Fishing holidays in Norfolk
For those who love the sport, we have a number of waterside cottages including cottages by the sea, riverside cottages and accommodation in the Norfolk Broads. Some offer onsite fishing and angling facilities. Norfolk offers a variety of fishing spots, from fresh water lakes and rivers to the salt waters of the wide-open ocean. The Norfolk Broads is in fact, the largest area of free fishing in the UK - bream, perch, pike, roach, rudd and tench can be found in the popular Broad rivers of Ant, Bure, Chet, Thume, as well as the less crowded Stiffkey, Wensum and Yare rivers. Stillwater and trout fishing are also common, and Norfolk offers a diverse range of angling opportunities. The Norfolk Broads are 200 km of waterways stocked full of pike, perch, chub, rudd, bream, roach and tench. It’s the perfect location for rod and line fishing and is great for beginners as you’ll soon get a bite!
You could even take to the open sea and try some offshore fishing on a day trip with an experienced skipper who’ll know all the best spots for a great catch and you might even have the luck to get a spot of lunch onboard. Chartered boats in coastal towns like Wells-Next-the-Sea will take visitors deep into the ocean to catch bigger game like bass, cod and mackerel. Fishing holidays in Norfolk are an ideal way to get away and relax, and we have plenty of cottages close to either the coast, the rivers or the Broads that will be just the ticket. A selection of our cottages even boast their own private fishing lakes, where you can enjoy some carp fishing or coarse fishing in complete solitude. All anglers should note that a fishing license is needed in the County of Norfolk, which can be obtained from the Post Office or the Environment Agency.
