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!

Hinderclay Church

This is Hinderclay church, where services are held at least twice a month. You can find out more at this address

The church has amazing modern stained glass windows which are worth a visit all for themselves! You can find the bell ringers there most Mondays, sounding out a tune (do you call it that in bell ringing??) and they are always looking for new recruits – perhaps you are a bell ringer and you want to keep your hand in even when you are on holiday? We have an amazing flower festival in June each year where the flower fairies (sorry, villagers!) follow a theme to design their flower arrangements around. This year it was favourite tunes and there were a huge variety of songs and interpretations! Included were some beautiful old pictures of school classes, village people from long ago and more recently and some brilliant wedding pictures!

The church yard is still in use for burials but if you are interested in grave stones and who lies beneath, you can find some really historical ones in this church yard. Come along for a visit, the church is open daily for you to look round, sit quietly or enjoy the time spent with God.
