The room features an oak floor, together with a door onto a terrace overlooking the garden. From the kitchen, a door leads into a large utility room with Belfast sink together with a separate wc and a door to the garden beyond.

The master bedroom suite is generously arranged with a dressing area and en-suite bathroom. Overhead are two small Velux windows with views up the sloping rear garden. The bedroom itself is a large double room with windows to two sides enjoying views down the valley and into the canopy of the trees. Bedroom 4 is a single bedroom with a shower and separate wash-hand basin. Along the corridor there is a separate wc. Bedroom 2 is a well-proportioned room with views over the garden to the side together with a well-appointed en suite shower room.

Burhill Farm has been built into a bank set into the top of the valley above Buckland. From the side of the house a meticulously maintained wide grass path rises gently up through the garden with sloping banks either side left to wild flowers. At the far end of the main path is a greenhouse with a further path up the hill to the right bordered on one side with a post and rail fence draped in a glorious white wisteria. At the top of this path is a field gate into the mown top paddock with a soft fruit cage by the gate. The land slopes up to the top boundary with a line of fine old oak trees.
Around the house itself are well planted flower borders and a paved path passes behind the property. Adjacent to the village lane is a lower garden with an area of level lawn.
