"Fantastic place for families – so much to do onsite!…"
On arriving here, this is what eldest child said: 'I think I'm in a dream mummy, but I keep pinching myself and I'm awake'. It sounds a bit cheesy written down, but the comment just about sums up our feelings about our weekend at Greenwood Grange. It's got EVERYTHING! Most of the cottages are set around a lovely courtyard. The houses are comfortable, clean and neat and worked on a beige/white palette, but not so designer-perfect that you're afraid the children will spoil something.
If you bring enough food, you could easily stay on site the whole weekend as there's plenty to do. The tennis courts are well kept and there's a play area to one side with a trampoline, play yurt, swing and other sit-ons. The indoor swimming pool is really lovely and warm, so it's perfect for children and even on a busy weekend we had it to ourselves each time we went. There's also a large indoor games room with table tennis, pool and bar billiards and lots of toys for smaller children in an adjoining room.
You can walk around the gardens, say hello to the Shetland ponies, take a walk in Thorncombe Woods (just outside the main gate) or take the footpath from the top of the hill along a bridlepath.
There are fresh eggs from the chickens and guests can borrow dvds and help themselves to produce from the vegetable patch. We made a delicious rhubarb crumble and picked some chard to go with some omelettes.
We came back having had lots of family fun but also feeling really relaxed. We'll definitely go again.Read moreLess
