Oakwood Fisheries is a stunning five acre mature tree lined estate lake created in 1862 for the local chateau.


It has 6 purpose built large wood chipped swims each one carefully designed to provide interesting features to fish to.


It’s a real carp anglers dream with gravel plateaux’s, islands, over hanging trees, lily pads and deep margins.


The average depth of the lake is between 5 -7 feet and the lake bed consists of clay, gravel and rich silt.


The banks are easily accessible and car access to the swims is permitted to unload your tackle upon arrival.


The lake can accommodate up to 4 anglers as this leaves space where you can move around.


The whole estate of 19 acres is fully fenced and on-going fishery management has seen the lake rejuvenated back to its best after the lake had been left to the elements for generations.


During your visit you can also observe the abundance of natural wildlife, everything from deer to red squirrels and black kites all reside in the mature woodland at Oakwood Fisheries.

 

There’s a newly constructed luxury toilet & shower block incorporating a hydrostatic shower.

There are electric points for charging phones and baitboats, large chest freezers for storing frozen baits and you will also find a microwave, fridge and kettle in the cabin for your convenience.

There is a large seating area with views over the lake where you can enjoy your evening meals.

We offer bait boat hire and the use of a rowing boat for snagged fish.

New for 2017 is free WiFi access.

 


 
 

 

Cheryl’s food package is an essential part of your stay.

Cooking is Cheryl’s favourite pastime and home cooked really does mean home cooked and plenty of it!
 

It has received great reviews from our guests over the years, take a look at the feedback.

A breakfast baguette will be delivered to your swim daily so no need to reel the rods in.

The 12 inch baguette is freshly cooked and still hot upon arrival. It is deep filled with free range fried eggs, bacon and sausages. This normally keeps our guests going all day until the evening meal.

The evening meal is served at the large seated area next to the cabin over looking the lake at a time to suit you or should the weather be bad under a covered seated area.

It consists of tradition favourites such as:


•Toad in the hole with roast potatoes, green beans and gravy
•Lasagne with garlic bread and chips
•Cottage pie with minted peas and a fresh homemade loaf of bread
•Italian meat balls with spaghetti and garlic bread
•Chicken and mushroom pie with mash and seasonal vegetables
•Rodeo burgers with chips and homemade onion rings and coleslaw
•Homemade quiche with jacket potatoes and salad

There is also a reserve meal of sausage casserole, mash and hot fresh rolls if one of the above does not take your fancy.

The cost of the full food package (breakfast & evening meal) is 125 euros per person upon arrival.
 

At Oakwood Fisheries you have the advantage of a commercial bait rolling factory on site.


We roll all baits fresh to order the day before the date of your holiday so you are using the freshest bait possible, free of preservatives and rolled using free range eggs. Please ensure you order at least 2 weeks before your holiday date for this service.

We offer 4 different boilies, 2 different fishmeal based baits which are made from the highest quality ingredients, a nut based boilie and a milk protein for the colder months.

We also offer pop ups, hard hook baits and we can provide you with fresh hook bait paste to match your chosen boilie.


We offer special discounted prices for anglers fishing the lake, kg bags for £39.99.


We are happy to discuss any requirements you may have, you can customized the flavor of the boilie if you wish.
