Customer Feedback

We are always delighted to hear that people have enjoyed their stay and we'd like to share their opinions with you...

"I just wanted to write to you all and say thankyou for facilitating a lovely weekend catch up for us old friends and the group of kids! It is a perfect site, really well maintained and with just the right amount of activities and simple touches that made our lives so much easier. I particularly thought the children's seats in the toilets was a very thoughtful touch.
Thankyou for a wonderful place to stay and would love to come back." (Jess Lester, June 2018)

"Thankyou so much for letting us come, we all enjoyed it and will be recommending you to everyone." (Sam Kemp - May 2018)

The facilities and the warm welcome we received was fantastic and I can not fault our stay, which is so important when it's a two week holiday! We will be quite happy to come and stay again and in the meantime recommend that others visit too."  (Caz Hannan, Paul, Oliver, Alfie, Tony, Maria and Louise - Aug 2017)

Wanted to write a review about this place as we loved it so much but the previous reviewer has pretty much summed it up. So ditto!

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!


Excellent, family-friendly camp site (no caravans) in beautiful countryside. Loads of play space for traditional family time, with play equipment and play houses for younger children. Spotless shower & WC block, free use of fridges and very helpful owners. Lots to see and do nearby - in short, brilliant!

"Just back from another lovely trip to Greenacres. Even though it was bank hol, it was not hellish busy as, unlike everywhere else, it doesn't cram more people in to every patch of grass!.  All the pitches are on the edge of the field leaving the middle for playing, bike riding etc. Facilities fine, I only had a small wait for showers, even when the site was full and it was all cleaned regularly. They had the 'Lazy daisy' crew there whilst we stayed doing hair wraps and face paints and crafts which was great (small fee) and they had a lovely big bell tent to relax in whilst your children were being painted. Love this site and would highly recommend it."

Reviewer: Jfcamping (August 2012)

"Green Acres was superb and we could not have asked for a better site. The owners are friendly and very helpful and the site is fantastic. The main field is huge with only 40 good sized pitches and everyone is there for the same reason (to let kids enjoy themselves). We originally booked for 3 nights but ended extending this for another 2 nights. You need to drive to go to the main shops but the village shops visits every morning and evening (with the best steaks I have tasted)."

Reviewer: Tony100la

"This was our second visit to this great little site, and won't be our last. Big field, big pitches, great location, and the owners Duncan and Mary are lovely. If you have young children you must try this site, plenty of room for them to run around and get exhausted!.The fridges and freezers are free to use and there is a microwave for heating and sterilizing baby's bottles. Another great thing is that unlike other sites the prices do not increase for the summer holidays so its brilliant value for money too."

"Cannot recommend this site enough, brilliant had an excellent stay.The site is good for children plenty of swings,slides etc. Excellent value for money. Showers and Toilets are spotless cleaned and polished everyday."

Reviewer: Lmorgans April 2011  Unit:  Campervan 

"I cannot fault the way that it is operated at all. It is well organised and has a few extra things which you are surprised are there, and then add to your experience and stay. We loved the bike hire - its so flat around this site, and quiet lanes, we took advantage of this service and enjoyed a lovely afternoon 'out & about'. The site is kept immaculate. Would definitely return to this site and definitely recommend it to my best friend!"

Reviewer: Mrsgibbo76 April 2011  Unit:  Tent 

"We cannot recommend this site enough for families. The tents are situated around a spacious field. Pitches are very generous. Along one side is a play area visible from the surrounding tents. Our children (5 and 8) could play 'independently' while we watched from afar. There is an area with fridges and freezers for communal use which is a fab addition. Duncan, Mary and their daughter are all so welcoming and will help with anything. It is a drive to Glastonbury (we visited the Abbey and climbed the Tor), Street (we bought new sleeping bags at the outlet village), Shepton Mallet (Kilver Court Gardens is an oasis) and Wells (beautiful cathedral and Bishop's Palace). As a mum, I couldn't have asked for more from a simple, spacious, safe site with no clubs or loud music or gimmicks."

Reviewer: Mel.smith331 (1) : May 2010 Unit: Tent 

"We simply love this site. It is so peaceful and relaxing. We've been twice, on the first May bank holiday this year and last. Our three children (aged 2,4 and 6 yrs) think it's wonderful. The pitches are huge and would accommodate any size tent easily and still feel spacious. Loads of room for car, tent, tables, chairs and toys. No fires allowed but off the ground BBQ's are so we sat round the BBQ in the evening - it was chilly! We didn't mind the basic facilities - there are spotless loos, sinks, showers and plenty of piping hot water. Layout of this site is perfect with a large field, tents around the outside, grass play area in the middle and smaller children's play area opposite the tents so you can keep an eye on them playing whilst sitting in comfort! There are 2 play houses which the children practically lived in. 
There is a lovely feeling about Greenacres - I think that's down to the lovely owners. Once you have paid for your pitch, that's it; free showers, free fridge and freezer space, books to borrow and loads of information about local places to visit. It's fab. I'd recommend it to anyone especially if you have young children."
