Four seasons at Greenacre Lodge

Our holiday cottage is the most wonderful place to stay – and that’s not just my opinion, take a look at our reviews! Each season of the year is just as beautiful. Our garden isn’t finely manicured but is a happy mix of flowers, trees, people, toys and wildlife! Spring brings daffodils in abundance and the bird song is amazing! The Lodge garden is private and a real sun trap for most of the day in summer. Apples, pears, plums, cobnuts, figs and quince all ripen in the sun whilst blackberries are abundant in the garden hedgerows as Autumn draws in. Last winter, we had exciting falls of snow and living in a village at the top of a hill, we had a few days when we couldn’t get out of the village – total peace! Come and experience the joys of Greenacre Lodge in 2019, we are looking forward to meeting you!

Summer days!

Summer Days

Make the most of the long, summer evenings watching the bats, enjoying the stars, sipping a cold white wine at Greenacre Lodge. The decking is just waiting for you! Take a soft, fluffy blanket out and curl up on our comfy chairs with a book or some music Рthere is nothing more relaxing than being at Greenacre Lodge on a warm summer evening. Book now to make sure you get one of the last remaining 4 weeks available before September!

Looking forward to a busy year

Our first guests of 2018 arrive on Friday and we have a busy year after that. There are a few weeks available during the year but don’t leave it too late to book – once people have stayed here, they almost always book again!

Our Lodge needs you!

Lodge kitchen

Our beautiful Lodge needs you to make it come alive – we have very limited availability left during June and August although you might be lucky with a last minute week so take a look and make us an offer! There is plenty of space to enjoy the Autumn with us though; the local areas is beautiful at this time of year, with very low rainfall and amazing walks, cycling and rivers to enjoy. Equally, we have easy access to Cambridge, Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich for sightseeing and shopping. The Christmas market in Bury St Edmunds is amazing and we will offer a taxi service for you so you don’t even have to worry about parking! Hurry though, the weeks will go very quickly and you don’t want to miss out!

Sunny Suffolk

What a beautiful place Suffolk is! Especially in the hot summer sun that we are having at the moment. Today we spent an enjoyable day in the seafront in Lowestoft- which has been under development for a while and now it’s a lovely place to while away the hours. Not to mention the gorgeous sandy beach and the very nice eateries that have sprung up. We liked the look of RockSalt, a (mainly) fish restaurant – all fresh and local – and Shish, a smart looking Meze restaurant. We didn’t eat but I noted them for another day!! We took my mum who thoroughly enjoyed her day!

October half term

If you want a cheeky break in the October half term holiday, why not check out Greenacre Lodge? The price comes down in time for the school holiday and you will find everything you need to have a fantastic week away. There is plenty to do around Hinderclay so you and the children will never be bored. Take a look at our availability page and contact us direct to book. 

It’s summer!

Everything is growing now at Greenacre Lodge – strawberries are ripening, gooseberries are getting bigger, the herb bed is overflowing and the chicks are double the size they were two weeks ago! The veg patch is looking great and the figs are big and juicy this year – the first year we’ve got the pruning right maybe! Our plum and greengage trees were pruned hard this spring and so far don’t show any signs of fruiting but the apples and cherries are doing well. 

And from the vegetable patch…

…we bring you ongoing curly kale, leeks, carrots, beetroot and sprouts.  

  

  

 The big flower bed is coloured with tones of the earth just to remind us of where we have come from but it won’t be long till the bulbs are giving us Spring colour!
