  • Kingfishers Nest


Kingfishers Nest is the second of our cabins, built in 2020 and part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The cabin is approached down a country track and offers epic accommodation right on the edge of one of our hidden lakes in the Colne Valley, surrounded by woodland offering wonderful views in a peaceful location. 

Situated close to Colchester with thriving high street and a stunning castle, the property is in the heart of the Essex countryside. Take a trip on the Colne Valley Stream Railway, or visit Colchester Zoo, Layer Marney Tower, and the gate house to what would have been Henry VIII royal residence. No trip to Essex would be complete without a trip to the coast, Frinton on Sea, Clacton or cross the strood to Mersea Island famous for Rock Oysters, great seafood restaurants and sailing. For shopping head to Colchester and Freeport at Braintree. Leisure facilities: fishing is available by arrangement with the owner.

The accommodation offers the perfect spot for a couples retreat: 1 bedroom with a double bed and bath, overlooking the lake.Shower room: with shower, WC and Bramley toiletries.Lounge/kitchen/diner: with TV. Kitchen area, with electric oven and hob, fridge.Outside: decked area with garden furniture, sauna and hot tub.  Amenities: off-road parking. Bed linen, towels, electric, electric heating and air conditioning included.

Please note the property is situated on an unfenced lake so care should be taken at all times.

Dogs are charged per dog at £30.00.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

The nearest post code (CO6 2PP) will bring you to a van garage called Colne Commercials on the A1124. Before you reach this garage on your left, you will see the entrance to a field with a large grey gate. Once through the gates come down the track and at the end you will veer around to the right and then head through a small woodland where you will find the cabin. If there is another gate closed then please go through and close behind you so the sheep don’t make a run for it!

Public Transport Directions

50 minute train from London to "Marks Tey" station, or 20 minute drive from Colchester.
