For keen anglers who enjoy fly fishing, a holiday where you can cast your line and then sit back in gorgeous surroundings probably seems like the ideal getaway. Pack a picnic and head out to a nearby lake or coastal fishing spot, and make the most of your time away from the humdrum of everyday life.
Planning a fishing holiday? You’ll be pleased to know that we have a wide variety of holiday cottages, ideally located for those who want to spend the week casting in tranquil locations around the UK. From lakeside retreats to seaside homes, you’ll certainly find the ideal fishing cottage with us.
Catch a great deal on a UK holiday cottage
For anglers looking to reel in saltwater fish, then a seaside holiday cottage offers the perfect location to fish, relax, and soak up the views. If you prefer lake fishing, then a secluded lakeside retreat offers the ideal balance of fishing and relaxation. If you’re able to, take a fish home with you so you can enjoy a fresh home-cooked meal once you’re back in your cosy lodge.
If a fishing trip isn’t complete without the company of your faithful friend, then we’ve got a huge selection of pet-friendly holiday lodges for you to choose from. Fancy treating yourself or the family to a bit of luxury? Choose a cottage with its own games room or swimming pool for a memorable time away.
Discover fantastic fishing spots across Britain
The UK is brimming with fantastic fishing spots. For freshwater fish, try the lakes, ponds and rivers of the New Forest, North York Moors and Lake District national parks. Within these areas, you’ll find a good selection of fisheries, with ample opportunities to catch sea trout and salmon. For those who enjoy being surrounded by vast mountain landscapes, then a fishing holiday to Scotland or North Wales will provide the perfect setting.
If you prefer to fish by the coast, then head down to Cornwall or Devon. Not only will you find great fishing locations here, but you’ll also have the opportunity to explore the stunning Jurassic Coast, as well as all the bustling seaside towns dotted along the way.
