Home from Home
We all look forward to visiting family and friends, especially if distance means we don’t see them very often. But not every home has enough room for lots of guests and not every guest wants to get completely immersed in the rough and tumble of everyday family life.
In these instances Greenwood Grange is the perfect haven. Quite a few of our guests are regular visitors who stay with us when they are visiting family and friends in the area and they tell us they really appreciate the home from home feel of our properties.
Grandparents coming to Dorset to visit their children and grandchildren often choose to stay in our small but perfectly formed Abbotsea Cottage. With a separate double bedroom, plenty of storage and a fully fitted kitchen, it is the perfect relaxing hideaway after a busy day with the grandchildren.
Larger families visiting Dorset-based grandparents prefer one of our two or three bedroom cottages such as Melchester or Casterbridge. As with Abbotsea, these cottages all have plenty of room for all the family and a kitchen that is ideal for a family breakfast before heading out for the day or even to host a family dinner for everyone in the evening.
Some of our cottages are dog friendly so everyone can come along to the family reunion.
If you have family already living in the area, you’ll know that Greenwood Grange is situated in the middle of some beautiful countryside. Once you’re here, there’s a wealth of things to do with the family, even if it’s as simple as day on the beach at Weymouth or some shopping in Dorchester. Some family members might be too young to appreciate the works of Thomas Hardy but they’ll still love his cottage – what could be more appropriate than to visit a family home during a family reunion?!
As we’re situated just off the A35 and with good links to both the South East and the West Country, both getting here and getting around whilst you’re here is easy.
So if you’re planning a trip to Dorset to visit family, but you are slightly daunted by the idea of fighting for the bathroom or never being able to get away from noisy children, follow the example of many of our regular guests and stay with us instead. You’ll be glad you did!
