General

  • Lakeside park on five acres of land adjoining the village mere
  • Social area and kitchen for guests' use
  • 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-looking social area, all hand-built and including a kitchen with fridge, kettle, utensils, pots and microwave.

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

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

People with severe walking difficulties should refrain from booking this site.

Lovely, peaceful, welcoming site with fantastic access from the site ... 25/09/2017

  • Badger camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely, peaceful, welcoming site with fantastic access from the site to flat, low-level walks around the mere (particularly useful for our getting on in years dog). We loved the Badger Pod - spacious for two and sitting by the fire outside was great. The outdoor kitchen facilities and seating space really useful too looking out on the lovely landscaped pond and the little friendly touches mean you feel straight at home. The bathroom facilities clean and fine. Friendly and helpful welcome.

    Disliked: 

    Could imagine there might be a queue for the bathroom facilities if more people on the site. We were lucky as only 4 other spots were taken.

    Beautiful peaceful setting, well set up, owners very friendly and helpful, facilities are good, plenty of space to camp in and not too far from town for shopping.

    Disliked: 

    Ladies facilities could do with updating, the women in the party said they felt it was a bit cramped and they would prefer them to look more like the men's as they were more spacious.

    The camp site is in a great location. Plenty of walks that can be started straight from the campsite. Very peaceful, no sounds of traffic at all. The facilities were very clean, plenty of loo roll and hand wash.

    Disliked: 

    The only downside is that there is only one cubicle with a toilet and shower for men. It got busy in the morning and evening with people waiting to shower and brush their teeth

Directions

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 three-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)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (10.7 miles)
  • Attingham Park (16.1 miles)
