Formerly a run-down sheep farm, the hideaway has been converted into a series of six beautiful cottages. Many of which have stunning views over the Lincolnshire countryside and even Tattershall castle!

When we said pet-friendly log cabins with fishing, we meant it. Dogs are permitted on the site, with one exception. The owners kindly ask that 'fighting breeds' are left at home.

#5. Fairwood Lakes

pet friendly log cabins with fishing UK

A holiday retreat with fishing included? Sounds like our idea of heaven.

Fairwood Lakes offers a 'fish while you stay' pass. Regardless of what accommodation you go for, it will be a trip to remember (we'd opt for the hot tub lodge).

The standout accommodation of Fairwood lakes is the floating lodge. A cabin located in the middle of the lake, step outside the sliding doors, and you are at your swim. It's also a rather nice place to relax and have a glass of wine in the evening!

If floating lodges aren't your thing, there are 4 other options, including an outdoor hot tub jacuzzi.

With regards to pet-friendly fishing, you'll find plenty to keep you occupied.

The lakes are well stocked with various species, including huge bream, perch, pike, roach, chub, and of course pike, which are beginning to push the 30lb mark.

And if the fish aren't biting, there is always the Salisbury countryside to explore on a walk with the dog.

#6. Lodge on a Lake (Cefn Mably Lakes)

best UK carp fishing holidays lodge on a lake

Cefn Mably lakes are pleasing to the eye and promise to put a bend in your rod.

They represent some of the best pet-friendly log cabins with fishing, hands down. Only a short hop from Cardiff, you'll find these wooden lodges perch alongside the very water you will be fishing.

Some even feature their own private patio area, so you can be out of the shower and fishing in about 2 minutes flat!

Speaking of fishing (which is why you are here), Spring Lake began life as a trout fishing lake before huge carp were introduced in 2011.

Most of the smaller 'bits' are removed, allowing the carp the opportunity to grow considerably.

With over forty fish pushing the 20lb mark, there'll be plenty to go at. Suppose you are looking at fishing from your pet-friendly cabin.

In that case, we advise opting for either the Osprey or Kingfisher cabins. There are other lakes on-site, but these are a short walk… Take the dog with you!
