They are all suitable for anglers, their partners or family staying in luxury.
They have central heating, fully equipped kitchens, leather couches, good showers - the lot.
Fishing is good too, margin fishing at any time is excellent and night anglers often stop fishing in the very early hours saying “if we didn’t stop we wouldn’t get any sleep” often having landed about 70 Carp in a 24hr session up to 18lb and occasionally bigger.
The Main lake being around 3-4ft deep with shallow margins whereas the Novice’s pool is around 6-7ft deep with plenty of smaller fish, and some good sized Carp, to keep every one happy.

Bill, Just a quick email on behalf of Hazel, myself and Ozzy to thank you for a wonderful stay last week. The accommodation and fishery is a credit to you and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. The flyover Bee eater capped the week!
During the early 1990’s Bob Nudd was an international angling superstar. He had just won the World Freshwater Angling Championships for the second time and would eventually go on to win it four times. In recognition of this achievement the Angling Times, a newspaper with a bigger readership than the Daily Telegraph at the time, organised a write-in campaign helpfully providing a form for readers to complete and mail to the BBC. It worked. Bob garnered over 100,000 votes, winning the award by a country mile.
Alas, it wasn’t to be. For reasons unknown except to the BBC apparatchiks, Bob was disqualified by virtue of his votes being sent in on a form. For the record the award went to the decent, but hardly stellar middle-distance runner Liz McColgan, with rugby’s Will Carling second and soccer player Garry Lineker third.
Hopefully better things are in store for England’s Howard Croston (pictured right) who last week w/c 9th December 2019 became the 39th World Fly Fishing Champion. Contested this year in Tasmania. Huge congratulations to both Howard, for his individual success, and the England team who came in eighth.
It is slightly ironical that neither the brown nor rainbow trout caught in the competition are indigenous to Australasia. Brown trout were first introduced to the continent on 4 May 1864, when 2,700 live brown trout ova, which had been packed in ice since leaving England, were hatched into the Plenty river near Hobart, Tasmania. If I am correct the eggs were reared on the River Itchen at Brambridge, a few miles downstream of Winchester, at the place now known as Qing Ya Xi.
A true case of fishing coming home.
