There is an extensive tarmac drive providing ample parking and turning space, which wraps around three sides of the property. Roadside there is additional parking which is chained off. From the lane the land is arranged mainly to the right and rear of the farmhouse and is currently sweeping lawn/grass, ready to be separated into garden and paddock perhaps.
