Fishery Information

Furzebray Carp Lakes features three Exclusive Premier lakes.  Carp anglers will find that this location, set in the middle of the peaceful Devon countryside and surrounded by woodlands as well as green fields and gardens, is home to some of the best carp fishing and holiday accommodations in the South West of England. These lakes and gardens are home to some of the best strains of carp in all of England, including Horseshoe and Orchid Lake cross and English Leaney cross, all of which were handpicked by Tony Kingdon.

The lakes offer a wealth of features, such as islands and overhanging trees, bars, and marginal features, which make it a comprehensive fishing experience as well as a safe haven for carp and other forms of wildlife. The lakes are Island Lake, created in 2006, Willow Lake, created in 2012, and a third lake Copse created in 2015. Tony Kingdon was responsible for the construction and design of the Lakes.
