Hi George- That's a great big empty plot, it looks like it's a fantastic place and you have loads of land to play with
My first question would be what do want to do with the land? It's a difficult one to advise as I might want different things to you.
It's probably not the right time to start on any major works/hard landscaping- maybe spend the Autumn/Winter having a think about any future design and planting. How much time do you have to spend out there doing the work and what's your budget?
My garden which is a fraction of the size of yours was radically redesigned this year, it looks great but it's still not finished. That's the thing, a garden is a long term project. I would suggest doing a bit at a time. Maybe start with lots of Spring bulbs, crocus, snowdrops, british bluebells & some daffs? That way those bulbs you plant now give you a show next Spring.
I would try and look for inspiration and see what you like... you certainly have a lot of space, the possiblities are endless
