In 1848 Woodstown House was held in fee by Lord Carew when it was valued at £76. Lewis refers to it in 1837 as the seat of Lord Carew. Slater refers to it as the residence of Lady Jane Carew in 1894. In 1774, Smith stated that Woodstown was "the house and improvements of Mrs. Matthew". The ITA survey of 1945 stated that it was then owned by the Hearne family but unoccupied and was "suitably situated for a hotel". It was subsequently let to visitors who included, in 1967, Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy (widow of John F. Kennedy) and her children. In 2011 it was offered for sale.
