Woodland is a linear village spread out along the B 6282 just to the south of Hamsterley Forest. The Forest Drive through Hamsterley emerges from the woods just to the north of Woodland. The village stretches out for about a mile along the road. At the eastern end of the village the road turns to the south-east and heads towards the similar linear village of Copley. The eastern end of the village is called The Edge, and does run along the upper end of a hill that slopes away to the south.
