Woodside and Monktonmead

Residents of Arethusa Cottage

  • Woodside and Monktonmead lodges are available for your holiday all year round; both are heated in the colder months so are lovely and cosy in the winter. 

  • If you are holidaying without a car, we may be able to provide a return journey to Ryde Ferry Terminal.  Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • Parking for several vehicles is available in Rosemary Lane, directly outside the the lodge entrance. There are no other properties close by so parking is never a problem!

  • Please note that there are a dozen or so steps from the parking area to the lodges as our garden is on a slope. We regret that neither lodge is therefore suitable for those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.

  • Free wifi is available in both lodges and the mobile phone reception is fairly good for most networks, but this is not guaranteed!

  • Guests in both lodges are very welcome to use our garden but children should be supervised, especially around the pond (although this is fenced off and is gated for your safety). Please do not feed the fish with your own food, we will provide fish food on request.

  • Our dog, Bonnie, uses our own private area of the garden unsupervised, but when we are in the main part of the garden she is sometimes with us (if she's not asleep on our bed!). She is not allowed in the guest accommodation but our lodges may not be suitable if you, or any of your party have a severe allergy or are worried by dogs (although she is very friendly and will happily pay you a visit if you want her to!).

  • A washing machine is provided for your use in Woodside Lodge.

  • If you would like use of a highchair or travel cot, please let us know in advance so we can ensure these are available for you.  Please note that cot bedding is not provided.

  • Milk, tea bags, coffee and sugar are provided for you.

  • We hope that you will find all the crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment you need for your stay in your accommodation, but please do ask if you feel something is missing - we may well have a spare!

  • Tea towels, kitchen roll, cling film, foil, toilet roll and cleaning equipment is available for your use.

  • We will supply towels for bathroom use but please bring your own pool towels (if appropriate).

  • We have a few board games etc. in each lodge available for guests to use.

  • Leaflets etc. on the local area will be available for you to plan your stay, but please ask if there is anything you think we may be able to help with. A guest book is available and this is often a good source of information too!
