Woopielaw Cottage is a charming, traditional stone built cottage. The house has been sympathetically extended and modernised in the past to provide the current accommodation which is set out on two floors. A particular feature of the house is the kitchen/dining room, a comfortable family space that benefits from an oil fired Aga.

The house benefits from a single garage and a private parking space. There is a south facing garden to the front of the house. The sheltered garden is laid mostly to lawn with a paved terrace.
