Greenacres wins AA award

Greenacres Wins Top AA Award












We are delighted to announce that Greenacres Camping has been chosen as the AA Small Campsite of the Year 2014 and also won an AA Gold Pennant for the quality of the facilities and welcome on offer.

The quality score awarded - 96% - was the highest in the UK for any small site. Both awards were introduced this year, so we are especially proud to be the the very first winners. 

The AA Inspector described Greenacres as "An immaculately maintained site peacefully set within sight of Glastonbury Tor. Mainly family orientated with many thoughtful extra facilities provided, and there is plenty of space for children to play games in a very safe environment. There is even a 'glow worm safari' at certain times of the year. Facilities are exceptionally clean.".

Campsites are visited by one of the AA’s qualified Campsite Inspectors, who look at touring pitches, facilities and hospitality before grading the site from one to five Pennants. Awards are made to sites in recognition of exceptionally high standards, service and presentation. To shortlist a potential award winner the inspector looks at recent improvements and innovations that make the park stand out from the crowd, as well looking at the overall quality of the park.  For 2014 the AA has introduced Gold Pennants to identify the top quality parks that score 90% and above within the two to five Pennant ratings. 

The AA Caravan and Camping Guide 2014 was published on 01-February. Now in its 46th year, the guide has details of over 900 fully inspected and independently graded camping parks across England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
