Fishermen, women and children of all ages and abilities are invited to fish our lakes. It is essentially coarse fishing with Carp (up to 25lbs), Tench, Roach and Bream but do not be surprised if you land the odd Brown Trout as there are a few in there, just to keep the small fry down.



Poachers Hideaway lakes are for the exclusive use of our guests and fishing is open. There are no “pegs”, we simply ask that you treat both the sport and habitat with respect and that children are accompanied by a responsible adult as the water is very deep in places.

Please note the following:

  • £10 per rod (£5 for juniors)
  • The use of groundbait is not permitted
  • No keepnets
  • Barbless hooks only to be used
  • All fish to be returned to the lakes

Local angling shops include the Horncastle Angling Centre on North Street.

Although the fish are partial to tinned potatoes, sweet corn and bread….



Fisherman’s Widow Lodge a fully enclosed glass ‘lodge’ where non-angling party members can sit and enjoy the views without getting their feet wet! This also provides an ideal area for a BBQ.
