Join Allens Caravans for a Spot of Fishing

  • 14th Aug 2018

Holidays are meant to be relaxing - a destination where you can go to unwind and forget about the trials and tribulations of everyday life. What better way to do just that than to take a nice quiet spot next to a lake, unpack your fishing gear and watch the world go by?

Here at Allens Caravans, our guests can do just that when they choose any of our caravan sites with fishing lakes. Some of the parks that include fishing facilities are:

  • Weir Meadow
  • Abbot's Salford
  • Severnside
  • Sunbeach
  • The Springs
  • Overstone Lakes

We encourage all of our guests, young and old, to sample fishing, regardless of whether you are a seasoned fisher or you don't know the difference between blade bait and buzz bait. Fishing is an activity for those looking to de-stress, kick back and take it easy or, in the name of healthy competition, catch the biggest fish!

Why Our Holiday Parks with Fishing Lakes are so Popular

With as many as 40 private fishing pegs when you visit Weir Meadow, located in Evesham, Worcestershire, our holiday parks lend themselves to a quaint experience ideal for anyone with a passion for fishing. Weir Meadow is a fantastic spot for barbel fishing due to the churn of the weir.

Whilst the fishers are reeling in the catch of the day, there are still plenty of other activities for those who may not be so keen about spending several hours riverside hoping for a bite. With children's facilities, arcades and easy transportation into nearby towns and cities, non-fishers need not feel compelled to sit on their phones all day, even if our caravan sites do offer free Wi-Fi.

Sea Fishing at Sunbeach

If traditional river fishing isn't for you, then why not take a trip to our popular Sunbeach site for your caravan fishing holidays? Here, you can throw your lines into the Irish Sea from our North Wales park, which makes for a spectacular setting in the summer. Some of the most common types of fish that can be caught here include trout, barbell, roundfish, flatfish and eel.

The beach is also a romantic setting, perfect for any couple looking for somewhere to intertwine romance and fishing. If you can find time in your schedule to spare from your favourite hobby, Sunbeach is located on the outskirts of Snowdonia National Park. Therefore, one of the most obvious tourist attractions nearby is Mount Snowdon, which can be climbed on foot or via the Snowdon Mountain Railway. However you choose to ascend Britain's tallest mountain, make sure to drop into the gift shop and take plenty of photographs to show your friends and family!

Luxury Fishing

At The Springs, located near the market town of Pershore, our guests can sample a slice of luxury at our environmentally friendly holiday park. Private lakes offer a fantastic fishing experience for those who want complete peace and quiet, while The Springs is also the only park under the Allens Caravans umbrella in which you can make the most of luxury lodge hire.

In between mornings and afternoons spent by the lakes fishing, take the opportunity to indulge in luxury and make the most of your holiday. The members club oversees a private eight-acre lake, while the park also houses a fantastic state-of-the-art heated swimming pool where you can relax and unwind. Exquisite scenery surrounds the park, making for beautiful landscapes that provide a gorgeous natural backdrop to your fishing holiday.

For those who prefer a more active lifestyle, The Springs is also home to various watersports activities. Take to the water and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Fishing All Year Round

When you stay with us for a week or two, it is only natural to wish that you could prolong the experience. Well, with the option to buy your own holiday home at our sites, you can pay us a visit anytime you like and allow us to host your fishing holiday anytime.

Fishing is one of those outdoor hobbies that you can enjoy all year round, whether the sun is shining or the rain is pouring. The true fisherman is not worried about mud or rain, as long as he or she sees the catch of the day in their net. With your own static caravan, you can come to us anytime.

Most of our parks are open 10 months of the year, closing during the winter months before reopening in spring. To put your mind at ease, our parks have a manager on site all year round, meaning that your caravan and any personal belongings will be safely looked after.

Don't Give Up After One Trip

Have you already tried your hand at fishing but failed to catch a single thing? If so, then keep plugging away, or try somewhere different. No two fishing holidays are the same and, like anything, fishing is a skill that is developed over time. It isn't uncommon for newbies not to catch anything on their first attempt because you could be doing it all wrong.

Fishing is a waiting game which, admittedly, is not for everyone. This is why fishing is often described as the perfect relaxing activity as it allows for plenty of time to kick back and relax. It could be the case that the bait you are offering simply isn't attracting the interest of the fish, or you may be scaring them away for any number of reasons.

Besides, it's not really about catching fish, is it? Whether it is a chance to catch up with friends and family, or the opportunity to be alone with your thoughts, the perfect fishing holiday will leave you feeling relaxed and ready to attack the week head on when you return home. That's if you do find yourself leaving our humble little sanctuary, of course.
