Woodside is believed to date back to the 1800's but was extended in the 1980's to create a spacious four bedroom family home, being rendered and having stone quoins. The current
vendors have further improved the property, which is very light and spacious and extremely well maintained and presented to a high quality throughout, with oak doors, refitted kitchen and
bath/shower rooms. An adjacent detached barn has been converted to create further high quality accommodation ancillary to the house, but which would be suitable to provide a useful income as a holiday cottage, subject to the necessary consents.
