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.

Gem of a CL

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.

Great location and very friendly hosts

We spent five nights here and it is a great CL in a wonderful location. Zoe and Howard are excellent hosts, so friendly and helpful, with lots of good suggestions for walks and other places of interest in the local area. The views are beautiful and the dog walk on site down to the pond is a big bonus - as were the lovely eggs form their hens. Everything on site was so well maintained, really clean and well cared for. We would highly recommend this site and hope to come back again soon. Thank you so much, Zoe and Howard.

Great CL - interesting place

We spent five nights here in Oct and thoroughly enjoyed it. Zoe and Howard were very accommodating and friendly, going out of their way to make sure our stay was as good as it could be. The quality of everything was superb for a CL and the views were lovely. Interesting place as it is also a smallholding with unusual breeds of sheep (well they were unusual to me :) Nice to be able to get their own produce for breakfast and well placed to get to the Dorset Coast. Overall a quiet and peaceful stay - will be back!

Great little getaway. Zoe And Howard make everybody welcome with friendly chats and advice about the local area.We particularly enjoyed exploring the two local hill forts (the steps keep your calves in trim) We would and probably will return. Many thanks for a lovely stay. Trev and Barb.

Fab Little Gem of A Place!

This little site has the most stunning scenery in a very peaceful setting. Zoe greeted us very warmly and then came back with a cream tea! How wonderful! She is a very easy going host, easy to chat too and always around if you need anything. We sampled her own bacon and eggs which was delish. We only wished we’d booked for longer as we only had two nights as we were on route to Cornwall. It’s a great location for visiting Lyme Regis which is lovely but packed! Go early! Shave Inn pub serves great food but wear warm clothes as you have to sit outside in an open marquee, due to Covid regs. We will definitely return.
