We understand Woodside Cottage was originally built as a Pavilion for the famous Spa where Victorian visitors took the waters and played croquet and tennis on the lawns. Afterwards, the cottage was established as a tea room and eventually turned into the cottage it is today after the war. The accommodation at Woodside Cottage is deceptively spacious with the benefit of a dual aspect dining kitchen which has a good range of storage units and a sitting room with a wood burning stove and doors leading into the garden. There are three bedrooms, one which has fitted storage space. The cottage has in addition, a separate study, located off the utility which offers an opportunity for the creation of a home office. The spacious utility has further storage units, sink and plumbing for a washing machine. A walk in cupboard provides further ample space for storing items. There are many attractive features within Woodside Cottage including solid oak flooring, partial timber panelled walls and timber panelling to the bathroom.
