Bag your first ‘twenty’ here
Big carp are a reality at this prime Essex holiday hotspot
WANT to catch your first 20lb carp? Then come to Waldegraves Holiday Park, on the beautiful and historic Mersea Island overlooking the sparkling Blackwater Estuary.
With four lakes to choose from, Waldegraves appeals to all types of angler, and offers great sport for pleasure, match and specimen fans alike. The lakes are stocked with quality carp, bream, tench, roach, rudd, perch and gudgeon – all guaranteed to meet the expectations of the keenest angler.
Each water has recently been improved, with new swims added so more people can enjoy the sport on offer. Managed by a permanent fishing warden, fish and their environment are maintained to the highest standard. The average weight of the fish has rocketed in recent years and multiple hits can be made all year round. Facilities are suitable for disabled anglers, with parking close to the lakes.
Day tickets can be bought, but the real deal starts when you book a holiday at certain times of the year because all residents are entitled to free fishing.
There’s no better time to take advantage of Waldegrave’s incredible fishing breaks during a stay in a luxury holiday home.
The lakes are all beautifully maintained.
