Consisting of three lakes for residents only, the gorgeous Lemington Lakes is a getaway from the everyday.
Nestled in the Cotswold, this is a fishing and holiday facility constructed on 60 acres of woodland with various corners and passages to explore. There’s plenty to do for anglers and non-anglers alike, including accommodations in the form of caravans and bed and breakfast rooms in the Cotswold stone house.
Abbey Lake is a three-acre pleasure lake, with a good stock of homegrown carp mixed with crucians, rudd, and a quality source of roach. Abbey Lake is apt for all abilities, with stocks checked in the winter months.
Sunset Lake is perfect for tench lovers. This two-acre spot is dotted with four sunken islands and has gently sloping margins of five feet.
Finally, Priory Pool is just three-quarters of an acre but it boasts an all-natural surrounding that is hard to beat. Anglers will fall in love with the setting as they plunge into what is warmly known as the “crucian pool.” Along with the crucians, explorers will find roach, rudd, and tench.
