Outside to the east there is a most impressive Normandy barn of over 1,550 sq ft which is currently utilised for garaging and storage purposes.   

Oak Trees features oak flooring to a number of rooms, diamond leaded light windows with wooden frames and two sets of French doors opening to a southerly-facing terrace.

The gardens and grounds are a delight with a superb display of deciduous and coniferous trees and shrubs. Towards the southern end lie a former grass tennis court/croquet lawn and a maze, created using mixed hedging.
