Enjoy fishing holidays in Wroxham

From your own waterside cottage all the way to the sea

The Norfolk Broads are an angler's dream. Mile after mile of tranquil waters stretch from your own private landing stage (all Wroxham holiday cottages are on the water's edge) all the way to the north sea. That's more than 120 miles of navigable waterway plus numerous inlets and backwaters filled with bream, carp, perch, tench, roach, rudd, eel, and pike. The opportunities for fishing are so plentiful, we've devoted an entire page to the joys of fishing holidays in Wroxham.


Fishing on the Norfolk Broads is a pastime that is over a century old, and the modern Broads have over 300 square kilometres of water on which to cast a line.


Fishing holidays in Wroxham prove popular year after year, with our cottages just off the River Bure providing prime locations to fish, as the many varieties of fish that occupy the Broads look to escape the turbulent water of the main river.


There is a large array of different fish on the Norfolk Broads, with Roach, Rudd, Bream, Tench, Pike, and Perch some of the most common. Carp are rare, with those found on the Broads typically escaped from flooded fisheries, but for those fishing on the River Waveney and Yare, there is still a chance of bagging a catch of well over 10lbs.


For those wishing to cast their rod further afield, there are plenty of fishing launches available for hire nearby, including from Richardson's and The Canoe Man.


The fishing season runs from mid-June to mid-March, and licences can be purchased from the Environment Agency here. If on a family holiday, children under 13 do not need a license, while licenses for those aged 13-16 are free.
