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!
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 – there 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!
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.
I shared my hare painting with you at various stages and now I’m starting on a fox picture. Both these paintings are focusing on the eyes of the animal – it is the eyes that can make the painting look real so they make a fascinating thing to study as I paint. The fox is at the very first stage where I put in the basic shading of the fur but you can already see how important the eyes will be to make the painting seem alive. Watch this space for the various stages of painting!
We live in a wonderful, peaceful village in north Suffolk, situated just at the start of the Waveney Valley. We are 45 minutes from both Norwich and Cambridge if you fancy shopping or sightseeing. A day trip to London will take just an hour and a half from Diss station. Locally, you can walk, fish, birdwatch, eat, play – there’s so much to do that a week’s holiday will never be long enough! And if it’s just peace and quiet you want, just relax on the decking in your own private garden, where most of the time, all you will be able to hear is birdsong! Irresistible!
