Smallish lakes with clean swims and few snags. Fish up to 20's lb. Mixed fish in one lake with good sizes of All your favourites! Good breakfast cobs delivered to your swim at the weekends and bank holidays. Portaloo on site (even well stocked with toilet paper!). Just park up and pay at swim. Very friendly. Only downside is a caravan/camping park causes a bit of traffic and people walking dogs.


Great fishing


First trip to the fishery. Two small lakes in a nice setting. Pegs look pretty sound, easy to set up on. Fished the mixed lake for a bit of whip practice, plenty of action, stacks of roach and a couple of bream. Good measure of carp cruising around, so will come back and target those soon. Quality of the fish is good, pegs are clean, portaloo on site and all added in with bank side breakfast cobs if you wanted them, make it an ideal little venue for some pleasure fishing.



If targeting the roach, fish up in the water during the warmer months and spray maggots/pinkies every few minutes or if on the deck, top up the loose feed with small balls of groundbait every 20mins or every 3/4 fish to keep them active in your swim
