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 beginning of April 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!
Nine fully serviced pitches which include 16 amps of electric, water tap and grey water drainage, 17 standard pitches with 10amps of electric and several water taps nearby. All pitches are hardstanding and level and there is a small camping area with electric hook up available as an extra.
DOG WALK – Our much loved dog walk is located at the top end of the park and leads to a quiet woodland area which is followed by a public foot path, plenty of space for you to explore and exercise.
THE CABIN – The Cabin is the perfect place to take a comfy seat and either take advantage of the free Wi-Fi available or just simply enjoy the peace and quiet. All of the tourist information you will need whilst staying with us is in The Cabin as well as a selection of magazines, books and DVD’s all free of charge.
LAUNDRY – Inside the laundry room there is a washing machine, dryer and iron which are all coin operated. We also have a selection of complimentary laundry supplements.
TOILETS – We pride ourselves on keeping the toilet block facilities in immaculate condition. There are Male and Female toilets with enclosed showers and two newly refurbished unisex wet rooms with space for a companion to assist if needed.
BIKE HIRE – Why not hire one of our bikes and explore the surrounding countryside or take to the city by two wheels, no need to worry about parking or traffic and a great way to keep fit.
CAR/CARAVAN WASH – We have a token operated car and caravan wash area.
WASHING UP FACILITIES – There are outside washing facilities available which are under shelter on the site.
