Trees around the pitches

General

  • Peaceful fishing site with 10 match and pleasure lakes
  • Leading coarse fishery with over 400 pegs and national competition
  • North York Moors and Harrogate within a half-hour drive

Game, set and… match.

If you're a serious angling aficionado, The Oaks Lakes Caravan Park at Sessay in North Yorkshire is just the ticket: it's adjacent to a whopping 10 match and pleasure lakes making up one of the best-known coarse fisheries in the north.

Fish to cast off for at The Oaks Lake include carp, tench, bream, roach, rudd, gudgeon, perch, barbel, ide, crucian, carb, golden tench and golden orfe – and the park also has a specimen fishing lake with grass carp to 25lbs, ghost carp to 26lbs and common mirrors to 28lbs. Site guests can buy reduced fishing day tickets at the side of the lake on the day they're angling to get started.

The Oaks doesn't have fishing equipment for hire, but if you want to add to your kit, a fully-stocked on site tackle shop is there to cater to your needs – next door to a café serving hot and cold food.

And if you're not a serious angling aficionado (either a beginner or a non-fishing type)? There's plenty here for you too: the site is in pole position for all sorts of off-site exploring, as it has easy access to the A1 and A19 and is handily placed for the gorgeous North York Moors, lots of country estates and the north's main towns and cities including York, Leeds and Harrogate.

Pitches are set in a four-acre field with easy access to the fishing lakes. A toilet block with separate ladies', gents' and disabled-friendly facilities is next to the field, along with a screened chemical disposal point; the site also has a free hot shower.

Finally, as it's a peaceful park set up for fishing, The Oaks doesn't allow rowdy guests and accepts adults only.

Please note

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    Easy to find location, A19 or A1(M). Friendly and welcoming staff. Great pitches easy pegging ground and well kept. Site facilities well kept and cleaned regularly in line with current covid19 guidelines. Lovely peaceful spot made ofr a restful break away (first time off since Xmas 2019) so was it was very much needed, the site is managed very professionally and we are seasoned campers who have stayed at more expensive sites which were no where near as good or nice. Looking forward to booking again. 👍🏻

    Lovely site as a whole. Very easy to check in via telecom to reduce contact with staff. The facilities were cleaned regularly to a very high standard and we’re very modern. Hand gel was available to use before and after entering the facilities. It was clearly signposted around where contact may occur and a queuing system for showers, toilets etc was in place. The grounds were very well maintained and although I wasn’t fishing, the lakes and surrounding areas looked very well kept. Beautiful scenery. Will definitely be visiting again. 10/10.

An abundance of stately homes, castles, abbeys and historic houses is also in the area, such as Castle Howard, Helmsley Castle, Beningbrough Hall, Newby Hall, Duncombe Park and the abbeys of Byland, Rievaulx and Fountains. All are within 30 minutes' drive of Sessay.
