Fishing at our reservoir (please enquire when booking), £10 charge per person wishing to fish. Passes for nearby nature reserves, superb birdwatching opportunities.
Excellent family base for Essex and Suffolk coastline, countryside and tourist attractions.

Accommodation

Enjoy a luxurious stay in one of our CargoPods, a very unique way to glamp.

Larger in size than our MegaPods, the CargoPods sleep up to two adults only, or two adults and two children on a double bed in a separate bedroom and a large double sofa bed in the living area.
Each CargoPod has a kitchen area and a shower room with loo, sink and shower inside. The CargoPods can be booked separately, or together, opening the large solid wooden gates in-between them for two families, to create one large garden area. If you wish to book for three or four adults you will need to book two Pods.

The Purple CargoPod is situated on it’s own in a small orchard, with plenty of space to relax. You can pick fruit from the trees and hedges in September!
The Green CargoPod is set in it’s own private paddock, with a large decked area, a great spot for sun bathing.

It really is the perfect way to glamp in a most lovely location.

Hot tubs:
Outside, there is a four person log fired hot tub set on the private decking of each CargoPod, optional to book and available for an additional cost:
The base price is £75 for one – two nights, then £20 for each night thereafter. We supply the hot tubs freshly cleaned and filled with water, we also supply logs and a firebrick to light and heat the hot tubs, it is up to the guest to light and heat the hot tub.

Location

St Osyth is a small village to the west of Clacton. It offers a few shops and general stores along with 2 pubs and a good fish and chip shop. There are approximately 115 buildings around the village listed as historic or having special architectural interest including the Priory. Oyster beds can be found at the beach past the village.

There are pleasant walking and cycling opportunities around the farm and village. Fishing at our reservoir can be arranged as can passes for nearby nature reserves which offer superb birdwatching opportunities, barn owls, little egrets, curlews and and regular sightings of the once rare marsh harrier have been reported.

It really is an excellent base for Essex and Suffolk coastline, countryside and tourist attractions.

Colchester is a quick drive or bus ride away, and as England’s oldest recorded town there’ll be plenty of historical sights to see – have a wander around Colchester Castle, picnic in the park, then keep the kids happy by taking them to the Colchester Zoo, voted second best in the country.

The famous Suffolk Heritage Coastline is also a short drive away with towns such as Southwold and Aldesburgh to browse around, both are well worth a visit, or else head to neighbouring Wivenhoe for a drink by the quay, or Brightlingsea, ideal for crabbing with the kids and you must try Mac’s Plaice for fabulous fish and chips here, then take the little foot ferry back to Point Clear.

Picturesque Dedham is a short drive away, perfect for walks in the beautiful Stour Valley, boating (bring your own kayaks / canoes or hire a row boat), cream teas and visiting the famous artworks of Constable and Munnings.
