Coarse fishing at the Best of British Parks

You wont have to travel far to indulge in a spot of coarse fishing when camping or caravanning this year, as many of our Best of British parks have a lake onsite. What could be better than waking up and heading straight to the bank knowing you have the luxury of the holiday parks facilities close by!

 

There are nine fishing lakes at Eye Kettleby Lakes, each providing something different. They are stocked with a variety of species, including roach, tench, bream and specimen carp to 30lb. The majority of the lakes are situated on the edge of the park, providing a quiet and peaceful place to escape and unwind and concentrate on a day of fishing. Kingfisher Lake boasts swims right on the doorstep of Eye Kettleby Lakes luxury lodges, enabling an exclusive fishing experience! It is also possible to book a fishing lesson to help hone your skills.

Riverside Caravan Park is the perfect place to stay for any avid coarse angler. There are two options to try depending on your preference, either river or lake fishing. Enjoy a day spent on the banks of the River Wenning fishing for salmon, brown trout and sea trout or escape to one of 12 pegs spread along the lake and try your hand at catching roach, rudd or carp.

Spend quality family time together during your stay at the Old Brick Kilns catching bream, rudd or carp. Purchase either a day or week ticket and spend as much or as little as your holiday as you would like trying to catch a big one!
