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!

I’ll start with a couple of recommended places!

Name: Tattershall Lakes, Lincoln – Family Friendly + Hot Tubs!!

Pod/ Lodge: More a log cabin with all mod cons than true glamping.

Number: Lots

Lake size: There are a few lakes on-site with the largest being 15 acres.

Reported stock: Carp to 28lb and mixed carp and coarse fishing all round at the lakes

Website: https://www.awayresorts.co.uk/tattershall-lakes/

Info: This looks a great place for staying while fishing. You’ll need to check out the lakes and properties with private pegs to find the better spots! This is a spot that has everything for family entertainment as well as fishing and a hot tub – what more could you ask for?
