Original Lake

Lake 1 is part of the original farm and is one of the oldest and most established lakes on site. It has a central island and lots of natural features creating an interesting place of fish. It has an average depth of 4ft to 6ft throughout. It is well stocked with Carp ranging up to 19lbs along with Bream, Tench, Roach and Rudd.

Because of its distance from the other lakes it’s very peaceful and a lovely place to fish when looking for a quiet day. It can be a challenging place to fish because of the natural features around the lake but still a great location to sit and relax.

Lake Location

The Lake is located down the lane by lake two. It is only accessible to residents and residents can receive the gate code to access the lake by asking at reception.
