FISHING & LAKES

There are eleven lakes across the farm, six of which are well stocked with fish (common carp, mirror carp, and ghost carp, green and golden tench, and bream) and two dedicated to wildfowl (coots, moorhen, dabchicks, mallard, teal, widgeon, and even nesting tufted duck) along with swans and Canadian geese.

The soil on the farm lends itself well to digging lakes, as the soil type is red clay.  All the lakes, bar one, have a weed free, clay bottom.   Four of the ponds are clear span, have no islands and are traditional bowl shape - they vary in depth to 12 ft.  

*Guests are asked to use barbless hooks, and no keep nets allowed.
