2022 has been an exciting year for us at Wallops Wood with three new holiday houses opening in our woodland copse at Grenville

These houses have been built to the highest standards offering guests luxurious comfort and space in a peaceful setting. Two of the houses can accommodate up to 10 people, the other up to 6, perfect for family gatherings and get togethers for birthdays and celebrations. One or more houses can also be booked together for larger get-togethers.

Portuguese Laurel is the smaller of the woodland houses, accommodating up to 6 and built on one level, perfect for accessible guests, although all three of our houses are accessible.

All of our holiday accommodation is perfect for families, gatherings, and is dog friendly. Most of our holiday houses and cottages are accessible accommodation which is ideal for multi-generational get-togethers and celebrations!

Guests staying at Grenville have use of the facilities at our Wallops Wood Cottages site where there is a games room, and a swimming pool complex.

Awards

We’ve earned many awards over the last few years and this year we were awarded a TripAdvisor Travellers Choice award for the sixth year running! The Travellers’ Choice award was established in 2002, and is the highest honour TripAdvisor can bestow. Based on millions of reviews and opinions from travellers from around the world, this annual award recognises the very best tourism establishments in terms of service, quality, customer satisfaction and more, across a range of categories.

Other recent awards include Best Self Catering Accommodation in the South Gold 2020, Accessible and Inclusive Tourism Gold 2020 and Best National Self Catering Silver 2020 (we won’t rest until we achieve Gold). In 2021, 45% of bookings were by returning guests and 15% returned multiple times in the year, so we must be doing something right!

Eco Credentials

As an accommodation provider in a National Park, commitment to sustainability is paramount without compromising on the quality of accommodation and service. In 2020 we were awarded a Green Tourism Gold Award for environmental and sustainable practices.

Some of our practices include:

  • In the summer months the solar panels at the Wallops Wood Cottages site power the wood chip boiler which in turn heats the cottages, indoor pool and games room.
  • Installation of solar panels on the roof of the north facing cottages to power all the cottages, the indoor swimming pool complex, the games / event room and our laundry facilities.
  • Water is supplied by our borehole which is fed by the local aquifer. The drawn water is UV treated to ensure our water is crystal clear and tastes delicious.
  • Rainwater is harvested from the roof, into a soakaway which feeds back to the aquifer.
  • An electric charging point for two vehicles has been installed in Wallops Wood Cottages guest car park.
