A day at Pillaton Hall Farm for coarse fishing
Packed and ready to visit Penkridge which is a beautiful country town. Driving through Cannock and suddenly the winter sun was going down. So my husband tried to find a spot where we can parked our car. Drove through an industrial parking lot and then we saw the sign showing this place is known as Pillaton Hall Farm.
We have never come here before and the surrounding farms are so beautiful. So I went to took some photos of this place and tried to ask one of the worker how to go into the Pillaton Hall Farm as they are closed in winter and open in Spring, Summer and Autumn times. Been told that we can go through the gate and walk along the path which lead to the pools.
So we parked our car at the industrial factory car park and follow the path which there is a locked gate to stop passerby walk in without permit. The Pillaton Hall Farm provide a breathtaking views of Cannock Chase and also a backdrop for camping and coarse fishing in Staffordshire.
The campsite has four coarse fishing pools. Ten acres site dedicate to hosting fantastic weekends for all family. The farm has four well stocked with quality fish for coarse fishing and a family friendly campsite.
The entrance fee for caravan without electric is 15.00 gbp and 20.00 gbp with electric hookup. This campsite with well updated toilets and safety site for children playground. Not far from this farm there is a golf park which about 10 minutes away and 500 acres of Cannock Chase for trekking or hiking that is nearby to this farm.
We were so lucky that the staff whom looking after this campsite didn't chase us away as we didn't have any permit and instead he show us the beautiful pools with electric water fountains on. Amazing and well maintain parkland with pools what more do we need with such a peaceful, serene and magical surroundings to fish and camp.
