Specimen Lake



About The Lake

This lake was the first to be created on the site in 1990, transforming this potato field into the lovely complex we have today.
The specimen lake is a 2 acre mature water with depths from 2 feet to 12 feet and is home to some great fish.
All the fish are English and have grown to their sizes in this lake with no artificial help, just a good strong strain of fish.
The lake is surrounded by trees and bushes with three islands to add that special feature.
This picturesque lake has many features from a good variation in depth, to weed and lily beds, overhanging trees and bushes, along with the array of wildlife.

With homegrown Common and Mirror Carp in excess of 35lb, Tench to over 8lb, and Wels Catfish to over 55lb this is certainly a lake to test any competent angler.

Limited season permits are available, to get on the waiting list you will undergo a detailed reference process.
