About Southey Creek Glamping

Suitable For

Glampers, adults – yes. Campers, caravans, motorhomes, children, dogs – no.


The farm is on the edge of the village of Mundon where there’s a pub, a listed church and a “petrified” oak forest. You can walk two and a half miles into the historic maritime town of Maldon where there are lots of shops, cafés and a couple of museums. The big attraction is Hythe Quay where distinctive red-sailed Thames Barges offer trips along the River Blackwater. There are also lots of annual events here including the well-known Maldon Mud Race, usually held in late spring. New Hall vineyard (01621 828343) is just three miles from site in the village of Purleigh and offers guided tours and tasting. There is also a Museum of Power, five miles away at Langdon (01621 843183), and the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden at Hyde Hall (01245 402113), nine miles from Southey Creek Glamping and the Tiptree Jam Museum and tea room (01621 815407), 11 miles away (because you can't have a jam museum without having a good tea rooms with it too).

Food & Drink

You can pre-order breakfast and barbecue packages full of local produce to be in your pod on arrival (extra cost). The closest pub is The White Horse in Mundon (01621 740276) an easy countryside stroll away. There are lots of places to eat, drink and buy supplies in Maldon, under three miles away, including a choice of two micropubs which both brew their own beers, the Farmers Yard (01234 567890) and The Mighty Oak (01621 843713), and The Queens Head, which offers a seasonal menu and views of passing barges. The Bell in Purleigh (three miles away; 01621 828348) is another recommended pub serving food and there’s a lovely little community shop there with heaps of local produce. For a cream tea, where better than the tea rooms at the Tiptree Jam Museum?

More than 5 stars!

Where do I start? We arrived at Southey Creek Glamping, (which is super easy to find) and Julie - the host- welcomed us with a smile and a quick chat, making us feel at home immediately. The pod is the best I have ever seen amongst my glamping experiences ! Love the en suite bathroom and the fact that the pod has everything you need, a fridge freezer, a little oven and hobs as well as a bbq! I don't think it could've been any cleaner, which is really a huge plus for me. It's a perfect spot if you just want to recharge after a tough week and only listen to the sound of nature. The towns nearby are lovely, very quiet and with good food. There are several pubs and plenty of places to shop for food. Julie is fantastic, you know that she is around the corner if you need her but at the same time you won't see her ever (unless you call her of course ! ). I will definitely return !!!

Response from Southey Creek Glamping

Margherita & J. Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so pleased you enjoyed staying with us, and really thrilled you loved our pods (and how clean they were too, as we like to make sure they are spotless for each guest). It was fantastic to meet you both and enjoyed chatting to you too! Would love to see you both again soon. Julie & Crispin

Lovely pod

This place is so good I almost don't want to share it with other people! Our pod looked impecable, warm and cosy (unlike a random hotel room). The kitchen is fully equipped, there is always hot water and the hot towel rack helped us dry our wet shoes in no time. I loved the fact that recycling bins are provided. There is enough space for two adults to feel comfortable. There is enough space between pods to get a feeling of intimacy. Outside the pod you can enjoy a bbq or sunbathe if you are lucky. The owners are also far enough to make you feel comfortable, but close enough in case you need help. They made themselves available at any time, and they put together a pack with all needed info. There is a large well stocked supermarket in the area. Suitable for couples holidays away from the city noise.

Getting There

From Chelmsford, take the A414 towards Maldon. After about nine miles, on the outskirts of Maldon, at the roundabout take the third exit on to the B1018, Limebrook Way. Go straight over at the next roundabout and take the third exit at the next one on to Mundon Road. After about a mile, look out for the large Bramble Hall sign on the left (between houses). Follow the driveway.

The closest railway station is at Hatfield Peverel which is connected to Chelmsford (six minutes away), London Liverpool Street (40 minutes away) and Ipswich (40 minutes away). From there, it’s advisable to book a taxi for the onward journey as there’s no direct public transport route. There is a bus stop a few hundred metres from the driveway which links with Maldon and Chelmsford, via the number 31 bus by First Group.
