The outbuildings include a two story barn incorporating a workshop, a tandem garage, field shelter, implement store and other ancillary sheds.

The house is approached by two drives, the lower one providing parking for a number of vehicles. The top drive serves the side of the house as well as fields; here there is parking for a further three cars. The land surrounding the house comprises a walled paddock, 4 fields to the rear of the house; beyond the front gardens is a lane, The River Bovey and the 5th field. All the fields vary in size and character, are predominantly tree lined and enjoy country views; they have been well maintained by the owners, used mainly for their own horses. Currently there is a short term sheep grazing agreement in place for the back fields, to a local farmer, which could probably be extended if wished.
