The grounds at Gargrave Cottage are a true delight, found predominantly to the rear they extend to 0.67 Acre and are mostly laid to lawn with the borders filled with a fine selection of trees and shrubs. At the far end of the garden is an area of rough ground which would be ideal for use as a vegetable patch and or for the housing of chickens.
The gardens and the seating area to the rear of the house are well placed to fully enjoy the far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside with Hawkstone Hills visible in the distance. Mature hedges and fencing ensure total privacy.
