Choosing a holiday that includes fishing can often be a great solution for those keen anglers, but also for those that aren’t. With the rise of many different types of fishing holidays, from luxury private villas with their own lakes, to commercial fisheries offering bank-side lodges, caravans or camping – there really is a fishing holiday to suit everyone.
Going on holiday in the UK with family or friends doesn’t mean having to leave your fishing tackle behind. Taking the minimum you need means you can spend valuable time away from home whilst still enjoying your favourite sport. The increase in holiday venues which have a fishing lake reflects tourism’s recognition that there’s a huge market for attracting anglers to stay with them rather than booking a more traditional holiday hotel or cottage.
An added attraction of a fishing holiday venue is that, because they have their own land, they are likely to be set in attractive countryside away from the hustle and bustle of a town or city hotel. It also means families have an opportunity to fish together. Parents can spend a relaxing time fishing with their children, spouse or partner or – if the family prefers to shoot off for an afternoon’s shopping – they can have a relaxing few hours on their own.
Whilst angling and holiday magazines carry plenty of advertisements from venue owners, there is only a limited amount they can say in their adverts. Those that have websites, however, can tell you a lot more about their destinations and show photographs of their accommodation and the facilities they offer. Many even have built-in reservation pages where you can check out availability for the dates you want and even make a booking whilst on-line.
Try searching in your browser for search terms like ‘angling holidays’, ‘fishing holidays’, ‘holidays with fishing’, holiday accommodation with fishing lakes’ or if carp fishing is your favourite terms like ‘carp fishing holidays’ or ‘carp fishing holidays in the uk’. Naturally, Fisheries.co.uk has a selection of fishing venues which offer angling holidays, some of which offer exclusive use of their lakes, fishing which is restricted to people staying on site or some which offer fishing to everyone but is also available to guests.
There are different types of fishing holidays. Some offer fishing to guests who stay in their top of the range luxury self-catering Bed and Breakfast accommodation whilst others offer more traditional B&B accommodation, lakeside lodge and cabin accommodation. Gaining in popularity are venues which offer glamping in yurts or pods whilst a large number offer fishing to those who stay on their campsite in tents, caravans or camper-vans. The chances are that whatever your style of accommodation or budget, you will find the holiday you are looking for.
Whilst fishing holidays in the UK can be greatly influenced by the weather, the main thing is that you pick a venue whose criteria matches what you are looking for. If you are looking for a break which offers peace and quiet with the opportunity to go fishing without lots of other anglers, something a little more exclusive might be more up your street and more appropriate than picking a busy camping site or major fishery which has holiday accommodation bolted on. Draw up your wish list and search on-line. Check our venue’s own websites, look at the photographs and if you have any questions either drop them an email or give them a ring. If you are looking for a particular type of fishing holiday, you can always contact our team who will do their best to point you in the right direction.
