“Fantastic Fishing”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We are about to return for the 4th time to this fishery. You are given such a warm welcome, advice is freely given. It is great fun for all the family. Our children love it. The beauty is that you can just turn up, hire a rod, have little or no experience and catch fish in the bait pond. You only have to pay for what you catch and the cost is very reasonable. You then get to take your fish home and they are delicious. The bait pond is brilliant for children and adults alike, you are practically guaranteed success. We have never returned empty handed! Plus you can fish for a short time, an hour or so, catch a few and the whole experience is well worth the cost. the last time we were there my 11 year old son fished for a couple of hours, we took home 5 lovely rainbow trout and it cost less than £20. You can't buy 5 fresh trout for that price and we had such great fun catching them!

There is also a much larger separate pond for the more serious fly fishermen, but we have never tried that.
