Colemans Cottage Fishery: Glamping in Essex

General

  • Peaceful rural site a mile and a half from the village of Witham
  • Five fishing lakes with 100+ pegs and carp up to 22lb
  • Tackle shop and licensed bar-restaurant on site

To Essex! And to angling followed by dining in a waterside restaurant… take your tackle to Colemans Cottage Fishery to get hooked on these green and serene surrounds.

There are five fishing lakes on this lush Essex site, home of over 100 pegs and stuffed with specimens of roach, bream, barbel, rudd and carp of up to 22lb. Fishing is via day tickets bought from the Colemans Cottage tackle shop, where you can also top up your kit, buy bait, or swap tales of whoppers and fishing tips with the expert staff.

And if you're not a fishing sort? Also sorted: Colemans is a mile and a half from the village of Witham, from which you can reach Colchester in 15 minutes' drive in one direction and Chelmsford in 25 minutes in the other for days of shopping and sightseeing. Maldon and Mersea Island are within easy reach too, as is Southend for days at the Essex coast.

Whatever your plans for the day, there's a warm welcome at the site's Waterside licensed bar and restaurant, where the menu offers up full breakfasts, homemade lunches and desserts, seasonal dishes and afternoon tea, along with drinks to raise a glass to the catch of the day.

    Hosts very welcoming and friendly.
    Motorhome pitches located in very pleasant surroundings, peaceful and quiet. We stayed twice during our month long visit to the UK in August/September, for 11 nights and again for 7 nights as the location very close to Witham town was perfect for us visiting family.

Quite fishing location31/08/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomClint E.Confirmed

  • Electric hardstanding and grass touring pitch (adults only)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This is a quite site with only 5 pitches mainly intended for caravans. It is on a fishery and close to 3 fishing lakes. Amenities are minimal but generally sufficient for your stay but there are no washing up facilities available to campers. Toilets and showers adequate for size of site.
    The site boasts several 'pods' for 'glamping' which are well situated and look to be really comfortable.
    Really nice couple run the site and are as helpful as they can be.
    There is a bar/restaurant which is welcoming but only open on selected days.
    The site is close to Whitham near Little Braxted and has good access to cycle and walking routes to nearby villages.
    All services at Whitham close by.

    Disliked: 

    This site is predominately a fishing location with regular fish club members and guests arriving daily.
    Quiet limited pitches best suited to caravans and those with own facilities.
    Fishing is charged extra to pitch fees.

    Friendly hosts. Fishing lakes attractive.

    Disliked: 

    Inadequate toilet facilities - no paper, soap, broken seat, no washing up facilities.

From the manager...

The facilities are checked daily and cleaned and items are replaced as needed.
In regard to the toilet seat, it was repaired before it was reported as we had noticed it ourselves on our check. so it was a case of thank you for letting us know but it's just been fixed.
