Behind the Scenes at Wallops Wood

Katherine’s family have farmed here since 1938, and behind the scenes, diversified the farm estate into offices and industrial units. Companies who have their base on the estate include Bowman Ales, who brew their beers here!

Wallops Wood Cottages

Farm barns on the site of the Old Hambledon Racecourse were converted to holiday cottages and the swimming pool complex between 2014 and 2018. Each cottage at Wallops Wood Cottages has been named after a Grand National Winner, as a nod to the history of the site and the racecourse.

The Luxury Holiday Houses, Grenville at Wallops Wood

We opened Grenville at Wallops Wood in 2022. Located on this leafy woodland site, a mile from Wallops Wood Cottages, are three beautiful holiday houses. The houses are dog friendly and accessible accommodation with wetrooms, and have access to the indoor heated pool, jacuzzi with accessible hoist, sauna and steam room at Wallops Wood Cottages.

Behind the scenes, we designed the holiday accommodation at both sites to have a home-from-home atmosphere. The emphasis is on ‘access for all’ irrespective of age or physical ability.

Our Award-winning Holiday Accommodation

Wallops Wood has won several awards and we are proud to have achieved so much in such a short time. In 2018, we won Dog Friendly Business of the Year. We won both Access and Inclusivity Tourism Gold, and National Self Catering Accommodation of the Year Silver, in 2020. For the past seven consecutive years, we have won Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice award.
