Fishing Holidays

Fishing holidays in Somerset for all ages

Lakeview Holiday Cottages in Somerset is renowned for its private 12-acre lake perfect for fishing in Somerset. Come and fish all year round for:

  • Carp
  • Pike
  • Bream
  • Roach

All fish are left to feed on natural resources in the lake and is not commercially run. Also home to geese, ducks and swans, this man-made lake was created over 20 years ago and now presents itself as a very mature and quiet haven for fishing lovers.

How to prepare for a fishing holiday in Somerset

Please note that to go on a fishing holiday in the UK, a rod license is required. You can apply for the rod license online or go to your local post office.


During your Somerset fishing holiday we will provide a secure lock-up to store your fishing tackle. Please bring your own fishing gear or visit the Somerset Angling store in Bridgwater, only a short drive away. The combination of a tranquil,  large and active lake and useful fishing storage makes it the perfect place for a family, couple or individual fishing holiday in Somerset. It is also a great opportunity to bring the kids and develop their fishing skills!

To keep the lake vibrant and to protect our local wildlife, please read the Lakeview Holiday Cottages fishing rules (requires Adobe Reader).

Fishing is included in the accommodation price

Fishing is only available to guests of Lakeview Holiday Cottages, included in the price of the accommodation and open all year round. The exclusivity of this means that you don’t have to worry about being inhibited by competitive Anglers.


How far is the lake from the holiday cottages?

The private lake is only a few metres away from our holiday cottages in Somerset, so a short stroll from comfy sofas and king size beds. The majority of our holiday cottages have views of the lake from the rear bedroom windows and the al-fresco patios mean you can relax and take in the scenic views.
