Patsy's lakeside sleeps 3 glamping pod

Sleeps 3
1 Bedroom

Located on a popular yet peaceful leisure angling and glamping site, on the banks of a mature reed-fringed carp fishing lake, this large insulated glamping pod is simply furnished with a Kingsize bed, single bed, table and chairs, equipped with solar lighting and device charging, and benefits from an exclusive barbecue area and outdoor seating.

Although the accommodation itself is 'offgrid ', all guests have unrestricted access to the three lakes, flush toilets, shower, and washing up area (with hot and cold water).

The lake itself is home to an impressive head of king carp (commons and mirrors, to 42lbs+), with fishing available at an extra charge to experienced carp anglers for an additional fee, on a 'waking-hours only' basis.. There is a well-stocked tackle and bait shop onsite. Carol’s Kitchen offers hot and cold snacks and meals throughout the day. And a takeaway food delivery service is available, seven evenings a week.

Rum Bridge is situated in the historic market town of Clare, Suffolk, within easy driving distance of Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, and the Suffolk coast. The town itself is home to a wealth of shops, cafes, pubs and eateries, as well as a 13th century Augustinian Priory, Clare Country Park, the stone keep ruins of Clare Castle, a medieval church and museum.

Although, for security reasons, the gates are locked at dusk, guests are provided with the gate lock combination, enabling you to come and go as you please.

To make Rum Bridge as affordable as possible, we allow guests to book our accommodation only, and to supply their own bedding, towels, etc. We also offer an optional bedding package – including sheets, pillows, a duvet and cover – on request; together with the following options and extras, all of which are designed to make your break as relaxing and enjoyable as possible…

**Cook tent**

Our purpose-designed cook tents can be pitched next to your accommodation, and feature twin-burner gas stoves with grill, kettle, cookware, crockery and a large container of fresh water.

**BBQ / firepit package**

Guests who prefer to dine al fresco may wish to rent a fire pit with grill or BBQ, which can be supplied with either logs and kindling or charcoal, tongs, skewers, matches, firelighters and even a bag of marshmallows.

**BBQ food packs**

Why waste a moment of your stay stalking the supermarket aisles, when you can have a mouth-watering barbecue pack – including a selection from; locally reared pork sausages, ribs, burgers, chicken, kebabs, rolls and salad – ready and waiting in your cool box?

**Double tent hire with beds**

Expecting company? Our extra-large sleeps-two ‘high top’ bivvies with ultra-comfortable ‘wideboy’ beds are available to hire in advance of your stay.

**Angling permits**

Although overnight fishing is not permitted from Patsy's Pod, day-fishing permits are available to experienced carp anglers for an additional fee, allowing you to target the lake’s unrivalled stock of specimen fish. And fishing on the adjacent Moat Lake is also available at a discounted rate.

**IMPORTANT: please remember, Rum Bridge is entirely ‘off-grid’, meaning the quality of lighting – both in the pods and tents, and site-wide - will vary with the prevailing conditions.**
