Around the house is a forest clearing, full of inanimate golems - the clearing receives more light than the rest of the forest and remains fog free too. Here can be found some vegetable patches, with carrots and so on, as well as the occasional Explosive Barrel. Southron Oregano is also common here.
- Selene is resident here until after the quest Witch Hunt, after which the interior of the woods is becomes accessible.
- In Dark Arisen the path under the tree to the inner woods will have a Portcrystal to be found.
- The Witch Cottage bears a resemblance to the witch hut in the Berserk manga. The woods surrounding the hut in the manga also have a magical illusion in place to keep travellers from reaching the hut. Both huts also have golems set up around them to serve as guardians.
