  • 2013 - Up and Running!

    After a miserably cold and delayed start Greenacres opened for business on 2-April, despite howling Easterly winds and biting frosts more akin to January.

    A few camping die-hards braved the conditions and enjoyed bright sunshine. Travel was easy too as Somerset was one of the only snow-free destinations in the whole UK!

    At this time of year our grass should be lush and in need of weekly cutting, but the cold has stunted its growth, so we will need to take care with long-stays and  groundsheets for a while. Hopefully Spring warmth will be just around the corner.

    New washbasins at GreenacresWe're delighted to unveil our upgraded WC/shower facilities for this season. New toilets have been installed, all with child-friendly 3-way seats and easy flush cisterns.  New modern wash basins have been fitted in both Gents and Ladies, complete with automatic taps and balanced warm water. In the showers we have lowered the height of some of the buttons to make them easier for children too.

    This week we are finishing the upgrade of the older electric hookup units. There's always something to keep us busy, between answering the phone calls and emails from campers booking-in this season.

    The cold weather has certainly delayed the arrival of our swallows. In warmer Springs they would be just a few days away, but my money says we don't see them before the end of April this year.

    Things are now getting quite busy for the peak weekends and holidays, so if you haven't yet made a reservation, don't leave it too much longer or you might miss out!
