Nestled amidst the picturesque Herefordshire countryside, Lucksall Holiday Park is the perfect destination for a memorable getaway. Our family-run park has earned a prestigious Five Star ‘Exceptional’ Award due to the exceptional facilities and beauty of the surrounding area. Spanning 21 acres of meticulously maintained level grassland, the park is flanked on one side by the serene River Wye and on the other by 200 acres of lush woodland.
Let’s explore some of the ways to make the most of your holiday at the park and utilise these idyllic landscapes.
Lucksall is strategically located for those seeking to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Herefordshire. The surrounding countryside offers endless opportunities for hiking and exploring. As you venture out, keep your camera ready, as the area is teeming with wildlife, presenting numerous photo opportunities.
Right across from the park lies Westwoods, a sprawling 90-acre woodland owned by Lucksall Park and accessible to all guests. This woodland area has been carefully preserved as a nature reserve, providing a sanctuary for creatures such as buzzards, squirrels, and deer. As you meander through this enchanting forest, you might just spot some of these fascinating animals in their natural habitat.
Connected to Westwoods is an additional 200 acres of woodland that leads you to the charming village of Fownhope. Here, you’ll find two delightful pubs – The New Inn (where even your four-legged friends are welcome) and The Green Man, both perfect for a pit stop during your explorations.
If you’re an angler or simply enjoy a leisurely day by the water, you’re in for a treat at Lucksall. Situated along the banks of the River Wye, the park is an angler’s paradise. The River Wye is renowned for offering some of the best-unspoiled river fishing in the country.
The River Wye’s unique watercourse transitions from fast-running, hard-bottomed sections to slow, deep, silted areas, making it ideal for a variety of fishing techniques and skill levels. Barbel fishing is particularly popular on the River Wye, with some of these powerful fish weighing into double figures. Additionally, Lucksall boasts a stellar reputation for Pike fishing, with anglers landing fish weighing over 30 pounds, a testament to the impressive specimens residing in the river.
What makes fishing on the River Wye truly extraordinary is not just the diversity of fish but also the opportunity to immerse yourself in the rugged natural surroundings. Keep an eye out for kingfishers, otters, curlews, and swans as you connect with nature in this unique fishing paradise.
For water enthusiasts, Lucksall’s proximity to the beautiful River Wye provides the perfect playground for canoeing and paddle boarding. This scenic river offers a tranquil setting for these water activities, with abundant wildlife and picturesque surroundings to enjoy.
Lucksall provides two convenient access points to the River Wye. One is located just behind the Riverside Bar & Eatery, while the other is situated at the lower end of the caravan park. If you bring your own canoe, kayak, or paddle board, you’re welcome to use these access points to launch and land during your stay, making it easy to explore the river at your leisure.
After a day of outdoor adventures, indulge in some fantastic dining at the Riverside Bar & Eatery, nestled within Lucksall Park and overlooking the serene River Wye. This charming eatery is not just for park guests; it’s open to the public as well, welcoming everyone to savour its offerings.
