Boy-fishing-lakes-SomersetYou might think that fishing holidays are only for the warmer months, but that’s not the case! Fishing during the wintertime is a tranquil and enjoyable experience, perfect for all the family. Our private fishing lake in Somerset is open exclusively to residents, so you’re in for a good chance of catching a line. Here are 4 reasons to visit fishing lakes in Somerset this winter:


Plenty of opportunities to catch a line

At Lakeview Holiday Cottages, our fishing lake is not commercially run to give our guests plenty of opportunities to catch fish. Our fishing lakes in Somerset are stocked with carp, bream, roach and pike, providing you with a great variety of fish all year round. We recommend using specific types of bait during the winter to attract plenty of fish on your successful fishing trip! Try using highly visible baits such as sweetcorn or bread, as these can be easily spotted.


Your accommodation is right on your doorstep

Our self-catering Somerset accommodation is just a few short metres from the fishing lake, which is very convenient for both couples and families. After a chilly day by the water, what could be better than returning to a warm house and feeling cosy? Visiting our fishing lake is perfect for a fun, outdoors activity, whilst still enjoying winter home comforts.


Surrounded by beautiful countryside

Fishing lakes in Somerset at Lakeview Holiday Cottages are surrounded by beautiful countryside, which is especially peaceful when the leaves crunch under our feet and the lake glistens in the winter sun. Because our fishing lake is exclusive to residents, you can avoid big crowds and really take in the stunning landscape.


Perfect for all the family

Our fishing lake is not just for keen fishing pros. It’s also ideal for beginners and those wanting to practice their fishing skills. We pride ourselves on hosting a relaxed, family-friendly fishing environment. Our lake is home to lots of small fish which are easy for children and beginners to catch.
