Welcome To Your Council
Woodhouse Parish Council provides local services to local people and visitors. It covers Woodhouse, Woodhouse Eaves and the surrounding farms and isolated dwellings. It is one of the largest in Charnwood by geographical area. It is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The development of our villages are partly bound up with the 'big house' Beaumanor, whose workers were housed in Woodhouse and later in Woodhouse Eaves. This website contains a lot of information about the area and the council's work. If you cannot find something, please get in touch.
Our logo
