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.

One night stay in pod

Miller, Edward - 20/04/2024

Very nice well organized, clean, friendly campsite. We stayed in the pod which was lovely. The only thing was one of the beds was very squeaky which kept me up a bit and could probably be easily fixed but might just be me bothered by this being a light sleeper. Would highly recommend this campsite and will hopefully return for another stay.

It’s a lovely drive to the campsite which is a little bit out of the way but once we arrived we were taken aback by how lovely and clean, tidy and secluded it was. The staff were very helpful and sorted out our camping pitch due to heavy rain beforehand we would definitely return here

We had 4 days in a cold and wet March. The gravel pitches were flat and dry. The facilities were spot on and the croissants from the shop were a very welcome breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful.We will be going back.

Enjoyable stay at Greenacres

Lockyer, Wendy - 16/04/2024

Had originally booked a grass pitch. On arrival we were kindly allocated a hard standing pitch due to the weather, which we were able to remain on for the duration of our stay. Lovely camp site, friendly staff and modern clean facilities. Shop on site for essentials. Breakfast baps available in the mornings, and food available Friday evenings, just have to order. Reasonably priced. Easy walk into Coleford, a nice town with big chain supermarkets and small independent butchers, bakers and grocery shops etc. Site is peaceful, no road noise, A big effort has been made with the planting around the site and lots of birds flying in and out of hedging and trees. Lots of walks from the site including access to the forest.

Despite the weather trying to put a dampener on my break, I found the owners and staff very approachable and friendly, working hard trying to accommodate as many as possible despite the grass pitches being waterlogged resulting in some bookings been cancelled. I like the quiet no noise after 10 pm policy, the showers found to be spotless. I really enjoyed my time at Greenacres and looking forward to return in the future.Many Thanks to, Owners, Staff, and Fellow Guests for making my, Stay Enjoyable

I regret studying Design

Mansfield, Michael J - 15/04/2024

Very pleasant reception lady. Lovely looking toilet block. The L shaped gravel for caravan pitch makes it difficult to park car off the grass. When taking a quick shower, the light in the gents went out 5 times, by waving my hand above the door it turned back on, however in another cubicle I had to open the door to be illuminated. Where am I supposed to put my soap or sponge during the showering? Please would the owner of the site use the facility to check it works. The newly built waste water arrangement needs a ramp to drag the wastemaster onto the platform, then I have to struggle to stop the emptying end of the wastemaster sliding off the drain before I lift it to empty. You should try it! Sorry to be very negative, but if you do not know these things, others will not return either.

Great Site and excellent facilities

Harber, Sarah - 12/04/2024

We loved our stay at Greenacres,it was great to see the site looking fresh, with excellent facilities which were clean and welcoming.Small shop with essentials, and forgotten items.Recommendation if you are on a hard standing pitch would be to ensure that you had long pegs with you as the gravel is deep. Overall, would fully recommend anyone staying at greenarces, which gives you access to some many beautiful spots in the Forest of Dean
