Woodseats is a sprawling residential district to the south of Sheffield city centre. Chesterfield Road (A61) runs through the heart of the area, but can get congested with school-run traffic and then worse still at rush hour. Buses frequently run along Chesterfield Road, including numbers 53, 25 and 253. Nearby areas include Abbeydale, Nether Edge, Meadow Head, Norton and Meersbrook.

The copious number of affordable two-bed red brick terraces makes Woodseats a haven for Sheffield born first time buyers and graduates who wish to continue their stay in sunny Sheffield. The area is perfect for those who want more for their money with all the extra benefits and privacy you can expect from a house, but not from a block of flats. Most terraces have off road parking and gardens just large enough to invite friends over for a summer BBQ or a winter snowball fight. The rental market has never played a huge part in Woodseats, resulting in a more stable population.

You’ll find everything you could possibly need within walking distance in Woodseats – convenience is the byword for this hilly locality. Even for the basics you’re spoilt for choice with a Tesco, Netto, Morrisons and Farmfoods all on the doorstep.
As well as traffic and terraces, Chesterfield Road is jam packed with shops, pubs and takeaways. A stroll along this street will take you past Blockbuster, KFC, Domino Pizza, numerous charity shops, Books Galore, Threshers and Cartridge World to name but a few. While Woodseats retail doesn’t offer the quirkiness of Nether Edge and Abbeydale Road or the upmarket feel of Ecclesall Road, you will find that the essentials are most definitely covered.

Woodseats is lively in the evenings and never short of a passing taxi should you need one. The highly regarded Blue Room Brasserie serves up posh nosh, while Kitos provides a cosy atmosphere and home cooked Italian food. Dilshad Tandoori Restaurant concocts excellent curries. If you fancy an evening tipple, Woodseats has no trendy bars, but pubs to suit all ages with The Abbey, the Chantrey Arms, the Big Tree and the Wetherspoons-owned Woodseats Palace. 
Graves Park, Sheffield’s largest park, is a short walk form Woodseats. It hosts the annual Sheffield Show and forms part of the Sheffield Round Walk. It includes lakes, woodland, an animal farm, a café and stunning views across the city.

Woodseats is one of the larger suburbs in the south of Sheffield, not far from Nether Edge and Millhouses. It lies either side of Chesterfield Road and down as far as Abbeydale Road. It’s very conveniently located near Graves Park (with a kids playground,) and has a load of supermarkets such as Tesco, Farm Foods, Netto, Iceland and Safeway. It lies on a main bus route into the city centre as well. This area is not far at all from Millhouses, where there’s an enormous business park with both Fitness First and Esporta gyms as well as a Sainsbury’s and a big Tesco.

You’ll never be short a pint in Woodseats because the pubs are all on the main road and there’s less than 100 yards between them. The Abbey, The Woodseats Palace, The Big Tree and The Woodseats are the main watering holes and have favourable reviews as being friendly and well established. They all offer outdoor drinking areas too. There are several fast food establishments, 3 fish & chips, 2 curry houses, 2 Italian restaurants, 2 Chinese Takeaways, 4 cafes, 3 pizza joints and 3 fried chicken establishments.

Other things in the area include pet shops, charity shops, craft and toy shops, real estate agents, a butcher’s shop and a couple of independent computer shops. There’s a reasonable Electrical and TV store if you want to boycott the big chains and a big furniture store at the bottom of Chesterfield Road.

The main local school is Woodseats Primary School on Chesterfield Road and is easily accessible by bus. Be careful attempting to drive this area during peak hours as it can get very hectic!

This is the area of Sheffield that has it all – and it’s no great challenge to escape from it all out to the Peak District for some peace and quiet on the weekend.
