The rear of the property has generous gardens which are south and west facing, enjoying a high degree of sunlight and privacy. A raised flagged sun terrace is accessed from the drawing room and overlooks the garden and countryside views beyond.

Planning permission was granted for the erection of a garden room on the west elevation. Whilst the permission has subsequently lapsed, the plans are available should a purchaser wish to reapply.
Wolsingham is a charming dales market town situated by the River Wear on the edge of the unspoilt North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding rural area is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and the stunning surrounding scenery is linked by a network of public footpaths, ideal for walking and cycling. The small market town remains much as it did hundreds of years ago and the annual Wolsingham Agricultural Show on the first weekend in September, which was established in 1763, is one of the oldest shows in the country.
