There are two stunning fishing lakes both being well stocked with Carp, Tench and Bream. Both the lakes have been man-made and over the years have matured and naturalised with the beautiful surroundings.

Old Lake

The old lake is very shallow but full of carp up to 17 lbs. The average stamp is around 5 to 7 lbs.

When you “hook in” to a carp you a guaranteed great fun with a good fight because the lake is shallow, the carp tend to steam off like a train because they can’t go down.

Best baits are Pellet, Maggot, sweetcorn & worm. There are also some decent Skimmers, Roach and Perch to be had.

 

New Lake

The new lake also holds some decent carp. The stamp is a bit smaller but a lot more fish are available. The small carp are very dark in colour go off like a rocket, great fun for all anglers, young & old.

This is more of a traditional match lake with an island running along the middle so lots of scope to fish. A lot of success comes when fishing in the margins or against the far bank of the island.
