The entrance to the property from Barcham Road is via a five bar timber gate which leads onto a gravel driveway to ample parking and the large double garage. The driveway continues to the woodland area through a gateway and track which carries on through the glade clearing to the stable area at the eastern boundary. There are several storage sheds, currently used as a hay store (capacity approximately 100 standard bales), wood store and further storage. There is an enclosed area with shed where the current owner keeps chickens. The two timber stables are approximately 12' x 14' and 10' x 12' and have turnout corals to the front.

The woodland was planted in 1999 with native trees and there is an attractive circular 'glade' with seating and ornate stone statues. To the rear of the property are the recently constructed block of two timber stables with individual fenced pens and some turnout areas. Beyond the stables is a circular lunging track. The current owner keeps two ponies at the property with careful management in the limited space.
