Fishing at Head Fen Country Retreat, the ultimate fishing holiday

Four Lakes to Fish at Head Fen

We have four on site-lakes to enjoy some great fishing on our ten acre complex. One of them is exclusively available to lodge guests only, the reservoir, which holds our top specimen fish.

The Reservoir Specimen Fish Lake

This is our specimen lake holding a very good head of 20lbs+ carp, the record currently stands at an amazing 33lbs. The Reservoir is for the exclusive use of lodge guests, and the Cathedral View luxury lodges enjoy fishing straight from their decking. This is what makes Head Fen Country Retreat such a good fishing holiday.

Tosh’s, Trev’s and Snake Lake

Trev’s lake is the largest at 36 pegs, stocked with carp up to 25lb and a good head of cracking fish including Chub from 5lb, Bream from 6lb, Barbel from 8lb, Tench from 6lb PLUS F1’s, Roach, large Perch, and Gudgeon. Tosh’s Lake is 13 pegs and has Common, Mirror, and Ghost Carp which go up to 15lb, plus Bream up to 6lb. Snake Lake is a 28 peg lake, 13 yards wide, and an average depth of 4ft down the middle to 2ft in the margins. This lake holds nothing but Carp from 1lb to 12lb with lots of F1’s too, making it a perfect venue for angler’s looking for some serious sport on the pole.

A Magical Fishing Holiday

Ten luxury lodges all with hot tubs accommodating two – six people and one cottage suitable for families of up to six guests. The fishing caters to both novices and advanced anglers with a good mix of commons and mirrors in the four lakes as well as bream, tench, roach, chub and ide.
