Fishing holidays can be very relaxing and also extremely addictive. For beginners, a fishing holiday can be an exciting challenge, and for seasoned anglers, it can be the perfect opportunity to embrace the sport as well as its beautiful natural surroundings.
Here are 5 of the top fishing locations in the UK:
- Bury Hill Fisheries, Surrey
The beauty of a fishing holiday at Bury Hill Fisheries is the perfect harmony between modern and traditional. Still withholding its fame since the 60s as a top fishing location, Bury Hill is far from your regular day ticket fishery. This remains to be one of our country’s most stunning and diverse fisheries, offering everything from pedigree English Carp and specimen Bream to large Zander or Pike.
- Windmill Fishery, Bristol
A great choice of 4 bespoke lakes, Windmill Fishery can offer holiday makers the Match Lake, Carp Lake, Specimen Lake, and Silver Fish Lake. The fishery is managed on a day ticket basis for holiday makers and a refreshments service can also be organised with the site manager. Bristol is also a wonderful, diverse seaside location which gives the whole family a world of fun to explore, so you can be sure that everyone in your party is entertained throughout the holiday.
- Cuton Lakes, Essex
Cuton Lakes is a breathtakingly beautiful fishing location in Chelmsford, Essex. There are three wonderful lakes, complete with a cabin where you can enjoy refreshments throughout the day. There are a number of swims which are suitable for disabled anglers so please don’t forget to bring your disabled photo ID badge if you would like to benefit from the disabled parking spaces.
- Monks Pool, North Wales
This is one of the best carp fishing locations in the UK and most definitely a place to add to your bucket list. Covering 6 acres, with depths of over 40ft and profusely occupied by weed, this is a popular fishing lake because of its extreme difficulty factor. Keep in mind: Monks Pool is definitely a challenge for more seasoned anglers.
- Orchid Lakes
A truly beautiful location, set in the heart of the Thames Valley, Orchid Lakes offers a wonderful fishing location as well as a nearby tourist village which is full of culture and history. Stay in the nearby Dorchester-on-Thames to experience the quaint and stunning historic city. You can also enjoy the views at Orchid Lakes, as the fishing lakes are surrounded by the most spectacular trees and wildlife.
