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.

    Lovely clean pod. Gorgeous camp. Beautiful lakes, well kept. Tons of fish, my husband caught loads. If the kitchen was bigger we'd stay a fortnight!

    Disliked: 

    Kitchen area small, no real counter space so difficult to self cater. Maybe fishing should be free for pods as in most sites. No wifi in pods area.

    The set up with the fishing lakes and the peace and quiet. The owner was helpful and lent us a landing net and helped with the purchase of fishing kit.

    Disliked: 

    Signage for caravans non-existent. We saw the sign for the fishery and drove past looking for the caravan park. We should have taken the fishery route but no mention of it in the road sign. Pods yes, caravans no. Facilities. No shower, toilets not very clean.
