Only open on Sunday afternoons, but with free admission, the former home of the author of The Compleat Angler contains a small museum about fishing and will be of interest to anyone who enjoys the history of angling.

The cottage is small. If you are interested in seeing Izaak Waitons Cottage this can be viewed in 30- 40 mins. You can then go to other nearby attractions. This is not a full day out but is interesting.

This attraction is easy to find, really well sign posted, However there are selected opening hours so make sure it is actually open before going. The cottage and its surroundings bring to life the ambiance of the "compleat angler"
