About Fishing Cottage Holidays

Created for anglers by anglers.

We love fishing.  And know that a holiday isn’t a holiday without at least one day on the water.  We also know about cottages as we offer our own self catering fishing cottage holidays in Northumberland (coincidentally having some fantastic fly fishing within a ten minute drive…).

As such, we understand the difference between cottage owners who have the local knowledge to advise on some decent fishing close by, and those who vaguely state that there is fishing in the area simply to generate more bookings.

It’s the local knowledge that counts – that snippet of information about what tackle to use and when and where best to use it makes all the difference.

In late 2013 we created The Cottage Cooperative, which has a number of websites like this one to help guests find the exact type of cottage they want.  Cottages listed on our websites are owned by like-minded members who abide by a genuine code of advertising standards and are committed to offering a high quality service to guests.

For this reason there will never be hundreds of cottages on this website, but as members must agree to our standards before advertising, you should enjoy more peace of mind when booking.  We may well not yet have a cottage of the size you require in the area you want, but please check back as membership is growing slowly but surely.

All of the cottages in the Fishing Cottage Holidays collection are are listed on this website not only because they have fishing available close by, but also on the understanding that each member must be able to provide some local fishing knowledge to set you on your way.

All you should have to do is arrive, relax and unwind.

Tight lines and happy holidays!
