Holiday Cottages with Onsite Fishing

Fishing has to be one of the most relaxing and laid-back activities and what better time to do it than when you are on holiday? It’s a wonderful activity that is popular with all ages and great to do with friends or as a solitary pass-time when you want to escape for some serenity.

Many of our coastal cottages offer great opportunities for fishing both from the shore or via a seaboat excursion. We also have a large selection of self-catering properties below that offer on-site fishing, alongside hours of entertainment without having to leave the cottage grounds.

Some cottages have direct access from the garden onto the river, loch or shoreline, whilst others have fishing lakes amongst the grounds that guests are welcome to use during their stay. Keep reading to learn more about some of the best fishing lakes with accommodation and how to plan your next trip! Read more

Private Fishing Travel Guide

Before booking your next fishing holiday cottage, it’s best to know everything from when to visit and what to do. Luckily enough, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading to learn more about our fishing lodges and log cabins to rent and how to make the most out of your getaway!

When to Go Fishing

Before booking your fishing trip, it’s first important to assess the best time to go. The weather can impact several factors for your holiday. Fishing is generally an outdoor sport, meaning the better the climate, the more enjoyable the activity.

Generally, May, June and July are known for being great times of year to enjoy a fishing holiday. This is when the temperatures heat up, with more sunshine and longer daylight hours. The water is also known for being a little warmer between 10 am and 4 pm, increasing your chances of a catch!

Places like Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds, Devon, Suffolk, Pembrokeshire, plus many more are all great summer destinations for a fishing trip. With plenty of beautiful holiday cottages with a private fishing lake, you will be able to relax in your lovely rental with great activities nearby.

What to Do on a Fishing Holiday

While it goes without saying that you'll enjoy the carp fishing lakes, with so many fishing holiday cottages scattered around the UK, there are plenty of other things to do and see on these types of trips. Visitors often find themselves immersed in beautiful countryside, providing the opportunity to explore various hiking and biking trails. You will also discover some lovely towns near your holiday rental, the ideal spot to explore your surroundings.

For those hoping to enjoy a pleasure fishing trip with their four-legged friends, there are also some excellent dog-friendly holidays with properties catering to pets. Whether you’re seeking river fishing, lakes, trout fishing and more, there is something for everyone when booking a trip with Independent Cottages.

Tips for Staying in a Holiday Cottage with Onsite Fishing

Whether you enjoy the activity and excitement of fly fishing or prefer the relaxation of coarse fishing, the UK offers excellent opportunities for anglers. Renting a holiday cottage with on-site fishing means that you will never be far from the water or enjoying your passion.

Even if you are not keen on fishing yourself, having a lake, loch, river or the coast on the doorstep is sure to add to the tranquillity of any environment. For the keen anglers amongst you, what could be nicer than starting the day with an early morning fish whilst breakfast is being prepared back at the cottage? Or perhaps end the day with a cold beer and your fishing rod as the sun goes down.

It’s important to always supervise children around water. Some cottage owners will provide rods, equipment and storage facilities, so find out what amenities are available before setting off on your holiday. It’s also best to check if fishing permits are required, and don't forget your waders and waterproofs!
