For some, fishing on one of the UK’s lakes, rivers and waterways is one of the finest ways to relax and enjoy time out.
Farm Stay UK has one of the best selections of working farm and countryside holidays around, with many locations having access to freshwater river or lake fishing – often on their own land - or sea and deep water fishing for coastal stays.
Pack the rod, reels and tackle, grab the waders and prepare to enjoy fly-fishing, coarse fishing or angling experiences that you will remember.
Fishing experiences for everyone
The farming landscapes covers many different terrains; and while pastures and fields are great for stretching the legs, as well as providing us with food, fishing fans need rivers, lakes or the seashore to indulge in their favourite pastime.
Carp, pike, bass and salmon are often the preferred catch of fishermen and fisherwomen and casting out means the usual, stressful world is very far away.
So, whether you’re an old hat or are trying fishing for beginners, you’ll find the perfect fishing holiday with Farm Stay.
As the seasons roll by, getting a bite can be one of the best ways to unwind and can be done several times a year.
Farm Stay UK lists stunning luxury cottages, lodges, glamping cabins and B&Bs that either have fishing rights on their land or can advise as to the local byelaws and possible locations.
Enjoying a staycation in the British countryside also adds to the relaxation factor for keen anglers.
Idyllic hideaways for anglers include somewhere safe to store the gear; an area where kit can be dried out before the next day’s session; and ideally the nearest fishing opportunity is either on the doorstep or a very short distance away.
England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have some popular fishing locations either along some of the UK’s mightiest rivers or perhaps a spot that is a hidden gem.
The peace, quiet and tranquillity of a fishing holiday is also essential. It all adds to an awesome angling experience!
