Woodgarlick farm is an organic smallholding of 5 acres with a fully and newly restored traditional cottage in very peaceful countryside on a cul de sac, surrounded by fields and forestry; where wood garlic (wild garlic) grows in abundance
Electric gates, 5 acres of mostly very good quality land and stunning views all around. About 3 acres are fenced off for sheep and goats. Fields are drained and over 100 trees have been planted. There is also a chicken run with housing, an organic veg patch and an orchard of fruit trees and bushes. Two natural springs supply fresh water for the ducks.
One of the nicest features of the property is its line of mature chestnut trees which are so hard to come by.
There are also several sheds (one adjoining the house and could be converted into part of the house) used for storage and a mobile home complete with conservatory, used as a guest house.
Traditional stone cottage, re-pointed inside and out and insulated with hemp and lime inside, one of the best natural, breathable insulators. The house has been fully renovated just 2.5 years ago in harmony with its original character and as naturally as possible.
Heating is solid fuel by a clay oven, a Stanley range with back up oil heating, both of which heat the underfloor heating downstairs and the radiators upstairs.
