Colemere Caravan Park: Sunset at Colemere

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. (Wild swimming is possible at the reserve too.)

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.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Remote site yet still close and accessible to the nearest town. Quiet and peaceful site with direct access to walking trails, the meres and canal. Very clean and well maintained. Dave and Ingrid were very welcoming and always checking to make sure everything was fine when they saw us. Homely shared area that I can only imagine is lovely when we are allowed to gather again with others. Internet connection wasn't too bad. We would definitely return and its been saved to our favourites.

    Disliked: 

    Not very much to dislike but it would be nice if there were recycling receptacles. I felt guilty throwing my recycling away in the general rubbish.

From the manager...

Thanks Jessica for your feedback and review.
Just to add we do have recycling bins dotted around the site .

  • Liked: 

    Me and my boyfriend stayed in the yurt for his birthday, I let the owners know this and they put in a birthday banner, chocolates and a little wine so pleased with our stay! Very nice and peaceful place. The yurt was lovely and spacious. Nice walk around the lake right next to the park too. Toilets and showers were clean and water pressure good, better than most! Owners were nice and welcoming, would definitely recommend staying here! Little bit difficult to find on the country roads depending which way you come from but otherwise couldn’t find any complaints about this place!

Directions

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)
