but with potential for a home office or hobbies room. To the south west of the house is the spacious balcony area and pergola draped in wisteria, which can be accessed from the garden or the drawing room. Leading round to the rear of the house is a private garden overlooking a section of the Former Mill Race and another vast array of beautiful plants, shrubs and trees are to be found here.
