Woodhead Homes is part of the Woodhead Group, which is based in Edwinstowe where it was founded more than 70 years ago.

Their award-winning development, Rufford Pastures, also based in Edwinstowe, was a landmark site for the family-run firm, as the company began to build its own homes again for the first time in 20 years.

With just 64 homes on a 6.7 acre site, Rufford Pastures was designed with quality, sustainability and space in mind.

Leo Woodhead, director at Woodhead Homes, said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised by the National Federation of Builders for our Rufford Pastures development.

"We are incredibly proud of the homes we’ve created and the wonderful community that has already planted itself in Edwinstowe, a place our family has called home for decades.

“We wanted to challenge the normal conventions of new build housing. The homes are genuinely flexible, large and spacious with generous ceiling heights, design flair such as double height voids and beautiful areas of glazing, connecting the inside to the outside.

“The fantastic team at Joseph Kemish Architects have embraced our design philosophy, with careful integration of architecture and landscape, you can create an exciting and very personal development, which encourages social interaction, a sense of belonging and pride of place.”

And Woodhead Homes will shortly be announcing news of its newest development.
