Fishery Information

Lake Betchcott, a Popular Fishing Spot Tucked away in the spectacular South Shropshire hills to the west of the Long Mynd near Church Stretton, is a mature well-stocked stream fed pool that spans two and a half acres. It is approximately five minutes’ walk from the farm, and although only members are permitted on the lake, guests can fish there. Upon arrival at the cottage, each guest is provided with a unique number that corresponds to the lock on the gate.

Two extremely passionate and endearing anglers are the caretakers of the lake, which is kept in a beautiful and amiable manner. Carp, tench, golden orfe, bream, roach, and barbell are just some of the fish that thrive in this body of water. On the side of the pool adjacent to the dam, the water is approximately 12 feet deep, while the other half has an average depth of only four feet. The daily cost of fishing for non-members is £8.
