We love  to welcome fishing fans to Fairwood Lakes and are proud to have a loyal band of regulars who return time and again. Our lakes have been here for over 25 years and are well stocked with many varieties of Silverfish and Carp. Feedback from those who fish say the location is peaceful.

Our day ticket costs £11 and this is from 8am until 6pm. We can sell our extended ticket from 8am to 9pm for £14. Night fishing needs to be pre-booked and paid for by card if possible at £25 for 24 hours. You can pre-select your 24 hour slot – just call us for availability on 01373 826792.

When fishing, you will have access to your own toilets by the lakes, and our cafe offers a fantastic full English breakfast, takeaway rolls, sandwiches and hot brews to keep you refuelled.

You can fish directly off the floating lodge, but access is restricted on the other lodge balconies.
