About Southey Creek Glamping
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?

Southey Creek Glamping is located at Bramble Hall, Mundon Road, Mundon, Maldon, Essex CM9 6PN
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 Bramble Hall on the right.
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.
