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.

General Comments: Heather & Larry being onsite is a help not a hindrance. Anything you need they will sort it, from fag papers to coffee & bivvy pegs which we needed lol!! They are very sociable & helpful. We fished if we wanted to, Terri kept up with her soaps, myself & Terri only fished 2 nights with no fish caught. Steve did a few nights trying to better his Dad’s fish lol. Very relaxing holiday, also myself & Terri are chuffed to bits with PB’s. We have re-booked for 2021 which says it all. We self-catered as we prefer, supermarket only 10 mins away. Roll on 2021.
