Access from the Hall was via Bandyleg Walk. Since the Countryside Stewardship Educational Access Scheme was established in 1996, the orchard and woodland have been restored together with the old kitchen garden's peach wall, stream, pond and sluices.

There are now rare breeds of domestic animals, laid hedgerows and coppicing and other environmental features present.
