They both contain a variety of coarse fish including specimen Rudd, Perch, Chub, Tench and also Koi Carp, Common Carp, Mirror Carp and F1’s.

Maggie’s pond is our recently opened commercial fishery. Originally Maggie’s pond was a beautiful secret garden. Situated a short walk from the cottages, it is easily accessible on foot or by car down the track if you have a lot of equipment to carry.
