Green Acres Caravan ParkCarlisle, Cumbria
Green Acres has been proudly offering beautiful surroundings for over 50 years to holiday makers
who are looking for a place to relax, de-stress and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside.
Three generations ago the Brown family set up a small 5 pitch CL site on the farmhouse’s orchard and since then it has developed each year to the tranquil touring site it is today. We are exclusively for adults only – making us the perfect getaway to unwind.
The park is a short drive away from the Lake District and just outside the historical City of Carlisle which has many places of interest that you can enjoy exploring whilst staying with us.
Open from the middle of March to the end of October Green Acres Caravan Park runs alongside a working farm surrounded by fields and breathtaking views yet this tranquil site is only a 5 minute drive from the motorway!
Fourteen standard pitches with 10amps of electric and several water taps nearby, twenty-One fully serviced pitches which include 16 amps of electric, water tap and grey water drainage, and three Premium Pitches which include a private picnic bench. All pitches are hardstanding and level.
DOG WALK – Our dog walk starts directly from the rear of the park and heads to our small woodland area which then leads to a quiet public footpath. We also have a dog exercise area; guests are welcome to allow their dogs off the lead in this area on the understanding that they are still fully in control of their pet.
