Glamping Pods and Lodges with private fishing pegs

I’m a big fan of Glamping and lodges for a short break with my family so I’ve compiled a list of all the places across the UK where you can stay right on the bank!

These are not the places where there’s a fishing lake on-site or nearby, these are the places with private pegs where you can fish straight from your lodge!

Please be aware – I have not visited all these places, the information comes from their own websites. Stock is what they report and not confirmed by me!

Name: Brookmeadow, Market Harborough

Pod/ Lodge: Log cabins, set back from the lakes

Number: 3

Lake size: 5 acres

Reported stock: Carp to 23lb, tench to 7lb, mixed coarse. On the site, there are some nice looking carp.

Website: brookmeadow.co.uk

Info: This looks to me to be more of a family place with the cabins well set back from the lake. You cannot fish directly from them but it’s not far a all to get the rods in. The stock looks decent and there is also a syndicate on the water which is £195 per year so shows a good level of fish.

Name: Rum Bridge, Sudbury

Pod/ Lodge: Pods & bell tents

Number: Various

Lake size: 3 lakes on-site, back lake looking the best for an experienced carper

Reported Stock: Back lake record is a 42lb carp, the road lake is 32lb & the most lake has tench to 8lb and crucians to 3lb.

Website: rumbridgefisheries.co.uk

Info: This looks to be one of the best places on the list! Although the back lake looks a real challenge, I’d describe it as a serious carpers lake. It’s base stock starts at 22lb so if you do hit one you can be sure it is a decent fish. The glamping pods are mixed from basic pods with just 2 beds and bell tents.
