Fishing at White Acres

If you’re looking for fishing holidays in Cornwall, White Acres Holiday Park is a stunning location that has everything you could want – with over 300 pegs - including wheelchair accessible - across 13 peaceful fishing lakes set into 184 acres of glorious rolling countryside. Not to mention a calendar full of matches and events to get involved in, as well as expert tuition and advice from the team on park. We rear our own fish in on-park stock ponds, so you’ll be guaranteed plenty of action on all of our lakes!

As one of the UK’s premier fishing destinations you’ll find choice aplenty, with ten lakes dedicated to pleasure fishing, perfect for a family outing with anglers of all age welcome. Three lakes are dedicated to specimen fishing – ideal if you’re looking to catch something a little bigger! There’s also an on-site tackle shop, so you can search for just the right kind of bait to catch one of the many species of fish to be found including: roach, tench, bream, f1s, catfish, rudd, perch, carp, barbel and chubb.

Plus, there’s the First Bite lakeside café, so you can get a bite yourselves by tucking into a tasty full English breakfast.

What's New?

From an extensive maintenance plan on the lakes to our revamped Tackle Shop, brand new accommodation and a fresh new menu in the restaurant – your White Acres experience will be better than ever.

What's new at White Acres

We’re investing into new pathways around all the lakes to make them more accessible for you plus we’re replacing over 75 pegs and re-building most of the pegs on Jennys and Pollawyn high bank to ensure that they are both safe and enjoyable to fish.

What's new at White Acres

We’ve decided to bring the rules of our five main 180 angler festivals in line with each other so the Frenzee Festival is no longer a pellet-free match. Plus there’ll be a new sponsor for some of our smaller festivals, which will ensure the prizes are even more exciting.

Fishing Holidays at White Acres

We’re continuing to carry out annual netting on the lakes. This helps to assist oxygen circulation and reduce algae, which improves water quality. We’ve introduced thousands of new fish into the lakes too, plus more to come. We’re working to fully utilise all four of the lakes in our fish farm to enable us to be self-sufficient in our fish breeding and re-stocking programmes.

Accommodation at White Acres

We have a huge range of accommodation options available at White Acres, from cosy caravans to luxurious lodges - the perfect base to enjoy all of our lakes.

Our caravans provide a whole host of great features, including double glazing and central heating in many models, and a choice of 2 or 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8. Or, make your stay even more memorable with our lodges! Set in the most picturesque locations on park, some by the lake, these comfortable models provide everything you need for a great stay.
