Guests need not worry about anything more than bedding, towels, and any other essentials they may require at these family-friendly wooden pod rentals in North Essex. These pods can each sleeps two adults or two adults and two children on a double bed and a large sofa bed.

There is a small kitchen area with a sink, a toaster, a kettle, a fridge, a microwave, and cutlery and melamine crockery for four people. A table and chairs and a Bluetooth sound system are also included in the cabin. There is an integral toilet and sink. One of the pods has its own solar-powered shower shed, while the other two cabins have integral wet rooms.

There are barbecues, but guests will need to bring their own charcoal. In addition, there is outside seating on a private deck and a fire pit. Campfires are not allowed. Guests can purchase logs for the fire pit and BBQ packs if required at additional cost, details on request.

Each pod has a private two-person log-fired hot tub, which is available to book for an *additional cost*. Guests should inquire with hosts upon booking request.

The site has stabling for around 12 horses, which should keep equine enthusiasts entertained. If fishing is more appealing, guests can enjoy a peaceful afternoon casting off at the on-site fishing reservoir. Guests also have access to a free pass for the neighboring Essex Wildlife Trust Colne Point Nature Reserve, and the road beyond the property leads directly to the reserve.

Guest Services

Linens and towels are not provided at the glamping accommodations, but for guests' convenience, there is the option to choose a bedding and towel package at a cost of £24.99.

There is a separate cost for the use of the hot tubs. Price is dependent on the number of guests (ranging from £60 to £75 for 1-2 nights).

On-site, guests can purchase a bag of logs for the fire pit for £6, as well as a barbecue starter kit for £9.99, which includes a five-kilo bag of charcoal, a pack of firelighters, and a box of large matches. These both must be ordered in advance; they cannot be ordered upon arrival.

Thanks to this property being a potato farm before branching out to the world of glamping, guests are able to purchase a sack of potatoes during or at the end of their stay.

Located in the north Essex town of St Osyth's, this property is perfect for those seeking an alternative staycation. It's less than half an hour to the historic town of Colchester, the oldest recorded town in England, and its Roman wall is still visible in some parts. There are also plenty of gorgeous areas of coastline nearby where guests can enjoy the peaceful English countryside.

Furthermore, it's just over an hour's train journey to London for a day of sightseeing in the capital.

The county’s gently rolling landscapes speckled with picturesque towns and villages have inspired a range of well-known artists, for example, Constable who is famous for his paintings of Dedham which is not far from St Osyth, and Wivenhoe, a quaint village nearby which offers beautiful views and is home to some beautiful pottery artists.

Vibrant seaside towns, such as Frinton and Walton, merge with quiet, isolated beaches that in turn become networks of tidal inlets and estuaries—rich in wildlife and perfect for a relaxing day out. The towns of Brightlingsea and Mersea offer lovely day trips, where guests can watch the local boats racing on a Sunday at Brightlingsea. They can also take a trip across the Strood to Mersea (watch out for high tide!) and go for a walk along the beach, all before enjoying some delicious fresh seafood from The Company Shed restaurant.
