Spellbinding family campsite. Spacious, safe and well-equipped place for young families; out of season, it’s very quiet for the more mature camper.

Once upon a time, an enchanting couple created a peaceful outdoor living area that was both safe and comfortable for young families and lots of fun for children. They called this place Greenacres – a gigantic four-and-a-half-acre field with just 40 pitches spread around the perimeter. The entire central swathe, is reserved for various dragon-slaying and spell-casting playtime activities, which are run by the Lazy Dayzee Crew. They pitch up here at weekends and during the week during school holidays – thereby giving mums and dads an opportunity to kick back without the little ones for an hour or so. When that’s not happening, there’s the occasional 30-a-side football match taking place in the field fit for Wembley, and perhaps a spot of ping-pong (aka wiff-waff), too. There’s no visual electronic entertainment here, just a host of classic old-fashioned toys and activities, such as Wendy houses, see-saws, swings and bikes. There's also a carefully controlled, but very wide selection of books for both the children and the adults – who will have plenty of time for stress-free reading whilst the small darlings are busy exhausting themselves in the middle of the field.

Some may find the no dogs rule here a bit restrictive but when a site is this committed to providing good, healthy, energetic leisure activities for children then it becomes a necessity.

If all this has left you imagining a site full of noisy spellbound kids chaotically running through the place among all the cars and tents, then relax. All the magic takes place in car- and tent-free zones. Except, that is, at sundown on summer evenings, when the lanes around the campsite come alive with magic beetles, and they host their ever-popular Glow Worm Safaris. During the school holidays this site is probably not best suited to those quiet, reclusive couples looking for a bit of solitude, but in early September, when the Cool Camping operatives arrived, Greenacres was P&Q personified.

There’s plenty of fun to be had in the environs of this fairy-tale campsite, as well. The moody Somerset Levels provide excellent walking opportunities or, if you fancy something that doesn’t require wearing boots, then hippy-central Glastonbury is only three miles away – and just the spot for picking up a magic wand...
