Welcome to every angler’s paradise. With 6 fishing lakes, a river, and an idyllic location nestled between a nature reserve and Sherwood Forest, Hall Croft Fishery and Caravan Park is one of the UK’s premier fishing break destinations.
The lakes range from intimate ponds to one of the largest fishing lakes of its kind in the country, which has twice hosted the Fish-O-Mania Final. Each offers a different fishing experience and contains a unique selection of fish. Whatever your experience, ability, and preferred style of fishing, Hall Croft will cater for you. There are extra large platforms perfect for older and disabled anglers, shallows for beginners, the fast-flowing waters of the River Idle, and plenty of exciting options for those with experience.
You’ll find lots of great walking and cycling trails just beyond the park under the leafy canopies of Sherwood Forest and in the Idle Valley Nature Reserve, where you are likely to catch sight of magnificent birds including mallards, grebes, herons, kingfishers and woodpeckers. The Georgian elegance of Retford, a market town with two theatres, a museum and a great selection of independent shops and restaurants, lies just down the road.
Onsite, the Kingfisher Cafe & Bar is ready and waiting with tea, toast and cooked breakfasts in the morning, snacks whenever you’re peckish throughout the day, and cold beer, hearty meals, a dartboard and a pool table when you are ready to dine and unwind in the evening. The fully stocked Hallcroft Tackle Shop is open 7 days a week. Keep yourself connected using the free wi-fi available in the café and tackle shop.
Hall Croft Fishery and Caravan Park welcomes tents, tourers, caravans, and offers a fantastic selection of static caravans available for rent and purchase. The spacious 70 acre site includes a wonderful choice of lakeside touring pitches complete with electric hook-ups.
