  • Fishing sessions are to be booked through the campsite shop; wristbands will be issued and must be worn for the duration of the session.
  • Members of staff will check that all persons fishing are registered for the session and are wearing their wristband.
  • Pegs cannot be reserved; you must not set up on a peg unless you are ready to sit and fish.
  • Pegs must not be left unattended at any time. Any fishing items found to be left unattended will be removed by a member of staff.
  • No night fishing, fishing is between dawn and dusk only.
  • Individual UNHOOKING MATS and LANDING NETS must be used at all times, sharing is not permitted under any circumstances.
  • Strictly no keep nets to be used.
  • Barbless hooks must be used at all times; strictly no barbed hooks to be used.

  • No bivvy tents or equipment to be left out overnight.
  • Please respect your fellow fisher persons and only fish on your selected peg area.

  • Additional wristbands can be purchased for other persons on the pitch; £5.00 per adult or child per session.
  • Having a poolside pitch does not mean that the peg nearest to your unit is yours to be exclusively used. All pegs are on a first come, first served basis for each session.
  • Abuse of any kind to staff, guests or fellow fisherpersons will not be tolerated.
  • Pillaton Hall Farm do not take any responsibility for any loss, damage or injury to any persons, vehicles or equipment whilst using our pools.

Just got back from a 5 night stay in our caravan. Honestly can't fault the site, it's clean and well kept and The facilties block was always clean throughout our stay. We stayed on a pitch overlooking the large fishing lake. The pitch was a decent size and because it was on the far side it was nice a quiet. My wife fished all the lakes during our stay and the kids loved the play areas including the gold mining and the bike track. We ate at dotties a couple of times and the food was lovely. We will definatly be visiting again

Great location and loads to do with parks, open water swimming, on water assault course, fishing, takeaway food, bar and others. Onsite shop as well. But God you pay for the privilege of staying here. More than £50 per night in half term and then you have to pay for your electric ON TOP of that which can only be purchased in £10 blocks. If you can accept the price point then you'll definitely go back. Its only the price point that stopped this being a 5* rating 😄😄

Beautiful site with so much to do for the children- playgrounds, bouncy pillows, zip lines and the gold creek are fantastic!! I have camped and been for the day for the stay and play sessions. The lakes are lovely to walk around and fish. Brilliant facilities and super cafe - good range of food with ice creams and slushies. Highly recommend!
