The front boundary is defined by tendered hedging with opening to the driveway. The front driveway is shared with ‘Barnfield Cottage’ which is situated adjacent to the Farmhouse, together with ‘Tewes Farm Office’ situated on the opposite side of the Farmhouse grounds.
Formal gardens are laid to lawn at the front of the Farmhouse and tended by the estate gardener, with planted beds and established trees which include Silver Birch and Horse Chestnut. To the far front corner a retaining brick wall is screened by shrubs with brick steps leading up to a further raised lawn area. The front boundary is open to farmland and not defined by fencing to allow the Tenant unspoilt views across the Countryside. A pathway which is paved and cobbled, encircles the Farmhouse together with low brick retaining walls, steps up at the far end. Brick path leads to the side garden.
The side garden borders are well established with flowers, shrubs and trees. A pond is moderately concealed by overhanging trees and surrounding shrubs. Trees to the back of the pond and dense shrubs create a woodland atmosphere with a moss covered brick pathway leading alongside the pond eventually through to a "Secret Garden", concealed by established trees, hedges, and a lower hedge which allows a standing only view across the farmland and valley beyond.
The rear garden which is also laid to lawn, is tended by the estate gardener, with a few inset trees. The boundary hedge continues from the front, to enclose the grounds. A walled courtyard to the side of the Farmhouse is partly covered by a porch with external wall hung bell, opening leads from the rear garden, wooden gate opens to the driveway.
A detached double garage is situated just inside the driveway entrance on the opposite side of the grounds to the Farmhouse, courtesy door and window to side and rear elevations. Power and light connected.
