The standard of this property is simply spectacular! Sleeping 12, Henchard is brilliant for friends, groups of families or a special occasion.

In many respects, Henchard is the jewel in the crown of the Greenwood Grange Cottages collection, that’s tailored to holidaymakers of all kinds. Take for instance the open-plan living/dining room. With its vaulted ceiling, chunky wooden beams, and luxurious furniture positioned around the brick inglenook fireplace, it’s clear that this social space was designed with a keen eye for style and comfort. From the patio outside, you can enjoy lush green views, work on your tan and lose yourself in a good book. And for the fair-skinned, an ice-cold cocktail under the parasol can be just the ticket. Tempting, is it not?

The whole property exudes a warm and welcoming air regardless of the time of year. Suited for all holidaymakers, this magical dwelling sleeps up to 12 people, and for those particularly large get-togethers with old friends, bookings with other properties in Greenwood Grange can be arranged. Children and adults alike are sure to be kept busy in the games room, on-site sauna, indoor pool and en-tous-cas tennis courts.

A saunter round the site where celebrated novelist Thomas Hardy spent most of his childhood is a must for literary enthusiasts, and when you feel like finding out what else Dorset has to offer, there’s a wealth of attractions nearby. To the north is the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the south are the Heritage Coasts West Dorset and Purbeck. There are a number of sleepy villages and bustling market towns nearby, and if it’s some Downton-esque romance you’re after, there’s the National Trust-owned stately home Forde Abbey and Gardens, Kingston Lacy and Brownsea Island is a haven for native wildlife. Head to Durdle Door to see one of the UK’s most iconic geological marvels.

    Lovely base for a large family gathering for a special occasion. Very spacious and plenty to play with for small children as well as the pool and games room for older kids.
