Our Fishery

Waterloo is comprised of three lakes, each built for a different purpose. Waterloo, Wellington, and the Junior Lake.

Our original Waterloo fishing lake has 35 well-spaced pegs and is available for pleasure anglers and club match bookings. This picturesque lake has a variety of species including carp to 25lbs+, mirror, common, ghost, and true crucian carp, as well as tench, chubb, Barbel, Bream, Roach, and Rudd.

Our Junior lake is a smaller 12 peg lake designed especially for juniors and beginners, aged 8 and above, it provides the perfect environment to learn to fish with good guidance.

Wellington Lake was a purpose-built match fishing lake but has been converted into a private lake for fishing holidays in 2013. This is our Wellington Lakeside Pitches, suitable for 16 years and above, upto two swims per pitch. With 15 extra-large caravan pitches directly adjacent to the water's edge, it is perfect for those who wish to come and stay with us and enjoy a long fishing trip.

The feedback from those fishing on the lakes has been very positive and we have had bags of 100lbs plus being caught.

There is secure parking close to the lake, so it is never too far to go to get to your peg. We have a few disabled/ Elderly parking spaces available behind The Green Man Cabin for those who can't walk as far, for everybody else we have the Anglers Carpark over the bridge. Please do not drive down to the lake in your vehicle.
