Three large old barns, totalling about 500m² of floor space, are behind the main house. They are in good condition with recent repair work having been done on their roofs. One of the barns has a garage and two stables. The other two are mainly used for storage.

Attached to the second cottage is a lovely old 19th century metal framed greenhouse. There are also a few more old outbuildings including a lovely old tower near the river that could be restored/ renovated to create a lovely and unique character feature.

The park surrounds the house and outbuildings and is a combination of prairie and woodland with a number of mature trees.
