Chase Chocolate Notes
This gorgeous Breakfast and Brunch Coffee Shop will make you a delicious Danes Speciality Coffee.
You wont have to walk far, they are situated at 45 Onkaparinga Valley Road about a 6-10 minute walk depending on how quickly you can walk for that coffee fix!
This is not all that they do mind you, and conveniently open from 6.30am to 4.00pm!
If you feel like something to eat they have wonderful breakfast wraps and toasties, and if you prefer something on the sweeter side their cakes and desserts will hit the spot!
Highly recommend this coffee shop and it is always bustling with locals and visitors!
Barristers Block Winery
Barristers Block is a must do visit when in Woodside. This family owned winery is surrounded by beautiful gardens with these amazing Adelaide Hills views!
The cool climate of the hills have delivered some world class red, white and sparkling South Australian wines you need to try!
Walking in to the property you always feel so relaxed to be away and surrounded by such beauty, then excited to do a tasting of some yummy wines! Find your favourite to buy and share on the lawns and enjoy! Their food platters are always generous and tasty!
Make the experience your own, whether you wonder down on your own, with a loved one or group of friends! The good news is if you enjoy a scenic walk it is only 10-15 minutes from property! A must do!!
One of the joys of Woodside is that if you enjoy getting out and doing something a bit different you can bike your way along the Amy Gillett bike track which is on your door stop. Very easy and convenient!
Fresh air in your face, wonderful views of vineyards, beautiful farming land and a quality bike way to travel on!
You can hire your bikes in Woodside, approximately a 2-3 minute walk to the main road to collect it and off you go!
Particularly heading towards Charleston is my favourite ride, stopping in the main street and enjoying some lunch in the pub’s outdoor garden area (their food has never disappointed), then a wonder over the That Pony Shop and on your way you go, this always makes for a very enjoyable afternoon!
The Charleston Hotel
The Charleston Hotel is just as charming as it says it is! This great country pub, nestled in the gorgeous Adelaide Hills, and is only a 20-minute bike ride or 60-minute walk from Woodside (4.4 km).
We have enjoyed many times sitting in the beautiful beer garden and is so scenic on sunny days you feel like you are a mile away from the grind of everyday life! On those chillier days the open fires are roaring warmth and comfort to enjoy.
Lunch and Dinner is 7 days, and All-Day Dining on weekends and public holidays, make an afternoon of it and enjoy the delicious pub food, a good selection of Adelaide Hills wines, beers, and ciders, and great hospitality!
That Pony Shop
In Charleston, That Pony Shop, is a beautiful homeware and gifts shop, who doesn’t love to wonder through a boutique shop!
Always the way to find something unique, something different to take with you! You’ll want to come back!
A wide and forever expanding range of gallery, gift, home & fashion, every time you walk into this shop it’s always like the first time!
The Bedford Hotel
Where do you start with The Bedford Hotel! When you are away from the normal life, visiting the Adelaide Hills, the sun is setting over the farmland (ahh) and dinner is soon upon us! But cannot be bothered cooking!! But want to eat something yummy and satisfying…
How many times I have stayed in Woodside and I crave one of The Bedford Hotel dinners! Their food is absolutely yummy, fresh produce with lots of flavours you always feel satisfied!
There is such a variety on the menu, you can stay safe and go with the traditional pub food (you’ll be happy), or try the Asian menu which has been created by Mav (highly addictive food it is that good, her culture shows all through these dishes), the steak is out of this world and love the crunchy fresh steam veg on the side and we cannot forget the wood oven pizzas with are handmade for you on ordering!
This place is a great local pub, always greeted by Dale and his friendly staff! Play a game of pool, listen to some tunes… a nice night out in Woodside!
(an easy 3 minute walk from the property) Oh and they do get very busy with their meals, so book a table!!! (or takeaway!)
The Woodside Providore
This is the most modern newly renovated cafe/restaurants in Woodside. It has a great space inside with that modern restaurant feel to it and the alfresco is a great area that is protected from the elements, but you are roadside and can absorb the atmosphere of this great township whilst being very comfortable!
It serves great coffee, and have enjoyed many breakfasts there! They do all day menus, and dinner on Friday and Saturdays, with a nice looking menu of seasonal dishes and burgers amongst other options and their wine list is great show casing Adelaide Hills wines to enjoy!
Klose’s Supermarkets & Cellarbrations
To all my visitors and guests! I need to say the days are gone of packing bags of food and drinks for your getaway! Your time is better spent!
The most convenient part of staying at Woodside is you just need your overnight bag, if you need food or drinks, wine and beer, we have a brand new supermarket which honestly has everything you would need that is a 3 minute drive from the property, situated on the main road! Easy!!
