Lakeside Caravan Park & Coarse Fishery is a beautiful adult only holiday park found in 22 acres of the most beautifully landscaped Yorkshire countryside. The campsite has a wide range of touring pitches available, with 10 pitches available for motorhomes, 48 pitches for touring caravans, and 15 for tents. Serviced pitches are available.
This campsite doesn't allow children, but pets are welcome at Lakeside Caravan Park & Coarse Fishery. Dogs and their owners will have a fantastic dog-friendly camping holiday here, since the campsite has made a sizeable dog exercise area on the site. There are also miles of brilliant countryside for you to explore, with or without your dog.
This caravan park is within reach of a number of wonderful locations, but the attraction for many guests is the quiet and peaceful ambience that the park itself enjoys, owing to its seclusion from the surrounding area.
The centrepiece of the site is, of course, the six acre fishing lake, which is well stocked with a wide variety of coarse fish. So if you like to combine fishing holidays with your camping and caravan holidays in Yorkshire, this could be the campsite for you! Anglers can enjoy their favourite pastime here, at what is one of the most popular holiday parks in Yorkshire for fishing enthusiasts. Around the lake you'll find numerous pegs, that allow plenty of space afforded to everyone fishing on the lake at a given time.
Guests who like to do more than fish while staying at Lakeside Caravan Park & Coarse Fishery are also spoiled for choice. The immediate attraction that will strike guests is the surrounding views of the park. The countryside looks very inviting and is ideal for couples looking to take a romantic stroll together, or enjoy bicycle rides across the gentle terrain for a unique perspective on this part of the world.
Other places to visit in Yorkshire include the charming town of Pocklington, which is found a short drive away from the site. This little town is home to many local businesses, including pubs and eateries, and is definitely somewhere campsite guests are encouraged to spend some time looking around and exploring.
Holidaymakers staying at the park also have the famous east coast of England within easy reach. Visit Hornsea and Bridlington, two towns that have much to offer, with shops and a variety of cultural tourist attractions, combining with seaside town staples such as fish restaurants, parks, and of course sandy beaches to make for a perfect day out by the sea.
Such is the location of Lakeside Caravan Park & Coarse Fishery that there are plenty of opportunities for exploring the towns and cities of Yorkshire from the site. While there are many countryside towns and villages to explore quite close to the campsite, allow a day each when you visit the larger cities such as Hull, York, and Leeds. Each of these famous cities offer a variety of parks, shops, and culture that will leave you wishing you had more time to look around. If you only pick one city outing for your holiday, visit York. It's particularly popular with guests staying at the park, owing to its short distance away and the ease of taking public transport from close to the site.
Lakeside Caravan Park & Coarse Fishery is a wonderful place to make your base for exploring the Yorkshire countryside, coast and beyond.

After 9 hour journey the arrival at Lakeside was a welcome site. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the new wardens and shown to promised pitch location (right next to lake).Unfortuantely your caravan has to be positioned with the back of the caravan towards the lake so the view from your van is towards other caravans rather than the pleaseant view of the lake.
Our stay at Lakeside was for two weeks and, having booked from the internet, we were pleased with our selection. The site is, as previous reviewer stated, a quite site and adults only. The toilets are clean with other facilites up to an acceptable standard. Having a dog we were surprised that we were not allowed to walk the dog around the lake and had to use the caravan storage area to exercise the dog. Our stay was very enjoyable and the fishing was excellent with both caravaners and day fisherman bagging good catches.
Site does sell some fishing bait and expect the new wardens will increase the stock variety. Paying for fishing (£6 a day for those staying at the site) is made using an envelope system but was annoyed to have to pay £5 if you had been out for the day and only wanted to fish in the evening which was from 4.00pm to 7.30pm with only £6 for a full day.
There are a few seasonal caravans, position to the rear of the site, and many of the tourers were folk who kept their vans in storage at Lakeside and visited at weekends.
The village of Pocklington is only 4 miles away and has numerous shops including Sainsburys and Aldi as well as a cinema. You have to go to York for any fishing tackle (I recommend York Tackle - 10 miles). There are numerous pubs in the area which serve food.
Overall an excellent stay with everyone on site (both wardens and fellow caravanners)very friendly. We do plan to return for another stay in the future and certainly recommend this site if you like a quite site and fishing.

Ideal for anglers, but pretty good for anybody wanting a quiet weekend break in the van, Lakeside Caravan Park is a nicely kept site set around a handsome six-acre fishing lake.
I visited in December 2008 on a very crisp, cold day and the site looking great. I was in one of the few hardstanding pitches overlooking the lake, to the left of the reception building as you enter. The washrooms were warm, clean and well equipped and the wooden reception building looked new and kept a modest stock of essentials so you don't need to go into town if you need a pint of milk. The site is an adult-only facility and day visitors are allowed onto the site to fish, but they don't really come that near to the touring caravans and have their own toilet and changing facilites.
If you are the sort of person who is happy to read, sit outside the van, take a gentle stroll and generally make your entertainment, this is a nice little site. If you like to fish, it is great.
