Lawn paths wend their way through extensive gardens and six Japanese style bridges cross the river, leading to countless picturesque locations for photo opportunities.

The pre-dinner food and drinks can be served on the verandah and on the lawns at the back of the house. The barbecue area has attractive outdoor furniture and provides a sheltered situation to enjoy the splendour of the gardens and peaceful surroundings.
