The award-winning Greenwood Grange in Higher Bockhampton could see up to fourteen new holiday cottages.

The planning application to Dorset Council also involves the demolition of an existing barn as well as a new reception building and changes to access and parking areas.

Most of the cottages will be built on the site of the existing barn and tennis courts, with 33 new parking spaces created nearby.

The planning application is open for comment until 17th September.
