Whilst Lyme cottage does not have formal gardens, its ample grounds lie to the rear. From the kitchen door, three levels of old stone terracing catch the sun and provide ideal places for alfresco dining with garden furniture or sunbathing.

The cottage can also be accessed from the road through a fully enclosed stone walled and gated front garden to the thatched entranced porch.
