Greenacres Campsite Welcomes New Owners and awarded three pennants Gold Award by the AA

Greenacres Camping assured of a bright future with Alan and Beverley Pryce

In June 2021 Greenacres Camping changed hands to Alan and Beverley Pryce who have moved here from Hampshire.

Greenacres has been an established and successful campsite since the 1970’s. Throughout this time it has only had three owners and the focus has always remained on the campsite being family friendly and providing a quiet and peaceful environment.

Alan said, “We love this area, and when we saw the campsite, we immediately thought that this was a fantastic place and what an opportunity it offered us.”

The campsite is tucked away in a corner of North Wootton with a very large quiet field – and, equally important – a very level field.  Play facilities for small children are available, with an Information Hut with fridges/freezers to share for the campers. Bike hire is also available providing adults, children’s and trailer bikes.

Alan and Beverley have started to make new additions to the site. Recently a local craftsman made five fairy doors which have been hidden round the site, and they have added a large OS map for visitors to look at.

Alan says “We are very pleased to announce that following our recent review by the AA, we have been upgraded from two to three pennants and have retained our Gold Award for quality, with an increased score of 90%.

As a small campsite we are thrilled that the high standard of the campsite has continued to be recognised by this national accreditation.”

Directions to Greenacres during Glastonbury Festival

 

Driving to Greenacres during the Glastonbury Festival period

Traffic restrictions will be in force during the Festival, aimed at improving the flow of traffic in and around the area. For this reason the following instructions should be followed when arriving at Greenacres during the period 23-26 June.
This will be especially important on the busiest day for traffic - Tuesday 22nd June.

** Please DO NOT just follow your satnav. It will definitely lead you to difficulties! **

All guests should approach Greenacres from the A39 Wells <-> Glastonbury road (to the west of the site) and NOT from the A361.
(The A361 runs directly past the Glastonbury festival site and is therefore guaranteed to be heavily congested).

Turn off the A39 at Brownes Garden Centre, approx ½ mile south of Wells. There may be signs at the junction saying "No Access To Glastonbury Festival" - ignore them. 

Follow the signposted route past Launcherley and on to North Wootton village. On reaching North Wootton TAKE CARE! You will reach a T-junction at the bottom of Middles Lane. Other Festival traffic may turn LEFT at this junction, but you need to turn RIGHT towards Greenacres. After turning right, follow along the lane until you reach Greenacres in about 0.6 miles.

Any Stewards should be aware of Greenacres guests, so if challenged, please politely tell them your destination.
Most stewards on duty are our villager neighbours, working as charity volunteers.

 
Please re-visit this page a few days before the Festival, by which time we will know the details of this year's Festival Traffic Plan.
