Local Fishing

We’re offering guests at Tucking Mill Self-Catering a day ticket pass to fish on Avon and Tributaries Angling Association’s waters for just £30.

Enjoy trout fishing along the beautiful Midford, Cam and Wellow Brooks, as well as coarse fishing on the Bristol Avon, the Somerset Frome and downstream of the weir at Monkton Combe on the Midford Brook.

Catch fish at the early rise before heading into the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath for shopping, attractions, fine dining and more.

This offer is only available to guests staying at one of our three award-winning, cosy cottages which sit along the Midford Brook on Tucking Mill Lane, just ten minutes’ drive from the city of Bath.

Please note:

  • You must have a current EA rod licence. Enquire about this offer when you book with us.
  • You will be given a ticket by us when you buy your day pass. Please carry this with you as you may be asked by the club’s members or bailiffs to show it.
  • Only two rainbow trout may be taken per day ticket. All other fish must be returned. You must also declare your catch.

More terms issued on purchase of day ticket, along with a map of the waters you may fish.

Local Wildlife and Birds

Outstanding natural beauty

Tucking Mill Self-Catering’s cottages are located in the Midford Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The properties are perched on the valley aspect in the hamlet of Tucking Mill, enjoying glorious vistas out across the valley and neighbouring fields. From your chair in the cottage private gardens at Brooks’ View or Fishermen’s Retreat, or on the private terrace up at Tucking Mill View, you can often spot wildflowers, interesting birds and local wildlife. This tranquil setting is an idyllic way to reconnect with nature and while away the hours in the sunny afternoons.

Plenty to explore

We’re also based in the Cotswolds and so the cottages are surrounded by a plethora of trails for walking and cycling. The walks are superb for birdwatchers or adventurers who are happy to wander down different public footpaths and discover something new. Expect wildflowers, forest trails, flowing brooks, and gorgeous Somerset views. Some details on the local walks can be found on our page here.

Local wildflowers

Discover a plethora of floral beauty along local trails and in your garden.

Spot the Birds

The valley is filled with all sorts of interesting birds like owls, larks, tits and blackbirds.
