The Top Lake – our specimen lake

This lake (the right hand lake in the photo) is our original lake with two islands. The banks have mature trees around.

There are  10 pegs and a good assortment of Carp, Bream and Tench in various sizes.

A car accessible peg on level ground is available for wheelchair users (as above) on the top lake. Other easy access pegs are available on both lakes.

The Horseshoe Lake

We opened the Horseshoe lake (left-hand lake in the photo) as a purpose built match lake in June 2007. It also has a constant supply of fresh water into the lake.

The match lake was stocked with some top quality carp from Sport and Leisure Fisheries.

Every year the fish have spawned twice with thousands of fry evident in the margins in the autumn.

We have already had dozens of upper doubles from this lake and a couple of fish up to 22lb.

When ground conditions permit it is possible to drive your tackle to your peg and then return your car to the car park.


Very close by are Elton Giant Mazes and Redhill Extreme Bike Park where the non-anglers in your group can have fun while you fish.
There is also Pirate Island mini golf just across the road.
