Choose this site over Rushmere since the advertised price on website was cheaper, however on paying found it was 1 per person more, my only gripe. The camping fields are split into two, first one for electric hook ups and those that don't want camp fires and the second field which allows campfires, they have little stone circles on the ground into which to put your fire, field is slightly sloping but enough flat bits so you are not rolling around your tent at night. Toilet and shower block at start of first field, one shower and two toilets in female, one toilet and show in mens, we arrived just after a bank holiday weekend and it looks like they had an extra two portaloos for the weekend. Large area in camping field for games etc, Location is nice and quiet though it is near a quarry which starts blasting early, don't think its everyday though as didn't here it our first morning, handy for the Forest Of Dean.

This is a real get-away-from-it-all site. The owners are very laid back; there is no long list of rules, no time by which you must leave, no being told exactly where you must put your tent. And you can have a fire on the ground, with nets of wood and an honesty box to pay for them. The site is very pretty, surrounded by trees for that in-the-forest feel, and much effort has recently gone into hedge planting which will be beautiful when mature. The facilities are basic but have everything necessary and are always clean. There is an outdoor washing up sink with hot water, a couple of basins and flush loos, and a shower. These are currently in a porta-cabin, but the owners are waiting for planning permission for a permanent block. During our visit there was a cub/scout camp in the adjoining field - compliments to their leaders as they were very quite and all behaved impecably, and kept us entertained in the morning with a mass tea towel flicking match involving about 40 cubs and scouts. The surrounding area has much to offer, including walks in the beautiful Forest of Dean, Symonds Yat Rock, the enchanting Puzzlewood, and slightly further but well worth a visit is the stunningly beautiful Dewstow Gardens and Grottoes. If you want peace and tranquility, but are not looking for rows of gleaming toilet blocks and a whole bunch of rules, I cannot recommend Greenacres enough.

Nice site out of the way, due to the time of year we were the only people on site, showers and washing facility's very basic for men only one shower and one toilet combined. 12 for 2 people per night without hook up. Would recommend if you wanted to be out of the way, for one night only was fine for us.

Once again at Short notice we were able to arrive with ease.

Four families, Dads and little ones and we had the bliss and tranquillity of the beautiful Wye Valley countryside.

The children all enjoy having an open fire (is it camping otherwise?) and the adults maybe more so.

Perfect hosts, unobtrusive and friendly when you need them.

We will be back next year for sure.

We just stayed here for 2 nights as we only had time for a short break and had never visited the Forest of Dean area before.

There were just two of us and a dog (which was FOC). The price of 16 seemed about right for the motorhome plus EHU despite the basic toilet/shower block which is in a Portakabin. There is one shower in the ladies and two toilets - DH said the male side had one shower and one toilet but the way it was set up, if the shower was in use then you couldn't use the toilet as the whole side was locked.

Not much fun if you need the toilet!

The washing-up facility is outside in the open, joined onto the side of the shower/toilet block and as others have commented the 'hot' water isn't but hey it's free and no harm done in washing up in cold water occasionally.

The campsite is accessed from the main road up a single track road which is quite steep but fairly flat once you get up the top. You pass the owners' bungalow at the bottom when you come in and if there is no-one home they will come up and check you are settling in ok.

There is no dedicated play area but as the site is set to grass there is plenty of room for kids to be kids and not to be on top of each other as sometimes happens in busy periods.

The site is quiet and laid to grass once you get off the hardcore entrance. The first field has EHUs and a drinking water tap and then on through a fenced area for tents where several fire-pits are arranged for their use. Bags of kindling are available at the site entrance with an honesty box to pay for them.

While we were there several carloads of teenagers were dropped off by their parents (oh dear we thought. ) who set up 8 tents in the camping field behind us but the owner came over to us and said the teenagers had promised to behave and if we had any problems to let her know immediately and they would be told to go home. They were fine but it was good to know that the owner was prepared to do something if they weren't.

This is another site where there are several 'weekend' caravans on the site but we were the only people there on this occasion.

We visited several Forestry Commission sites in the area which were free to park in and access which can be a problem for a motorhome at times. We especially liked the New Fancy viewpoint (nr Parkends) and the Cyril Hart Aboretum (nr Coleford). Monmouth isn't too far away and neither is Abergavenny.

Again the road into Coleford from the campsite doesn't have pavements so probably safest to use in daytime and if you like a long walk! Coleford was a lovely little town which had a good mix of shops and parking was no problem.

A lovely little campsite, Very peaceful, the only noise we heard were the lambs from the field next door! Even though it was the Easter weekend and busy, not that it felt it. It is close to many of the local attractions; Clearwell caves, Puzzlewood to name but 2 and it less than a 5 min drive or 15 min walk away from Coleford for takeways, pubs and shops for stocking up.

The facilities are basic but kept clean, and the shower you were able to control the temperature, which meant showering the kids was easy no 'it is too hot mummy'. Oh and the kids loved the rope swing and the marshmallows from the campfires.

A fantastic find.
