To the front of the property is a long sweeping driveway with a vast lawn to the front of the house ideal for larger parties, weddings and marquee events. A beautiful walled garden lies to the side of Smedmore House, with direct access from the Cedar Room. This contains a large flat croquet lawn and is surrounded by beautiful flower borders, shrubs and mature trees, with various paved areas for relaxing and dining al fresco. There is a Mediterranean garden to the rear of the house, with a variety of flora and herbs, and a Summerhouse next to the walled garden which is licensed for outdoor wedding ceremonies.
