Fishing Holidays - Coarse & Sea Angling

Park Holidays UK have 24 Caravan Holiday Parks across the South of England including Devon, Essex, Dorset, Kent, Hampshire, Suffolk and Sussex. Many are set in beautiful locations close to the sea - so sea fishing is available immediately from the edge of the park or nearby. In addition, many parks have carp and coarse fishing either in lakes on the park, or nearby rivers or lakes.

Whatever type of fishing you are looking for - we can find you a UK holiday park that has angling opportunities to suit your needs. Some of our holiday parks have carp fishing lakes - with carp to well over 40lbs in one case. Others offer general coarse fishing - with occasional matches for you to test your skills. 

Fishing Requirements

Please note that UK rod licenses are required where ever you fish on UK inland waterways. Fishing in the lakes on any holiday park normally requires a day ticket to be purchased for a small price - details from each holiday park reception.

We have five South Devon Caravan Holiday Parks all close to the shore for great sea fishing - Landscove & Riviera Bay, Brixham, Devon.  Waterside at Paignton, Devon and at Dawlish Warren, Devon we have Golden Sands and Dawlish Sands. The South Devon coast offers good sea fishing for bass, mackerel, wrasse and other fish. The estuaries are great for mullet fishing - something coarse anglers often want to try out on a seaside holiday. But if you want coarse fishing, Golden Sands has a small coarse fishing take with carp, tench, roach, rudd and crucian carp. Or you could choose from other Devon carp and coarse fisheries

Sandhills Holiday Park, Christchurch, Dorset lies next to Mudeford Quay by the Christchurch Harbour and with Avon Beach to the front - quite a setting!
