There are two attic rooms on the second floor. Externally the established gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and are stocked with an abundance of shrubs, plants, specimen trees and hedged boundaries which provide privacy. A particular feature of the garden is an impressive detached lodge which provides ideal space for garden parties and entertaining.

There are a number of useful outbuildings including a detached former coach house which is currently used as a hobbies room and garage.
Located in the heart of the village, Corston is full of picturesque medieval architecture and the quaint Gauze Brook, a tributary of the River Avon, which meanders through the local countryside; this small village has charm and visual appeal in equal measure. Corston is a small village located midway between the M4 and the historical town of Malmesbury, which is officially recognised as England's oldest borough. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by two branches of the River Avon, it boasts buildings of golden Cotswold stone and beautiful river walks. Famous for its ancient Abbey and elaborate 15th century Market Cross, the town may well have history round every corner but is also bursting with life, enjoying excellent independent shops, a Waitrose, charming cosy pubs, friendly cafes, regular farmers' markets and a busy local events schedule. Malmesbury is five miles north of the M4 (Junction 17) so within easy commuting distance of Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham and Swindon. Mainline trains from Chippenham ( 7 miles ) and Kemble ( 10 miles ) link with London Paddington within approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
