Our lake is a valuable asset, a wildlife haven and the perfect place to unwind and discover the wonders of Mother Nature.
There is nothing more relaxing than sitting by the water and watching the acrobatic swallows and house martins, as they swoop for flies and a drink. If you are lucky, you may even see a blue flash announcing the presence of the resident Kingfisher. As dusk falls, and it gets “dimpsey” (a Somerset expression for half-light), you can also spot bats flying in and out of the trees.
There is a healthy stock of coarse fish that provides a varied challenge but always with some success. Find out more about fishing here.
As a designated wildlife quiet area, we work hard to protect the flora and fauna. To help us with this important work please follow our Lake Rules.
Be aware that the lake area is enclosed by fencing that has two strands of electrified wire to protect the lake wildlife from predators. The fence is well signed warning of the risk of electric shock so please ensure that you avoid contact with the electrified strands.
Please also ensure that you close the gate on entering and leaving the lake area.
