What is defined as the curtilage
for a particular house will vary according to a number of factors, but in most cases it will comprise the
area of land around the original house (i.e. what is understood to be the garden/grounds of the house). But
the curtilage may be a smaller area in some cases, especially in the case of properties with large
grounds set in the countryside.

This appeal decision provides an
example of where it was considered that the extent of the “curtilage” of a property was less
than the extent of the grounds around the property.
