About the site
Greenacres is an award-winning family owned campsite set in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
The quiet 4.5 acre site nestles where the Somerset Levels meets the Mendip Hills, with stunning views of Glastonbury Tor. The site provides idyllic countryside, amazing wildlife and a peaceful, get-away-from-it-all holiday, and only 40 minutes from the hustle of Bristol and Bath.
For 2011 the AA awarded the site a merit score of 95%, the highest in Somerset once again saying that Greenacres provides "an excellent, spacious, family camping environment " and The Alan Rogers Guide of hand-picked sites said "a true haven of peace and quiet". Greenacres is also one of the select sites featured in the Cool Camping guide for England, with "a safe and comfortable environment for young families to enjoy camping".
The site is flat and easily accessible. There is plenty of space for children to play, with swings and slides etc
