Introducing Grenville at Wallops Wood

Over the last few years we’ve been working away on building three new houses in a woodland copse, called Grenville. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the Wallops Wood estate, Grenville includes Scots Pine, Sicilian Lemon and Portuguese Laurel. These three woodland houses are very special: each is detached, peaceful, spacious, cosy and offers privacy and seclusion. Scots Pine and Sicilian Lemon are built on two storeys and Portuguese Laurel is ground floor only. All are accessible and dog friendly. We’re excited to welcome guests to these wonderful houses; availability calendars are open now and throughout 2023!

Scots Pine

Scots Pine was the first of our woodland houses to open in July. Perfect for family gatherings and get togethers with friends, it is a five double/twin bedroomed house over two floors with an open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Downstairs are two accessible bedrooms with wet rooms and a balcony. The three upstairs bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and also have a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the views of the trees. The upstairs TV lounge is a perfect place to relax in the evenings. Downstairs is a large decking area, where you can enjoy sitting outside along with a lawned garden and hot tub. The house is cosy and warm in the colder months with underfloor heating and a wood burner. The house is dog friendly so your beloved pooch can enjoy a holiday too!

Sicilian Lemon

Also perfect for family gatherings is Sicilian Lemon. Like Scots Pine, this house has five bedrooms sleeping ten people on two floors. With a similar layout to Scots Pine, it’s a wonderful place to gather friends and family together to stay in a peaceful setting, but large enough for everyone to have their own space and privacy. Both Scots Pine and Sicilian Lemon are accessible, meaning gatherings can include family members from the youngest to the oldest! Find out more about Sicilian Lemon and view the floor plan.

The smallest of the houses in Grenville, Portuguese Laurel sleeps six in three bedrooms. Although smaller than Sicilian Lemon & Scots Pine, Portuguese Laurel is still very spacious, warm and cosy. It has accessible ground floor accommodation so all family members can be included and is also dog friendly for your favourite pooch! The accommodation includes three en-suite bedrooms (one with an enormous accessible wet room) and patio doors to private balconies. The kitchen, dining and sitting area are open plan with a wood burner and underfloor heating to keep you cosy in the winter months. There is a large decking area to enjoy al fresco meals and the garden is lawned with a hot tub. Find out more about Portuguese Laurel and view the floor plan.

The Local Area

There’s plenty to do out and about near Wallops Wood. The historic cities of Winchester and Portsmouth provide plenty to do for a day out and Chichester is also well worth a visit. Family friendly activities include Marwell Zoo, Paultons Park, The Watercress Line and Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium.

If you like the great outdoors, the South Downs is a wonderful place for walks and cycling. Several laminated walks are included within the guest information folder within the property. Walks begin at our Wallops Wood Cottages site, therefore 15 minutes needs to be added to the walk times for guests starting out from our Grenville holiday houses. You can choose from shorter walks or longer routes, perfect for dog walks. A stop off at one of the local pubs can also be included in your walk.

The Walks can be downloaded from our website here.
