GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The Old Forge enjoys a pretty cottage garden to the front of the house. To the side large double gates give access onto a gravelled parking area. Stone paths lead across to the main sun terrace and outside entertaining area. Access to the far side leads into a store and what was the original the forge beyond. This offers huge potential to create further accommodation extending from the main house. A featured wall with an arched gated entrance leads to the main garden area. This is laid mainly to lawn with a mature hedge to the side. Beyond this is a further area, which was once the vegetable garden, offering scope to extend the garden further. On the other side of the lane - adjacent to the garden is a large area of wooded land. This used to house chickens etc. to the property and now offers an extended useful space with the opportunity to re-develop.
