Sun and croquet at Green Acres

General

  • Peaceful adults-only park a 15-minute drive from Carlisle
  • Half an hour's drive from Hadrian’s Wall and Lake District paths
  • Comfy communal cabin with magazines, books and DVDs

Fancy a bit of peace and quiet with not a young ‘un in sight? Book a holiday at Green Acres Caravan Park in Cumbria, an adult's-only haven that lives up to its nature-inspired name.

This friendly spot a six-mile jaunt from the history-packed city of Carlisle has been in the Brown family for three generations, making the friendly service as top-notch as the surrounding scenery. You can quiz staff on their best travel tips... or simply find a grassy patch with a view and flick through the tourist pamphlets supplied on site.

For breaks from traipsing around the cracking countryside, the communal cabin’s full of comfy seats for snuggling in with one of the mags or books provided. Bucketing down outside? Hole up with entertainment courtesy of the DVD selection… along with snacks from the grocer’s in Houghton village a five-minute drive away. For enough food to feed a small army, there's also a well-stocked supermarket less than 10 minutes from the park.

Got caught up in that aforementioned shower? Laundry facilities are on hand to freshen up clothes. And if your car or caravan’s been given a mud bath too, the site has a token-operated vehicle-washing area for spraying those down.

Peaceful and immaculate site with clean facilities and friendly staff30/10/2019

  • Fully-serviced hardstanding and grass touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    The flexibility of the staff for late checkin and the ease of checking in. The site was very well kept with great sized hardstandings and the staff were very thoughtful on our intended location with regards to ease of parking as we were first time motorhomes. The showers were immaculate with plenty of hot water and the site was a joy to stay overnight. It's a site that I would like to stay at for longer than the one night that we did.

    Owners we met when first signed in polite, friendly and chatty.
    Site proximity from M6 is fabulous.
    Caravan token washer available.
    Wifi available which is free in information shed.
    Lovely central location for visiting tourist spots in Carlisle, and so had some great days out.
    Very quiet site if you want peace apart from the geese flying over in magnificent flocks but this looked amazing.
    Some lovely sunsets.
    We would stay here again but maybe just for a couple of nights.

    Disliked: 

    Would of liked to see owners around but didn't see them again through the whole week.
    Needs lights around site at night...went pitch black around everywhere not even lights on the connection boxes at each pitch.
    Lots of seasonal pitches with owners that were really quite standoffish sadly at times it felt really quite uncomfortable. No one spoke to us at all through the entire week strange as we have made some fab friends at other adult only sites.
    Shower block cold and large drafty gap under door doesn't help really.
    Needs more toilets only one male toilet and one female one.
    Although there was an additional toilet in each of the two shower rooms the shower room floor was very slippy and no where really to get dressed etc just a little stool. Cob webs above shower head and not as clean as I thought it would be in the showers.

    This is the second time I have stayed here and the welcome and ease of booking in was as good as the first time. Facilities clean, hand dryers maybe could do to be a little more powerful, but that is the only down side to this site. Handy for motorway but far enough that there is no traffic noise. Would recommend.

Local attractions

History buffs rejoice: Carlisle and its castle – the storied spot where Mary Queen of Scots was locked up for a time – is under a 20-minute drive from Green Acres. And while you're in this city famed for its cathedral and racecourse, the shops are worth a perusal as well...

Hadrian’s Wall on your bucket list? Perfect – it’s a mere half an hour in the car to this top Roman attraction (the most visited of such in all of Britain, in fact). Or if you fancy stretching your legs, there’s always the 84-mile Hadrian’s Wall Path and the fell walks of the Lake District, with the latter starting a 30-minute drive to the south.

Tad more arduous than you were after? Shorter walks can be had right from the site: a dog-walking area begins at the top end, leading to woodlands and linking up with a public footpath. Or you could drive to Lanercost Priory 20 minutes away to meander around the medieval cloisters and grounds.

Must see

  • Carlisle Castle (3.6 miles)
  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (7.4 miles)
  • Birdoswald Roman Fort (12.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Allen Banks and Staward Gorge (23.0 miles)
  • Hadrian's Wall and Housesteads Fort (23.8 miles)
