FISHING

The Cotswold Castaway Cabin is located next to the Pedalo Lake at Hoburne Holiday Park. This is the largest of 4 lakes on the park measuring 5.5 acres. The lake is an old gravel pit, originally stocked with fish around 20 years ago.

 

The lake is famous for it's impressive head of specimen carp to a massive 54lbs, along with many different 30's & 40's. Tench, pike, perch, roach & rudd reside in the lake. The lake is around 5-6ft deep throughout, then shallows up towards the clubhouse. Fishing is permitted from 8am til 10pm with no night fishing allowed.

 

Many famous anglers have visited, including Ollie Davies, Hassan Kahn & Terry Hearn to name a few. There are friendly bailiffs on hand to offer advice and also a tackle shop over the road to stock up on those essentials.

 

We have a large carp mat, landing net and sling available for our guests to use, so you can leave the smelly kit at home!
