 Well run site with plenty of space for each pitch.

Clean toilets and showers.

Easy walk into Coleford, where there is a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Walks at nearby RSPB Nagshead good also.

 Another stay here and can not fault how clean and tidy all the facilities are.

WiFi not to bad.

Lovely little walks for your furry companion/s. Coleford not far.

Will be looking to book again.

Reviewer: Dk168 48 reviews from this member

 I stayed 6 nights at this campsite and would definitely return.

The facilities were very clean and the site was well-kept and maintained. The only niggle, and it was a very small niggle, in that the lights in the ladies toilets/showers block did not stay on very long during the day, and slightly longer at night. I had mentioned it to the staff during my stay.

The lady owner was very helpful when I asked for a pitch with good Wi-Fi as back-up in case I did not get a good mobile phone signal for work purposes, and was directed to pitch behind the Reception which was normally reserved for emergency purposes. In the end I did not need to use their Wi-Fi which was 1. 00 GBP per day as the mobile signal for EE and 3/Smarty was very good.

THANK YOU for letting me stay on that pitch as it was close to the facilities block. I shall request for a hard-standing pitch close to the Reception in future as they were flatter.

The staff at the Reception were very helpful, and it was well-stocked with provisions and basic camping equipment. They also sold snacks such as freshly baked croissants, stuffed crust pizzas, paninis, hot and cold drinks.

Symonds Yat Rock was only a short drive away. It cost me 8 GBP for 2h's minimum parking in the afternoon for a motorhome, slightly cheaper for a car. Bring cash and plenty of coins in case one cannot get a mobile phone signal to use the parking app (RingGo, I managed to use the app).

On the way back from Symonds Yat Rock, I stopped at Coleford which was the nearest town for a bite to eat and went to the Aslan's the Turkish Restaurant. It was OK, perhaps a tad too expensive for what I had, and I thought I could make the two cold meze dishes better myself. I would probably opt for a kebab from one of a few kebab joints in future.

There were walks from the campsite including one into town down the hill that allegedly would take about 15-20min.

The approach to the campsite from the owners' house was quite steep (single track) IMHO, however, I found it manageable in my van.

All in all, a nice site at a good location, and I would recommend it.

 A very pleasant three night stay on this lovely site close to the vibrant town of Coleford.

As mentioned elsewhere, you can easily walk there via footpaths with a playground and outdoor fitness park on the way.

Please try and support the Merlin Cinema in the town if you get the chance - a charming old fashioned picture house showing the latest blockbusters.

One small point - there did seem to be a rather long way between tent pitches and their hook up points -a 15m cable didn't reach in our case.

Apart from that I would recommend Greenacres as a fantastic base for exploring the Forest of Dean and participating in the many activities it has to offer all ages.

 Probably our 4th visit here and it never fails to impress.

Free showers with plunge type activation in a very clean block that includes a laundry, family bathroom and dish washing area.

The shop/office has hot food and drink for sale, as well as essentials and ice cream.

The pitches are a good size and the owners are not snobs when it comes to units and converted vans etc.

Direct access to fields for walking the dog or just to explore.

You can walk into Coleford from the site as it's around 1 mile.

The town itself has everything you need for food, drink and leisure.

Reviewer: Sidrat 16 reviews from this member

 So after reading the reviews on here we decided to go back to the Forest of Dean, we haven't been for 10 years. We only tend to stay in sites with a 9 or 10 star review, so this fitted the bill.

The site was almost full during our stay but still plenty of space. We ended up in a corner site under a tree which means we now have to give the tent a clean, but it does make the site secluded with plenty of trees and hedges.

Site amenities were nice and reasonably new, there is a little shop on site, they sell coffee, cake and ice cream too which is a nice touch.

The owners and reception are great, it was a little noisy one evening but after a number of people mentioned it they went and had a chat and all was good.

It really is close to lots of things to do, you can spend a week there and not go further than 5 miles from the campsite.

Thoroughly recommended.

 A lovely spacious site.

There was a pleasant walk from the site into Coleford and also walks from the site into the forest.

Monmouth is a short drive away

Don't follow the sat nav it takes you up a very narrow road

 It is a lovely site, no traffic noise. Set in the forest of Dean it has some lovely walks.

The showers and toilets were all very clean and well maintained. Jess who welcomed us on arrival was very friendly and really helpful in answering our questions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Greenacres, I will definitely be returning, there is so much to do round about.
