This property is bursting with character features including exposed timbers, sash and canted bay windows. Smallwood Lodge is currently run as a tea room to the ground floor and a hairdressing salon to the first floor. Recently the adjoining coach house has been converted to provide additional seating for the tea room with a mezzanine above. The mezzanine is currently used as store however could provide additional dining space. Smallwood Lodge benefits from a low maintenance garden to the front and a courtyard garden to the rear.
