Why stay here ...

Greenacres Marshwood CL is located on the border of the three counties of Devon, Dorset and Somerset, in the Marshwood Vale near to the picturesque Jurassic Coastline of Lyme Regis, Charmouth and Abbotsbury. It is a 5-van 'Members Only' recreation site offering stays up to 28 days. Sited in a beautiful and secluded rural location, with views that have to be seen to be believed, it is available for adults only.

Please note that  we currently offer four electric hook up points across the two fields that is the CL.

We ask that GREEN FLUID ONLY be used in CCEP so if you don't have this on arrival, we sell it on site but ask that you do not use any other type of Fluid. 

We have transformed our shed which is available for book swapping, with two lockable units to charge phones.

Our site offers peace and quiet and the opportunity to enjoy an outdoors experience surrounded by wildlife and farm stock. We do welcome well-behaved dogs, but would ask that they are on a lead at all times and are kept within the areas designated to ensure that our wildlife is not unduly disturbed. Our visitors often remain on site, favouring the ultimate country experience. Our chickens and ducks free range within the Greenacres garden and sheep and pigs graze in our surrounding paddocks. Home produce of hen and duck eggs, bacon and sausages are always available for you to cook on site.

Greenacres is a smallholding surrounded by rolling hills and fields full of wildlife and flowers. We also have a pond where you can do a spot of fishing. please ask if this interests you, when booking. 

Pilsden Pen can be viewed from the site - the second highest point in Dorset and is a short drive to experience the breath-taking views across the Vale. The Golden Cap is the highest point on the South Coast of England and can be reached in less than twenty minutes. A few miles further is the delightful Dorset town of Bridport. Lyme Regis is also a popular place to visit with facilities and entertainment they offer. Plus the village of Charmouth, renowned for its fossil hunting, is only 8 miles away.

The deer regularly visit the lower meadows as the sun sets and a variety of birds of prey and owls can be seen and heard throughout the evening. During the day you may be lucky to spot a variety of wild species, from rabbits to foxes and beyond. Star-gazing can be enjoyed here too, as the farm is set back 200 metres from the road, with no light pollution to spoil the spectacle. Total peace and quiet.....

On entering Greenacres you will find sufficient space to clear the road and open the locked gateway before proceeding to the grass pitches along a hard all-weather track. There is additional parking at the entrance for extra vehicles.

A Wessex Wonder

Greenacres Marshwood
We have just spent two weeks at this lovely C.L., everything about it is outstanding. Zoe and Howard are the most friendly hosts you can find on the C.L. base, the site is pristine with short cut grass, the views and sunsets are to die for , the information centre, waste disposal and recycling station are all very tidy, there is fabulous bacon, eggs and sausages available from Zoe. The site is easy to find, is well sign posted and has a good pull off for your rig when arriving. The local sports and social club at Thorncombe have very reasonably priced drinks and does lovely food. If we are back in Dorset we would love to stay at this brilliant C.L. once again. Thank you Zoe and Howard for letting us stay on your brilliant site, Highly Recommended 5 Star.

Beautiful location with great hospitality

Greenacres Marshwood
Amazing view in very quiet tranquil setting. Host Zoe could not have been more helpful or welcoming.. Immaculate pitch with so much space. We stayed on Ehu 4 Quite sloping - you will need ramps or in our case hydraulic levelling. Zoe helpfully had bricks and wood blocks available which we used on our camping table. Dogs on leads due to sheep, chickens and pigs! Great dog walk on site down to the pond. Good access to Lyme Regis and Bridport, but if in motorhome would probably need transport - we took a car. Quick tip - don't follow your sat nav if coming down M5 - go the extra distance towards Axminster, the alternative is hairy, with very few passing spaces. Enjoyed focus on sustainability and environmental measures - green fluid only Water and EHu on pitch, and can park how you like to take advantage of the views First CL we cant wait to make a regular. Thank you

Gem of a site and hosts.

Greenacres Marshwood
What a gem of a site and hosts.It is like pitching up on the18th green at St Andrews the grass is so well manicured.To be given half a dozen eggs and a bunch of sweetpeas was very much appreciated and made us feel even more welcome.We will certainly be making a return visit.Hence the 5 stars.

Gem of a CL

Greenacres Marshwood
We stayed here for three nights last week. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Zoe as well as half a dozen free eggs. The site is very well kept, with grass mown and clippings collected. Lovely views across the valley. Ryedale sheep, pigs, hens and ducks to watch which adds to the enjoyment. Zoe and Howard also supply their own sausages and bacon, which are delicious. The facilities have EHU and water on each pitch. The recycling and information provided is excellent. The gates are kept locked which gives you peace of mind for security. The entrance is easily accessed off the road with a good pull in space. There is a dog walk which is also kept mown down to a wildlife pond and they’ve helpfully provided a dog waste bin down by the pond and a seat. Overall this is an excellent site. There is some road noise, but it didn’t bother us. This CL is in a lovely County with lots of interesting places to visit. However, we as Motorhomers did have a problem. It does state that the site slopes, which for caravans probably won’t be a problem. But the site does slope in two different directions, therefore for a Motorhome make it almost impossible to level up. They’ve said there are plans to level up a couple of the pitches, which should help in the future. Because of the slope situation, we’ve reluctantly had to award four stars rather than five.
