Spring­field Mead­ows

Fancy a 5lb perch? They’re in here!

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

SET in 14 acres of Devon­shire coun­try­side, Spring­field Mead­ows boasts su­perb fish­ing fa­cil­i­ties com­bined with mod­ern ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Four well-stocked lakes await an­glers at this venue in Bea­wor­thy, avail­able only to those stay­ing in the delightful ac­com­mo­da­tion.

There are three mixed stock lakes and a carp lake hold­ing fish to over 32lb. Two 5lb perch have been caught in re­cent years, with dozens over 4lb. The tench show well in sum­mer on the mixed lakes, with fish to over 9lb com­mon­place along with ru­mours of a 14lb 2oz spec­i­men.

It’s not all big fish, though, as plenty of bites from rudd, roach and cru­cians can be had on sim­ple float tac­tics.

Three lodges over­look the mead­ows and lakes, each sleep­ing 4-6 vis­i­tors. Each lodge com­prises lounge with TV, two dou­ble be­d­rooms, bath­room with bath/shower, hot wa­ter, gas heat­ing and bait fridge. Linen is pro­vided, and each lodge has its own veranda. If these are booked, there’s the West Wing An­nexe which sleeps two and has a fully equipped kitchen.
