Great fishing, accommodation and entertainment
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.
