Betty’s Lake


Chapel Road, Barns Green, Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 0PR

Fishery Information

One of Sumners Ponds waters, Betty’s Lake is suitable for experienced anglers only. Surrounded by beautiful trees, this specimen water is stocked with mirror carp to 35 lbs, pike to 18 lbs and roach. There are 3 well-placed islands and a number of spacious dugout swims that are perfect for carp anglers. This lake is the most challenging among the Sumners Ponds, but is also known to be the most rewarding.

Night fishing is permitted but prior booking is required. Please note that carp cradles are required to fish this lake, regardless of target species.

What size do the fish go to?

Mirror carp go to 35 lbs and pike to 18 lbs.

What tactics work well?

Tiger nuts along with a healthy scattering of free offerings work well for fishing on this water. During warmer months, carp patrol in the shallower spots around the island so take time to choose your spot. Darker baits tend to work best here. Some anglers catch well on zig-rigs when the conditions are favourable.

What facilities are on site?

There are 2 parking areas that are suitable for disabled people. Both are located close to the wood-chipped swims. There are also camping facilities on site.

Is parking available?

Parking is available on site.
