Adults-only fishing in the Fens, all year round, on a luxury park surrounded by peace and quiet – it’s enough to have you hooked.
Fields End Water near March in Cambridgeshire has been described as ‘one of the best’ by avid anglers who have cast off on a camping holiday there: it has two acclaimed fishing lakes (the Pit and the Pool) crammed with carp, tench, perch, barbell, chubb, orfe and roach, and guests can bag bait suitable for the lakes in the site shop (as well as other essentials like ice-cream and sweets).
Not reely into fishing, but brought to Fields End Water to accompany a fishy other half? No floundering necessary for angling widow/ers either: this is a scenic and well-sited park for those who want to ramble around the flat Fens countryside or use it as base to explore Cambridgeshire – and as it’s adults-only and well away from the noise of main roads and flight paths, it’s pretty peaceful too.
And, as long as he’s quiet when you’re trying to land a catch, the dog can come with you: the park says it’s ‘extremely dog-friendly’ and it has suitable walkies around the fishing lakes and the five-acre wood, miles of footpaths from it leading into the Fens, bins on site for scooped poop, and even a water bowl at reception for thirsty mutts.
Pitches come with electric hook-up and are close to the fishing lakes and the main facilities: a clean, warm and roomy shower and loo block, laundry room and washing up area.
Foodwise, Doddington village is about forty minutes’ walk away and has a tip-top fish and chip shop. The local Chinese takeaway will also deliver their large and tasty portions directly to the park. There are several farmers’ markets in the area to pick up your own produce:
Ely, on the second and fourth Saturday of the month
Huntingdon on alternate Fridays
St Ives on the first and third Saturday of each month
Ramsey on the fourth Saturday of each month
St Neots on each month’s second and fourth Saturday.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

As well as the farmers’ markets, Cambridgeshire has local markets to browse, in towns with nifty sightseeing and activities for afters.
