  • Angling site in a peaceful rural setting in the Isle of Axhome
  • A 15-minute drive from Gainsborough and 35 from Doncaster
  • Two coarse fishing lakes: land carp, roach and tench
As its name so handily suggests, Oak Tree Holiday Park and Fishery is a site with provisions for people who like to spend their time angling. Set in rural north Lincolnshire and surrounded by open countryside, this park has two coarse fishing lakes where guests can get in trawling time. The fishery has a snake lake in a canal style suitable for pole fishing, and a main lake in a circular design with a central island and 26 pegs. Species to land include carp and F1 carp, with a smaller smattering of roach, tench and crucian carp as well (please note that night fishing is not allowed, and all anglers will be asked to show a valid licence before they're allowed to fish; no licence, no fishing…) If you’re not just heading here to reel in some underwater critters, the Isle of Axhome location is well placed for explores (how handy if you're the non-fishing one of a couple…). Humberhead Peatlands National Nature Reserve is 20 minutes’ drive away for moorland walks with the chance of spotting birds of prey, and you can see more exotic beasts at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, 25 minutes away. The minster and Roman walls of Doncaster are 35 minutes' drive away. Sights ticked off, return home to settle on a pitch adjacent to both lakes, on flat and well-drained land with scenic countryside views. Amenities include a brick toilet block with separate facilities for ladies, gents and disabled guests, and the site also has chemical disposal. Life at Oak Tree is all very peaceful so it's best suited to couples'/family retreats and not a spot for the party animals.

Helen B. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Adults over 45 only electric optional grass and gravel touring pitch (adults only)

Liked: From the moment we arrived we had the best welcome. The lady that greeted us was so kind and helpful and popped by for a chat later the same day to make sure we were OK. The site is beautiful with well laid out and tended grass areas next to the two lakes. The plot we were on was perfect and all the surrounding areas were tidy and well kept. Quiet place to stay and pitch pretty much level. The path in and out was level and had obviously had time spent on making it excellent to travel down. Overall we just can't fault this venue. Tidy, clean and very welcoming. If we pass by again we will certainly return.

Liked: Loved our stay. Thank you to Bill and the lady across the way. Without them we wouldn't have been able to set the awning up (windy and we are still novices). Nice clean and quite site. Fishing was epic. Well worth taking my gear. Will definitely be back.

From the manager: It was wonderful having you both! We strive to make every stay memorable, and your show was certainly unforgettable with that wind. We're delighted that you enjoyed the fishing, and Albert is truly a sweetheart. Please come again, as we eagerly anticipate creating more cherished memories together. Safe travels!

From the manager: Good evening Keren, Well what a unrealistic review from you, we did have places for you but you wanted to be away from anyone, so with all the weather /rain and the size of your Motorhome you had the whole of the paddock field to choose from, you came to me on the first morning saying the noise was disturbing you, which was the system to break down the toilet water which is envoiroment friendly small humming noise, so I said you have the pick of the place, so you went on the back away from everyone ,about the electric, yes I asked you to be considerate when using the electric as you get 10 units per day which is plenty, please do not leave your motor home with electric heating on and leave it all day when you are away for the day, you said don’t worry we use gas, I again said well you have 250 units for the 25 days you are booked on, But because you went far away from any of our metered electric I did ask to be aware of the electric. Due to the high cost . This was just a request to be mindful. Toilets are cleaned, and with only a few people on site at this time of year they really don’t get used, but still got checked every other day. I helped you and sorted extra electric cable because you wanted to be far away from an electric box. We allowed you to have your own space, when other guests walked round you were very rude to them, you also had a cat which you never said you had. To be fair you are looking for a residential park not a holiday park, as you were using the holiday park like it was your back garden, when I talked to you you never once said anything was wrong and you agreed with the electric reassuring we always use gas bottle refillable ones, so really does not make sense on your review. Shame you could not address this with us while you stayed with us, or on your departure when you had nice things to say about the place, or when you came down and talked to me, I saw you a few time while you stayed with us.We hope you have a wonderful time exploring various campgrounds! Enjoy your travels and best wishes for a fantastic journey.. Little advice Keren, Try and talk to your next wardens with your concerns and give them a chance to rectify your issues while on site as we are in the hospitality industry, we cant deal with it if we dont know what the problems are,We delivered on both of your requests, going above and beyond to find the quietest location away from people. What more could you ask for?

Local attractions

Gainsborough’s medieval old hall and heritage centre, along with its model railway, are 15 minutes' drive from the site, while the Trolley Bus Museum – the world’s biggest collection of such – is 20 minutes away for travel-related diversions. And if you’re one for even older forms of transport? The horses at Doncaster Racecourse are 30 minutes from the park. Further afield, drive for 50 minutes or so to tramp around the pretty village of Tealby (stopping for scones and a cuppa at the famed Vintage Tea Rooms), or across the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Natural Beauty. Access the Wolds from Walesby (55 minutes), taking time for a roam around Walesby forest or some outdoor adventuring via the forest activity centre. For urban activities York is an hour and 10 minutes away, a city where you can stretch your legs on the surrounding ancient walls, set off on shopping expeditions in the boutiques of the Shambles neighbourhood, or go back in time even further at the Jorvik Viking Centre.
