The Woodland Retreat venue description
map load error

The lake spans just over three acres in size and is fed by three springs and a small stream; this ensures a good turnover of water even in the summer months. The lake bed is hard and offers excellent bait presentation; you will also find some silty areas by the three mature lily beds that offer sanctuary to the carp. The lake depth averages about two feet at the far margins and drops off to about 8 feet by the lily beds. The lake offers three swims, there are two swims on the dam wall each having their own separate lily beds to fish to, and the third swim is situated at the far margin with its own twenty five metre squared decking area. The lake has been highly stocked with Commons and Mirrors averaging 30lb and reaching up to the 40lb mark, we also have a resident cat fish just shy of 70lb, and several Sturgeons up to 20lb.
