Review of Greenacres Camping

Aug 15, 2013, by dc66

There may have been better pitches, but we thought ours was perfect! Everyone pitches around the edge of the field, and we had space for our 10 man tent and car, with room to spare. There also was sufficient shelter from the hedge and canopy of trees that we could still cook outside on the rainy days. We weren't lucky enough to hire a fire-pit, but it was lovely to see the fires dotted around the site. Both our boys made friends on the first day, and we sat and contentedly watched them play in the centre of the field, and we were delighted when at evening-time, the owners came across to the field and asked "anyone for rounders?" Whether they were playing ball games in the centre of the field, or using the play area, we could have eyes on them. 

We only left the site on one day, to visit Glastonbury Abbey, but were perfectly content with staying put the rest of the time. There is a mobile shop that drives round the field morning and evening, and the onsite shop sells wood, ice creams and essentials. The owners are hard-working, constantly seen attending to matters on site, but always with a friendly nod and "hello" to whichever camper passes their path. The showers are definitely on the small side, but we managed. Importantly, they - along with the toilets - are clean. 

Although the rules ask for quiet between 11pm - 7am, we found the site quietened down around half nine / ten o'clock. This site is perfect for an easy going, family camping break. We will certainly return - I suppose that's the best recommendation really!
