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 currently offer two electric hook up points.

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.

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.

Great CL

A wonderful welcome from Zoe and Howard. We stayed without EHU, site spacious, lovely views, road noise hardly there. A lot of thought and care taken into setting up this CL. As most of us appreciate the CL's it is a shame a member objected to the owner's request to have his dog on the lead. The dog walk is lengthy and quite adequate. Came home with sausages and bacon - quite delicious.

Peace and relaxation

What a wonderful little CL site this is. We took pot luck and rang up whilst we were on route to another location, the traffic was so bad we decided to try our luck. So glad we did. Zoe and Howard are just wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble and so friendly whilst still respecting the fact that you are on your holiday. They are really keen to listen to your views as a camper as to how they could make improvements to their new site. The site is so peaceful with the most amazing views. To just sit there in the peace and quiet made for a perfect weekend. The fact that it is adults only makes is even more appealing to us and the fact we could take Winston was the icing on the cake. Well done Zoe and Howard, we wish you every success. You really deserve it. Nearly forgot - if you do go buy some of their home produce. The sausages and bacon are just gorgeous!!

New site - very helpful owners-

I would have scored higher , but there was just a few things that we didn't like ( all personal views ) so don't want to sound too critical. We visited the site in July 19. Owners Zoe & Howard very very keen to please and get our view on the site and what we would like in terms of any improvements. The site was lovely , good waste & toilet disposal facilities, sloping in parts , so make sure you have your blocks . If I had a minor comment , whilst most CLs request dogs on leads ,most are a little relaxed around the van. This was strictly on leads at all times, there really wasn't anywhere you could walk the dogs without the lead, just to let them do their toilet duties. That said the long overgrown grass & weeds was cut on the second day and a opening created , however this was still a very overgrown. The views and sunsets are magnificent , there was only one other van on the site , so lovely and quiet. No walks directly from site , without accessing a busy road, so be careful if you do want to venture out without the car. Please keep it adults only & solar. We did have a good stay , a little to far in land from the coast , so not sure we will revisit , but never say never :)

A place to relax.

Just had short break at this recently opened CL. Lovely rural and peaceful location, good access from road which is not difficult to tow, (no single vehicle country lane approach as many rural sites). The road is not very busy and the CL is set back from it so very little road noise can be heard on site. The site is slightly sloping so chocks may be required, but this gives the benefit of lovely views of the countryside and Pilsdon Pen. Essential facilities including recycling are provided and owners Zoe and Howard were keen to hear what visitors want from their site. A walk has been provided to the bottom of the field where there is a tranquil pond where we saw deer and fox. We were also treated to the sight of a Red Kite joining Buzzards and Sparrow Hawk circling and swooping into the field as the hay was cut. Nearby are Pilsdon Pen, Lamberts Castle and Coneys Castle all Hill forts suitable for walking and magnificent views. The site is close to the Dorset, Somerset, Devon borders and also in easy reach of the West Dorset and East Devon coast. In summary, a lovely peaceful location to chill out but with good access to the area. We will be back.
