Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We've been caravanning for over 30 years and never stayed on such a beautiful well maintained site before. From contacting the site to organise our stay everything progressed perfectly and was easy to access. It was very simple and straightforward from the motorway to the site. The Sunday dinner and Thursday night chippy was a brilliant idea and reasonably priced also delicious 😋 We've already recommended Green Acres to friends of ours and we will definitely be back again. Thank you for our stay.

We stayed here for two nights on our journey home from Scotland, this site was recommended to us by my parents & Wow we weren’t disappointed. We had a warm welcome & a nice chat from the owner, our pitch number was giving to us by email a few days before our arrival, so we could drive straight to it. Lovely fully serviced pitch & then we found the facilities!!!! WOW……. Amazing, the best,nicest,cleanest ever. Would Highly Recommend this site and will definitely be returning again 😀😀

WOW! What a site, we use a lot of the sites listed in the Tranquil Sites Book and this must be one of the finest we've been to. The pitches, the view, the landscaping and the facilities are all first class and the site is kept well manicured and extremely clean and also very peaceful. There's a great dog field, although this became a little muddy under foot due to all the rain that dropped on previous weeks, however there is another lovely dog walk that's a bit cleaner under foot if it's been raining and it takes you round a small woodland area, it was just a shame that other inconsiderate dog owners didn't read the many signs on display to "pick up after their dog" on a couple of occasions. Other great services they offer are a "Roast Dinner Sunday" and a "Fish & Chip Thursday" delivery service from the local hostelry, we tried the Sunday Dinner and it was absolutely delicious. This is definitely a site we will be revisiting and hopefully very soon, also great that it's only an hour from home, so i would have no hesitation in scoring this site 10 out of 10. HOWEVER, if i did have to gripe about something, it would be the chemical waste point or the lack of more of them. Despite the facilities being first class, when you get to a certain age the caravan facilities become even more important, especially at 3 in the morning in the pouring rain and unfortunately there is only 1 chemical waste point and due to the road surface, you are unable to wheel the toilet cassette to the disposal point and it can be rather heavy to carry when full, especially when we're all getting a little older. So, if we can have another disposal point nearer to the main facilities block that would make a double WOW and a score of 11 out of 10!

Thank you so much for leaving us a fab review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to take advantage of our Sunday night takeaway option :) There are a few reasons as to why the chemical disposal point is where it is and it is unfortunately something that we can't get past however if you do visit us a again please let me know if you would like to be pitched closer by, we hope to see you in the not too distant future and thank you once again, Mike & Josie

Peaceful, quiet and out of the way. No hustle and bustle. Beautiful private campground and close to the quaint town of Carlisle. Bathrooms are more than you can ever expect. Premium facility doesn’t seem enough to describe the modern shower block.

Excellent site with top class facilities. The site is family run and they can’t do enough to make your stay enjoyable. It is dog friendly with excellent dog walks with plenty of wild life about. There is a games room and an outdoor boules area. It is in an ideal location for touring the Lake District or the Scottish Borders.

First time visiting Green Acres and was not disappointed, lovely, clean and well maintained park. The pitches were a generous size too and level, the toilet block is stunning, definitely the nicest I've ever seen, ordered my Sunday dinner which was delicious, lots to do in the area. I most definitely will be back

A stunning site run by a very friendly family. The pitches are level and very well maintained. There are two dog walking areas, one of which leads onto a local footpath. The new shower / toilet block is the best we have ever seen in over 40 years of caravanning ! It would not be out of place at the Ritz!
