Woodside is a hamlet in Berkshire, England, within the civil parishes of Winkfield and Sunninghill and Ascot in the boroughs of Bracknell Forest and Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

The settlement lies near to the A332 road and is approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north-east of Ascot Racecourse and largely surrounded by Windsor Great Park. In the early Twentieth Century the south of the hamlet was the site of the Ascot Brick Works. Formerly there were two villages of Woodend with its accompanying big country house (no more) at the southern end in the Parish of Ascot and Sunninghill and Woodside at the northern end in the Parish of Winkfield. Nowadays the name Woodend has all but disappeared and Woodside is applied to the whole village. The Parish and Borough boundaries still run through the middle of the village and right through the centre of the Duke of Edinburgh public house.
