The parkland extends to approximately 11 acres and is bordered by mature woodland which is predominantly deciduous with some conifer, providing privacy and shelter for the parkland and house as well as being a useful source of timber. The woodland extends along the bank of the River Eden through which there is a very attractive walk beneath an avenue of mature lime trees. There is vehicular access to the parkland via a green lane which runs between the cottages and The Fox and Pheasant Inn with a series of field gates for entry.Please note there is a public footpath following the bank of the River Eden.
