Our review of Greenwood Grange

ACCOMMODATION AND PRICES

Greenwood Grange comprises a selection of seventeen tastefully converted brick, stone and slate former farm buildings which now provide luxury self-catering accommodation. The majority of the cottages are family sized and sleep between four and six people, with three larger properties sleeping eight (x2) and twelve people – perfect for a larger family gathering. A cottage for two adults and two children during the summer peak period costs around £1300 per week, which we think represents great value (especially when you consider the many family friendly features available on site!). Out of season a week’s stay for four can be obtained for as little as £550/week and short breaks are also available. Four bed ‘Henchard’ – which sleeps up to twelve – costs around £3100 for a week in high season.

CHILD FRIENDLY HOLIDAY FEATURES

Greenwood Grange has a wide variety of facilities for children of all ages to enjoy. There’s plenty of safe open space for the kids to run around in including nature trails and an activity field with its very own play yurt. There are also tennis courts, badminton, croquet and boules, with all the necessary equipment supplied, and an outdoor play area with swings and a giant trampoline. Inside, there’s a well-equipped games room with billiards, pool, table tennis, table football, a games console and a TV with Freeview. Children will also doubtless enjoy the delightful 32ft x 16ft indoor swimming pool. The complex also has several regular animal visitors including deer, badgers and hedgehogs, in addition to the resident cat, free range chickens and bee hive! Children will also enjoy the weekly gardening club which runs during school holidays and gives little ones the chance to find out what’s growing in the kitchen garden.

PARENT FRIENDLY HOLIDAY FEATURES

Mums and dads looking for the opportunity to relax on holiday will enjoy the coin-operated sauna which accompanies the swimming pool complex and may wish to take advantage of the availability of CRB-registered babysitters to get out for a meal or drink! The nearest pub is only a five minute drive away. You’ll also benefit from free WiFi available throughout the site, and family pets are welcome in certain cottages for an additional £25 surcharge. All the usual baby and toddler equipment (travel cots, high chairs, baby gates, baby baths, night lights) is available free of charge.

IN SUMMARY…

Greenwood Grange seems to have found the perfect balance of luxury self catering accommodation and family friendly facilities, and all at a great price too. We can’t wait to visit ourselves!
