The reason, it believes, is that the company’s 23 parks in the South of England offer an unparalleled choice of angling opportunities for fishing fans of all abilities.

Add to this the availability of top-quality accommodation at value prices, plus the promise of family fun for everyone, and there’s little reason for anglers to cast around anywhere else.

From beautiful carp lakes to deep sea fishing, there are opportunities for fishing guests to test their skills against a wide range of different challenges.

Angling is available on many of the parks themselves where well-stocked and carefully managed lakes are maintained for holidaymakers to enjoy.

And in counties such as Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Essex and Suffolk, the group has parks just minutes from both inland waters and the coast for shore, pier and boat fishing.


From beautiful carp lakes to deep sea fishing, there are opportunities for fishing guests to test their skills against a wide range of different challenges.

Affordable prices

With short break prices from just £69.00 for a whole family staying three or four nights in a caravan holiday home, exploring a variety of different parks is an affordable option.

That price also includes use of the park’s swimming pool and other leisure facilities, as well as the professional nightly entertainment for which Park Holidays UK is renowned.

It means that they and their families can enjoy year-round breaks and longer stays without the need to book ahead, and can just take off at a moment’s notice if the weekend weather is looking good.

The holiday home can also be used to store some items of fishing equipment and other kit, meaning that the car boot won’t have to be bulging with tackle on every visit.

Prices of brand new caravan holiday homes start from just £15995.00, and each home comes fully furnished and smartly decorated, including a kitchen fitted with modern appliances.

Pre-owned holiday homes in first-class condition can also be had from around £8995.00 including 2013 pitch fees.

Second income

There’s even a chance for owners to create a second income from the holiday home by renting it out to other people on the occasions when it’s not needed by them.

Using Park Holiday UK’s managed letting scheme, all arrangements are taken care of by the group from advertising and booking to cleaning and change-overs.

Chichester Lakeside Holiday Park in West Sussex where 150 acres of prime fishing lakes are set against a beautiful rural backdrop.Every angler will have his or her idea of a perfect park for fishing breaks, and Park Holidays UK certainly provides a wide choice of delightful locations.

One park with a very loyal following among fresh water enthusiasts is Coghurst Hall Holiday Park in Hastings where an historic carp lake provides a thrilling centrepiece to the grounds.

The lake was subject to a massive restocking earlier this year of mainly mirror and ghost carp.

The new arrivals joined many more mature specimens in the beautiful four-acre lake, including a substantial number weighing in at over 30lb.

Last year’s prize catch by a holiday guest tipped the scales at an impressive 38lb 12oz.

Great challenge

Coghurst Hall’s picturesque waters have provided a first-class challenge for anglers for over two centuries – but for much of this time, fishing here has been the preserve of a privileged few.

Now, however, those hoping to net a record-breaker need only be a guest of the park – either staying in one of the park’s rented caravan holiday homes, or as one of the park’s holiday home owners.

Fishing at Steeple BaySet in hundreds of acres of historic woodland with an imposing 18th Century manor house as its centrepiece, Coghurst Hall has long been a draw for people who take their leisure seriously.

Today, the options for relaxation have been widened more than ever by Park Holidays UK, and include a Romanesque leisure pool as well as a sauna and spa bath.

There’s also a superb clubhouse where professional cabaret shows are held every night in season, plus good value restaurants and bars, and endless activities and entertainment for children.

But it is the magnificent fishing lake – one of three lakes in the grounds – which provide the main lure for many guests, be they experienced anglers or youngsters learning the skill from a parent.

Liquid assets

This most recent re-stocking is part of a continual investment in the lake by Park Holidays UK which this year will also include further upgrades to the fishing swims around the banks.

Rye HarbourCoghurst Hall’s greatest strength is to be able to offer an assurance of never-a-dull moment for all family members.

Not only does the park itself provide a long list of attractions, but it’s also just a short distance from a whole host of amazing days out, from seasides to zoos and gorgeous countryside.

So if one member of the family wants to spend the day locked in battle with the lake’s carp, the rest will find that there are plenty of other diversions to get hooked on.

Other Park Holidays UK parks with fishing available in the grounds include Oaklands Holiday Park near the Essex village of St Osyth where a picturesque lake is home to a range of different species.

Popular too with angling guests is Chichester Lakeside Holiday Park in West Sussex where 150 acres of prime fishing lakes are set against a beautiful rural backdrop.

As with Coghurst Hall, holiday homes at Oaklands and Chichester Lakeside are available right up to the water’s edge.
