Try Fishing On Your Next Glamping Holiday

Friday 24 June 2016 @ 12:01

As we’re an island nation, it’s not surprising that many of us just love fish.

Whether eating it, catching it or both, fishing is a time-honoured way of either whiling away a few hours or putting an evening meal on the table.

Freshwater, saltwater, coarse, bank … there is a whole world out there of dedicated fisherfolk who fish in their spare time or as a way of making a living.

The beauty of the British Isles is that you’re never more than a few miles from a riverbank, lakeside or beach. You will need to check the fishing rights before you make that impressive casting arc, so for ideas as to where you can potentially fish, visit the Canal River Trust website.

Fishing on holiday

Fishing and holidays can go hand in hand as there are plenty of holiday sites that include fishing either onsite or very close by!

The respected UK Campsite website has the option to search for sites with onsite fishing.

Fishing can also be ‘the bait’ for a great holiday in the great outdoors!

Offering warmth and comfort after your fishing trip, Wigwam® Holidays can help you cast off and hopefully land the catch of the day.

Wigwams and Fishing

Wigwam® Holidays has over 70 sites across nationwide and all sites will be able to recommend some type of fishing activity close by.

Several sites are completely geared for aquatic enthusiasts:

Brampton Wigwams in the lovely county of Cumbria is on the same site as New Mills Trout Farm, offering fishing for enthusiasts and beginners.

Sands Wigwams at Wester Ross in the North West of Scotland has views of shimmering lochs and sandy beaches, and includes a concrete slipway for boat launching, ideal for fishing fans.


Braidhaugh Wigwams in Perthshire overlooks the River Earn, so fishing is literally on the doorstep of your Wigwam®!


And no holiday ‘north of the border’ is complete without lolling by a loch, and Loch Tay Wigwams could be the place where you fall for fishing hook, line and sinker, as it offers fishing activities onsite.

For a very ‘singular’ experience, Logierait Wigwams comprises of one lovely Wigwam® close to peaceful rivers, at which bank fishing can be arranged.

If you’re considering wonderful Wales as a holiday hotspot, then Lleyn Peninsula Wigwams opening 6th June 2016, could be the ideal place to take your fishing tackle! Within its grounds is a large fly-fishing lake, well stocked with brown and rainbow trout. And if you prefer saltwater fishing, then Porthdinllean beach is close by.

Heading towards England’s delightful South West, Secret Valley not only has a vineyard and farm tours of their working organic farm, it also has a complimentary coarse fishing lake onsite!

Yet you don’t have to be ‘reely’ into it to appreciate our nation’s connections with fishing. Given Wigwam® sites are in some of the UK’s most spectacular locations and close to visitor attractions, why not explore the countless fishing villages and town that dot the coastline? Perhaps visit a themed museum or two, including the Scottish Fishing Museum at Anstruther, Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre or True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum at King’s Lynn.

So while you may not be up for full-on angling just yet, you could give fishing a try and see if you get ‘caught’ up in this fascinating water world.
