Greenacres is a small family-run campsite. The nature of the site is laid-back and relaxed and we expect that all of our visitors behave considerately to other campers, to ensure everyone has a wonderful camping experience. After all you’re on holiday so you want to have a great time!

The campsite is located a stone’s throw from the iconic Symonds Yat and River Wye attractions, and on the edge of the main forest, so you will never be short of fun things to do.

The local area is well served with shops, pubs, restaurants, attractions and activities for all ages.

The campsite has 17 hard-standing pitches and 23 grass pitches all with electric hook-up. We are open for campervans, motorhomes and caravans but recommend that the larger ones pitch on the hard-standing areas.

Part of having a relaxed and fun camping trip is to have modern campsite facilities at your chosen destination.

At Greenacres, we know what our campers want and have been working hard to develop our family-run campsite over the years. We provide all the essential camping facilities on a relaxed campsite.

Campers of all ages are welcome including your fur babies! There are local walks in the woods and a park, 2 minutes walk away to exercise your dog.

Our family-friendly site has an onsite small play area.

Newland is a two minute drive or a short walk along the old Burial Path to find the Ostrich Pub - a quaint old fashioned English Pub.

Symonds Yat Rock with its amazing views and peregrine falcons is only a short drive away and a 3 mile hike through the woods. The site is well serviced with a public footpath running along its boundary.

MTB weekend with friends.

Knowles, Andrew - 03/11/2022

Perfect location for the FOD cycle centre. Arrived later than planned but a note was left telling us where to pitch. Great pitches, great showers and improved further with the addition of a dishwasher since our first visit. This was appreciated by our party of 2 Dads and 2 lads. We are not lazy, just committed to saving the environment!

Really Nice Campsite

Sims, Jamie - 26/10/2022

We love coming here. Our friends recommended it to us as it is a nice family and they never have any problems with antisocial behaviour. The area is also very nice with short walk to the town and close to nice places like Puzzle Wood. I have nothing bad to say about the place 🙂

Clean & Tidy Friendly Campsite

Weirdigan, Emma - 20/10/2022

Super clean and tidy campsite with great facilities and very friendly owners / staff. It was quite busy when we were there but didn't feel at all cramped and wasn't noisy. Lovely to be able to hire a firepit and buy wood for a campfire. Great too to be able to walk just a mile through parks and on footpaths to Coleford town, which surprised me with its loveliness. Proper bustling baker, butcher, greengrocer & hardware stores right in the heart of the town centre.The only negative was some clay/earth patches in the grass which made for muddy boots and equipment... but the owners were re-seeding with grass seed when we left so that'll be fixed soon!

Lovely friendly site. Excellent facilities except the lack of a waste water drain. Lovely large playing field for children but could maybe add a couple of swings etc for smaller children. Very helpful staff , lovely location.

Thank you for your review and recommendation. We have noted your comment regarding the waste facility, currently the grey waste has to be emptied in the chemical disposal point but this is on our list of winter jobs! - we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back to Greenacres in the future.

Perfect break location

Ellis, Mick - 13/10/2022

This was our first trip in a hired campervan and we needed the site to be all we hoped it could be. We were not disappointed. The initial welcome was friendly and immediately put us at ease that this was going to be a good place to spend the weekend. The showers and toilets were clean and the water hot so no issues there. The hostess provided a prioritised list of all the local hostelries and restaurants and helped draft a map of the walk into Coleford avoiding the roads. We could have been made more welcome.
