An area of lawn, and a circular patio with adjacent timber-built summerhouse. Just beyond this the path splits and then leads to a wrought-iron gate, providing access for easy refuse waste bin collection and discrete bin storage. In the space behind the cottage, and its garage, is a paved patio area that provides a useful outdoor entertaining space with vegetable and fruit growing area to the side. Adjacent can be found;
