Nettlecombe Fishing Lakes

If you enjoy fishing then you should take advantage of our three lakes that are located a 150-yard stroll down the lane, which is also accessible by car. These man-made but now wholly naturalised lakes cover an area of one and a half acres.

Carp, Roach and Tench

Our fishing lakes are well-stocked with carp, roach and tench of various sizes. The largest recorded fish caught from these lakes to date was a 20lb carp caught by a 12-year-old boy.

As well as being a peaceful place to pass the time and admire the beautiful scenery, the lakes offer something to anglers of all abilities; good sport for the experienced angler and simply a chance to catch fish for the novice.

…what a perfect setting for a spot of fishing in peace. You’re surrounded by the most awesome views, including a rather spectacular sunset, and as there is no through traffic, neither you nor the wee fish are disturbed. TripAdvisor Review.
