Goodings Lane lies just outside Woodlands St Mary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by woodland and farmland. This hamlet is well placed for access to the thriving market towns of both Hungerford and Newbury where all amenities can be found along with rail links to London Paddington. The M4 (J14) is approximately 2 miles away, giving access to London, Reading, Bristol and Bath, and the A34 is accessed via the M4.

Approached via a private gravelled drive which is flanked by beautiful grounds and rural land beyond, the main country house has been divided into several residences some years ago. Gardener's Cottage, however, can be found just beyond the main house on the opposite side. The property has the advantage of being set within its own gardens surrounded by hedges which offer seclusion. There is parking for a number of cars in the driveway and in front of the oak framed open bay double carriage garage, with wood store to the side. Much of the garden is laid to lawn and wraps around the side and rear of the property.
The communal acreage (approximately 9 acres) includes formal gardens and woodland, paddocks and stabling and with a tennis court discreetly tucked away. Of great benefit in the summer is the outside swimming pool. All the grounds are maintained by gardeners and the owners of Gardener's Cottage have the right to use them.
