Beyond the gardens, the orchard wraps around on two sides and forms a fenced and hedged enclosure of a mature and Somerset orchard with mainly cider apples and two Bramleys.It also features a small fenced bio diversity pond next to the Castle Street road access in the bottom corner.The orchard provides an excellent amenity for livestock out grazing with the bonus of the increasingly popular activity of cider making!At the far end of the orchard is a small bio-diversity pond.
