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!

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!

2017 bookings

We are excited at the amount of bookings we have taken in our first year and you only have just a few weeks left of the Autumn to experience the fantastic Greenacre Lodge! Book quickly because the weeks are going fast. One of our guests said this week that ‘the whole place is perfect!’ To celebrate our first year of Greenacre Lodge, we’ve decided to let you book 2017 holidays at 2016 prices for a few more weeks so take up the offer before it’s too late!! We look forward to meeting you very soon!

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. 

Painter?

A few weeks ago, I shared a half finished painting of a hare with you all. Greenacre Lodge is an inspiring place for painters and photographers, surrounded as it is with beautiful countryside, wildlife of all sorts and rural lifestyles. Yesterday I finished the hare and made a start on a fox – I’m trying to focus on the look in the eyes of the animals! As a painting beginner, I’m never satisfied with the end result but always hoping each one will be better than the last!
