Woodruff Cottage

Woodruff Cottage was built in 1956 as a three bedroom detached bungalow and extended in 1995 by the current owners with two rooms in the loft space and a kitchen extension with cellar.  A solar thermal system provides the majority of hot water during the summer months and a woodburning stove supplements the heating system in the winter.  A 3.3kW solar PV system was installed in 2011. 

Richard and Paula also have a large vegetable garden, greenhouse and 8 chickens providing lots of sustainable food!
