Hallcroft Fishery and Caravan Park: Hardstanding pitch with lake views

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

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The restaurant is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

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

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

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

Good for fishing but not for camping/touring. A caravan metropolis01/01/2022

  • Liked: 

    Lake View, EHU, Drinking water, Elysian point (once we found it), Fishing available

    Disliked: 

    No directions on arrival, Muddy, Poor pitch access, no reception or staff, Muddy toilet blocks, Sewage smell.

    Upon arrival the gates and reception were closed, even though we arrived an hour before the specified 19:00 check in. Via intercom, we were told to “drive to the bottom and pitch where we liked”.
    This is where the fun began! Following the road down we soon realised that finding a “hardstanding pitch with EHU” was going to be like finding a waterfall in the Gobi desert. We did come across another human, who was also lost and looking for he’s waterfall. We exchanged intel but ultimately both realised it was pointless.
    I believe they gave up and escaped while they could.
    We however, stuck with it, due to having 2 young children and had already travelled 4 hours and still 3 hours from home. We eventually found a small gravel patch surrounded by mud and nestled between the lakes and stationary caravans. We concluded this must be a pitch. After parking, hooking up electric and cooking some soup for the kids the spot actually was half pleasant. Finding the Elysian point was a whole other expedition which proved challenging, but ultimately, once again worked out ok in the end.
    I feel this site is great for fishing visits or if you want to waste your pension on a massive stationary metal shed, but not a campervan/Motorhome site.

    PS.. “Top Tip” hold your breath on the drive in, the smell of human waste will make even the hardiest of people retch. Even my dogs eyes twitched (the poor sod doesn’t even have any thumbs to hold his nose)

    They had no record of my booking. Was eventually just told to find any hardstanding pitch and to hope it's not booked out! Cafe/restaurant/bar that was supposed to be open all year round, did not open once while we were there. Quite disappointing.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

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 (16.7 kilometers)
  • Bolsover Castle (25.7 kilometers)
  • Mansfield Museum (27.2 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Clumber Park (10.9 kilometers)
