A very private and secure 5 acre lake nestled in 14 acres of natural beauty. This stunning venue boasts the best and cleanest facilities we have ever seen at a fishery and complete with stunning views and an abundance of wildlife.
Amongst the mature oak, elm and pine trees, of which there are many, you are likely to spot red squirrels and if you are lucky, pine martens too. Not to mention the birdlife which is incredibly rich in this mini nature reserve and the bird song is the only background noise you should hear during your stay.
Once you pass through the secure locked gates, you enter a 14 acre paradise and you are left free to roam around the grounds and gardens. The owners, Lin and Neil are English and live on site in their beautiful house, so will be on hand should you require assistance.
The quarry was dug in 1932 and was eventually filled with water in 1971 which has resulted in a stunning venue which looks very different to the norm’ with steep rock faces visible which capture the sun magnificently. The water depths vary from 5 ft to 40 ft and the carp are caught regularly at both extremes. The lake bed is firm and doesn’t have those deep smelly and stagnant silt pockets sometimes found in these deeper waters.
The swims really are something else. It is like walking into a showroom rather than into your average carp swim. They are totally flat and secure and are even carpeted would you believe?
To save space in your vehicle top quality landing nets, weigh slings and cradles are ready and waiting in your swim for you along with permanent weigh stations. So, the owner asks you to leave your own at home which not only protects this amazing fishery, but also saves the smelly wet net and sling scenario in your car. The other item there is no need to travel with is a bivvy as top quality dual skin pram hood bivvies are erected in each swim. This saves the noise and messing around setting up bivvies on arrival and also saves having to pack a wet bivvy down and load it into your car at the end of a session, should the weather be unkind.
There are also two carp barrows available should you require them and Neil also offers to ferry your gear over to the double swim at the far end of the pool which is sat at the bottom of a cliff face, to save you lugging your gear up and down the steps. With this swim being the furthest from the main facilities, there is a portable available on the bank above, or a mountain bike is available to make short work of a trip to the main facilities.
