Why stay here ...

Our CL site is in the small village of Chappel which sits on the River Colne. Chappel is famous for its Victorian viaduct which is one of the largest brick built structures in England.

Greenacres location is fantastic! We are close to everything you need but still in the beautiful countryside.

All pitches are nice and sunny but if you fancy some time in the shade you can sit under the large wooden gazebo, enjoying the beautiful scent of a climbing rose.

We have a washing machine, tumble drier and a large area for washing up and preparing food.

Visit our Information Room to look at our local walks, read about our lovely village and gather other useful information. Here you can also check your emails with the free WIFI and take a copy of the Visit Colchester brochure with you.

Let your doggies have a run around in the designated off leash dog area. Then on the way back take a stroll around the wild flower garden, whilst listening to the birds singing.

Rainy day? Check out the football and pool table or try one of the jigsaw puzzles in the Games Room.

The CL field is level and drains nicely and we like to keep the grass short too.

If you choose to stay with us, we hope you enjoy Greenacres as much as we enjoy living here.

All bookings are now online through our website.

A local site which will become a regular site.

Greenacres Farm
This is a well thought out site with all the facilities and space needed. Fairly easy access and convenient for the local bus service. Food pub in walking distance. Booked online and owner called to see all was well. Metered electricity but not a problem.

Odd toilet block/bathroom

Greenacres Farm
Stayed here last weekend. In essence this site appears to be a plot of land that the owners have set up pitches and then left the visitors to their own devices. There are 5 pitches in a decent flat field and two hardstandings. We were glad we didn't opt for the hardstandings as they faced a stark looking fence. We never had any human contact from the owners - the booking was all on-line and upon arrival the message was very much 'look after yourself'. This lack of on-site 'supervision' meant that the pitch next to us had a load of their family visit for the day - which in this current climate is not allowed. I did let the owners know about this but had no response. The toilet is a bit odd - it reminded me of the 'Cooler' in 'The Great Escape'. They had tried to make it look like a bathroom inside which included a hand towel. In this current climate?! So there was this solitary unisex bathroom - to serve 7 pitches. The door into the toilet was a barn door with gaps - when drying yourself by the door you really didn't feel it was very private. On the plus side we took our road bikes and had a nice afternoon riding in the north Essex countryside and on another day caught the bus to Earls Colne. The bus stop was 2 mins walk down the lane and they go every 30 mins, The local pub (10-15 mins walk away) was lovely and you have the viaduct as the backdrop. This wasn't a bad site - it just lacked a bit on the facilities and 'owner interaction'

Lovely Site - with video

Greenacres Farm
Spent a few very nice days here. Large open site with plenty of room to set up. The site is flat and very secure with decent facilities. The local village very pleasant with a handy little shop and nice play area under the viaduct. Short walk to the bus stop for buses into colchester. https://youtu.be/cwW60qvUWxM

Very Accommodating

Greenacres Farm
Had a lovely stay and will come back if we are in the area. The padlock on the gate is rather fiddly but not a huge problem. Jenny and Matt are very accommodating. Thank you for a lovely stay.
