Just because Greenacres has two beautiful views it doesn’t mean that they do it be halves! Greenacres Holiday Park is located near Porthmadog in North Wales in between the Black Rock Sands and the foothills of Snowdonia.
The Black Rock Sands is a two mile long Blue Flag beach where the whole family can enjoy activities such as windsurfing and sailing.
And although we know Snowdonia doesn’t really need an introduction we still will – Snowdonia is one of the UK’s National Parks with stunning scenery and high top mountains,
Greenacres is situated in-between the two beautiful locations so for once its great to be stuck in the middle! We asked our wonderful work experience girl Hannah to find out why Greenarches was so popular.
Our beautiful natural backdrop
Snowdonia National Park
As Wales capital of activities, Snowdonia is bursting with action-packed entertainment – perfect to tire out the kids! If you have an activity in mind, I bet Snowdonia offer it. Everywhere you turn there is natural beauty in the form of forests, rivers, lakes and mountains – a wild and wonderful place.
Greenacres Blue Flag beach
If all that talk of activities is bring you out in a cold sweat, why not take the short stroll through the sand dunes to our golden beach. As it stretches for miles you can escape all the activities that take place , take a good book and not move for the rest of day – and why not you are on holiday!
However if you do fancy your hand at windsurfing, sailing, cycling, kite flying or swimming , during the warmer months of course, you really are spoilt for choice!
Did you know that our beach is a Blue Flag beach? This means you know you are getting a clean and safe beach, as well as beautiful!
Whats happening at the Park?
If the beautiful beach and locations isn’t enough to get you to Greenacres the park itself is a winner! Greenacres has an indoor pool and outdoor splash zone, with a terrace overlooking the outdoor play area. So enjoy a drink while keeping an eye on the kids. Plus new for 2014 we have a Millies Cookies on site, perfect for bribing the kids!
