About Blackthorn Fishery

The spring fed lake at approx 3.5 acres has been created out of previously water-logged farm land, it was purpose excavated by A.P. Hall, a specialist fishery contractor, who also constructed the well known Monument carp fishery. Depths range from 4ft to 10ft in places, with under-water plateaus, deep holes and visible features in the form of 4 islands, two in each of the North and South' bays.

The lake has a total of 9 swims to fish from:

  • 8 large swims (including 2 doubles)
  • 1 Cabin swim with a large decked area to fish from which is exclusive to anglers staying in the log cabin.

To ensure that there is plenty of water for each angler, there is a maximum of 6 anglers on Blackthorn at any one time.

Pegs are spacious, bounded by logs, covered in gravel or wood-chip and have excellent drainage, to ensure a clean, comfortable, and dry stay in your bivy. Each is accessible via a gravelled path that encircles the entire lake, making transport of your gear from the car park stress-free.
