Although there is no longer a complete set of farm buildings at South Wood those that remain are important. The stable and threshing barn are early examples, with 17th century origins. The 19th century cart lodge is a rare, double lodge. Evolved courtyard. The farmyard is to the southeast of the house and all that remains of the original set of buildings is a 17th century threshing barn and stable on the west side of the yard, a 19th century double, open-ended cartlodge and a small building at the north end of a long wall, which was the rear of an L- shaped range of buildings to the south of the yard. A number of other buildings shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey map have disappeared, including a range which adjoined the north west corner of the cartlodge and was parallel to the front of the house, forming a walled courtyard. Modern, concrete farmyard surface.
