To the front and side elevations, there are extensive gardens, principally laid to lawn with an array of mature trees including Wellington Pine and Yew, with planted beds and herbaceous borders. Aisthorpe Hall has its very own cricket ground with pavillion and tennis court with far reaching views over the Lincolnshire Edge, a Jurassic limestone ridge.
To the North elevation, there is a separate gravelled driveway which runs past the side of the hall with further lawned gardens leading on to a stunning 18th Century stable block and carriage house, built of stone with pantile roof and original feature lantern with working clock. The stables include a tack room with three loose boxes and garage with twin hung timber doors and two further useful outbuildings, including a wood store and storage room which are accessed from the rear elevation.
