Wood­land Waters

Great fish­ing, ac­com­mo­da­tion and en­ter­tain­ment

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

FIVE lakes here give the vis­it­ing an­gler so much to go at that they’ll need to book in a lengthy stay to get the best out of it all! Wood­land Waters has a wide range of ac­com­mo­da­tion and all the fa­cil­i­ties you’d ex­pect, in­clud­ing a well-stocked restau­rant and bar. It’s a real win­ner with an­glers from the Mid­lands and South York­shire, and just as pop­u­lar with day ticket an­glers too.

The 14-acre Spec­i­men Lake is a mainly carp wa­ter but also holds bream, rudd, roach, perch and pike . Next door is the Match Lake, home to tench well into dou­ble fig­ures, bream, roach, rudd, perch and carp.

Birch Lake is Wood­lands’ new­est lake, heav­ily-stocked with carp to 10lb, tench, bream, roach, and rudd. For plenty of ac­tion, check out the Small Carp Lake and Roach Pool, both stuffed with carp, tench, roach and cru­cians.

Bring your own tent or car­a­van and you can stay on the large site that has two amenity blocks, elec­tric and non-elec­tric pitches, pic­nic ar­eas and a chil­dren’s play area. If you fancy a more solid roof over your head, check out the range of lodges.

These in­clude the Lake View and Lake View en-suite lodges over­look­ing the Match Lake and of­fer­ing spa­cious open plan ac­com­mo­da­tion on one level – lounge and din­ing area, break­fast kitchen, dou­ble bed­room (en-suite with a shower room) and two twin be­d­rooms, bath­room and ter­race. The Park Home Lodges over­look the Spec­i­men Lake with a lounge and din­ing area, kitchen, bath­room, dou­ble and twin be­d­rooms and out­side seat­ing area.

All are equipped with flat screen TV’s, oven & hob, cen­tral heat­ing, full-sized fridge, dish­washer, mi­crowave, wash­ing ma­chine and bar­be­cue.

New for 2016 are the Wood­land Rooms with a king-sized bed, shower room, tea and cof­fee fa­cil­i­ties and wall-mounted TV. All are dis­abled-friendly.

Check out the Woody’s Bar and Lake View Restau­rant of­fer­ing home­made, lo­cally-sourced food and a range of ales, beers and wines. The bar is equipped with a pool ta­ble, dart­board, juke box, French boules and two large flat-screen TVs which reg­u­larly show sport­ing events.
