OUTSIDE & GARDENS The gardens are arranged subtly over two levels enclosed by a combination of walled and fenced boundaries. The pathways and patios make it easy to navigate around the main house and gardens which are filled with an abundance of trees, shrubs and plants. Joined by a central circular lawn the gardens flow from wooded areas through to longer grasses and onto manicured lawns. The pool area has a Mediterranean atmosphere emphasised by the raised flower beds on either side and the Italian style paving surrounding it. The pool is heated and has an electric safety cover. The gardens at Swains Cottage have been carefully arranged and clipped in order to maximise the last rays of sunshine in the summer months.
