The Best Static Caravans on Fishing Lakes

A fishing holiday can be great way to disconnect and take a relaxing break in the countryside. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned fisherman looking for a challenge you can find a fishing lake to suit you. A self-catered static caravan is the perfect accommodation choice if you love fishing in the outdoors but don’t want to sleep in it! There are many parks offering static caravans on fishing lakes, with facilities catering to several styles of holiday, so grab your bait and tackle and book your getaway today.

Penvose Farm, Cornwall

This small working farm is just a few miles from Cornish beaches, and features three coarse fishing lakes, at penvose-farm.co.uk. With a children’s play area, you could combine a fishing trip with your family holiday. A two bedroom caravan starts at £265 per week in the off-season and £295 per week in late spring to early autumn. A three bedroom caravan costs £5 more per week. Static caravan residents can enjoy the lakes free of charge. There are also two day-ticket fishing lakes nearby, at Porth Reservoir and Gwinear.
