The garden is lawned with borders, a kitchen garden area and an ornamental pool and domestic buildings include an outside wc and brick built store.
Planning consent has been granted for the conversion of some traditional farm buildings into three dwellings, two with four bedrooms and the other with three.
A large concrete yard lies between the house and the farm buildings which are on an entirely level site.
The buildings complex comprises a single storey range with a garage, dog pen and store, traditional barn with a meal house and loose box, workshop, barn range with 28 cubicles, a dairy with a 6:12 herringbone parlour, feed loft and lean-to, isolation box and six calf pens, stone barn, new four-bay steel frame building, silage building, cubicle shed for 84 cattle, six-bay Dutch barn with lean-to housing a further 20 cubicles, three-bay open fronted implement shed and three bay store, two general purpose buildings and a wooden lambing shed.
