Thanks Methuselah,

By memory its head was slightly triangular.
We did a google search and are pretty sure it is just a harmless grass snake, as we found a picture that looked very similar.
Hopefully he may have moved on last night in the cover of darkness.
I prefered him though to the horrible big spiders and lizards we are getting inside, might be the time to fumigate.

Thanks again,

Trace

Was the head fairly distinct from the body, more or less triangular in shape, or did the head blend with the body?

There is a (non-venomous) snake that looks like a viper with a triangular head and similar markings, but isn't.

Snakes rarely attack as they would rather escape, but if cornered, for example under a fridge, then they are likely to strike out.
