Tel: 01580 763201     Web:    

Situated in a picturesque and peaceful location in the Weald of Kent, just a few minutes from the thriving town of Tenterden. There is one main lake, extending to about 3.5 acres and two smaller lakes. The largest of the lakes lies at the bottom of a sweeping grassy slope, the the pools are tiered so they drain into the main lake. The two smaller lakes despite their size, are surprisingly deep and well stocked with a good head of fish. All of the lakes have large retainer baskets placed around the banks in which anglers can put fish caught. They then select their limit at the end of the fishing session. There is agreed limit of 10 fish that can be caught. All other fish are then returned to the lake. Alternatively, anglers can return fish directly to the water. In this way a successful 'catch and release' system has been adopted and developed. All the lakes are stocked with Rainbow and Brown trout, ranging in size from 1.5lbs to 12lbs. Numerous fish in the 3lb to 6lb class are caught every season. Day and half day permits are available, also sporting permits.
