      Outside
      The Coach House is approached through the former gates to Wallingford Castle across a driveway to its own gates and a gravel driveway.

      The front and rear gardens have been beautifully landscaped with well stocked flower beds and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. A heated swimming pool is sheltered from the elements by a walled garden and decorated at one end with a grapevine laden pergola. The pool house/store houses pool equipment, heating and filtration units. A gate off the garden leads to a path which will take you down to the River Thames.

      In addition at the rear of the garden there is a gate onto the outstanding parkland from the former Wallingford Castle, which also will lead to the River Thames.

      There is a garage with adjacent workshop and an office with cloakroom, kitchen sink and beautiful stained glass windows which could be used as an annexe to the main house.
