A large level area of lawn is flanked by mature shrub borders and there are two apple trees at one end. On the western side, wooden steps lead down to a superb, large sunken dining area with a crushed sea-shell base and a magnificent pergola clad in a productive grape vine makes this whole area feel very reminiscent of the Mediterranean. Further wooden steps lead up to another good area of garden which is currently laid to lawn but lends itself rather well as either a kitchen garden or children's play area.
