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 and 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.

Yearly, double figures are caught. 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.

Guests staying at Nettlecombe Farm can fish free of charge, and the lakes are also open to the public for a daily ‘per rod’ charge of £5.00.   Get Full Details on Fishing at Nettlecombe Farm
