Carp Fishing Holidays in the UK

Four feature-filled lakes, set in South Devon are the perfect location for carp fishing holidays in the UK, if you’re looking for Carp Fishing lodges or cabins in the UK, then look no further than our fishing holiday accommodation.

Big Carp has been drawing anglers to our lakes for many years, in our specimen lake, Carp go up to 30lb. The Cofton Carp are stunning creatures, varying in shape and size. Varieties include mirror carp, Common Carp, and even koi-cross commons, which are a delightful surprise for our fishermen.

This year, we stocked new fish to supplement the existing stock, and the Carp reach early 30’s with plenty of big doubles to back them up. These are the target fish for many, but that’s not the whole story. Our pools are set out to cater to all angling abilities, and each offers a different challenge.

Gravel bars, reed margins, lilypads, and islands will challenge and excite you!

We’re only 20 minutes from the M5 Exeter, so for most, we make a great weekend break, and if you live that little bit further away, you may want to stay for a week to make it worthwhile!

Four fantastic lakes

You’ll find your favourite spot among our 57 pegs across four lakes. You can find more detailed information about each of our lakes, its stock and some pointers to help you get the best out of your fishing holiday in Devon!

Every angler requires a valid fishing ticket to fish and should hold an Environment Agency Rod Licence. Daily or weekly tickets are available, with evening permits from 2 pm. One ticket is required per person, and up to two rods are available. We give concession prices for Senior Citizens, Junior anglers and those under 12’s are free with a paying adult.

For your convenience, parking spaces are available at the entrance to the lakes.

The lakes are within 50 yards of both the toilets and also our well-stocked tackle shop.

Touring and camping is our mainstay on our Holiday Park in Devon; if you have a touring caravan, you can have a Hard-Standing pitch right beside the gate… we also have static caravans with dog-friendly and accessible options, not to mention our stunning self-catering holiday Cottages.

Birthday Weekend
We booked a children's swimming birthday party for lots of children and it went very well. The swimming was well managed by Tiff and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves splashing about.
Perfect weekend away.
We had a lovely weekend break at Cofton this is our third time here and we are already planning our next trip in June. The caravans are all spotless and very comfortable. We look forward to returning in June.

Some of your kind words...

  • A brilliant stay as always. We stayed in a cottage this time which was beautiful and very well equipped. Lots of lovely little touches with a welcome hamper and lots of board games. Hubbie was well impressed with the huge TV too. Loved the courtyard and we were lucky enough to have the weather to BBQ 2 of the days. All the staff from reception to the shop to the entertainment were friendly and very accommodating of both my girls. Used the chippy which has recently changed hands and the food was still great. There is lots to do, loved the swimming, the zip wire, the park and walk in the woods and around the fishing lake. Have to be honest though we missed the caravan...... will definitely be back, hopefully in the Fernworthy van with the hot tub.


  • Had an amazing weeks holiday. The park was immaculate, the outdoor pool was spotless and the cleaning blocks were cleaned regularly. All the staff were very helpful and the shop on site was reasonably priced. We went with two kids (aged 6 and 7) and our dog, the kids were never bored and had an amazing holiday. We will definitely be returning next year!


  • My family and I stayed for 5 nights in July, aged between 13 and 40 and we all had a brilliant family stay. The teenagers loved the outdoor pool and the woods and we all loved the donkeys. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and it’s still got a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has all the facilities you could want for a camping holiday. I must say the fish and chip shop is the best we have ever had at a holiday park, reasonable prices and good sized portions. We have booked to come back again on 25th August for a week and can’t wait!


  • I visited when my relatives came over from Canada and fell in love. I was lucky enough to stay for a week last August for my sons 2nd birthday. It has got to be one of my favourite places to go. Absolutely beautiful, quiet, good facilities, lovely restaurants. The staff are outstanding. I can't wait to come back again this year!


  • Stayed in campervan for a weekend. Great campsite good location, plenty of things for all to do. Great fishing lakes all in a short walk through the woodland to the lovely Dawlish Warren and Dawlish. Couldn't fault.

  • I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.


  • The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
