From here a path leads across to the former trail race to the front door, while another walkway leads from the garages across a wooden bridge to the rear terrace, conservatory and back door.The gardens have been developed over many years, together with the river, provide a unique setting for the house. There are many mature trees, including oak, ash, beech, copper beech, chestnut, 2 metasequoia and a superb weeping ash. There are extensive lawns, herbaceous and shrub borders.On the far side of the house other bridges cross the main river and a smaller stream, and lead to a former lily pond with fountain.
