Carp and course fishing for all ages

We have two established and well stocked fishing lakes. Horseshoe Lake is in a beautiful location close to the forest and is open to everyone. Woodland Grove Lake is in the ‘adults only’ area.

Horseshoe Lake

Horseshoe Lake is situated in a fenced off area next to Golden Meadow. This is the newer of our two fishing lakes and has been re-stocked with Common and Mirror Carp up to 25lb, plus Rudd, Tench, Roach, Koi and Ghost Carp.

Horseshoe Lake can be fished by all on a dawn to dusk basis. However, children under 14 must be supervised at all times by an adult (18 years of age or over).

Woodland Grove Lake

Woodland Grove Lake is our oldest fishing lake which has now been established for some years and contains Bream, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Tench & Carp (Mirror, Common, Ghost, Crucian, Grass & Koi).

This lake can only be fished by anglers of 18 years and over on a dawn to dusk basis. Some pitches are on the edge of the lake, which enables you to fish from your awning.

Catch Report & Pictures

Your catch reports and pictures are most welcome and if possible we will place these on the website.
