Located in Worsley, The Woodside is perfect if you’re looking to get away from the bigger cities. It’s located just 24 minutes from Manchester via the A580 and A6, and just 20 minutes from Bolton via St Peter’s Way and the A666. The Woodside's origins were towards the end of the 19th Century, when it was constructed as a private house for use by the managers of the local collieries. Worsley has a long history in the mining industry, with coal being mined in the area since the 14th Century. Although the mines may be gone, the guests keep coming to our traditional building steeped in heritage.


There are plenty of exciting things to visit in Worsley, before or after your visit to The Woodside.

Love the outdoors? Make sure to visit Worsley Woods, occupying around 30 hectares of beautiful woodland. The site can be reached from Salford’s network of looplines or the historical Bridgewater Canal. The circular walk consists of public footpaths, trails, streams, a wild flower trail and there is also a brand new adventure trail where children can enjoy a variety of activity trails to weave their way through the woodland.

Why not also visit Blackleach Country Park? The park became the first one in Salford to become a Local Nature Reserve in 2004 and is a haven with 50 hectares of beautiful countryside set around an impressive reservoir. Holder of the prestigious Green Flag award, Blackleach is an ideal place to enjoy the countryside, take a stroll, picnic, go cycling or fishing, or simply watch out for the local wildlife. Take in the sights and history that Worsley has to offer, then head to The Woodside for a pint or delicious dish.
