A raised decked area blends into a gravel garden with a feature water rill curving through the length giving movement and the gentle sound of water to the seating area. To one side is a timber-built garden room, enclosed on three sides with the front open to the gravel garden. A neat lawn leads further into the garden that has an open aspect and therefore lots of light. At the end of the garden is a fabulous kitchen garden with fruit trees, raised vegetable beds and two greenhouses. The garden is separated from the countryside behind by a lovely dry stone wall.
