Fun & Friendly Camping in the Forest of Dean

Greenacres is a small family-run campsite. The nature of the site is laid-back and relaxed and we expect that all of our visitors behave considerately to other campers, to ensure everyone has a wonderful camping experience. After all you’re on holiday so you want to have a great time!

The campsite is located a stone’s throw from the iconic Symonds Yat and River Wye attractions, and on the edge of the main forest, so you will never be short of fun things to do.

The local area is well served with shops, pubs, restaurants, attractions and activities for all ages.

The campsite has 17 hard-standing pitches and 23 grass pitches all with electric hook-up. We are open for campervans, motorhomes, caravans and tents.  We recommend that the larger motorhomes pitch on the hard-standing areas.

Making Your Booking

A booking fee is required to secure your booking – 25% or £25 whichever is the greater and is non-refundable. As a family-run campsite we do our best to accommodate changes.

Cancellations – refunds are at our discretion. Full balance is due 3 weeks before your arrival.

Booking is preferred online using the online booking system on this website but if you have any difficulties or special requests, we are happy to do this for you – just call or send your details via email.

Our Campsite Rules

  • In the event of disruptive or anti-social behaviour – you will be asked to leave the site immediately. No refund will be due.
  • Dogs must be kept under close control at all times and on a lead in the communal areas.
  • Quiet times are between 10pm and 8am. This isn’t the campsite for wild all-night parties!
  • BBQ and firepits are allowed but these must be sufficiently off the ground so as to not scorch the grass and safety rules must be adhered to.

How To Find Us

We can’t wait to welcome you to Greenacres


If you are coming down the M50 you will likely get off on the A40. Once on the A40 do not get off at Goodrich or Symonds Yat – the roads are narrow and windy and not at all suitable for caravans or campervans! It is better to travel on down to Monmouth and take the A4136 towards Staunton and Coleford. Do not be tempted to follow satnav along the A466. The A4136 will take you through the village of Staunton and then you will see a turning right towards Coleford – the B4228. Take that turning right and travel about half a mile and you will come to a crossroads where again, you need to turn right into Scowles Road. We are half a mile down Scowles Road.

From the M5 and M4 you will come over the old Severn Bridge M48 towards Chepstow and pick up the A48 to Lydney. In Lydney you get the B4231 and stay on that road until you come to the junction with the B4228 – turn right and travel through the town of Coleford – you will pass 2 sets of traffic lights and once you have left Coleford you will come to the same crossroads mentioned above but this time turn left down Scowles Road.

Most SatNavs bring you right here.
