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.

    The layout of the pitches, the indoor area and the views. We have a dog and a very short walk brings you to the side of Colemere. There was plenty of space and the rabbits kept the attention of the dog.

    Everything! Dave & Ingrid were great right from the point of booking and then throughout our stay.

    The site is beautifully maintained, nice and quiet with the most idyllic setting.

    We stayed in the Kingfisher Yurt which was stunning. Big comfy oak bed with luxurious bedding, plenty of room to move around and storage for all our belongings.

    Our friends had a Campervan pitch next door to us and they also felt it was one of the best sites they had visited on their travels.

    We will all be back again and thanks so much for a fantastic stay!

    Disliked: 

    If I was forced to come up with an improvement, it would only be an option for a toilet facility closer to the bottom of the site but really isn't that much of an issue.

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 (33.1 kilometres)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (33.1 kilometres)
  • Chester Cathedral (33.8 kilometres)
