Set back from the main road at the end of a peaceful close in the pretty village of Gunthorpe, this site is part of a well-established fishery that has been popular with anglers all over the country for more than three decades. The lake was formed when gravel was dug to build the original Gunthorpe Bridge in 1875, and today it’s a popular 21-peg property with several varieties of coarse fish, including carp. All of this is free to enjoy for glamping guests.

The smart ensuite accommodation on offer here is equally enticing, with a comfy double bed, well-equipped kitchen, TV, bedding, and towels all coming as standard. Moving outside, there’s a spacious decking area with seating where you can soak up the peaceful atmosphere, and – arguably best of all – you have access to a private luxury hot tub just for the two of you.

Away from base, you can take a stroll down to the village’s handful of pubs and award-winning restaurants in just a few minutes, or alternatively drive a couple of miles north to Lowdham, where there are food shops and more eateries.

A well-maintained path runs along this stretch of the river Trent, opening up lots of opportunities for scenic cycling and walking from base. Other pleasant strolling spots such as Gedling Country Park (10 minutes’ drive) and Cotgrave Country Park (10 minutes) are within easy reach too, as are the serene surrounds of Holme Pierrepont Country Park (20 minutes), home to the ever-popular National Water Sports Centre.

Getting into the centre of Nottingham to see its castle or check out the shops is simple enough as well, as Peacock Lake Glamping is just over 20 minutes’ drive from the city centre. Alternatively, you can get there by bus from the village in about half an hour, or by train in about a quarter of an hour from Lowdham (connected to the village by an A road, but walking or cycling to the station is safe enough thanks to a segregated dual-use path).

Other options include Newark (30 minutes), a pretty market town with museums, monuments and lots of independent shops, and Southwell (15 minutes), where there’s a golf course, racecourse and handsome 900-year-old minster to explore.

On site there is a well stocked fishing lake that is purely for the private use of the guests. The lake is well stocked and a perfect haven for a ‘lazy day’ fishing.

All our glamping pods sleep 2 people. They are equipped with a full kitchen, Shower room and Central Heating. The concept was to provide a luxury feel in the pods throughout all of the seasons. Each of the pods has a hot tub and outside seating areas.


We are in the village of Gunthorpe.

Gunthorpe is located in the county of Nottinghamshire, East Midlands, three miles north-west of the town of Bingham, seven miles east of the major city of Nottingham, and 108 miles north of London. Gunthorpe lies seven miles north of the Leicestershire border. The first Gunthorpe bridge was built in 1875. Before this a ferry was the only means of crossing the river. It’s a busy lock and during the summer lots of boats can be seen moving through.
