What a lake, i would defiantly recommend this place to anyone looking for an trip like no other is faultless, beautiful fish, well looked after, nice sizes.

The swims are very easy to get to, large & tidy with gravel on them

I’m only 12yrs old & fished this lake with my family for the 1st time this year, the swims are very easy to get to, large & tidy with gravel on them.
Over a couple of days of night fishing I beat my personal best & caught a 47lb 8oz mirror ‘Toenails’ I also caught a 42lb 10oz & 18lb mirror, & a 21lb common.
There is a nice clean bathroom with Hot water to use when ever you need a hot shower, the bathrroom & toilet are very clean.
The Bailiff makes lovely hot meals…. I have been promised i will be able to return to fish this lake soon as i now can’t stop thinking about getting back there, I will be back for sure!

Lovely clean fishery

Lovely clean fishery, well maintained with some stunning carp to be had. Facilities are fantastic and don’t bother taking any food as the meals on site are awesome! Easy to get to, WiFi access, hot showers and being able to drive to your swim is a real luxury when you consider everything we haul around with us nowadays.  With a progressive management plan this is a great carp fishery for all carp anglers and set in beautiful countryside abundant with wild life it has to be a 10/10 for me. Pom.

Lovely location and has all the facilities you could want or need

I had the pleasure of visiting the lake earlier in the year it’s in a lovely location and has all the facilities you could want or need.  Lake and swims are well laid out challenging enough for the experienced angler, nice also to have the option to get a stalking rod out as well and go find them. I would defy anyone to go there and not enjoy it.

Book with confidence, I will be back soon to explore the local area and waterways. Rich Shaw.
