General

  • Angling site with six lakes and the River Idle alongside
  • Regular match venue for coarse fishing, 30 minutes from Sherwood
  • Tackle shop, central amenities and café and licensed restaurant

Spectacular fishing with mighty scenic views... cast off at Nottinghamshire's Hallcroft Fishery and Caravan Park for angling in seven waters on a spacious and well-equipped park.

Six lakes are at your fishing disposal here, along with yet more angling in the River Idle which runs alongside the site. You can land bream, eels, roach, tench, perch and varying types of carp at these, including at the huge Moat lake which is a regular venue for matches around its 190 pegs; if you fancy your hand at procuring pike, the river's the place to be. And if you need tackle, kit, bait or any angling advice, a shop for the same is right on site.

Hallcroft is two and a half miles from East Retford, about 40 minutes' drive from Newark and half an hour from Sherwood Forest. You can stay solely on site should you so wish: the Kingfisher café and restaurant dishes up full English breakfasts, tea, coffee and toast to sort sustenance before a day's fishing; hot snacks are available some lunchtimes, and evening meals are on offer for after your angling. The restaurant is licensed, to serve boozy beverages during standard pub hours, and a pool table and darts board are to hand too.

There are showers and toilets in the centre of the site, part of a good range of amenities including recycling, chemical disposal, a washing-up area and gas cylinder sales.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

    Beautiful lakes, children & hubby enjoyed fishing the well stocked ponds. Excellent fishing shop on site. Good location, short drive to Retford.

    Disliked: 

    Arrived on 23rd Aug at 17.40 shop closed, no one at the house. Had pre booked site. Had to find a space with electric hook up & hope for the best! Went to the shop on site the next day they weren’t interested where we was sited.
    Toilets/showers/wash basins all in one cubicle (only 5 I think in total for a large site) Absolutely filthy, unsure when they were last cleaned.
    No bins apart from at the shop on site which is about 1/2 mile from the touring site. This is also where you empty your toilet from the caravan, so a very long walk there & back!!!
    Our pitch overlooked a beautiful lake, but unfortunately on the other side of it was a large pile of rubbish (think they were getting ready for bonfire night!!)
    Site full of transit vans pulling caravans.
    This site clearly just focuses on the fishing & the caravan site is just a way of earning extra money.

    Lovely views of surrounding fishing lakes.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet and showering facilities. They need attending twice daily as they kept running out of toilet paper and the shower drainage was terrible. I had to walk through someone else’s shower water to use the toilet and it’s a shame because everything else was spot on. If the facilities improved we’d stay and recommend at the moment we wouldn’t sadly.

    Being scammed, wasn’t told that all 6 lakes were booked for matches, despite being face to face with site manager several times. We booked purposely to fish and couldn’t.

Local attractions

After your angling, take the kids to Sundown Adventureland (20 minutes' drive), a theme and play park for under-10s with rides and attractions of all sorts including an intriguingly-named ostrich safari ride. (You may or may not opt to let the kids know a pet shop is at the park too...)

For a calmer time, the National Trust and Grade I-listed Clumber Park is 25 minutes from Hallcroft, for peaceful potters around its 3,800 acres. It's the former home of the Duke of Newcastle, so ponder on how the other half live during your scenic strolls, or hire a bike to pedal around the woodland and lake.

National Cycle Route 6 connects Clumber Park with fab Sherwood Forest, along a path of almost seven miles. If you'd prefer to stay closer to home, Hallcroft is next to the biking and hiking of the Idle Valley Nature Reserve, an excellent birdwatching spot.

Must see

  • Sherwood Forest Country Park (10.4 miles)
  • Bolsover Castle (16.0 miles)
  • Mansfield Museum (16.9 miles)

  • Clumber Park (6.8 miles)
