About Chris Wood

I have known this beautiful part of West Dorset since 1976 when my parents took me on holiday here, that was 40 years ago and I have never got tired of the views, the walks, the atmosphere and the relaxation.

Like my guests, I have stayed in many self catering properties and I have made sure that this one truly creates a home from home. I am very particular about maintaining very high standards.

I want my guests to feel as though they are the first ones to stay here.

Chris Wood purchased this barn in 2016

This converted barn, which is well equipped and in very good decorative order, is ideal for a couple wanting a quiet time together. It has a decent sized garden with picnic tables and easy foot access to Morcombelake Village via a gate at the back of the garden. It is also well placed for visits to Lyme Regis, Charmouth and further afield to places such as Weymouth and Seaton.

Excellent self catering accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Greenwood is spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and well designed accommodation. There is an attention to detail that is rare to find. We both loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you so much.
