Things To Do At Yaxham Waters Holiday Park
Set in 15 acres of wonderful parkland Yaxham Waters Holiday Park enjoys an idyllic location in the heart of Norfolk.
Come and explore our holiday park, fishing lakes and delightful open plan Café to discover what's new at Yaxham Waters Holiday Park.
Coarse Fishing at Yaxham Waters Holiday Park
Yaxham Waters Holiday Park has two fishing lakes, both of which are well stocked. Our main lake has specimen carp of up to 25lbs along with roach, rudd and golden tench. Anglers can enjoy views of the Mid Norfolk Steam Railway Line which runs along the back of our park. This lake is for the exclusive use of our lodge customers, who can enjoy free fishing when booking a lodge holiday with us.*
The second fishing lake is for the use of both day ticket holders & lodge guests. Day tickets are £4.95 and can be purchased in reception, and a fishing licence and landing net is required by everybody. This includes children.
