High­fields Leisure

Soak up the peace of this Lin­colnshire Wolds re­treat

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

ONE of the ben­e­fits of be­ing an an­gler is en­joy­ing the peace and quiet of your cho­sen venue. If you book in a visit at High­fields, you’ll find the bat­ter­ies recharged in dou­ble quick time – it truly is a haven of tran­quil­lity just 30 min­utes from the A1!

Sprawl­ing across well in ex­cess of 190 acres in the Lin­colnshire coun­try­side, the site is sur­rounded by wood­lands and mead­ows with na­ture walks (the site has won the David Bellamy Gold Award year on year). Here you’ll see an ar­ray of wildlife whether you’re out for a stroll or fish­ing one of the four lakes.

Five-star breaks in the two tim­ber lodges and three static car­a­vans are avail­able, and if you re­ally love the place you can bag your own pad by buy­ing a new or pre-owned car­a­van or lodge. There’s no club­house, café or chil­dren’s play area on site, which adds to the peace, and dogs are wel­come too.

Only one lake is day ticket – Alder is home to carp to 15lb plus roach, rudd, perch and bream of­fer­ing easy fish­ing on the float or pole. Hol­i­day­mak­ers are al­lowed to fish this lake at no ex­tra cost. Ex­clu­sive to an­glers stay­ing on site are Hawthorn, Rowan and Wil­low Lakes.

All hold carp, with some big fish in Hawthorn Lake plus roach, rudd, perch, bream, cru­cians and tench. The lakes around an acre apiece and are nicely ma­tured.

Lodge ac­com­mo­da­tion con­sists of the Park View and Wood­side Lodges, both sleep­ing up to six peo­ple in three be­d­rooms and over­look­ing the lakes – al­though pets are not al­lowed in the Park View Lodge.

Should you fancy a car­a­van stay, High­fields has a brand new 2015 model ABI Al­ford fourberth static hol­i­day van that’s stylish and con­tem­po­rary in de­sign and sit­u­ated on a large el­e­vated lake­side pitch close to the edge of Hawthorn Lake.

With cen­tral heat­ing, dou­ble glaz­ing and an out­door pa­tio area with pic­nic ta­ble, the car­a­van is fully equipped and in­cor­po­rates a lock­able stor­age unit for fish­ing tackle.

Also avail­able are two fur­ther static vans with dou­ble glaz­ing and cen­tral heat­ing.
