Description:

(Now updated with shower/toilet block)

“The Outpost” is a fabulous lakeside fishing retreat and scenic getaway. You have the entire lake and surroundings to yourselves in total privacy on our private 600 acre estate.

This is our largest lake with the best stamp of fish for the carp specimen hunter.

The cabin is situated on the northern side of the lake facing south and gets the sun all day, sat on the edge of the lake with a large veranda extending out over the water. This cabin sleeps 2.

You will have the entire lake and surrounding area  to yourselves in a very special location completely unspoilt and remote from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This is not a match fishing venue, its more for people who enjoy good fishing combined with appreciation of rural peaceful countryside, calm and quiet in a beautiful setting!!

Comments “Stunningly Awesome ” and “Utter paradise”have been amongst a few of the glowing reviews received to date.

Fishing:

This old secluded 2 acre carp lake is hidden away in the quiet Herefordshire countryside and was built in mind for fisherman and countryside enthusiasts. The lake was personally stocked by myself almost 20 years ago with a quality strain of both common and mirror carp, and a few tench. They have matured and grown over the years and are great fighters.This is a very special location, protected and nurtured by myself and I am keen to host anglers who appreciate and enjoy the location and leave it as unspoilt as they find it .

There are quality carp to 29lbs ,there are a few large tench, more tench and perch introduced 2017 and a 7lb eel was caught last year. The lake has yielded the odd large roach and also 1 or 2 Crucian Carp.
