Very relaxing 3 nights away

Greenacres Caravan Site
As new to Motorhoming this was our first visit to a CL. We were not disappointed, this is a lovely site and we had an amazing break here. Due to hubby having to work late I emailed Martin to let him know our ETA would be around 4pm. Good enough when we arrived, the gates were open and Martin greeted us, really nice friendly chap. He showed hubby all the facilities and showed us our pitch. We were given an electronic fob to open the electric gates but we didn't use this as we went on foot everywhere so Millie stayed put! The site is very rural, surrounded by trees and with horse paddocks facing the pitches. We stayed on our original pitch for one night only as Martin said we could move to the pitch opposite as the current occupiers were leaving in the morning. This was much better as we were right next to the fields that the horses came into of a morning, lovely to see them running off and frolicking on the grass. The toilet and wash room are in the tack room where there's plenty of information for the local area, an array of books you can borrow and all very Covid safe with sanitiser and paper towels to wipe down surfaces. There is a washing machine here which is available to use for a small fee. The tack room is in a small quadrant where the stables are so every morning the horses would pop their heads out looking for a stroke, which was lovely. A bus runs Monday to Saturday outside the site, just stick your hand out and it will stop! We took this to Knott end on Sea from where we got the ferry to Fleetwood then the tram into Blackpool for a day out. It's best to check ferry times as we thought last one was 5.45pm, but it was 2 hours earlier so we had to get the 2C bus back to Knott End. There are a few nice pubs in walking distance. We had Sunday lunch at the Black Bull in Preesall, very nice with good food and good prices. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly reccommend Greenacres. As a result I think in future we'll probably try and book CLs before considering club sites.

Friendly and welcoming

Greenacres Caravan Site
Stayed 4 nights in early Sept. Made very welcome on arrival with detailed explanations of all facilities. Excellent COVID protection evident. Decent walk from site to Knott End avoiding main roads. Also enjoyed promenade walk from Cleverly to Blackpool. Trough of Bowland worth a visit if enjoy walking. Shovels pub worth a visit and again Covid care evident. We will return. PS Great homemade cushions by Linda (for charity)

HEART WARMING

Greenacres Caravan Site
Stayed 14th - 17th August - testing out our new caravan! Arrived the morning after a downpour thus the ground was sodden, that said the site owner was on hand to assist with placing the caravan in a most suitable position with ease. It's a small intimate site with only 5 vans which means it's quite peaceful and leisurely. Horse meadows and uninterrupted views meant the sunset was amazing. A small but useful shop across the road served as emergency store but other shops are only a short drive away. Martin and Linda are excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble being that the weather had been dreadful they accommodated all our needs and being caravaners themselves where informative and knowledgeable. Would defiantly like to revisit and stay longer next time.. Angela & Tony Johnson

Fantastic CL site.

Greenacres Caravan Site
Most accurate instructions given to find this perfect site by Martin & Linda. On arrival to site Linda was on hand to welcome me and the wife as Martin was out. No problems getting our van sited everything was explained to us by Linda and we was shown around the site for the amenities. First impressions was that we was going to enjoy the 5 nights we booked for and we was not disappointed. The weather was very sunny and hot. During the night we had thunder and lightning for two nights. The site was kept clean and tidy by Martin & Linda. Nothing to complain about the site it was just as the other reviews have stated very nice and peaceful. Will be visiting this little gem of a site again. Martin and Linda asked us to let them know if there was any problems with site and always spoke to me and the wife when we saw each other. Both always had time to spend with their customers on site. 100% one of the best we have been on
