Established over 100 years ago, the main lake (Swan Lake) is over two acres in size and boasts stocks of stocks of Carp, Tench, Barbel, Crucians, Roach, Rudd and Perch

With depths ranging from four to eight feet, sizes of Carp and Crucian are in double-figures while Tench are up to 5lbs. There is also a generous supply of silver fish.

Tactics and Bait:

Pole, waggler, method feeder, pellets, meat, corn and maggots. We have no bait ban. We do ask that there are no Carp or Barbel kept in nets.

Hot tips for summer

Floating baits are best for for double-figure Carp which holds bait just beneath the surface. Fish-pole close to margins or reed beds for best results with Tench, Carp and Barbel. Rudd and Roach are best taken close to the surface on maggot and caster. The method feeder with corn, meat and pellet never fails when the going gets tough! Regular weights of 100/200lbs taken on all methods. There are approximately 35 pegs.

Leaver Lake, which has a one acre site and two islands is a relatively new addition to Swan Lake. It is in its third year and has started to mature very quickly. All fishing pegs are flat-leveled grass to water with depths from ranging three to six feet and is stocked with Carp, Tench, Roach, Rudd and Perch and it is not uncommon to catch weights of up to 50lbs.

Tactics and Bait:

Pole, waggler, pellet, corn, meat maggot and caster are all good baits. There are no bait bans.


Pole-fish close in margins brings success most of the time while fishing in water brings best results for Rudd and Roach. Fish out to island with waggler or pole for better-sized Carp and Tench. Keep nets are allowed however, in very hot conditions we may ban their use as you can appreciate. Leaver Lake has approximately 25 pegs.

Please treat all of our fish with care and respect as they are there for your sport. Thank you.
