Laid-back in Lin­colnshire Sy­camore Farm, close to the coast and stuffed with fish T

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

HE coast around Skegness is a fa­mous fish­ing hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion with dozens of fish­eries dot­ted around the area.

Many of­fer hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion to cater for the de­mands of hordes of vis­it­ing spring and sum­mer an­glers – and at Sy­camore Farm Park you’ll strug­gle to find a bet­ter site for both fish­ing and the over­all hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence.

Sited in Burgh-le-Marsh just off the busy A158 road to Skegness, hus­tle and bus­tle is the last thing you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence. The sprawl­ing 14-acre site is sur­rounded by the Lin­colnshire Wolds and wood­lands to make your fish­ing trip a tran­quil, laid-back affair.

Sy­camore has two lakes, nei­ther of which carry a name, but both are stuffed with fish to of­fer plenty of bites through­out the day. Early and late of­fers the very best of the sport with carp, tench, roach and rudd the dom­i­nant species. Bread is a pop­u­lar bait but just a few pints of mag­gots will give you all the ac­tion you could ever ask for.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion is just as im­pres­sive, and at rea­son­able rates too, with two Fish­er­man’s Cot­tages of two and three bed­rooms. A tour­ing pitch for tents and car­a­vans of­fers elec­tric hook-ups plus 10 static car­a­vans. Five of these have dou­ble glaz­ing and cen­tral heat­ing, but no pets are al­lowed.

The re­main­ing five are dou­ble glazed and al­low small, well-behaved pets.
