HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Sept. 22, 2010) – With 35 locations around the UK, Haven Holidays are renowned for their action-packed family holidays.
But with the children back at their desks the holiday parks take on a more relaxed atmosphere with plenty of scope for grown-ups to enjoy the many facilities on offer.
Well-stocked fishing lakes are a focal point for several Haven parks – and with the lakes right on your doorstep, angling’s even more convenient – you can even pop back to your holiday home for lunch!
Burnham on Sea, an award winning holiday park on the Somerset coast holds regular Saturday angling competitions where catches of fish of around 8-12lb are the norm – although the specimen carp lake regularly yields substantial fish weighing up to 32lb. The lakes have well managed swims and are stocked with roach, tench, bream and perch – there’s even a bivvy hut for night fishing or bird-watching.
The Orchards, near St Osyth in Essex is a haven for anglers with two lakes and specimen carp weighing up to 35lb. Or head north to Thorpe Park Holiday Village near Cleethorpes or Primrose Valley on the North Yorkshire coast where well-stocked lakes provide challenging coarse fishing.
Many of the parks are ideally situated for sea-fishing with direct access to miles of unspoilt beaches and deep-sea fishing trips available locally.
And if some members of your party fail to see the attraction of angling you won’t need to worry about them being bored – with swimming pools, golf, bowling, daytime and evening entertainment and some truly stunning locations there’s plenty of choice.
From a relaxing week away to action packed weekend breaks, Haven holiday parks have something for everyone regardless of age and preference. It all depends on what you’re looking for from your Haven holiday. Facilities vary from park to park so check the website for more information and to catch the best bargains.
Prices start at an affordable £99 for up to four people based on four nights at The Orchards or Thorpe Park staying in Deluxe accommodation on various mid-week beaks during October. Call 0871 230 1900 or www.haven.com.
