The grounds of Tracey House are a designed landscape of considerable significance. Tracey House is dramatically sited on the hillside with a formal terrace, a lower terrace overlooking parkland with many fine specimen trees. The carriage drive from the lodge survives, as does the secondary entrance piers and gates to the west of the house. To the east is a woodland garden with rides, many fine specimen trees and a charming formal garden at a much lower level than the house with a fountain and pedestal with its ball finial now sadly lying on the ground alongside. The large walled garden to the north remains but regrettably several lengths of the brick wall have been replaced by timber fencing.
