Late 18th century sources note oak plantations, a lawn and shrubberies, while in the mid 19th century the house was described as 'standing in a small park'. Sale particulars of 1910 stated that the pleasure grounds were not extensive but overlooked a well-timbered park. Nevertheless the grounds included parterres, a wilderness walk, three walled kitchen gardens, a bee house, a number of glass houses including a camellia house and a tropical house with palms and ferns. The park contained several ponds and a thatched cottage orne which was used as a coachman’s house.
