Connamara’s gardens wrap around the house.

The front garden is bounded by a stone wall, painted white. Immediately across the road is an area of fields and woodland which are used for grazing horses and cross country jumping. Wrought iron driveway gates lead to a loc bloc driveway to the side of the house, where there is further parking for multiple cars and a car port.
The gardens to the rear are fabulous with multiple different areas to enjoy. A sunken garden with a BBQ pit has a beautiful, cobbled stone wall and is a sun trap. It also has electricity if you wish to sit out at night with a light. A gorgeous clematis weaves through the iron fencing around the top of the wall. The lawn is extensive and has a large bank to the rear with a rockery, flowers, heathers and mature shrubs. There is a chicken coop, greenhouse, potting shed and rear access to the garage/workshop. Throughout the garden there is colour. A productive garden with raised vegetable beds, plum and apple trees, redcurrants, gooseberries and blackcurrants to name a few. Truly lovely garden.
