Full Description

The land slopes gently down to the east, it is largely down to pasture though some areas have been cultivated. There is a small copse and a pond on the land. The buildings are located close to Upper Woodside Road close to the private access gate.

There is a parking area accessed off Upper Woodside Road.

Former Poultry Building 13.3m x 7.1m (43ft 7" x 23ft 3")
Floor: concrete; Walls: corrugated steel or fibre cement; Roof: corrugated fibre cement.

There are some other buildings used for agricultural, fodder and general storage on the site including 2 loose boxes which will be included in the sale.

For equestrians, the Island has a wonderful network of bridle paths from which to enjoy the spectacular countryside and coastal scenery.


Purchasers should take advice from a properly-qualified planning consultant if their plans for use of the site are likely to be 'change of use'.


There is water connected. Further details can be explained at viewings. Electricity is nearby but not connected. It is suggested that photo voltaic solar panels could be used to provide a reasonable supply if wanting to be 'off-grid'.


From Wootton High Street, on the west side of Wootton Creek, turn North into New Road, signed for Little Canada/PGL. Proceed all the way up New Road until you come to a '5-way' junction. Turn left into Upper Woodside Road. This is an unmade road so quite basic. Blackberry Farm will be found on the left-hand side.

The Isle of Wight, situated off the South Coast of England, is becoming an ever-more popular location for permanent and second homes. Made popular by Queen Victoria, who had her maritime residence at Osborne, the Island is famous for sailing in the Solent; for Cowes Week; for its beautiful coastline including sandy beaches and The Needles; spectacular countryside and long sunshine hours. Sainsburys, Tesco, M&S, Waitrose, Lidl and Aldi all now have a presence as have many other national chains. Communication and transport links are excellent; regular car ferries connect with the national motorway network and fast catamarans have connections via Southampton and Portsmouth with direct trains to London Waterloo which can be reached within 2 hours of leaving the Island shore. Government-funded schools are numerous and independent schools (Ryde School and Priory School) thrive on the Island with some children attending prep and public schools on the mainland. Leisure opportunities abound - walking, riding, paragliding, hang-gliding, team sports, sailing, wind surfing and other water sports, rugby, football (Newport Football Club) cricket and golf clubs. Good transport links enable day trips to the shopping centres of West Quay, Southampton and Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.

Newport is the Island's main shopping and administrative centre, it has bus links to all the coastal towns and most villages. Within the town there are schools for all age groups, a cinema complex, theatres, doctors, hospital, restaurants, Inns, a tidal harbour and many other amenities. National shopping chains in Newport include Sainsburys, Morrisons, Lidl, Marks & Spencer, Asda, WH Smith, Boots, Dunelm Mill, Halfords and Currys and many others. Ferry ports for vehicles are situated at Fishbourne (to Portsmouth) about 4 miles distant and East Cowes (to Southampton) about 5 miles distant and Yarmouth (to Lymington) about 10 miles distant.

Ryde is the largest town on the Isle of Wight and has an array of fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, pubs, restaurants, a sea front promenade, marina, shops and entertainment. Ryde has 6 miles of beaches and shallow coastal waters which is ideal for swimming. Reaching almost half a mile, Ryde Pier is one of the oldest piers in the country. This is considered the gateway to Ryde as the Wightlink Catamaran operates from Portsmouth to the end of the pier and there is also a direct train from the pier through to Shanklin. To the East of Ryde there are the popular sailing villages which include, Seaview, St Helens and Bembridge. To the West of Ryde is Newport which is the main shopping district with many popular high street shops.

Wootton offers a good variety of shops and amenities including Tesco Express, Doctors Surgery, Public Houses, Community Centre and Primary School. The picturesque Wootton Creek is also close by.
