Woodborough is a highly regarded village set in unspoilt undulating Nottinghamshire countryside some seven miles, or so to the north east of Nottingham. The village offers a useful range of amenities - which include two village inns, a village hall, a tennis club, ‘active’ churches, highly regarded primary schooling and a recently opened general store.
Woodborough has been successful in “Best Kept Village” competitions for a number of years and is 2015 winner of its category.
Close to hand there are more extensive amenities and professional services in Arnold and on Mapperley Plains and from the village there is direct road access across Mapperley Plains into Nottingham centre.
In turn, the surrounding regional centres of Southwell, Newark on Trent, Mansfield and Grantham (with A1 connection southbound) are accessible from the house - as is the M1 Motorway network and the East Midlands Airport.
The recently completed A46 dual carriageway road improvements, which effectively link Lincoln to Leicester and the M1 Motorway (S), have improved commuting convenience from Woodborough (via the East Bridgford junction) to surrounding population centres which are now both quicker and safer and the village is very much on the map for the commuting worker seeking a rural village way of life, whilst remaining conveniently placed for daily travelling.
