Date of Visit: April 2014 Unit:  Trailer Tent Rating:
Reviewer: Beckyw 2 reviews from this member

We have just returned from a long weekend at Greenacres to test out our new trailer tent.

There is a large sign on the road locating the campsite. We had read that if there was no answer at the bungalow then to carry on driving up to the field and pitch up, which is what we did. There are no marked pitches so we located a spare EHU point & pitched in front of that. The field is slightly sloping although there are some flatter pitches and another field without EHU.

The facilities as we expected are very basic, but they were clean. There are 2 portaloos & a portacabin with separate M & F facilities. The female side had 2 toilets, 1 sink, 1 shower with a bench for clothes & a couple of hooks on the back of the door. There was also an area with a large shelf & mirror. The shelf would be big enough to change a baby. There was paper towel for drying hands. The shower was hot. The men's side only had one room with a toilet, sink & shower.

Outside there was a sink for washing up but it wasn't under cover and the water was never even warm let alone hot. In fact we filled our washing up bowl from the shower one night as that was the only hot water and took it back to our tent to wash up in the warm & dry.

There is plenty of room for children to run around & a swing up in the trees to play on. Across the fields, a couple of minutes walk away is a recreation field with goal posts for a kick around.

The owners are very friendly and we saw them around the campsite a few times.

Coleford is a short drive & has a couple of supermarkets & a small DIY shop that sells small gas bottles for camping lights. Christchurch has a garage that sells camping gas bottles for cookers.

We visited the Dean Heritage Centre and did The Room On The Broom Trail which is superb for small children. The museum has some interesting local historical information, a few animals, and during the summer months charcoal making demonstrations. Out in the car park you can see & talk to the guys who made the chainsaw sculptures for the trail. We also visited Symonds Yat and followed the suggested Woodland Walk. We had 6 yr & 8 yr olds with us & it took us the 3 hours that it said, including a short stop at the view point, taking time to pick up the usual 300+ sticks & pine cones, playing a few games & stopping for drinks & snacks on the way. The walk down to the bottom is steep but the children enjoyed watching the rope ferry across the river.

This was our 4th visit to this site and as always we had a great time. My ten year old son says this is his favourite site as he can run around playing football and there are a couple of tree swings to play on! Although the facilities are basic they are always spotlessly clean and there is always plenty of loo roll, liquid soap and paper towels. The owners of the site are very helpful and friendly. It's a lovely walk through the fields into Coleford where there are plenty of pubs, a couple of supermarkets, a health food shop, a tapas bar, a cinema and plenty of takeaways. We are already planning our next break here.

Just spent a couple of nights here, 2 adults and 2 dogs. Peaceful small site tucked away. Basic facilities (which we expected)but clean and tidy. Friendly owners. Recycle bins provided. Access to public footpath so you can walk to Coleford where there are a few shops and takeaways etc. Forest walks are superb, but as mentioned, take a map! We used the phone GPS. Walked to Symonds Yat Rock, then down to the river for a pub stop. We returned along the river and made our way to Staunton, where unfortunately the White Horse, which serves good food, was shut on a Monday! We then made our way back to the site. We came across wild boar and deer, and during the evening we had bats flying around us. The owners sell tubs of logs for camp fires (money in an honesty box) All in all a lovely relaxing stay in touch with nature little site.

We didn't have children with us but lovely area for running around etc and close to many attractions.

We booked for a weekend here with 2 family tents as we wanted to try somewhere in a different location and this site seemed to tick all of the boxes.

We sent emails and left messages prior to our stay to ensure the pitch was booked.

On the Bank Holiday weekend the weather was very cold but as it was dry and we had booked for electric hookup we proceeded and drove from Swansea to stay at this site.

When we arrived there was no-one at the house but we took some numbers as instructed on the notes left on the door and we set up our tents.

One of the kids went to the shower block and came back stating it was locked.

We called 3 mobile numbers but no immediate reply so we left messages.

About half an hour later we had a visit from someone who had been asked to keep an eye on the site as its owners had gone on Holiday to Florida??

This was early evening and we had to stay over at that point, it was too late to pack back up and return home. The guy managed to unlock the mens toilet and isolated cold water only and a bucket to flush the toilet.

The following morning other residents on the site were busy trying to fix the plumbing issue which was due to frozen pipes a few days prior so we decided to see if this was resolved before deciding if we should head home.

As they managed to get the water back on and there was hot water, we decided to stay and were there 2 more nights. We realised if we had at that point packed up and gone home our weekend would have been well and truly ruined.

Facilities were basic but fair and comfortable, we left payment for what we felt was fair (we stayed 3 night but paid for two due to the first nights inconvenience) and left the monies with one of the permanent residents with a note for the owners however we have not since heard from the site owners so we are disappointed with the lack of communication.

We felt it was a little presumptuous that we would not attend due to the weather that week and that the owners had left to go on Holiday themselves days before this without leaving instructions and notifying the carer that we were booked in.

All in all we simply felt a bit abandoned and it's left a bad taste I'm sorry to say.

I do not like leaving bad feedback but UK campsites insisted I leave a second site review and this was the only other site I have visited this year.

Just spent bank holiday weekend at Greenacres, our first camping trip on UK soil since buying our camper and this place was just perfect.

It has such a laid back and friendly feel, we had a lovely open fire and BBQ. They even provided the fire wood for a small charge which you just pop In the honesty box.

There are two showers and a couple of toilets all completely immaculate and an adequate amount for the size of this site.

Plenty of room for everyone and flat ground.

Locally there is a coop and tesco express a few minute drive from the site for supplies. And heaps of local attractions, we spent Sunday afternoon at Puzzlewood, which was good fun.

Loved our weekend of making Smores, eating, drinking and getting away from it all at this Gloucestershire getaway!

A tricky site to locate unless you have satnav! Once found, we had a free hand in where we pitched, although we were part of a larger group.

This is an informal site, very quiet (no traffic noise!), with very basic but perfectly adequate facilities which were spotlessly maintained.

We visited the White Horse at nearby Staunton and enjoyed an excellent meal although there are other options nearby, especially in Monmouth, a 10 minute drive away.

There are more local attractions, for all ages, than you could shake a stick at. Fine walks are plentiful in the immediate area.

The owners are very trusting, relying on your honesty to pay using an 'honesty box' if they are not available on site.
