If you are arranging lodge holidays in East Anglia, you will find that there are many activities in the area for all the family to enjoy. With its beautiful coast, Suffolk is a top location for those who want to go sea angling, and there are many places where you can go fishing in lakes and rivers during your stay here. Everyone, from beginners to expert anglers, is bound to find something to get them hooked.
The seven luxury log cabins at Windmill Lodges are arranged around a private catch-and-release fishing lake. This attraction is only open to guests staying at our site in rural Saxtead. We also offer fishing equipment to hire, if you so choose, at an additional cost.
Here we will discuss just some of the great places to go fishing during your UK based holiday.
Great Places to Go Fishing
Aldeburgh –This famous resort is only 13 miles from Windmill Lodges. The sloping shingle beach here is a popular location for sea fishing during family holidays in this area of the UK, with parking available by the beach at the Slaughden end. Many people head for the town beach area because of the easy access, but experts tend to go for the deeper water in areas such as the fishing spot by the Martello Tower. Codling, whiting, sole and dogfish are among the types of fish caught in Aldeburgh. Beach fishing matches are sometimes held here.
Walberswick – You can park near to the beach at Walberswick, 18 miles from our site, and the whole stretch between the resort and nearby Dunwich is a popular location for sea fishing. This is a particularly popular area to catch bass during the summer. Walberswick is also famous for its crabbing, which is a popular summer pastime for families enjoying lodge holidays in this part of East Anglia. Local shops sell bait and youngsters can spend hours catching and admiring the crabs, as long as they put them back afterwards. An annual crabbing championship used to be held here, but has now been stopped, due to the sheer numbers attending.
Orford Ness – The Ness is a shingle spit best known as a wildlife haven owned by the National Trust, but it is also a popular spot for sea angling. The best way to get to the Ness is by boat, taking a ferry from Orford Quay, which is around 15 miles from Saxtead.
Suffolk Water Park – As well as sea angling, there are also plenty of opportunities for freshwater fishing during lodge holidays in East Anglia. Rod licences are needed for all fishing of this type. Suffolk Waterpark in Bramford, about 18 miles from Saxtead, is a popular venue with nine different lakes, including two specially geared to training. It is privately owned and day tickets are available. The fish in these include small roach and tench, while the larger lakes contain carp and pike. The waterpark offers professional training for novice anglers of all ages.
Manor Farm Fishery – Among the many options for coarse fishing in Suffolk during your holidays is this mixed fishery at Swilland, near Ipswich, 11 miles from Windmill Lodges. The two lakes are stocked with fish including carp, bream and roach.
