Originally constructed as a rest room for weary anglers, the Fishermen's Rest had traditionally provided rest bite to our anglers for many years. In late 2023-4, we began the process of obtaining planning permission to convert the building in to a holiday cottage.

Planning permission was approved in May '24, we are now in the process of converting the building. The Fishermen's Rest is expected to open in late 2024. It will be a one bedroom, self catering cottage available to both anglers and non-anglers. Our location on London's doorstep is as unique as the outlook from the front door. Nestled amongst Epping Forest and the Lea Valley, the options for guests will be limitless. Whether you enjoy angling, walking, mountain biking or city breaks, we hope to create a truly unique experience for our guests.
