Lakeside Holidays in the UK

A stay in one of our lakeside holiday cottages is a great way to escape the stresses of everyday life. The cabins or cottages we select are located in beautiful landscapes providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy some rare peace and tranquillity. For chilled-out evenings watching the sunset over the lake, or relaxed days spent on the water boating and fishing, a lakeside lodge is a must. Take a look at our list of recommendations for accommodation ideas and lake-related things to do.

Retallack Resort & Spa

Retallack Resort & Spa is the perfect place for aquatic activities and lakeside relaxation. Here you'll find Retallack Aqua Park, an inflatable assault course floating in a lake, as well as two well-stocked fishing lakes, the exciting FlowRider wave-riding sport, an artificial beach, a range of other watersports, and more besides.

The Lakes Rookley

Located on the Isle of Wight, The Lakes Rookley certainly lives up to its name, with two gorgeous on-site lakes where watersports and activities for all ages take place, as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools and an on-site eatery. A range of properties are available, some with unrivalled lake views.

Loch Lomond Lakeside Lodges

The Loch Lomond lodges occupy a special place, right next to the magical Loch Lomond. You can enjoy the views across the water from the warmth of a bubbling hot tub or the comfort of your accommodation, or get out on the loch yourself, with canoeing, paddleboarding and fishing just a few of the possibilities.

Sycamore Farm Park

Sycamore Farm Park is a tranquil, 14-acre countryside escape with two large fishing lakes, ideal for keen anglers or anyone who just enjoys waterside ambience in peaceful, unspoilt surroundings. And if you feel like taking a day trip to the seaside, the popular town of Skegness is within easy reach.

Watersports

Looking for pulse-pounding fun and adventurous activities when you head onto the lake? Book a break at Taymouth Marina, where you can get out on the waters of Loch Tay with the on-site activity centre, or Loch Tay Highland Lodges, where activity organisers In Your Element will take you out onto Loch Tay.

Fishing

If you're looking for a lakeside break so you can try and land a big one, why not enjoy a holiday at Trevella Park, which offers 2 well-stocked on-site fishing lakes, or Home Farm Holiday Park, which also has its own lake which brims with common carp, bream and pike? They're both great for keen anglers.

Scenic Views

If you love your lakeside views, book a break at Par Sands Holiday Park in Cornwall, which has its own freshwater wildlife lake to enjoy, as well as being right next to Par Beach. Brynteg Coastal and Country Retreat's lakeside Boat House restaurant also offers food with a view (opening hours vary by season).

Guided Tours

If you'd like to know a little more about the lakes you visit, a stay at St Benedict's Abbey puts you conveniently close to the Cruise Loch Ness boat operators. Bowland Fell Park is also just 30 miles from the Lake District - why not take a day excursion to enjoy a guided boat cruise on Lake Windermere?
