An attractive courtyard garden is located to the rear of the house and offers a tranquil place to enjoy a morning's coffee, afternoon tea or a spot of al fresco dining. Roses burst with colour from Spring into Summer whilst verdant greenery offers shade and privacy throughout the year.

Discovery Quay is well worth a visit as luxury yachts take shelter in the marina, boutique shops and bars centre around a landscaped piazza.
