Book a Somerset cottage holiday that your family will never forget.

Private lake perfect for fishing

Our beautiful lake is teeming with fish all year round. Whether it’s carp, pike, bream, or roach, all our fish are left to feed on natural resources and live happy, peaceful lives. As we’re not commercially run, a Somerset fishing holiday at Lakeview is the ideal time to introduce your family to the tranquillity of sitting by the water’s edge. We’re not the only ones who love it, either – our lake is also home to local geese, ducks, and swans!


Preparing for a fishing holiday in Somerset

The combination of a tranquil, large, and active lake makes Lakeview the perfect location for a family fishing holiday in Somerset.

Before arriving for your Somerset family holiday, please note that a rod license is required for fishing in the UK. You can apply for a rod license online or go to your local post office.

We also ask that bring your own fishing gear or visit the Somerset Angling store in nearby Bridgwater. We will provide a secure lock-up to store your fishing tackle during your stay. Lastly, to keep the lake vibrant and to protect our local wildlife, please read the Lakeview fishing rules.

Fishing is included

Our incredible lake is only available to guests of Lakeview. Not only that, but the lake is open all year round – perfect for family fishing holidays in Somerset no matter the time of year. This exclusivity means that you don’t have to worry about being inhibited by any competitive anglers. Fishing is included in the price of your accommodation, too!

How far is the lake from our holiday accommodation?

The private lake is only a few metres away from our self-catering accommodation in Somerset, so a short stroll from comfy sofas and king size beds. The majority of our holiday homes also have views of the lake from the rear bedroom windows and al-fresco patios, meaning you can relax and take in the scenic views. With the private lake being so close to our holiday homes, you can even nip back to the homes for lunch and a cup of tea!
