Coldingham Loch is one of the oldest trout fisheries in Scotland and has built a reputation for providing top quality fishing in a fantastic setting. The loch has been operating as a fishery complemented by holiday accommodation for over thirty years and has built a strong reputation for providing excellent fishing and holiday experiences for its visitors.
We bought the loch and holiday cottages in September 2011 and are committed to building on this reputation so that anglers and holiday makers alike can come and enjoy this wonderful loch and its environs.
Since our arrival, we have enjoyed meeting anglers and holiday cottage guests both regulars and new. What has really struck us is what a special place Coldingham Loch is for many of you out there and it has been a real pleasure to see individuals, groups, clubs and families alike coming along and enjoying the loch and local area.
We continue to ensure the beauty and integrity of the loch is maintained with a keen approach to loch maintenance. As always the stocking of the loch is paramount to its success as an enjoyable and challenging place to fish so this is always at the forefront when planning our stocking. We have also been keen to give the bank anglers better access around the loch and have successfully done this with a programme of cutting back gorse where necessary and leveling off the path where possible and the feedback has been very positive about the improved bank fishing.
As many of you will know we updated Lochside Cottage for the 2012 season and it is proving to be our most popular let with many booking their next stay as they leave. It offers a beautiful warm place for guests to relax and unwind and enjoy its unique position at the loch’s edge…watching the trout rise!
We have also updated Lodge Cottage with a new kitchen and bathroom and double glazing throughout now helps make this lovely traditional cottage a warm and comfortable place to stay
We started a rolling programme of improvement for the chalets and completed Elm Chalet at the beginning of 2014 and Hawthorn chalet at the beginning of 2015. Both are now fully insulated, double glazed and re-clad in locally sourced Scottish larch making them firm favourites for many of our guests. Elm has a lovely sunny decking area at the front looking out over the lawn where it gets the evening sun.
Finally thanks to all the fishermen, neighbours and the local community for making us feel so welcome and supported, it really is appreciated and we look forward to many more years here at Coldingham Loch.
Please ring or email us with any enquiries you may have regarding fishing and/or holiday lets. We look forward to welcoming you to this lovely part of the world.
