Woodlands occupies a very private plot and is located in one of the most favoured parts of Grampound village away from the busy main road. It is an interesting old house thought to date from the early 1800's when it was part of the Trewithen Estate and whilst carefully refurbished and updated over the years it still remains its traditional atmosphere and character. There are two main reception rooms, a fitted kitchen with gas fired Aga, three bedrooms (the master has an en suite w.c) and a small cot room/study, as well as a bathroom, two shower rooms and a very large conservatory overlooking the garden. A substantial double garage stands alongside the house and the large secluded grounds are perfect for those with children and pets.

The village of Grampound lies on the A390 between Truro and St. Austell and offers a variety of local facilities for daily needs inducing shop, church, primary school, pub and restaurant. The village has the benefit of a regular bus service and is also close to the picturesque attractions of the Roseland Peninsula and the south Cornish coast. The city of Truro with its fine Cathedral, major shopping centre and main line railway link to London (Paddington) is about nine miles. St. Austell is about six miles.

The house is an attractive L-shaped building with mellow stone elevations and feature brick window arches under a hipped roof (a date stone of 1680 set in the front elevation is probably from the earlier bridge in Grampound which has been widened on several occasions). Windows have replacement double glazing and this theme continues to a large conservatory on the south western elevation which overlooks the garden. A utility room and ground floor shower room have been added in recent years and the upstairs bathroom and shower room replaced. The accommodation is well presented and there is gas fired central heating with radiators throughout.
