Lovely CL

We have just spent the May Day Bank Holiday weekend at Greenacres and once again enjoyed our stay very much. Martin was there to greet us on arrival and hand over a fob for the electric gates which make the site safe and secure. He took us around the site allowing us to find where we would like to pitch. We love looking over the horses paddocks so pitched up so we had a lovely view. The facilities are excellent, plenty of info about the area and places to eat etc.The owners Martin and Linda are on hand if needed. Our dog was with us this time and no problems walking her down the road on the wide grass verges. The site is very well kept and will definitely be coming again when we can. We have found a little gem and only 35 mins from home. 😀

Excellent

Our first time visiting greenacres we have spent two nights here with our dog who has also enjoyed himself nice walking area for him to walk and he was made most welcome. Hence what a previous review someone made about dogs not being welcome this is so Not true. Also we paid a brilliant price for two nights with no extra cost. Fabulous. The owners where both very welcoming and helpful with area information, local pub and shops well kept pitches clean and tidy. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer but on our next visit we defiantly will. Thank you we will return soon Chrissy, Colin , & Kobi the dog 🐶

Excellent Well Run CL Site

Very welcoming and helpful owners, well run clean site with plenty of room between plots, the site is also very secure protected with large electric gates. Lots of places around this area to visit, just a few minutes to Knott End, the main car park has all day free parking, from this car park you can catch the bus into Blackpool, or as we preferred take the short ferry to Fleetwood then the tram to Blackpool, stopping at Clevelys on the way. We found plenty of places to visit around the area such as the old market town of Garstang. A nice little touch is the information area that the owners have set up where you will find maps and information about the surrounding areas. The site is also nice and quite just to sit and relax and as stated above with loads of grassed area to sit in. Thank you Martin and Linda for an enjoyable weekend
