THIRTY-NINE acres of Le­ices­ter­shire coun­try­side are home to this sports­man’s par­adise, which caters for an­glers and shoot­ers just out­side Lough­bor­ough. An­glers en­joy more than nine acres of wa­ter spread across four large, man-made lakes. Two lakes are ded­i­cated to trout fish­ing, with the oth­ers used by coarse and carp an­glers. The fly lakes have hosted a heat of the Greys Ju­nior Bank Na­tional and are stocked with rain­bows and brown trout gen­er­ally av­er­ag­ing 1lb 8oz to 2lb, although some big­ger fish around the 8lb mark also go in. Cat’s Whisker, Orange Blobs and Dad­dies are re­ported to be suc­cess­ful by an­glers. A se­lec­tion of flies can be pur­chased on-site and fly rods are avail­able for hire. There is rea­son­able ac­cess for an­glers with dis­abil­i­ties although slight in­clines have to be ne­go­ti­ated and there are steps down to one of the lakes. A com­fort­able café is on site, open from 9am to 5pm, serv­ing home-made food and drinks and non-an­glers are also wel­come. Toi­lets are avail­able. The fa­cil­ity is avail­able for cor­po­rate or char­ity func­tions and stag/hen par­ties. In­di­vid­ual visi­tors are also wel­come to fish and shoot dur­ing their visit.
