Walled garden probably late C19; main gateway probably erected in 1911 at the same time as Dairy Cottage, and initialled CAS for Charles Assheton-Smith, who was created baronet in 1911.
The garden is surrounded by a coped rubble stone wall, which is swept down to meet the coped square ashlar gate piers. The iron gates have a heavily scrolled wrought iron overthrow in the C18 manner incorporating initials at the centre. The pair of gates are arch-headed, with top, foot and locking rails also ornamented, and decorative iron panels each side.
On the far SW side there is another, smaller, gateway with a single iron gate with the same detailing.
Included for group value with Dairy Cottage, the Butler's House, and other neighbouring listed items at the heart of Vaynol Park.
