Colemere Caravan Park: Evening around the mere

General

  • Lakeside park in a wildlife haven on five acres of grassland
  • Dog friendly with woodland walks; hot tub to hire
  • A few minutes' walk from a nature reserve with fishing pools

Grownups! If you seek serenity, scenery and nature-spotting on holiday, this is the Shropshire site for you.

Adjacent to the mere of Colemere and set on the lake's south side, adults-only Colemere Caravan Park is in a countryside setting on five acres of wildlife-laden land with peaceful walks all around – and a quarter of a mile from Wood Lane nature reserve, which the expert folk at the BBC describe as one of the best birdwatching sites in Shropshire.

Owners Dave and Ingrid have put a lot of thought into ensuring that guests are kept comfy at this peaceful and popular little site: as well as a good range of accommodation options, guests have access to a fully-equipped and cute social area, all hand-built and including a kitchen with fridge, kettle, utensils, pots and microwave. Firepits are available on request and guests can bring their own barbecues. And for keeping toasty after that, a Nordic wood-fired hot tub overlooking the lily pond is available to hire in the afternoons and evenings for four-hour periods (couples only).

Picnic tables are dotted around to place the campfire food on, and the park has well-kept separate bathrooms for ladies and gents.

    Lots of pitches to choose from. Lovely clean toilet/showers, plenty of hot water and good flow to the shower . A lovely surprise to find a log cabin style building to retire to. To find a toaster was a blessing. The views were amazing . We liked that the grass wasn't cut between the pitches adding to the country effect, long grass and some wild flowers

Pretty and peaceful adults only site with great facilities20/06/2022

  • Electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We really enjoyed our stay this weekend at Colemere - it's a very pretty, peaceful, adults only site. We had a tent pitch with electric hookup and a great view of the countryside. On arrival the host Dave was very helpful and provided us with a map with all of the info we needed about places of interest, mere-side walks, best pubs for food and local shops.
    This quaint and quirky site has everything you'd need: toilet and shower block, a communal cabin area with sink, fridge, kettle and lovely dining and seating area. You can even get fresh duck eggs via the honesty bowl. Recycling, waste bins and water supply are all within easy access to the pitches.
    Hot tub hire looked great, as did the fire pit hire, but we didn't partake on this visit.
    All in all it's a great little site and we'll definitely be returning there soon.

Directions


Coming from Ellesmere to Shrewsbury on the A528 you will see signs for Colemere after 2 miles. Turn left at the crossroads and drive to the next junction where the three lanes converge. Turn left on to Mill Lane and the park is 100 metres on your right-hand side.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

There's stacks to do in the surrounding area, whether you want to stick close to home by foot or pedal, or drive a bit further afield to the towns, tourist attractions and landscapes of Shropshire, Cheshire and north-east Wales – the city of Chester is 40 minutes away and Llangollen on the River Dee reachable within an hour.

On the doorstep, tackle the two-mile walk along the canal towpath to Ellesmere or make your way via the purpose-built circular walk and through a wooded area of rhododendrons around the mere and nature reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest with species galore to see like otters, lapwings and water birds.

The reserve also has several deep fishing pools well-stocked with catfish and big carp; more fishing – and carp – can be had nearby at Blackmere along the towpath from Colmere.

Also nearby, wander into Colemere village to see the fifteenth-century thatched cottages, listed in the Domesday Book, to Ellesmere for food festivals, regattas and boat rides on the mere, or drive to Rednal Karting, Paintballing and Laser for an exciting time ten minutes away. Castles including Chirk and Whittington are a doddle to drive to too.

If being on the water is your thing, a narrowboat marina is a three-minute drive away from the caravan park and both Colemere and Whitemere sailing clubs are within easy reach.

By car, the standard of whitewater rafting at Bala Adventure and Watersports will have you foaming at the mouth – a milder form of the sport, along with abseiling, gorge walking, a steam railway and horse-drawn boat trips is available over the border in Wales at Llangollen.

Must see

  • Chester Castle (20.6 miles)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (20.6 miles)
  • Chester Cathedral (21.0 miles)
