Fishing is one of the oldest pastimes, for many sitting with a rod dangling in the water waiting for the fish to bite is the ultimate relaxation mode. An activity to suit all ages and abilities, it can be done solo or with friends or family. What could be more laid back than sitting by the water on a warm summer's day in the fresh air, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the water amid stunning scenery with your line bobbing in the water. Start or finish the day by the waters edge, the choice is yours.
For some a holiday away from the water sounds like hell. There is plenty of choice available when it comes to holiday cottages and to suit all abilities from budding to expert fishermen. With fly-fishing for salmon and trout, coarse fishing for perch, carp, pike, river and sea fishing. Our holiday cottages are located close to well stocked rivers, lakes, streams and coastline to keep you busy fishing throughout your stay.
Our selection of holiday properties vary in their options, some have fishing located on-site, these properties may have streams or rivers running through their grounds whilst others have facilities nearby. Please note that each property may be subject to local restrictions and regulations at particular times. Make sure to check for licence requirements prior to making your booking.
Our holiday cottages have great opportunities to engage in this activity. On-site fishing means that you don't have to even leave the grounds for your entertainment. You might even catch something tasty for dinner.
Maybe a charter trip might be more suited to you or for the more adventurous deep sea fishing might tick the box for you.
Teach your children to fish on your next holiday, get them involved early with a net and bucket to collect crabs from rock pools, or a small fishing line to dangle in for a bigger catch. A fun activity the whole family can get involved with.
Some of our cottage owners provide kit such as, rods, storage facilities and nets. It is worth checking with the owner before arrival to see what you might need to take along with you.
If fishing is not something you have tried you might want to start it has been proven to reduce stress and to help people unwind. It is not difficult to see why it is becoming a more popular sport, it certainly has its benefits, concentrating on getting that catch without any interruptions, a good old-fashioned activity.
