Gothic grotto in the woodland plantation to the rear of Spring Gardens Terrace. The terrace was built from 1839 for William Rees solicitor, and Rees himself owned Nos 8-8A to which this summerhouse belonged and presumably the valley behind, which has a small brick summerhouse at the top of the right bank (behind No 85 City Road).
Picturesque grotto-style summer-house of rubble stone set into a man-made mound in a planted woodland. Gothic pointed arched E front opening with flanking quadrant walls that curve outwards and slope downwards; the arch is stepped in with alternate tufa and projecting voussoirs, but at the top the outer orders of the arch have partly fallen away.
The arch opens into a stone-vaulted recess with semicircular back wall.
Included for group value with Spring Gardens as an historic garden structure of special interest.
