Colehurst Lake

Colehurst Lake is the perfect place to escape, discover and unwind. Set in the idyllic and beautiful countryside of Shropshire we are surrounded by fields and woodland.

We wanted to set up ‘ready made’ tents to allow people to experience camping at its best, without having to buy and bring all of the gear – then set it all up!

The difference between us and other campsites is that we only allow a limited number of people on site at any one time and you will not be lined up next to lots of other campers.

Our aim is to provide a secluded location, allowing your to enjoy your own space, listening to the birds and watching the natural world around you.

We are family & dog friendly, but do not accept very large groups unless the venue is being hired as one booking.  We also have adult only weeks to cater for those wanting some child free time!   Please contact us with any enquiries.



The Family Tent

This family tent is in a lovely spot, backing on to the next door farmer’s field, is next to our main lake and overlooking Maylea Pool, it faces the evening sun as it sets behind the trees.

The woodland retreat was the latest pre-erected tent pitch, set up in 2020. Set up on the wooded bank, overlooking the main lake, this pitch is accessed up a wooden staircase and is nestled under the tree canopy, backing onto the neighbouring woodland.


Tree Tent & Teepee


The Tree Tent and Teepee was set up in 2020 and is nestled between the paddock and small pool. A small stream runs alongside the site with a small bridge giving you quick access to the small pool. This set up can sleep up to 8 people (Maximum 4 adults).


These tents come with almost everything you could possible need for an off grid camping trip.  The only thing you need to bring is bedding and your food & drinks.

We also have a limited number of ‘Bring Your Own Tent’ pitches these are as follows;

The long side of our lake has been landscaped to create a wide, flat grass bank which is perfect for camping.

(This is also available for hire for weddings / parties – please contact us for more information)

We only have two lakeside pitches available (contact us about group bookings where the whole lake could be booked).  One at each end of the lake so you will have no campers camping next to you.

We have a lovely little paddock which is nestled between our neighbour’s wood and our stream & woodland area and the neighbouring fishing lake.

This space is ideal for families, with a large green space away from the water, for smaller children to play safely.  We are also installing a new child’s play area during 2021, so you can sit outside your tent with a glass of wine in the sunshine, watching your little ones playing, enjoying the outside.


Colehurst lake, a family friendly Glamping, Wedding Venue & Fishery, is managed by Holly and Nick who will ensure your experience here is a pleasant and enjoyable one.
