Dove Cottage is approached through a remote controlled gate which leads to an expansive parking and turning area. A pair of substantial double garages overlook the forecourt. The property has been in the same ownership for at least 40 years, and over that period the owners have carefully tended and landscaped the gardens to create a wonderful amenity to compliment the calibre of the house. Broad sweeping lawns are interspersed with thoughtful shrub planting, whilst a couple of charming summer houses offer a sheltered environment from which to soak up the view or enjoy al fresco dining. A secondary access from Moor Lane leads down the eastern side of the property giving an independent route to the grassland.
