Kick off your shoes, feel at home and discover the power of peace at Campion Lodge. Here, only the birds and your bubbling hot tub disturb the silence …
Campion Lodge is a luxury 5 AA star self-catering lodge near Wakes Colne, a village in the breath-taking Colne Valley on the Essex and Suffolk border.
But the real playground is the 500 acres of private grounds with woodlands and two acre fishing lake stocked with carp and rudd. A haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers, you may even catch a glimpse of a kingfisher. Your furry friends will love it too – the woods with its little stream are pooch perfect for sniffing and moseying about in.
Set at the end of a mile long private driveway, our bolthole for a cosy couple is tucked away in an ancient meadow in undulating countryside, where in decades gone by heavy horses, cattle and sheep would have grazed.
Five-star is par for the course at Campion Lodge. Beautifully decorated and spacious, you’ll be wowed as soon as you open the front door. The state of the art lodge boasts the very best of open plan living. Cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen, watch Netfiix on the bespoke sofas and enjoy the latest technology.
Sleep like kings and queens in the sumptuous bedroom. The spacious en suite bathroom has an enormous tub and its shower is walk in heaven.
Flip open the French doors, let in a breeze and toast the wonderful views across the lake and the open countryside. Make the most of the inviting hot tub on the south facing veranda. A great treat after a long day exploring the Essex countryside.
