Fancy a 5lb perch? They’re in here!
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.
