Our Lake

Genets carp lake is a 60 year old man-made carp lake of just over 5 acres, fed by a natural spring, with a silt over clay bottom.



The anglers lodge with showers & toilets is situated on the far bank overlooking the lake.



We offer an excellent optional food package with generous portion sizes which will see you through the day...



We always hold stock of the following on-site but in order to maintain our stock levels we do ask that you pre-order your bait.


Equipment Hire

We have equipment for hire. Let us know in advance so that we can be sure it is ready.



You can find out all you need to know about our lake rules here.

General Comments: Fantastic week, started off well & listened to Larry which is a good idea, unprecedented hot weather slowed it down. Really friendly atmosphere & the food is excellent.
