Approximately one acre of mature landscaped gardens surround the house.  Inside tiles alternate with timber floors and  there is a generous number of occasional rugs. Although the house is relatively modern, the furniture is traditional, with period pieces of mahogany,  paintings, and attractive lighting. Doors from the dining area spill onto a south facing al fresco patio with paving slabs that ruin the length of the house. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped  and are well maintained. Within walking distance there are two hotel restaurants and a pub.
