Set in stunning woodland, with well stocked fishing lakes and a fabulous new pool complex

Carlton Meres Holiday Park is situated in the heart of rural Suffolk and is a truly natural beauty spot. Carlton Meres Holiday Park is set in a large woodland area and boasts an abundance of natural wildlife. With two large fishing lakes at Carlton Meres Holiday Park, fishing is a popular pastime for keen anglers of all ages. Both lakes are kept well stocked with carp, roach, bream and perch, so you can sit back and enjoy the fishing at any time of year. The lakes have been known to deliver 40lb fish, so there is potential for a great day!

The surrounding woodland and natural wildlife are the perfect setting to unwind on a short break or longer stay. And if you enjoy a view of the lakes, we have a stunning lodge with full lake views for hire, along with a range of holiday homes in equally beautiful surroundings.

As well as the beautiful scenery at Carlton Meres Holiday Park, this wonderful park has a newly developed indoor and outdoor swimming pool (opened in April 2019), a popular entertainment complex with a bar and restaurant serving great tasting food.

If you are bringing your four-legged friend on holiday, there are some magical walks around the park, and we have many dog-friendly caravans and lodges to stay in.
