Lake District Fishing Holidays

Lake District Fishing Holidays

Self Catering Cottages for Fishing Holidays in the Lake District

What better place to fish than on the banks of a river or on a lake, surrounded by towering, majestic mountains, rolling, lush, green valleys – nothing but peace and quiet. That’s what you get with a Lake District fishing holiday. The catch will be finer, just because of where you are and the same is true if you choose your fishing holiday in the Lake District with Lakelovers. Why? Because we’ve done the research and hand-picked only the best cottages, which are all VistEngland 3-5-star graded and we’ve only chosen the ones in the best locations, so you’ll not have to travel far for the perfect catch. If you are looking for luxury fishing – whether with the family, the dog or a group of friends – that’s just what we have for you.

We’ve hand-picked the most immaculate 460 homes – the traditional cottages,  the barn conversions, the apartments, the ‘could-be’ castles from the southern lakes area of Windermere, right up to the northern lakes of Keswick.

So whether you want a small bolthole for two or a grand home to sleep up to 20, a cottage or apartment suitable for children and babies and even a home where you can stay with your dog, we’ve got a vast selection for you to choose from – just take a look.

After a day on the banks or shores, you might want to retire to a cottage at the foot of a fell;  perhaps you could think of nothing better than an evening relaxing in a hot tub; maybe a stroll to a traditional Lakeland pub for a real ale, or into a bustling town for a fine meal.

With us, you are free to choose what you want from fishing holidays in the Lake District.

But, you can rest assured that whatever type of home you want for your stay, one thing is for sure, it is going to be unique, stylish and in a superb setting whether you want to settle in a charming, traditional or period Lakeland cottage with oak beams and open fires;  relax in a luxury boat house on the serene shores of a lake, or in a home on the banks of a meandering river.

And, you can stay for as long as you like – whether a weekend-stay, a week-long break-away – and whether it is within a set budget, or you fancy splashing the cash, self-catering with us gives you complete flexibility to create a great break away.

But with Lakelovers, we don’t just leave you to it after you’ve booked your stay. Yes, we offer self-catering, but with us it is not a do it yourself holiday.

From the minute you book, until the moment you leave, our customer service team is on hand to ensure that your stay is as perfect as you want it to be.

We like to pull out the stops for you to have a holiday that you’ll always remember, so we give you:

  • Gift hampers on arrival
  • Priority tickets to some of the Lake District’s top attractions
  • Excellent customer service

Fishing holidays in the Lake District

The Lake District really is an anglers’ paradise.

Not only is it considered one of the most beautiful locations in the world, it is surrounded by areas of natural beauty and with the largest concentration of lakes, tarns, rivers and becks– including the largest Lake in England, lake Windermere.

There are tremendous fishing opportunities with Lake District fishing holidays and there is always a quiet spot to be found for catching large and small fish – trout, salmon, roach, char, perch and the like.

You’ll be spoilt for choice for places to cast your rod. Just to name a few, there’s Derwent Water, Coniston Water, Grasmere and Blea Tarn and there’s also an abundance of rivers carving their way through the beautiful landscape, such as the River Eden, River Calder or the River Derwent.

If you’d rather take to the water than set up along the banks and shores, then there are plenty of companies across the Lake District where you can hire fishing boats.

And, then of course, there is the coast for a spot of sea fishing and our holiday homes are perfectly placed if you want a visit to the sea.

The Lake District is also the perfect place to combine walking with your love of fishing too.

Some of the tarns for example require a bit of a hike to get too, but if you are up for it, it will be well worth the effort.

The location of your cottage can make or break a holiday – and since we hand-pick homes in the very best locations, you’ll be perfectly placed to have a wonderful time, fish until your heart is content, relax in a beautiful home and leave wishing you could do it all over again.
