The Lakes

Having been enjoyed exclusively by the owners and their friends for a number of years, the lakes which are fed from a local spring have been tended and nurtured to provide healthy fish and great fishing. It is run by a fisherman for fishermen.


Fishing is included in the cost of accomodation. No day tickets are sold which ensures that we are never crowded, ensuring your fishing is peaceful and that there is always a good choice of swims.


There are 4 well stocked lakes available for fishing in addition to a stock pond:

  • Carp lake - with carp up to 32lb
  • 3 mixed lakes - with carp up to 13lb

Two different perch of 5lb were landed in 2012, and plenty have been caught over 4lb. Carp catches over the last few years have averaged 14lb, with unconfirmed reports of a 33lb catch and the record just shy at 32lb 4oz. We have nice tench in the summer months, our recording standing at 9lb, but there is an unconfirmed catch at 14lb 2oz!

We also have a bait shop, so you don't have to travel far for all important bait.
